Ducati 1299 Panigale Final Edition 2017
In the 1299 Panigale Ducati has produced a sublime road-going twin cylinder superbike. It has monster power and torque but it’s also more user-friendly thanks to extremely clever electronic suspension and rider aids.
The Final Edition’s V-twin motor doesn’t have sandcast crankcases or aluminium cylinder liners like the Superleggera but the rest is the same. From its high compression superbike-spec pistons to its high-lift cams, lightweight flywheel and crankshaft with tungsten counterweights, titanium con rods, intake and exhaust valves, ported cylinder head, lithium battery and WSB-style Euro 4-friendly underseat exhausts.
The adjustable aluminium monocoque frame, swingarm, forged ali wheels, Öhlins suspension and brakes are borrowed from the 1198cc homologation-special Panigale R.
