Panigale tops GQ U.K.’s “100 best” list

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

“It’s time to upgrade your life,” proclaims the opening line of GQ U.K.’s list of “The 100 best things in the world right now!” Coming in at number one is Ducati’s 899 Panigale. 

Though the blurbs of items included in the list are ripe with hyperbole, GQ isn’t far off in its description of the Ducati. Here’s an excerpt: “Offering the Ducati superbike experience with […] reduced weight, ABS and traction control as standard, and all for less cash [than the 1199 Panigale], this may be the most complete sports bike the Italian marque has ever produced.” 

Other items on GQ’s list: Louis Vuitton’s North South tote, the Cronut (a cross between a croissant and doughnut), Tom Ford grooming accessories, and a custom known as picklebacking (chasing a shot of whiskey with a shot of pickle brine).
