If you’ve been contemplating a new Ducati 959 Panigale, then the Italian firms hopes to convince you with a deal on the TriOptions Cup Kit. The one-make series has been running for 8 years now, supporting the British Superbike Series. Which is longer than any other one-make support class. And 2017 has seen more than 50 riders register for another season of racing, showing it remains popular.
So if you’re in the market for a new Ducati, then you might want turn it into a TriOptions race replica. Normally that would cost you £3789 for the parts. But the Ducati 959 Panigale TriOptions Cup Kit discount offer currently running will get you everything for £1500. As long as you buy a new bike at the same time.
The Ducati Performance TriOptions Cup Accessory Kit:
So what parts do you get for your £1500. Or £3789 if you don’t happen to buy a new Panigale before the deal ends on 30th June 2017?
The kit includes:
- Akrapovic racing exhaust silencers
- Brake and clutch fluid reservoirs
- Ducati Corse oversized racing screen
- Brake lever protectors
- Lower fairings
Which means you’re sorted for track days, a spot of racing, or just getting more out of your Panigale. The cost of the kit also includes free fitting as part of the offer, so you don’t need to be messing around with your own clutch fluid.
The Ducati 959 Panigale launched in 2016. It’s not a million miles away from the previous 899, but it now meets the Euro4 laws on noise and emissions. And in addition to the larger engine, you also get some tweaks to the chassis and looks. The only downside has been to increase the weight a little, by 7kg. But that’s balanced by 157bhp, 79.2ftlb of torque, and the addition of a slipper clutch. Plus traction control, racing ABS, selectable riding models, a quickshifter and fully adjustable suspension.
Buying a new Ducati 959 Panigale will cost you from £13,795. The Italian firm increased bike prices by around 5% across their range at the start of 2017, due to the fall in the value of the pound. But if you were planning on the TriOptions extra, the discount offer does mean you still save on the price from last year. And it makes the bike look even nicer by ditching the traditional shotgun exhausts.
