Ducati 1299 Superleggera

The marvelous 2017 Ducati 1299 Superleggera was designed to push the boundaries of two-wheeled madness beyond everything we’ve ever dreamed about. Sexy, ravishing, alluring, could be just a few words to describe this bike’s amazing looks, but this masterpiece was born to be a racing bike, even though it offers way more than that.

Apparently this Ducati is so powerful that even the most experienced riders will think twice before going for a cruise,  and aside from the obvious dare, Ducati’s newewst project offers both attractive aesthetics and extreme experiences.

The 2017 Ducati 1299 Superleggera benefits from 215 ponies, which leads to an incredible power-to-weight ratio, even by Ducati’s standards. One of the most powerful production V-twin engines ever helps the 344 lbs bike move forward with an acceleration and speed that could literally knock your socks off.

And thanks to the bike’s incredibly strong and lightweight carbon fiber frame, subframe, wheels, and swingarm, the Superleggera will go like a bat out of hell. Please note that this motorcycle has been also equipped with an Ohlins fork and rear stock, an  Akrapovic titanium exhaust, Brembo brakes, traction control, wheelie control, engine braking control, and cornering anti-lock brakes.

But such extreme performance and all that high tech will come at a cost: Ducati will only deliver 500 of these rare beasts, and you’ll have to inquire to find out more about purchase costs.
