Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > Panigale R
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The Panigale R is Ducati's street-legal race bike. Even though it still uses the older (and smaller) 1,198 cc engine, it makes 205 hp, like the bigger engine, but with an explosive power delivery. It's equipped with non-electronic, fully adjustable Ohlins suspension and a full titanium Akrapovc exhaust system. Track electronics are standard and more complex than on the Panigale S. It also uses a lightweight lithium-ion battery. Oh, and it's the most expensive Ducati you can buy today.
