Ducati 1199 Panigale R Official Visual Promo

After the 1199 Panigale got out of Ducati's manufacturing plant, this bike has known a tremendously increasing wave of popularity. And with the new Panigale R, the Bolognese brand took things even further in the realm if street-legal racing-capable bikes, with the addition of more race-specced features.
With a power just under the 200 hp mark and a dry weight of just 165 kg (364 lbs), the 2013 Ducati 1199 Panigale R has one of the best power-to-weight ratios in the industry, making it an instant hit among the riders ready to spend the big bucks on such beasts.

In the US, the 1199 Panigale and the Diavel were the key bikes for a whopping 24% sales increase over 2012 compared to the previous year, so it's quite obvious the bike has a ton of market potential yet to be unleashed.
