The Ducati 1199R Panigale, in depth

Last year, we described the Ducati 1199 Panigale as ‘quite simply the best Ducati superbike ever’, and frankly, we did not expect it to be beaten in a hurry, let alone to be surpassed in just one year. But that’s exactly what the 2013 Ducati 1199R Panigale does. Described by one reviewer as ‘a Panigale dipped in tabasco sauce’, this is a sports bike to make women weak and grown men weep.

If you have the kind of job that means you have £30,000 spare for a motorbike like this, then chances are it will be a pretty high pressure position. But don’t worry, because there is simply no better way to let off steam that unleashing this beast around your favourite track. Lighter, faster and higher revving than its breathtaking predecessor, the 2013 1199R Panigale smashes the 200 horse power barrier with a 3% uplift from the 1199S, plus an extra 500 revs available at the top end. Which should more than enough to burn away the frustrations of any job.

The engine has been refined to lose 1.3kg through a lighter flywheel and titanium conrods, while carbon fibre in everything from the clutch cover to the ignition switch surround saves yet more weight. Meanwhile, the exhaust has been replaced with a full Termignomi system that boosts midrange power by as much as 15%.

You’ll need to be at your very best to tame this awesome powerhouse, but to help you along, you can tweak your 1199R Panigale to suit your own personal riding style, with an electronically adjustable four point swingarm pivot that allows you to alter the traction as you leave a corner. Ducati have even included a dedicated engine control unit purely for track riding, backed by a GPS Ducati Data Analyser to help you keep track of everything as the world blurs around you.

The superlatives flowed thick and fast with the original 1199 Panigale, leaving us with few words left to describe the R version. But perhaps that says it all; perhaps the best way to describe the 2013 1199R Panigale is to say that it will leave you, like us, simply speechless.
