It is said that all good things must come to an end, and that is what is becoming of the Ducati Panigale. With the presentation at the World Superbike Series of the Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition, the Italian company draws the curtain with this final iteration.

It may be that they do not want to try and improve on perfection. Ducati has saved the best for last with this powerful V-2 engine. Already touted as the most powerful V-2 in existence, the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition features valves that have been expanded from a stock 46.8mm to a full 48mm with corresponding increases throughout the firing system. Other details include a top-notch Akrapovic titanium exhaust system, Öhlins suspension, Pirelli Diablo Racing radials, and Brembo brakes.

Capable of pushing 209 horsepower at 11,000 rpm, this Final Edition has upgraded titanium connecting rods and valves to withstand the strain. All that power wrapped within its advanced aluminum monocoque makes this a bike to remember as the Panigale R blasts off into the sunset of history.
