Ducati 1199 Panigale on the dyno

Hear the new Ducati's engine put through its paces

FOOTAGE of Ducati's 1199 Panigale on the dyno has been revealed by Italian magazine Motociclismo.

The minute-long clip shows the Panigale being rolled-on in 4th gear from next to no revs. Curiously, it's the first time we've ever seen anyone dynoing a bike wearing full riding gear, including a helmet. We can only imagine he's a test-rider, fresh in from a road ride.

Motociclismo has been at the forefront of scoops on the new Panigale and we can only imagine they enjoy a healthy relationship with the factory. If Ducati didn't want us to see this footage, a video camera would have never got close to the dyno room.
