“When the end tells the whole story.” That’s how Ducati introduced the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition, the swan song to decades of twin-powered superbikes going back to the 851. We’re not entirely sure what that means, to be frank, but we don’t care because we know how special the Final Edition is, especially to those of you that prefer the intangibles of a V-2 over a V-4.
The Superquadro engine in the Final Edition had the honor of being the most powerful V-Twin engine to be fully homologated, producing 209 horsepower at 11,000 rpm and 104.7 pound-feet of torque at 9,000 rpm – plenty of oomph to move the 419 pound (wet) machine. The 1,285cc twin features a lighter crankshaft with tungsten inserts for optimal balance, titanium connecting rods, and titanium valves.
As a last hurrah for Ducati’s most advanced V2, the Final Edition more than fulfilled its objective. Per MCN: “With its Superleggera motor and pipes, Panigale R chassis and 1299 S evolution electronics the Final Edition is the ultimate expression of the Ducati’s V-twin superbike. Blisteringly fast, with handling and brakes to match, it’s a fitting end to the series and comes with everything you’d expect from an ‘R’ with delicious detailing, a reassuringly expensive price tag.”
This example is VIN: ZDMHAAMWXJB000019. The seller ordered the bike new from AMS Ducati Dallas.
According to the seller, “the bike immediately went into his ‘bike cave’ where it has been on display since the day that it arrived.”
The seller notes that the bike “comes factory with high mount Akra exhaust, carbon rear hugger, carbon front fender, carbon key cover, carbon exhaust cover, carbon rear shock cover and carbon air runner sides.”
Per the seller, there are no cosmetic blemishes of note.
