Ugly Duck – First Video of Japanese Spec Ducati 1199 Panigale

Earlier this month we brought you the visual insult that is the Japanese spec Ducati 1199 Panigale.  In order to quieten the big twin sufficiently for the Japanese market, Ducati have specified a very large single side mounted silencer amongst other changes.  Now thanks to good spotting by reader Yousef we bring you video of the eyesore on track.

  1. übel O_o

  2. Tasteless concept… hope its juts for kicks

  3. Dude…this like month old news… I posted it myself to! The time change with new Zealand must be getting larger somehow

  4. Oh well, I never saw it so it’s new to me!

  5. The video only had a few hundred views so it can’t have been picked up much Alex :)

  6. Hmm, you must be getting old

  7. WTF?? Why……??

  8. Ohhhh, little too much brain here and NOT enough heart! Talk about your teacher scribbling over your awesome doodle in your Math book! Lol

  9. After the article there is the usual “If you liked this post please consider becoming a Fan of Ducati News Today on Facebook and Following us on Twitter.”
    I found this ironic because of how much I didn’t like this article!
    Whatever happened to form over functionality. GOSH! ^^

    At least the rest of us get to enjoy it in all it’s beauty!

  10. Ducati definitely could have done more to exhaust then it did. SF cans or something a bit more ‘designed’ less stuck on.

  11. I am thinking that the DP Termi full system will be in VERY HIGH DEMAND in Japan for the 1199 to fix that 851 style muffler. At least they could have made it look like a BIMOTA DB-7 Zard muffler…..
