Odessa, Fla. (January 20, 2014) – Euro Cycles of Tampa Bay, the region’s premier destination for high performance motorcycle sales, parts and service, will unveil Ducati’s latest superbike, the 899 Panigale, at a party that will also celebrate the dealership’s recent remodeling and its third anniversary under the management of owner Aaron Sprague. The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place on Saturday, February 1st from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at 8509 Gunn Highway in Odessa.
“Tampa Bay motorcycle enthusiasts have fallen head over heels in love with the Panigale,” said Sprague. “When we debuted the 1199 Panigale here two years ago, we pre-sold more than 30 bikes before the first one even arrived at our dealership. This new generation of Ducati street bikes has generated unprecedented interest. The 899 Panigale offers a “Supermid” version that provides the thrill of the flagship model with the refined character of an everyday street bike.”
Sprague will host over 300 guests at the Ducati 899 Panigale premiere and grand remodeling celebration. The event will feature great food and beverages, a DJ spinning high energy music, chances to win free motorcycle gear, and of course, the unveiling of the new bike.
The Ducati 899 Panigale’s brand new Superquadro engine features a revised bore and stroke for a broad power delivery, producing 148hp (109kW) with a torque of 73lb-ft (10.1kgm). The super-smooth power unit continues to be a fully stressed member of the innovative Panigale monocoque construction, achieving both an outstanding power-to-weight ratio and ride-enhancing agility with a dry weight of 169kg (372.5lb). An 1199 silhouette underlines the family DNA, while the Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) and the fully integrated Riding Mode technology of Ride-by-Wire, triple stage ABS, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and Engine Brake Control (EBC) continues the benchmark ingenuity introduced with the award-winning Panigale.
Ducati’s constant pursuit of perfection now offers all-round performance for connoisseurs with an authentic and stylish way to enter the world of high performance. The 899 Panigale is available in traditional Ducati red with black wheels or a stunning arctic white with red wheels with suggested retail prices beginning at around $15,000.
