The four-cylinder Ducati Panigale V4, the Final Edition should be a unique version machine that Ducati would make for whatever length of time that there was interest for it.
It is sad to see the Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition go… more then likely, it is the plain last v-twin superbike from Ducati Motor Holding.
This is on the grounds that the V4 motor self discipline Ducati’s superbikes for years to come, and it isn’t absurd to imagine that an electric or crossover drive machine could supplant the Panigale V4 in 10 years’ time.
This makes the Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition significantly more uncommon… and collectable. Obviously, what makes it uncommon to us is the way that the FE is fundamentally a large portion of a Superleggera – the engine half.
That day has come however, with Ducati saying that just 1,299 units of the cruiser will be created, with generation presently reaching an end.
All things considered, the 1,285cc v-twin engine includes a lighter crankshaft with a bigger wrench stick and tungsten adjusting cushions, while the con-poles and admission/exhausts valves are produced using titanium. As on observed on the Panigale R superbike motor, the two 116mm cylinders have only two cylinder rings, inside steel chamber liners.
It also comes with superlight titanium exhaust from Akrapovic, which takes its style from the WorldSBK that Ducati Corse utilizes on the Panigale R. This lifts capacity to a noteworthy 206hp (154 kW), while just tipping the scales at 357 lbs (168kg) when dry.
Priced at $40,000 MSRP.
