Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition

Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition

Posted in MOTORCYCLES, RIDES By

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.
