Ducati Preview: 2013 Ducati 1199 Panigale R

For 2013, Ducati has unveiled the R version of its 1199 Panigale. Unveiled at the 2012 EICMA International Motorcycle Show along with the water-cooled 2013 Hypermotard, and the 2013 Ducati Diavel Strada, the 2013 Ducati 1199 Panigale R is based on the S model.

This is an upgraded version of the sportbike for WSBK Homologation – but comes with new light-weight titanium connecting rods (-1.38 lbs), a lightened flywheel (-1.54 lbs) and the use of carbon-fiber throughout, making it is lighter than its predecessor. The Panigale R has a wet weight of 416.7 pounds.
