Ducati 1299 Panigale Overview
Ducati has unveiled the Panigale 1299 R Final Edition, which also brings an end to the era of the twin-cylinder Ducati Superbike legacy. The Panigale series is finally coming to an end and Ducati is waving it off with honour by giving the Panigale series its final and best version, the 1299 R Final Edition. This Final Edition comes with a beautiful paint job of the Italian flag on its body. This Panigale combines elements of the 1299 Panigale, Panigale R and 1299 Superleggera.
Ducati 1299 Panigale Engine & Transmission
This version of Panigale gets the same engine as the Panigale 1299 Superleggera, so the figures remain pretty much similar, that is, an astounding 209 hp of power at 11,000 rpm and 104.8 lb-ft at 9000 rpm through a Superquadro L-twin cylinder, 4-valve per cylinder, Desmodromic, liquid-cooled engine mated to a 6-speed Ducati Quick Shift (up/down) gearbox. You get all this for a staggering price of Rs. 59.18 Lakh (Ex-showroom price, Delhi).
Ducati 1299 Panigale Breaking and Safety
Since it’s the Final Edition, Ducati has filled it with every feature that they could have given. A load of electronics, such as ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), traction control, engine brake control, wheelie control, cornering ABS and the list goes on. The instrument cluster is a coloured TFT display. The parts include Ohlins suspension at both ends, Brembo brakes, Pirelli Diablo SuperCorsa SP tyres and aggressive LED headlamps.
Ducati 1299 Panigale Mileage
The Ducati 1299 Panigale can deliver around 8-9 kmpl.
Ducati 1299 Panigale Performance and Handling
The performance has to be at its peak as it’s the final version of the V-twin series. The frame is the lightweight aluminium version from the Panigale R (the 1199-engined WSB homologation special) instead of the carbon frame like on the Superleggera. Therefore, it may not be as light as the Superleggera but does not compromise on performance at any cost. Of course one just can’t miss the top-notch Brembo M50 monobloccallipers, three-spoke forged alloy wheels and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres that give immense grip and stopping power. You will be blown away the very moment you fire this Panigale, especially with race exhaust, which can make the hair on your neck stand. This V-Twin offered by Ducati is one of the world’s most powerful twin-cylinder on a motorcycle, which will soon be translated into a V4.
