Last batch of the Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Editions up for grabs
Back in 2017, Ducati unveiled a special offering, the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition. As the name suggests, this is one of the most extreme versions of the Panigale ever made. The Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition continues the gorgeous design that has been seen on the regular model. It does get a special paint job. Ducati has made only 1,299 such bikes and every bike is delivered with a certificate of authenticity that makes this exclusive superbike, a milestone among the Bologna-built twin-cylinders, even more valuable. Ducati has now confirmed that the last batch of this exquisite offering is being sent to its dealerships all over the world. Interestingly, Ducati India too has the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition on sale at Rs 59.18 lakh, ex-showroom. But on a made to order basis.
Each 1299 Panigale R Final Edition is a Euro 4 compliant road bike. An offshoot of the 1299 Superleggera engine, the Final Edition Superquadro produced 209PS at 11,000 rpm and generates a torque of 142Nm at 9,000 rpm. It features a lighter crankshaft with a larger crank pin and tungsten balancing pads, while the con-rods, like the intake-exhaust valves, are made of titanium. Further, Ducati mentions that as on superbike engines, the two 116 mm diameter pistons have just two segments and slide on steel cylinder liners. Co-developed with Ducati Corse, the compact monocoque structure incorporates the airbox and plays a pivotal role in limiting the dry weight of the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition to just 179 kg. The chassis set-up features mechanical Ohlins suspension and a headstock rake of 24°. This limited edition offering also comes with an all-titanium lightweight Akrapovi? exhaust with high dual silencer that is Euro 4 compliant, exactly like the one on the Panigale R that has just ended its participation in the World Superbike championship.

The electronics package features the Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and is equipped with ABS Cornering, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO and Engine Brake Control (EBC). These systems have default settings linked to the selected Riding Mode (Race, Sport and Wet) but can be personalised as desired. While the Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition is available in India, the company has not sold a single unit. Good enough reason to get one? If you do, make sure you let us know as well.
