As you are all familiar with the Ducati Performance (DP) levers, they are top quality levers that are adjustable and folding, but are rather on the expensive scale of the price range.

TWM in Italy is the manufacturer for these wonderful pieces of art, and they do sell the same levers as the DP levers under their own brand. The only difference is, the TWM ones will not have the Ducati crest logo etched on it.

Here are some pictures of the levers



They are available in Shorty or Standard length.



You can purchase them directly from www.motomillion.com

When you use the forum discount code 959PANIGALE-Q2 they are only $189.95 and shipping is always fast and free within USA.

Affordable and quick shipping options for international customers as well.

Really bummed that the gb didn't pan out.

I'll probably get a set at some point. Does this promotion expire?

I'm the kind of chap that will change out the MC as well as the Levers at the same time, for better performance and looks... not just the levers for looks.

A master cylinder upgrade is not something most street riders need or want to concern themselves with. If pinnacle performance was the key then they didn't even buy the Pani with the best brakes...

How are these levers aesthetic and not performance enhancing?

Ergonomics, folding in the event of a crash, optionally shorter length for rider preference.


I'd peg the CRG carbon fiber levers as closer to aesthetic only if I had to pick a set but even then the finer pull adjustability alone is worth it. Stock lever adjustability is too coarse for me. I still haven't found a good clutch position I like.

@Kevin.H - I was only stating my opinion. Agreed that most don't need or want a MC upgrade. Ergonomics are extremely similar for most levers, and let's be honest - in the event of a crash, any affected part is going to be replaced. At least in my book.

If you can't find a good clutch position perhaps you should twist your bars CCW so your wrists aren't tweaking.

Man I'm in the same boat. Totally agree with you about finding a suitable clutch position for the past two months.

The discount code posted here will expire at the end of June but there will be a new one made right away that will be valid for another 3 months. This it the discount code for the forum members and we will always support fellow members.

Out of curiosity how difficult are these to install?
Fairly simple.

Remove the bolt holding the lever in place, remove the master cylinder pin, install the master cylinder pin that came with the lever kit, install the lever in place, re-install the lever pivot bolt.

There should be a how-to video done soon.

Should literally take 10 min. It's only a couple of screws, slip out old, slip in new, screw back. ( I have only previous experience on a Ninja 300 lever change with no research into the 959's lever change)

The levers themselves are very simple. You just need to remove the lever pin and nut. The tricky part as I have found is getting the actuator pin on the lever back into the dust cover "easily", it always seems to take some patience to get that sucker in there properly.

Any chance getting the ducati performance rearsets half the price?
I can ask around the contacts which I have to see who makes them and if they are available "unbranded" for re-sale.

These work great! I installed them in just a few minutes!
Looking great! Share more pictures! :D

Motomill, do you still have TWM shorty levels?
Just received a big stock of these, both shorty and standards are well stocked.

For me, it was much easier to put it into the dust cover first. Then to slide the lever into it. But getting the actuator pin into the dust cover reminded me of my teenage days with the ladies. ;)
