You’ll need to pass a test to drive this motorcycle

Before we tell you more about the specifics regarding this motorcycle, including information about the engine, the design of the bike, and much more, we have to start with ensuring that you are safe to drive this bike. Of course, there are different rules and regulations depending on where in the world you are based. The best thing to do is to use a website like permit.bike for more information so that you can sort out everything that is going to be required if it is not yet possible for you to ride a motorbike like this in your area. The last thing you want to do is get on the wrong side of the law or cause an accident because you are driving something you shouldn’t be.

So, what can you expect from the Ducati 1299 Superleggera?

With the limited-edition 1299 Superleggera, Ducati have certainly raised the bar. Not only does it feature the most powerful twin-cylinder mill to date but the brand has done everything to ensure riders have as much control as possible. There is only one place to begin, though, and this is with the design. This bike was designed to minimize losses caused due to drag and weight. 7075 aluminium inserts are laminated into the structure at pivotal points, reinforcing and strengthening without adding appreciable bulk or weight.

The chassis; what to expect

What about the chassis? Well, it features a minimal skeletal structure, which relies a lot on the strength of the stress skin and engine to ensure everything functions probably. The structured is finished out with a single-side, carbon-fiber swingarm. The factory tapped Öhlins for all of the suspension components. In terms of braking duties, there are four key components here: 245 mm disc in back, and the twin-pot caliper, 330 mm discs up front, and the Brembo Monobloc M50 calipers.

The control systems and the engine bring the real magic to this bike

Despite the incredible appearance of the bike, there is no denying that the real magic happens in the engine and its control systems. A lot like the rest of the Ducati 1299 Superleggera, the factory took steps so that the engine would be lightened through the use of valves and fasteners made from titanium. With a 116 mm bore and only a 60.8 mm stroke, the engine is oversquare but it definitely does not lack when it comes to torque. In fact, this is the most powerful twin cylinder from Ducati to-date. Waste heat is managed through a radiator and water jacket. The combustion chambers mount two fuel injectors each, meaning you get four in total, which are all controlled by the Mitsubishi EFI.

We hope that this has revealed everything you need to know about the exciting Ducati 1299 Superleggera. We hope that you are as excited about this range of bikes as we are! There is a lot to love about this powerful motorbike, which gives riders more control than ever before. Not only does it ride well but it looks incredible too. With all of the boxes ticked, it is not hard to see why the Ducati 1299 Superleggera is one of the best options out there today!

If you take a look online, you will see that there are plenty of different retailers offering this bike and there are now secondhand options available for those of you who are looking to make your money go a bit further. However, you do need to be mindful when you are purchasing because you need to make sure that the bike is in perfect condition so that you do not end up with an expensive repair on your hands or a worrying safety issue. Therefore, due diligence is required. Do your research and read the comments that have been left by others to be certain.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
