Last minute Xmas gift ideas from Ducati...

There’s almost a whole week to sort out Christmas gifts, so this is maybe a little premature. But the good guys from Bologna have released details on a new Special Edition version of its 959 Panigale superbike. Just 25 of the fancy super-middleweight twins will be brought into the UK in either ‘basic’ form, or a double-trick ‘carbon’ version.

The main attraction is a smart Akrapovic titanium race silencer, which comes with appropriately-reshaped lower fairing panels. So you drop some mass, get rid of the style-free stock pipes, while improving both power and acoustics. There’s fancy levers, a double bubble screen, single-seat cowl, and loads more trinketry on there too. The carbon version, obviously, has a stack of carbon fibre add-ons.

The ‘standard’ Special Edition version costs £15,995, and the Carbon version is a grand more. More info from your local dealer or www.ducatiuk.com


• Ducati’s also offering this sweet little 12” pedal version of its fabby new Monster 1200R. Made by top Italian bike firm Bianchi, it boasts an aluminium frame, removable black stabilisers and even comes with its own water bottle and cage. Get ‘em hooked young is what we say.
