A lot has been written recently about the latest Ducati Open link in a new window super motorcycle, the 1199 Panigale. From all reports and reviews, it's by far the fastest, most powerful and sleekest sports motorcycle ever to come out of the Italian manufacturer.

Ducati has always been synonymous with fast, sexy and powerful motorcycles. Since the factories started churning out the 851 back in 1988, the Ducati superbike has been a dream motorcycle, winning championships around the world.

Over time, the motorcycle evolution has been noticeable. Not only in terms of engine power, but also in styling. Below are photos of each evolution of the bike, starting with the 851 and ending with the 1199 Panigale. (Finding photos of each model, with a white background, taken from the same angle has proven to be very difficult).

The first image you'll see is an animated gif file I made, morphing each model from start to finish, showing you what the superbikes look like over time, and how they changed. This is followed by a detailed look for each model. The technical data is an amalgamation of data found on different sites and may not be 100% accurate since each model had its own evolution.

NOTE
: The animated GIF, morphing Ducati's motorcycles over time is ENORMOUS, so let it load. It weights 5 Mbytes, so if you are on a slow connection, get some coffee.
