Buyers of a Ducati Panigale registered between now and April 30th 2013 and insured through Ducati Insurance will get a free Bike Trac system at no extra cost which in turn will entitle you to a 25% discount on Ducati insurance.
The 1199 Panigale has set the benchmark for Superbikes and boasts the most powerful twin-cylinder production engine on the market. An innovative monocoque chassis and the superquadro engine combine to deliver an astonishing 195hp and 164kg, producing the highest motorcycle power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios in the world.
The addition of class leading technology including ABS, Traction Control, Electronic Suspension (‘S’ Version), Ducati Quick Shift, Engine Brake Control and ride- by- wire throttle produces an unrivalled Sportsbike package.
Desirable Superbikes such as the Panigale require top quality security protection and therefore Ducati UK has chosen the Bike Trac system for this unique offer.
Already endorsed by Ducati UK, Bike Trac is one of the most successful motorcycle-specific tracking devices on the market, with an unprecedented recovery record in the UK. The Thatcham approved device includes features such as bike down alerts (alerts others if involved in an accident), low battery alerts, downloadable road journeys and a live web portal. Alerts are also sent via email and text if a bike is moved outside of a geographical area (geo-fence).
Not only does the Bike Trac system increase the possibility of a Panigale being recovered if stolen ( 30 out of 33 motorcycles stolen were recovered in 2012) it is also eligible for a 25% discount from Ducati Insurance. Ducati Insurance covers all models, accessories, modifications and apparel and in the event of an accident will arrange recovery to a Ducati approved repairer.
Ducati UK Managing Director, Tim Maccabee commented,"To most Ducati owners their bike is much more than just a bike, it's something very personal. By introducing Bike Trac for the Panigale for a limited period, we believe we are giving our customers the best chance to keep theirs safe, while fighting bike crime in the process. The success rate and proven track record of the Bike Trac system is hugely impressive and in our opinion truly befits a motorcycle as special as the Panigale."
Bike Trac's Bill Taylor, added, "Ducati was one of the first manufacturers to endorse Bike Trac, so it's great to agree this association on a model as special as this. When the Panigale was first launched, we worked closely with Ducati UK to test our system and just a few months later the first Panigale was stolen and subsequently successfully recovered with one of our units fitted. On top of this news, to celebrate the re-launch of Ducati's official insurance scheme, we're also delighted to agree a 25% discount for Ducati owners who have Bike Trac fitted and insure through the scheme."
The offer is available on all brand new Ducati 1199 Panigale's ordered at authorised Ducati UK dealers between now April 30th and includes fitment of the Bike Trac unit and a 12 month subscription.
