2013 Ducati Panigale 1199 R

One of the highlights of Ducati new models launches in 2013 was the 1199 Panigale R at the new Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

With such an exclusive superbike – only 1,000 will produced, with about 250 arriving on US shores – the Austin circuit, which hosted round 2 of the MotoGP Championship in April, was the optimal location for the launch.

To create the 1199 R, Ducati basically took its “S” model, and loaded it with race-specific features. The 1199 R has a light weight of 367.3 lbs with ABS, a three-percent increase in power over the S model, a four-point adjustable swingarm, a full Termignoni exhaust system and dedicated ECU, and a host of carbon-fiber bits, among other things.

Besides one of the top performers in the Ducati lineup, the 2013 1199 R is also one of the sexiest superbikes to date.
