The 1199 Panigale is one of the most wanted supersport models in its class. The motorcycle is especially appreciated for its top notch driving dynamics, the strong engine and its state of the art technologies. Though, Ducati thought that its bike is still not as capable as they want, so they went on and upgraded it.

As a result, the 2013 Ducati 1199 Panigale R is 10 kg lighter and 25 hp stronger than the previous generation. Power comes from the strong Superquadro which is the most powerful twin-cylinder engine on the planet. The engine’s power has been increased up to 195 HP@10,750 rpm, while torque has been increased as well, to 13.5 kgm@9,000 rpm. Moreover the 1199 Panigale R is also offered with the Riding Mode options, which let you modulate power delivery based on riding style and road conditions.
