Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition

Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition


V2 is dead. Long live V2! It’s true. The Italian motorcycle manufacturer is ending the Panigale superbike series. In fact, they’re ending production of V-twin bikes altogether and are instead focusing on V4 models. The new 4-cylinder machines haven’t been unveiled yet, so anyone who’s lamenting the death of Ducati’s twin cylinder legacy can pick up this Final Edition as sort of a “greatest hits” from the Panigale line.

From the monocoque (structural skin) chassis to the Superquadro engine; from the oversquare bore/stroke ratio to the Desmodromic valves, everything about this last hurrah is built for speed — with 209 horsepower at 11k rpm and a max torque of 104.7 lb-ft at 9k rpm. Which all translates to: Fast. Everything they’ve learned about building superbikes is here, complete with Italian flag/Ducati themed paint job and a numbered (though not limited) top yoke.
