Pierobon’s Take on the Ducati 899 Panigale

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

When the Ducati 899 Panigale came out, there was some pushback from Ducatisti over the middleweight superbike’s double-sided swingarm. Ducati clearly had to water-down distinguish the 899 from the 1199 for would-be owners, especially after giving the Ducati 899 Panigale a near-literbike engine displacement.

We think if Ducati had fashioned the 899’s swingarm after the piece built by Pierobon, then perhaps the Italian manufacturer’s fans would have been less upset. Throw in an aluminum fuel tank, racing fairing stay, and trellis rear subframe, and you have one sharp looking 899 Panigale…and it doesn’t even have all its clothes on yet.

If you enjoy this, then you’ll really like Pierobon’s trellis frame for the Ducati 1199 Panigale, and the company’s Ducati-powered track bike, the Pierobon X60R.
