Among modern motorcycles, the Ducati 1199 Superleggera is the rarest of the rare. And THIS one is in PERFECT, Showroom-NEW condition — there’s not a single scratch or blemish to be found on the bike! It has had just one owner who rode it fewer than 2,900 miles. If you are a collector, an investor, a lover of the exotic, or you’re passionate about elite, high-performance motorcycles that go very FAST, or any combination of those characteristics, this is your BIG MOMENT! Please call Bob’s now at 1-888-269-2627. Ask to speak with one of our Certified Sales Advisors — Jim, Todd, or Kyle. This unique opportunity may not last long.
Not familiar with the 1199 Superleggera? That wouldn’t be too surprising because only 500 of them were produced in 2014, and at the original purchase price of $65,000, it isn’t a bike you’re likely to see on the street very often. It was built as an ultra-exclusive version of Ducati’s 1199 Panigale R, but with weight savings and power output taken to extreme levels. Ducati claims the Superleggera has the best power-to-weight ratio of any production motorcycle in history. Ducati’s CEO Claudio Domenicali said of this bike, “We asked our engineers to build the best of the best and do everything they ever dreamed of — building this bike for our best customers.”
A look at the SPECS will give you some idea:

CLUTCH: wet, multiplate clutch, slipper

REAR BRAKE: 245mm disc, two-piston caliper
FUEL TANK CAPACITY: 4.5 gal.
WET WEIGHT: 390 lb.
SEAT HEIGHT: 32.5 in.
But only RIDING can tell the whole story!
With more torque/power on tap across the board, the Superleggera has a broader powerband than its cousin the Panigale R, with more midrange oomph and a less peaky nature. That makes the Superleggera’s new left-handlebar-paddle-controlled, eight-level Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC), a welcome addition. Take it from someone who had the privilege of riding one of these at the track in Mugello, Italy: “Entering the front straight in fourth gear, the bike would wheelie at 150 mph before the system would intervene as I grabbed fifth, only for the front to get light again just before I toed the quickshifter into sixth. The Superleggera is a truly awe-inspiring machine and it’s almost inconceivable that it’s street-legal.”
