Ducati has prepared a nice surprise for us. Its new project has been kept under an aura of secrecy for a while, but now the first details are starting to emerge.
The Italian company has prepared a very special version of its already special Ducati 1199 Panigale R. The new model is super light and super strong and will be offered in only 500 units. The motorcycle uses materials such as magnesium, carbon fiber and titanium, which help it loose around 40 lbs (18 kg).
It is called the Ducati 1199 Panigale R Superleggera (Italian for ultra-lighweight) and will be available for a group of Ducati fans that were especially selected by the company.
Ducati has also launched a special websitededicated to its new motorcycle that has received the codename “1201”.
For the moment, we don’t have any details about the Sperleggera’s price but you can expect it to be in the $6,000 – $70,000 range.
