Ducati was established in 1926 by Antonnio Ducati and his sons, initially producing electrical components. After WW2 they moved into motorcycles with the Cucciola, essentially a pushbike with a clip-on engine but by the 1960s had become associated with performance bikes selling a range of sporty 250 and 350 singles. In response to the demand for larger capacity bikes chief engineer Fabio Taglioni designed the classic V Twin bevel drive engine first used in the 1971 GT750. This proved to be an immediate success, helped considerably by Paul Smarts win in the 1972 Imola 200 race. This started a long tradition of race-winning V twins that have gone on to dominate World Superbike racing over the years. The 1299 Panigale R Final Edition was created to celebrate Ducati's most powerful twin-cylinder ever produced in a numbered limited series of just 1299 bikes and represents the perfect mix between the high-performance engine and racing chassis. The tricolour livery, red Marchesini forged wheels, Ohlins suspension and Akrapovic titanium exhaust make the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition a unique, collectible bike.
This excellent example has been stored in a heated garage as part of a large private collection and is only showing 9 miles on the clock. It comes with all the Limited Edition features in place and includes the owners and service manuals, spare screen, mirror blanking plates and the DDA Ducati Data Analyser adaptor. Also included are front and rear Pierobon alloy paddock stands that cost over £1000. A beautiful bike that is sure to become a future classic.
