Featured Listing – 2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale S Tricolore

Update 12.6.2021: This bike has SOLD! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Despite its light weight and minimal monocoque chassis, Ducati managed to fit many firsts, extremes and superlatives into the 1199 Panigale S.  RSBFS reader Jason has a one-owner Panigale S is in the Tricolore livery with a few choice upgrades and just 1,457 miles.

2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale S Tricolore asking price $19,500

No longer suspended from a trellis frame, the Superquadro engine in the Panigale is a structural member, and a small but robust aluminum casting carries the adjustable headstock.  The subframe holding the single-sided rear suspension connects to the back of the engine, and the integral aluminum seat carrier is above.  In between there’s an all-new L-twin, with cams driven by a gear/chain combination, and extraordinarily oversquare cylinders ( 112mm bore and 60.8mm stroke ).  Mitsubishi fuel injection and ride-by-wire throttle are in control of 195 hp, with the help of multiple electronic aids.  With engine braking control providing slipper functionality, the wet clutch has been fitted with a quickshifter.  Monobloc Brembo calipers appear to be poured over their 30mm pistons, on 330mm rotors and of course multi-mode ABS.  Öhlins dampers and lighter Marchesini wheels are part of the S package.  Designers spent plenty of time in the wind tunnel optimizing the riding position and bodywork with the goal of a superbike easier to ride fast.

Jason is a principal at Northwest European, a specialty dealer of mostly the four-wheeled variety, but has prepared this Panigale S beautifully.  Their full description is available – here – , but following are their comments about this Tricolore –

This particular example is a spectacular original 1199 Panigale S sold new with factory original Tricolore livery. Having covered a mere 1,457 miles since new, the owner, an avid motorcycle enthusiast, has maintained and serviced this Ducati with the utmost care. As many motorsports enthusiasts will do, the owner selected several specially developed upgrades for this bike, all of which can be easily removed and returned to the original state should the new owner wish to do so – Racing ECU upgrade, exhaust, ASV levers, and a multitude of carbon fiber bits are among the highlights.



As one should expect with this example, the condition of this Ducati is nearly like new. Every aspect of the bike from the colorful bodywork, carbon fiber details, and refined mechanical features are polished, preserved, and properly maintained to factory specifications. The still original tires show minimal use while the brakes, disc surfaces, and drive chain are all in excellent condition.

This Ducati is accompanied by a factory owner’s manual, an un-assembled Tamiya scale model kit of this bike still in the box, a spare seat, spare body pieces, and other original parts that were removed from the bike and upgraded per the original owner’s preference.

Northwest European asks $19,500 for this Panigale S Tricolore, and Jason can be reached at (206) 355-7727 or via email at jason@nweuro.com

As much as a motorbike is a zillion details flying in formation, Ducati appears to have looked at each one carefully, but never lost sight of the goal of lightness and maneuverability.  With a dry weight of 362 lbs., that success was quick and easy to see.  Riding reviews said that the harder to measure combination of a slightly longer swingarm, rotating the engine back a few degrees, centralized mass, and moving the rider a hair forward made for a quick and forgiving superbike.   Contact Jason at (206) 355-7727 for more information on this 2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale S Tricolore.
