Ducati India has officially started taking orders for the extremely exotic, limited edition 1299 Superleggera. The price – a mind boggling INR 1.12 Crores (ex-showroom). But what makes the 1299 Superleggera so special? For starters, everything’s made out of carbon fiber. In fact it is the world’s first factory produced motorcycle to feature so many carbon fiber bits at once. The swing arm, frame, sub-frame, wheels and even the full fairing are all crafted out of carbon fiber; hence the suffix – Superleggera – Italian for lightweight.
The 1299 Superleggera’s heart – a 1285cc L-twin engine that delivers a staggering 215hp at 11,000 rpm, along with 146Nm of peak torque at 9,000 rpm. These outputs make the 1299 Superleggera’s engine the most powerful factory twin-cylinder ever built. Only 500 units of the 1299 Superleggera will be offered globally.
