Ducati's finest V-Twin

in #bikes3 years ago (edited)

The following is from Ducati's own website on this very exclusive model!

Ducati takes the world of Supersport road bikes to a completely new level by presenting the 1299 Superleggera, the first standard street bike with carbon fibre frame, swinging arm, subframe and wheels. The 1299 Superleggera is the greatest expression of engineering, technology and performance ever put into mass production by a motorcycle manufacturer.

Only 500 have been built , all pre-sold.

The final Hurrah of the Legendary V-Twin , before the V-Four takes over as the Go to Machine!

More from the Ducati Website.

The fairing, also made of carbon fibre, is just the tip of the iceberg of a unique project that only a brand like Ducati with racing in its DNA could accomplish.

In fact, under the fairing hides the most powerful version of the Superquadro. With its 215 horsepower*,

the Desmodromic EURO 4 engine on the 1299 Superleggera is the most powerful twin-cylinder ever produced.

On the road weight of 167Kg.

Even if I could afford one , it is quite literally Unobtanium!

Well, my SUV doesn't lean into turns or accelerate like crazy...but then, I'm still here to say that - I wouldn't be if I slid into one of those turns on the V-Twin :)
