Ducati keeps producing one hot bike after another; just releasing information on the all-new Ducati 1199 Panigale. The 1199 Panigale will be made public on November 10 at EICMA, the 69th Milan motorcycle show will be held from November 10 to 13, 2011.

The Ducati 1199 Panigale is not only lighter than the 1198 but also packs a bigger punch. The superbike is powered by the Superquadro twin-cylinder engine that produces 195 horsepower, 20 more than the standard 1198. The 1199 weighs in at 361 pounds, 22 pounds lighter than the 1198. The thing should be a hoot to rip around on some twisty roads.

That is a far more beautiful Duck than the little 250 I used to ride back in the 60s. Another bike I really like is the Honda 929. They don't make it anymore and they had some issues with it but it is a very nice handling bike and comfortable to ride as well!
