Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition. Insanely Beautiful

Ducati unveiled the Panigale R in its final shape. A collector’s item

With a V4 superbike under development and expected to be revealed soon, it’s about time to say good-bye to the Panigale, as we know it. Ducati does it in style, with this gorgeous final edition. 

Ducati unveiled the Panigale R final edition as a “tribute to the twin cylinder engine”. “Ducati celebrates the twin cylinder engine that marked the history of the Superbike World Championship. From Marco Lucchinelli’s first victory with the 851 in 1988 at the first race in the history of the World Superbike Championship, to 2017 with the victories of Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri on the Panigale R.”
