About This Bike: - Based on the homologation-special Panigale R, the 200bhp Superleggera ('super light' in Italian) weighs just 155kg dry, or 166kg wet with no fuel, which is the same as the Bologna firm's WSB racer. Ducati created 200 shiny new parts for this most exclusive slice of exotica, including a magnesium frame and wheels, a carbon fibre seat unit, a bucket-full of titanium fasteners, a feather-light 700g lithium battery and revised electronics.
Race-bike-light the Superleggera steers with the precision of a WSB machine and has the braking power and stability to match. There's masses of feeling for grip from the Pirelli Super Corsa SP tyres and a sophisticated traction control system to helps you tease out a quick lap time.
Hairy cams, titanium exhaust valves, 97g-lighter short-skirt pistons and a 396g-lighter crank all help the Superleggera's motor reach 200bhp and make a hefty 99ftlb of torque and replacing steel fasteners with titanium reduces weight. Fuelling and throttle connection is top notch, which is just as well given the brute power on tap. With its massively over-square engine you need to rev the big twin hard for best results. There’s a choice of Race, Sport and Wet riding modes offering differing levels of power delivery, traction control, anti-wheelie and engine braking control.
