Ducati’s Refined 1199 Panigale R Wins Best of the Best Sportbike

The 2013 1199 Panigale R from Ducati is a polished version of the previous 1199 model, but is still just as menacing. Starting at just under $30,000 the Panigale R’s new titanium connecting rods and lightweight flywheel produce more responsive revs and a higher ceiling of 12,000 rpm. A larger rear rocket enables lower final-drive gearing for quicker acceleration. Engine output remains at 195 hp and 98 ft lbs of torque, but the middle range is more robust.
