2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale S Receives FIM Superstock Homologation

Share this Article

It was only a matter of time but finally the news is official: the 2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale S has been added to the list of homologated motorcycles for the Superstock 1000 Cup

The Panigale was noticeably absent from the initial homologation list the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM) released a couple of weeks ago. Now, with a month until the 2012 Superstock 1000 Cup starts at Italy’s Imola circuit, the 1199 has been cleared to complete.

The delay was merely a formality however, and teams such as Effenbert-Liberty Racing have already begun testing the Ducati 1199 Panigale S in racing trim.

The 1199 won’t be competing in the WSBK class until 2013 so for the time being, we’ll have to keep an eye on how it fares in the Superstock series where six Panigales are expected to line up on the grid at Imola on April 1.

Here’s the FIM’s updated homologation list as of March 1:
