Ducati 1199s Panigale (2012) Motorcycle Hire

Ducati 1199s Panigale (2012) 2012 Panigale front

Ducati 1199s Panigale (2012) 2012 Panigale side

The Ducati 1199 Panigale delivers record performance, breathtaking design and technical innovation, it also breaks with our Superbike tradition by adding a name to its 1199cc engine capacity, making a significant and warm association to its historic roots in the Borgo Panigale (pronounced "Pan-ee-gah-lee") area of Bologna. In an Italian territory known as "Motor Valley" and where high performance and racing runs through the veins of its passionate people, we decided to underline our pride in being world ambassadors for the "Made in Italy" title by immortalizing our home town in the name of the best sportsbike ever built.

MCN Review

A mould-breaking motorcycle. Apart from the colour and the noise it makes, the Panigale has nothing in common with Ducati superbikes of old. The chassis is ‘frameless’, there’s a new-generation ‘superquadro’ L-twin engine and it comes with the very latest electronic rider aids, which work. Producing a claimed 195bhp and weighing 188kg, wet, it has a fearsome power-to-weight ratio, but is remarkably easy to ride. Gone is the out-going 1198’s excess of almost uncontrollable torque and in is a smooth power curve and a searing top end. Like Ducatis of old its super-stable in fast corners, but now it steers as fast as a Japanese superbike. It’s a very clever motorcycle and very, very good.

Superbike Rental was a pleasure to hire from. Everyone was welcoming and friendly and made you feel relaxed and excited to be hiring and getting on the road as soon as possible with a superbike. In my case, it was the Ducati 1199 Panigale. Awesome bike that I had from Friday afternoon till Monday morning. A great location too, as I was able to leave my van at their premises for the weekend. I would recommend Superbike hire to anyone wanting to hire a bike for whatever reason as the support and help is always there on tap when you need it. And I'll certainly be hiring another one as soon as I get time to do so.

Just had a fantastic experience on a Ducati 1199 Panigale :) Recently hired a van from these guys and on collection I was greeted by some beautiful looking bikes. Well the sun came out so I thought it would be rude not to have 1 for the day. Excellent service again, staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help and yes I will be back for more.

Superbike Rental offer a great service to their customers. I hired the Panigale 1199s back in July and what a great bike for the fantastic and empty roads in Spain and Portugal. This bike may not of had a great review, but when it is on the right roads it is unstoppable! The team at SBR are very helpful. We spoke in depth about the bike and the support they offer. I’m looking forward to my trip next year and using them again. All the best for the remainder of 2015 and prosperous year for 2016

Our rental from SuperBike was seamless from start to finish. It was so easy to book from overseas and we were even able to arrange someone to collect us at the Brentwood train station and take us back at the end of the trip.

Mark and the staff have such a genuine enthusiasm for what they do, which was great to see.

It was my first time on a motorcycle (on the Ducati Panigale 1199 no less!), and Matthew's dream trip to see the TT Races; everyone was so excited for both of us (and maybe a bit nervous for me!).

The Ducati was in excellent condition and even when we had a minor issue, we were able to get it sorted right away with help from the SuperBike crew and Ducati.It was a great experience overall and we would definitely rent from SuperBike again!

Thanks so much. :)

Bike Hired - Ducati 1199s Panigale

I rented the Ducati Panigale 1199S for a 4 day trip to Le Mans at the beginning of September. This was the second time I’ve used Superbike Rental and the friendly service I received upon arrival reminded me why I’d come back.

As with my previous visit the bike was immaculately prepared and the smooth transaction almost made handing over my money a pleasure.

As I live in Dubai this is the perfect solution for me as it saves the cost of ownership and affords me the opportunity to try different machines.

I’ll be back next year for sure.

"Right from when we arrived at Superbike Rentals we were looked after very well. Started with a prank on one of our crew which we Pre organised with Trina, and went off with the expected hilarious result! Then fed coffee, setup on the bikes (BMW HP4 Carbon, Ducati 1199S Panigale, Ducati 848, Honda 1000RR Fireblade, BMW GS1200).

All the bikes were presented as new, with gear packs to suit.

We had a ball touring through Western Europe, Scotland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Wales & England over 2 weeks and nearly 3000 miles!

On return we were fed more coffee, checked the bikes back in and delivered to the local train station to continue our adventure on train & foot.

Big thanks to the team at Superbikes. Very professional operation with a focus on the clients enjoyment of the services they provide.

Highly recommend Superbike Rentals to anyone looking to hire well maintained high quality machinery

Thanks again"

"Arranged pickup of a Panigale S as I wanted to test out the new flagship Ducati and have the freedom to ride it for a weekend wherever I wanted. Fantastic customer service from both Trina and Mark, all of my emails and questions were answered quickly and I couldn't fault the service. As I run a bike business myself I know how hard it is to run it well, no problems here. I would recommend Superbike Rental to customers and friends alike, they do exactly what they say, when they say they will. You can't ask for more than that.  I had a fantastic time on the bike and it performed faultlessly.

Highly recommended, Thanks very much. I'll be using you"

"Thank you very much Trina, this has been the most expensive ride of my entire life - but the Panegali is on my shopping list - for sure / but maybe the baby 799 - when it comes.


Take care & thanks for the trust with your lovely bike."
