Ducati 1199 Panigale R

The best way to describe the Ducati 1199 Panigale R is that it is a sweet and powerful ride that is in line with the best racing machines out there. Ducati felt that their bikes needed something more that is why they gave this new model with some of the best upgrades available making it one of the most anticipated and widely in demand in the world of high end motorbikes today.

What makes the Ducati 1199 Panigale R something to check out? Starting off with its engine, the 1199 Panigale R is equipped with Superquadro, liquid-cooled, L-twin cylinder engine which is the most powerful in the world. It is also used as the bike’s main element where the frame is designed to flow with it for weight balance, sturdy framework and a robust look. With connection rods made from titanium and lightweight crankshaft flywheel attached to the engine, it became easier to handle allowing it to reach 12,000rpm. This is 500rpm more than the other models.

It is also noticeable that the Ducati 1199 Panigale R has more traction when turning in corners. This is due to the swingarm pivot that can be easily adjusted to suit your riding needs. Thanks to the Panigale R’s easy-to-use system, you can adjust the swingarm accordingly because each of the points are marked and located properly. This won’t be too difficult for you to handle when going for a test drive on the Panigale R.

In order to make the Panigale R lighter, carbon fiber materials were used in its rear guard, rear hugger, inner panels of the bike’s top fairing, swingarm protector, clutch cover, as well as around its ignition switch. To complete its racing look, a racing fabric is used for its seat and with its Marchesini wheels the Panigale R is truly a beauty to behold. Add the upgraded GPS DDA plus the circuit-map link and you will be well on your way to exploring new roads in the future.

You can get the Ducati 1199 Panigale R in red with white trimmings. The fuel tank is painted with a combination of brushed aluminium and red for a sportier look.  This model is currently priced at $29, 995 which can be a bit steep for some but for true Ducati riders it is a worthy investment especially when they see how powerful yet lightweight the new Panigale R is.
