The 2013 Ducati 1199 Panigale R is the most extreme Ducati ever made without a grain of doubt. Ducati has taken all the firepower of the Panigale S model, and then added some more gunpowder to it to create the extreme madness that the Panigale R is. The 1199 Panigale and S models now stand beside the new R firecracker. Also new for 2013 is a new arctic white color scheme.

The enhancements on the 1199 Panigale R are made primarily by Ducati Corse keeping in mind the World Superbike homologation requirements. In its R model, the Panigale gets Titanium con-rods and a lighter crankshaft flywheel. Both changes put together shave off 1.3 kg from the bike. DLC-coated rocker-arms and revised engine mapping now enhance the Superquadro engine’s crank acceleration and allow it to rev 500rpm higher to a 12,000rpm limit. Peak power is rated at 195hp  @ 10750rpm and peak torque is 132Nm @ 9000rpm.

The new model also features a 4-point adjustable swingarm pivot for a more personalized set up for the rider. A race kit consisting of high-penetration racing screen, fairing mirror caps in machined alloy and a full Termignoni exhaust system with dedicated ECU mapping (for track use only). The system provides an impressive power increase of 3% at the top of the rev-range and 15% in the mid-range.

Further enhancements include lightweight carbon fibre rear hugger, rear suspension guard, heels guards, ignition switch surround and top fairing inner panels and carbon fibre protectors for the single-sided swingarm and clutch cover. With all the changes incorporated, the 1199 Panigale R weighs just 165kg (dry), with ABS. The Panigale R also comes loaded with GPS-enhanced Ducati Data Acquisition system, for automatic lap times and circuit map-linked data. The 1199 Panigale R is dressed in Ducati red with defining white race features, sporting a mix of red and brushed aluminium on the fuel tank with lightweight forged wheels by Marchesini in black.
