Ducati 1299 Panigale R : Making Way For V4 Era
Aug 04, 2017

Ducati Motor Holding CEO Claudio Domenicalli, along with factory Ducati WorldSBK pilots Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri, unveiled the Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition, a superbike that was teased back in June.

The 1299 Panigale R Final Edition arrives with the latest in Ducati electronics that features the Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU): ABS Cornering, Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC EVO), Ducati Traction Control EVO (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 personalized as desired.

During Laguna Seca World Superbike, Davies and Melandri will play tribute to the 1299 R Final Edition by piloting bikes in the same special livery during both USA SBK races.
