Ducati revealed its new 1199 Superleggera in 2014.
The motorcycle is an ultra-light version of the standard 1199 model and is packed with a series of special features that give it a fairly unique character, with only 500 units available and each unit being individually numbered. Developed with weight in mind, the Ducati 1199 Superleggera weighs only 155kg. This ultra low weight is combined with an 1198cc, Superquadro, L twin cylinder, Desmodromic, liquid cooled engine with valve actuation and four valves per cylinder. In terms of power the engine 200hp at 11,500rpm and 99ft lbs of torque at 10,200rpm.
The Ducati 1199 Superleggera is built on a Monoscocca frame which further enhances the motorcycle’s performances. Sleek and aggressive, it is based on the award-winning design of other Ducati superbikes but features a modified front cowl shape for increased aerodynamic performance at high speeds. Fashioned entirely in carbon fibre, the bodywork wraps tautly around the 1199 Superleggera’s muscular interior and is finished in unmistakable Corse Red to announce the performance within. We are privileged to offer this extremely rare and special example; this bike remains unregistered and boasts delivery miles only. One of just 500 worldwide, this is a stunning piece of machinery in collector condition.
