    Default Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition Unveiled

    Ducati has unveiled the new 1299 Panigale R Final Edition - a tribute to the legendary twin-cylinder engine, the most victorious in SBK World Championship history.

    An exceptional, exclusive bike, born out of respect and admiration for the engine that has made Ducati history and written the World Superbike Championship record books. The new 1299 Panigale R Final Edition is more than just a bike with a dedicated colour scheme or a limited edition.With a tricolour livery, as eye-catching as it is evocative, it offers a fitting tribute to Ducati's iconic twin-cylinder power unit, which reaches its peak on this latest bike.

    For its world preview, Ducati has chosen round eight of the World Superbike Championship, taking place this weekend at Laguna Seca (California-US), where Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati Motor Holding, unveiled the new 1299 Panigale R Final Edition together with Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri (the two official Racing–Ducati riders and stars of the awesome presentation video).

    This latest built-in-Bologna gem offers unparalleled technology, performance, and design. A Euro 4 compliant road bike, each 1299 Panigale R Final Edition is individually numbered. An offshoot of the 1299 Superleggera engine, the Final Edition Superquadro packs a 209 hp* punch at 11,000 rpm and a torque of 14.5 kgm at 9,000 rpm. It features a lighter crankshaft with a larger crank pin and tungsten balancing pads, while the con-rods, like the intake-exhaust valves, are made of titanium. As on Superbike engines, the two 116 mm diameter, Pistons have just two segments and slide on steel cylinder liners.

    Developed by Ducati Corse, the ultra-compact monocoque structure incorporates the airbox and plays a pivotal role in containing the dry weight of the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition to just 179 kg**.

    The chassis set-up on this latest Ducati Supersport is the same as that on the Panigale R, characterized by Öhlins mechanical suspension and a 24° rake.

    Equally sophisticated and light is the complete all-titanium Akrapovič exhaust with high dual silencer (Euro 4 compliant), just like the one on the Panigale R that competes in the World Superbike championship.

    The electronics package features the Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and is equipped with ABS Cornering, Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC EVO), Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC EVO) and Engine Brake Control (EBC). These systems have default settings linked to the selected Riding Mode (Race, Sport, and Wet) but can be personalized as desired.

    Top-drawer tech content and the all-new tricolor livery ensure the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition is set to gain cult status among the vast community of Ducati twin-cylinder aficionados.

    Claudio Domenicali during the presentation stated, "I'm incredibly proud to present this latest version of our Panigale. Maybe no other motorcycle manufacturer has bound its name so tightly to an engine as Ducati has to its sports twin-cylinder. Today, we're here to celebrate its history, just as we stand on the cusp of a new era in which our desmodromic system will be used on a new generation of V4 engines derived from extensive experience in MotoGP, a championship in which our engine has demonstrated outstanding performance. But that's the future. Today, we want to pay homage to a twin-cylinder engine that - thanks to incredible torque and compactness - has seen Ducati win races in every SBK championship it has ever participated in. In short, it's the engine that has written World Superbike history. From Marco Lucchinelli's first victory on 3rd April 1988 with the 851 at Donington Park (in the first-ever world championship for modified production models) to the stunning 2017 wins by Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri on the Panigale R, Ducati has won no less than 333 races and taken 17 Constructors' titles and 14 Rider's titles”.

    The 1299 Panigale R Final Edition will play a pivotal role throughout the weekend at Laguna Seca. On Saturday morning, immediately after the Superpole, the bike will go on display both at Ducati Island (the space Ducati traditionally sets aside for its fans during American events) and inside the Paddock Show.

    And, to complete this historic moment, the Racing–Ducati team has decided to celebrate the arrival of the new 1299 Panigale R Final Edition by decking out its two official race bikes in the same special livery, to be used by Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri on Saturday in Race 1 and on Sunday in Race 2.

    1299 PANIGALE R FINAL EDITION - When the end tells the whole story

    Tribute to the twin cylinder engine

    With the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition, Ducati celebrates the twin cylinder engine that marked the history of the Superbike World Championship. From Marco Lucchinelli’s first victory with the 851 in 1988 at the first race in the history of the World Superbike Championship to 2017 with the victories of Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri on the Panigale R, the twin cylinder from Borgo Panigale has always been a top performer of the Superbike Championship

    A collector’s item

    The 1299 Panigale R Final Edition is produced in a numbered, unlimited series, and represents the perfect mix between high performance engine and racing chassis. The new livery, red rims and titanium exhaust make the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition a unique, collectible bike.

    The most powerful twin cylinder

    The Final Edition Superquadro engine is derived from the 1299 Superleggera engine with 209 hp at 11,000 rpm and 14.5 kgm at 9,000 rpm. Thanks to the very high power and dry weight of just 168 kg, the Final Edition achieves a power to weight ratio of 1.24 hp/kg.

    Racing electronics

    Making the most of competition experience, a number of advanced electronic control systems have been developed that optimise engine response and chassis dynamics in every situation.
