First round of Duc 959 spy shots hit the web.

Some things to take note of are, the wider front farings, mirrors and lights from its bigger brother, the 1299:

Lol, just paint it in red and the front fairing will look like the 1299.
Side note, I think the front brakes with the radial-mounted Brembo monobloc calipers are the same as the 899's. At least it looks like it.

Those pictures are in amazing quality! I managed to zoom in and see the Brembo calipers but I can't tell if they're the same as the 899 Panigale's.

Might be hard to tell but I won't be surprised if that's the case since sharing parts like that helps with them to be much more efficient in areas that don't need to be fully revamped, instead just brought up to a level appropriate for the package if needed.

for sure, what was it... the stroke of 1299 and the bore of 899... they've already got the appropriate heads and rods hanging around...the whole engine is probabaly a hybrid of 12 and 899 bits and bobs ahaa
