The new Superquadro 195 HP engine is exquisitely incorporated into the monocoque chassis. Engineering solutions marked by an innovation in details have been implemented to take the dry weight down to an incredible 164 kg. Ducati styling inside and out is further enhanced by the most exclusive components. Cutting-edge electronics unleash power and refine riding precision, and with a power-to-weight ratio of 1.19 HP/kg, there's nothing like it in the world. 1199 Panigale: 5 moves to become the new and extreme standard of reference in sport bikes.
Built for racing, the 1199 Panigale R gives riders a further degree of freedom in the choice of the optimal set-up of the bike, offering the possibility of moving the pivot of the swingarm, in order to increase or decrease the chain pull angle. By moving the pivot of the swingarm up, the chain pull angle increases, thus extending the single rear shock absorber. In this way the rear dive effect while accelerating is reduced, and consequently the unabsorbed torque is returned to provide greater drive. Should there be poor grip or rain, the 1199 Panigale R allows the swingarm to be adjusted to use lower chain pull angles, which make the application of the torque more linear and so provide greater stability. The new 1199 Panigale R offers four different levels for the swingarm pivot: starting from level 0, which corresponds to the chain pull angle of the standard 1199 Panigale, it is possible to increase the height of the swingarm pivot by 2 mm or decrease it by 2 or 4 mm.
