Well that didn’t take long. Just a week after we first broke the news that Ducati is introducing a new 959 Panigale, the new model has now been spotted undergoing testing (i.e. posing for spy photographers).

The motorcycle depicted appears to be an amalgam of Ducati’s 1299 and 899 models. The fairing, mirrors and exhaust appear identical to the larger Panigale (with the model number covered up with masking tape) while the ten-spoke wheels, Brembo monobloc brakes and aluminum double-sided swingarm are from the 899. The suspension also appears to be the same as the 899’s chassis, with a Showa fork and Sachs rear shock.

Looks basically the same as the other Panigale bikes. Differences are minor and I feel as though I already know what the Panigale looks like and am a fan. It's more about the specs for me.
Yeah it's nothing really new, one look at the line up on the Ducati site of what you may have seen in person already and you've seen just about all you need to see.

It's just nice to see were getting some trickle down from the bigger bikes.
