Ducati Superbike 1299 Panigale R Final Edition 2018

Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition - When the end tells the whole story

As the name suggests this is your last opportunity to own a 1299 Panigale. The 1299 Panigale R Final Edition that utilises the engine from the Ducati Superleggera but using steel cylinder liners instead of aluminium, a die cast crankcase (sand cast on the Superleggera) and steel enigine bolts as opposed to titanium. The Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition is a mere 14kg heavier than the Superleggera.

With its own very distinct livery of Red/White/Green - Tricolore, it is quintessentially about as Italian as it gets.

210 horsepower, 105NM of torque and a mere 168kg dry weight, this bike is not for the feint hearted. With a capacity of 1285cc it is designed purely as a road bike as it breaches the maximum capacity of 1200cc for racing.

Although not a limited edition, each bike produced will be individually numbered with a plaque on the top triple clamp ensuring that no one will be left disapointed.

Lightweight Racing Engine

The Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition features an incredible 1198cc Superquadro engine which adopts the most advanced racing-derived features available. A precision-balanced lightweight crankshaft, two-ring Superbike pistons, titanium valves and connecting rods, and extreme camshaft profiles result in a 209.4 hp output with immediate, aggressive power delivery.  This machine benefits from the same generous warranty and long maintenance intervals as the rest of the superbikes in the range.

Monocoque Technology

The Panigale's Monoscocca chassis forms its structural backbone - compact, rigid, lightweight, and multi-functional. Cast in aluminium, it attaches at its rear directly to the heads of the Superquadro engine and contains the steering head and bearings at its front. In addition to performing the function of a traditional frame, the Monoscocca also serves as the airbox and in this way significantly contributes to lowering the overall weight of the motorcycle. Housed inside it are the air filter, throttle bodies and fuel circuit complete with injectors, making it truly unique and a revolutionary advancement to the world of traditional motorcycle construction.

Fully Ride-by-Wire

The opening and closing of throttle butterflies on the Superquadro is controlled by a fully electronic Ride-by-Wire system. The absence of a mechanical connection between the twistgrip and the throttle bodies allows the engine ECU to regulate power delivery by directly adjusting the throttle. Ride-by-Wire makes it possible to have different power and delivery based on the selected Riding Mode, to alter the level of engine back-torque (EBC), and to control any slipping of the rear wheel (DTC).


The crankcases are produced through die casting technology and are designed to incorporate water jackets around the cylinder barrels. The engine uses wet barrels which are inserted into the holes of the engine block's housing during the initial stages of assembly. This design allows the head to be fastened directly onto the crankcase, combining the need for rigidity of the engine's structure with a significant advantage in terms of compactness. Due to their thin structure, the cylinder barrels efficiently transfer heat to the coolant running along their walls. In addition to these barrels, the Superquadro's crankcase stands out for the use of plain main bearings, previously utilised on the Ducati Desmosedici RR engine. These bearings allow the use of large-diameter crankshaft journals, which maximise rigidity and mechanical strength to optimise the internal rotating structure to the extreme power of the Superquadro.

Essential Desmo

To control the large valves with the precise and efficient Desmodromic system, engineers chose a mixed gear and chain drive system. This chain drive accurately transmits the motion between crankshaft and camshaft, and thanks also to an automatic tensioning adjustment, offers excellent reliability with low routine maintenance costs.

Bosch Inertial Platform

The 1299/S Panigale and Panigale R use the Bosch Inertial Platform, which is centered around an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). The IMU constantly monitors the motorcycle's lean angle and fore/aft pitch, interfacing with the ABS, DWC, and on the 1299 Panigale S, the Ohlins Smart EC suspension - ensuring that these systems operate at maximum effectiveness regardless of the motorcycle's position. 

Engine Braking Control (EBC)

The engine braking control (EBC) system works in combination with the slipper clutch to prevent and manage any locking of the rear wheel during aggressive downshifting. The rider can select the level of engine braking felt from one of 3 levels, allowing them to perfectly customise the motorcycle's feeling during deceleration and turn entry.

Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) 9.1 MP

The Bosch 9.1 MP ABS equips the 1299 Panigale/S and Panigale R as standard, and is a latest-generation system that performs combined braking with control rear wheel lift to guarantee the shortest braking distances and greatest stability in any conditions. Further, the system interfaces with the Bosch Intertial Control platform, allowing maximum braking even while the motorcycle is leaned over.

Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS)

The Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) is a race-derived electronic system that manages shifting of the gearbox in both up and down directions. It allows upshifts to be made under full acceleration without using the clutch, which gains precious fractions of a second that would otherwise be wasted in closing the throttle. It also allows clutchless downshifts, as the system performs a perfectly-timed auto-blip when the foot lever is depressed, engaging the gears smoothly and allowing the rider to concentrate only on braking and corner entry.

Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC EVO)

DWC EVO uses information on the 1299's pitch from the Bosch IMU to control front wheel lift and allow maximum acceleration in safety. Using entirely new software, DWC EVO more accurately detects the occurrence and severity of wheelies and intervenes to control them with a high degree of robustness and precision.
