The Ducati 1199 Panigale R is a superbike that holds no reservations and is just about as exclusive as they come. It’s covered with carbon fiber body panels, filled with power and looks just the way you’d expect an extreme Ducati to look. Honestly, it may be too good to be true, but it’s not and we currently have one for sale on duPontREGISTRY.com.
Ducati introduced the 1199 Panigale R back in 2012 as a World Superbike homologation model. It then went on to be produced from 2013 to 2016, becoming wildly popular during its production run. This popularity came from the bike’s lightweight build and powerful 1,198cc Superquadro engine (195 horsepower and 97.3 lb-ft of torque). With both of the aforementioned aspects regarding weight and power, the Panigale R can reach a limited top speed of 186 mph.
But, this bike isn’t just meant for speed. Ducati equipped the Panigale R with multiple Riding Modes that allow it to excel no matter the situation. The modes include “Road,” “Wet” and “Race,” with each of them being quite self-explanatory. The most interesting, though, has to be the “Wet” mode that gives the Panigale R better traction and handling when traveling across a wet surface.
The 1199 Panigale R may have been Ducati’s flagship model and ultimate bike, it’s still one of the most exciting and capable bikes on the road and track today. If you’re looking into getting onto one, click the link below to see how you can get the Panigale R pictured in this article.
