Built by ourselves for the 2016 SA (South Australia) State Open Superbike Title series.
Starting with a brand new bike, no expense was spared in maximising the potential of the Ducati Panigale 959.
Ridden by Howard Sabey, the result was Runner Up to Willie Strugnell in the SA State Titles (Open Class). Competing against R1's, ZX10's and BMW S1000RRs', the 959 was a tremendous performer. Giving away a little at the top end to the litre 4 cylinders, it made up with launch off the line, braking capability, corner speed and drive out of the corners.
