Naked Panigale – Picture Special

We hot-footed along to Bike Sport Developments the other day, experts in Magneti Marelli and all electrical gizmos for bikes, and found this – a Ducati 1199 Panigale being prepped for a German IDM Superbike team. The boss, Mickey B, was wiring-in a Marelli loom, so considering I had a camera with me, it would’ve been rude not to snap some pics of a Panigale undressed. Enjoy…

Engineering and fabrication at its finest


Monocoque for all to see


Airbox is part of the ‘frame’. Mahoosive throttle bodies spray the juice


Clock mount ready for Marelli dash


Electronic suspension is ditched for racing


It’s lucky Mick knows what he’s doing…




Beautiful from all angles
