Ducati will bid adieu to its flagship motorcycle, the 1299 Panigale with one last edition. Till now, Ducati, with the help of derogation or end of series exemptions, was still selling the Euro-III 1299 Panigale. But the brand will now replace the legendary 1299 Panigale with an all new model. Interestingly, the 1299 Panigale successor will use a V4 engine instead of the L-Twin powermill. The new engine will be based on Ducati’s 1000cc Liquid-cooled, 90° V4, evo desmodromic DOHC motor that propels their MotoGP machine.
