Ducati 1299 Superleggera – It is not a Superbike and not a MotoGP, what is the most beautiful motorcycle in 2017? For me, it’s the new Ducati 1299 Superleggera. It is the standard production motorcycle that most resembles these two models and has all the best technology for the Italian brand. How much does it cost? $80,000. A value that may sound excessive. But it’s not essential when you consider that the new Ducati 1299 Superleggera is the first standard road bike with the frame, swing-arm, and carbon fiber wheels.
Ducati 1299 Superleggera: The Best
Ducati is not afraid to state that the Ducati 1299 Superleggera is the highest engineering, technological and performance expression ever produced worldwide. Underneath the carbon fiber dress is the most potent version of the Superquadro L-twin. The 1299 Superleggera has 215 hp at 11,000 rpm and 14.9 kgm at 9,000 rpm. The engine is the two most powerful cylinders ever produced.
The 1299 Superleggera has the traction control’s Slide Control function, which you will use to go stronger when cornering out. But even it has the Power Launch. It is helpful for stop starts. ABS Cornering is also essential for its exceptional performance. But the Ducati 1299 Superleggera is unique even in the number of models produced. They will be only 500 and have all been sold already. If you are lucky enough to receive it at home, you will also have the track kit that includes the complete Akrapovic Titanium racing exhaust, the Plexiglass racing, the license plate removal kit, the side stand removal kit, the mirror replacement caps machined from the solid, the front and rear stand and the motorbike cover.
The ultimate expression
The 1299 Superleggera is the ultimate expression of Ducati‘s dual-cylinder sports bike and may not be overtaken. Also because Ducati will go towards the 4-cylinder V-cylinder for the next Superbike. It has the same fractionation that has always been used in MotoGP.
