Ducati Panigale S Senna Superbike

Back on March 7, 1994, Formula 1 Legend Ayrton Senna gave Ducati the final approval to release a special edition superbike – the 916 Senna.

Ducati produced 300 Sennas, each one upgraded with SP bodywork, upgraded brakes, carbon-fiber mufflers and Ohlins rear suspension.

But shortly after Senna gave Ducati the approval to build the superbike donning a gold frame, black bodywork, and red wheels, the three-time F1 champion was killed while leading the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola (May 1, 1994).

Senna than became an object of tribute for the Bologna motorcycle manufacturer, and Ducati further honored Senna with two other editions – a 916 Senna II in 1997, and a 916 Senna III in 1998. These Senna models – along with the original 1994 Sena – have since become highly sought after by collectors from all over the world.

Forward to 2014, and Ducati has decided it was once again time to pay tribute to the Brazilian racer. In collaboration with the Senna Foundation, Ducati has released another tribute model – the 1199 Panigale S Senna.

Only 161 Panigale S Senna superbikes will be produced, honoring the number of races Senna competed in. The Senna is a Panigale S model donning the Senna black color scheme, red wheels, a racing exhaust system, and a production number inscribed on the top fork clamp. The Ducati Panigale S Senna will go on sale in June exclusively in Senna’s home country of Brazil.

Because most of us will never see one in person, here’s a photo gallery of the 2014 Ducati Panigale S Senna. Each hi-res image also makes for great wallpaper.
