Ducati Panigale R Final Edition – On the site of an English dealer appeared specifications and price of Ducati Panigale R Final Edition. The bike “close” the career of the Italian twin-cylinder destined to be replaced by a V four-cylinder model. From the few published information (and then removed), it seems that the Ducati Panigale R Final Edition will be a real Thoroughbred for collectors.
Ducati Panigale R Final Edition, we will see it at Laguna Seca GP
Sometimes even the best-kept secrets are the opportunity to reveal itself. Just one word too many, or in this case a publishing error, and what was to remain unpublished begins to take shape. This is the case of Ducati Panigale R Final Edition, a bike that has been brought forward by Ducati itself with a classic teaser video “I can’t wait”. It will be unveiled during the next round of SBK at Laguna Seca on July 7.
It appears that an English dealer, by mistake, posted on his site some technical data of Ducati Panigale R Final Edition, immediately relayed by English colleagues of Visordown. Ducati Panigale R Final Edition will be a “middle way” between the “normal” R and refined Superleggera. 210 HP maximum power, well 5 HP more than the base and 5 less than the top Superleggera and a maximum torque of 104.7 Nm at 9,000 rpm. A result that could be the result of a “depletion” of the Superleggera engine. The aluminum replacing cylinder bores and other details with the more traditional steel. More or less unchanged, however, weight data which will come to 168 kg (dry) and 190 kg with gasoline.
£34,000 is the price
The dealer also revealed the price, £ 34,000. Even it suggested dates of first delivery, early September. But not the number of models. However, Ducati could create a “waiting list” and produce sufficient momentum to meet the demand. At the moment we do not know more, we just have to wait for the next GP at Laguna Seca and then the wait will move to the new 4-cylinder SBK derived from MotoGP. It will be the star of the 2018 Motorcycle shows.
