Pricing for the new model is the same price as the 848 Evo it replaces in the local lineup.
With more power, less weight and more technology thanks to the approach taken to design and the appropriate use of materials, Ducati Australia say the new 899 Panigale is a better sports bike in every way.
A new way to access the exclusive world of Ducati Superbikes, the highly-anticipated 899 Panigale is billed as a 'Supermid' machine, providing the thrill of the new generation 1199 Panigale with the refined character of an everyday streetbike.
The brand-new Superquadro engine produces 148hp with 73lb-ft (99Nm) of torque to achieve an outstanding power-to-weight ratio and ride enhancing agility.
With a dry weight of 169kg the 1199 silhouette underlines the family DNA, while the Ducati Quick Shift, Ride-by-Wire, triple stage ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Engine Brake Control continue the benchmark introduced with the award-winning 1199 Panigale.
With carefully designed, rider-friendly features such as increased seat cushioning and performance enhanced gearing for mid-range rideability, the new model achieves a mix of Authentic Italian Performance with everyday useability.
