Ducati 1299 Superleggera
Ducati has just officially revealed the 1299 Superleggera at the EICMA show in Milan. This incredible king of superbikes, worth a cool £66k, comes with a 215bhp desmodromic engine, and a carbon fibre frame, swingarm, subframe and wheels, which help the bike tip the scales at 167kg – and that’s the wet weight! The power figures and the unbearable lightness of the bike make this one is a bit special.
There’s also a 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (6D IMU) to manage all the electronic controls, such as traction, slide and engine brake control, power launch and cornering ABS.
Oh, and the bike looks amazing!
