Ducati 1199 Panigale is both amazing bike for track and very attractive machine, and arguably the best sports model ever built. Therefore, it is easy to think that there are no many ways to improve, but the French workshop Ortolani has managed to find a way to completely transform this bike into a unique work of art. “1199 Polished Panigale” is an idea that is materialized thanks to the concept illustration of automotive designer under the pseudonym Holographic Hammer, which Ortolani team has little adapted to reality.
As first, original Panigale was completely stripped down to make way for hand-shaped polished aluminum parts.
Believe it or not, the French managed so well to pack everything which was under the old body, so at the moment we could believe that this machine was born naked.
Under the a small, brilliant fuel are situated the “airbox”, the fuel pumpas well as most electronics, while the rest is tucked away in an elegant tail, which comes with integrated stop light and brown NMB Designs seat.
Ortolani has created the back part, with the aim that people don’t forget the racing pedigree of the Italian machine, with custom made cooler and Akrapovic exhaust system. Aggregate has also undergone some changes, with a set of larger pistons to increase power to 195 to 210 hp.
And braking system has been improved, by addition of 330-millimeter carbon-ceramic disc, racing specifications, with OZ rims and Michelin tires.
There are also specially designed far, knobs, and many other small elements which make “1199 Polished Panigale” one of the best Ducati transformation that we have ever seen.
