The R is highest-specced Panigaleand its Desmo engine can produce a whopping 195 hp @ 10,750 rpm, with a decent peak torque of 132 Nm (98.1 lb-ft) reached at a much more useable 9,000 rpm.

The 1199 Panigale R uses the company's latest type of frame, the aluminium monocoque one, a solution that differs radically from when other manufacturers have in store these days. The frame is developed with massive input from the top racing series including MotoGP and is said to offer better structural strength in a package that's lighter and narrower than what the competition has.

Electronically-adjustable Ohlins suspensions, and optional ABS

The 2013 1199 Panigale R also comes with electronically-adjustable Ohlins suspensions, and riders can alter mutiple parameters in order to have the bike respond ideally to their riding style.

The colour TFT display conveys a huge set of important data, including suspension settings and presets, lap times and offers easy access to the wide variety of other settings the comprehensive electronic aids of the bike come with.

LED daytime running lights are a standard feature, just like the carbon fiber fenders, race-grade radial-mount Brembo calipers and lightweight forged wheels. Judging by the $29,995 (€23,100) price tag on it, the 2013 Ducati 1199 Panigale R will also come equipped with a high-performance steering damper as standard.
