Added in: Ducati

The Ducati 1199 Superleggera is a motorcycle so beautifully crafted, i dream at will about one sitting pretty in my drawing room. It is fast too, no wonder, the dream never lasts too long and anyways, only 500 of these will be made and each one of them will be sold for £54,000. So even if you have the money, you need an invitation from Ducati to buy one.

What makes Ducati’s Superleggera special, is that it makes 200 hp, which is  7 hp more than the BMW S1000 RR. It boasts of a dry weight of 155 kgs, which is at par with the Duke 390’s weight with all it’s fluids. The Ducati Superleggera boasts of the highest power-to-weight ratio amongst all the production bikes built till date. So one would expect all these exceptional numbers and figures to translate into exceptional performance on the track too, and it does happen. The Ducati Superleggera goes from standstill to the 400 metre mark in 9.91 seconds, which is exactly as fast as the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Watch the video and then watch it again, then push the replay button, because you will want to see the bike again and again and again…
