The 1000cc class of modern performance motorcycles often gets all the attention, because it’s assumed that bigger is inevitably better. With the success that the Ducati 999 and 1098 have had on the World Superbike circuit, it’s hard to blame anyone for thinking this. While 1000cc bikes are indeed special, many riders can benefit by taking notice of the unique characteristics that a smaller-displacement bike can offer. In the Ducati stable, that smaller displacement bike is the 899 Panigale.
You see, performance isn’t always all about making power. Yes, we carry Ducati 899 parts that will help you extract more power from the 899 motor, but if it’s acceleration you’re seeking, power-to-weight ratio is the name of the game. The technologies available in modern engines allow 900cc bikes to pack a power-to-weight ratio greater than those of 1000cc bikes from the last generation. In addition, since the smaller engine has less rotating mass, it can achieve higher RPMs, delivering the screaming top-end performance that makes riding one of these bikes on the road such a blast. That lighter weight means they turn in and break extremely well, too.
899 Panigale Aftermarket Parts
It’s been a long time since any road-going offering from Ducati has suffered from a lack of power. The fact is, the 899 helped define the modern supermid category. This model was so popular that in 2013, the 899 outsold the Honda CBR 125 in the United Kingdom, a bike five times cheaper than the Panigale. The feat has been compared to a Ferrari California outselling a Ford Focus. Of course, the model’s success has helped these become attainable bikes for those of us who didn’t purchase one brand new. Quality aftermarket Ducati 899 parts have become available, allowing owners to tune and customize their motorcycles.
