2018 Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition REVIEW BY TOTAL MOTORCYCLE


With the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition, Ducati pays tribute to the twin-cylinder engine that has made Superbike World Championship history. From Marco Lucchinelli’s first victory on 3rd April 1988 with the 851 (in the first-ever world championship for modified production models) to the stunning 2017 wins by Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri on the Panigale R, the Bologna-built twin-cylinder has long been a winner in SBK. Desmoquattro, Testastretta, Superquadro: over three decades, the Ducati-designed twin-cylinder 4-valve engine with Desmodromic timing has gone from strength to strength, powering bikes that have made Supersport history. Motorcycles that have won no less than 330 World Superbike Championship races. From the 851 to the Panigale R – and the 888, 916, 996, 998, 999, 1098, 1198 and 1199 in between them – the Bologna-built twin has always been as successful on the track as it has on the supersport market. Now, the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition pays homage to the great Ducati superbike tradition by combining best-ever twin-cylinder engine performance with a racing-derived chassis set-up.

Available as a numbered (but not limited) series, the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition is a Euro 4 compliant road bike with a perfect mix of ultra-high engine performance and spot-on racing suspension. An offshoot of the 1299 Superleggera engine, the “Final Edition” Superquadro packs a 209 hp* punch at 11,000 rpm and a torque of 14.5 kgm at 9,000 rpm The chassis set-up, instead, is the same as that on the Panigale R, with Öhlins mechanical suspension and a 24° rake.

As for electronics, the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition features the Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and ABS Cornering, Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC EVO), Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC EVO) and Engine Brake Control (EBC). All these systems are set according to the selected Riding Mode (Race, Sport and Wet) and can be personalised as desired.

In addition to top-drawer tech content, the all-new red, white and green colour scheme with red wheels makes the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition a unique collector’s item.

Yep, +1 on that except maybe the single part, a matched pair of these would be GREAT anniversary gifts for Rubia and me.

I've always said I couldn't vote Awesome for a bike I wouldn't actually ride myself, so I'm tempted to vote Cool. But I'll be honest, now that I've moved away from cruisers I could see a situation where I'd own one of these. Track days obviously, trailer queen probably, but I could still see it. So yeah, Awesome.

Reminds me of a long ago story from my distance past...

Back in 1992-1995, I owned an Internet Cafe called "Storm Multimedia" in Markham, Ontario. Well, we were right next to two high schools so I used to get a lot of students in. One day, I had one such said student who wanted to buy a pop... I said .75 cents, but they didn't have it, promised to pay me tomorrow. Well, I said sure, I quickly wrote up a contract and asked them to sign it, in exchange they would get a pop today and I would rip up the contract when they paid me.

Said contract (they signed it) said:

I trade my soul in exchange for 1 pop.

Signed: _____________


2 days later they came back with the 75 cents. haha.

Said contract was destroyed.

Ducati says "SIMPLY STUNNING", yup, I'll buy that. So it gets an Awesome.

I really love the white/green/red color combination on a Ducati Sportbike, yes, it isn't for everyone, but it looks so clean and fresh while paying homage to the Italian history. The red rims are just the icing on the cake.

Now the price... well, I'm sure it isn't "worth it" really, but something this desirable always costs something or else it would be common right?
