The 899 Panigale is a super-sports bike, red in tooth and claw. However if one seeks more out of the 899, Ducati are offering a host of parts through two new packages – Touring and Sports. The Sports package includes carbon-fibre covers for the ignition switch and rear shock-absorber, and an adhesive carbon tank-protector. The carbon-fibre treatment extends to heel guards for rider foot-pegs, and the sprocket cover. In addition to this, an aluminium tank plug, handlebar-end weights and the number plate holder are also available on offer.
Although the ergonomics of the 899 Panigale are more track-oriented, one may also use it as a sport-tourer. To address touring needs, Ducati offer the Touring package that includes a radiator protection kit, more comfortable seat, and an anti-theft system. Accessories include a tank-bag as well.
Ducati have a number of parts from both packages available enabling one to pick and choose them to suit their individual taste exactly.
