2017 Ducati 959 Panigale Price in USA
Price-wise the 2017 Ducati 959 Panigale has a nice tag on it. We say that because the 1299 Panigale, displacement-wise, is not a litre bike. The 959 Panigale can be accommodated as a litre-bike as it is just a few CCs shy of being a litre bike. Now that we have mentioned the displacement though, it begets talk of 959 Panigale’s other specifications.
