Ducati 1299 Superleggera launched in India at Rs 1.12 Crore


Ducati has launched the 1299 Superleggera in India at Rs 1.12 Crore ex-showroom, Delhi, making it the most expensive two-wheeler currently on sale in the country. The motorcycle made its debut in November last year, at EICMA 2016 in Milan, Italy.


Along with aluminium, there’s an extensive usage of carbon fibre in the construction. Both front and rear wheels, monocoque frame, and swingarm are made out of carbon, resulting in a kerb weight of just 167 kg (368 lbs). Other bits and bobs like screws have been made from Titanium. Overall, the weight has been reduced by 40%.


The 1299 Superleggera is powered by a 1,285 cc L-twin cylinder liquid-cooled engine, producing 215 hp at 11,000 rpm and 146.5 Nm (108 lb-ft) of torque at 9,000 rpm, mated to a 6-speed Ducati Quick Shift gearbox. This is the same set-up from the 1299 Panigale, but with a higher state of tune. The bike features fully adjustable Öhlins front and rear suspension.

Stopping power comes from 2 x 330 mm discs at the front and 245 mm at the rear. Both sides feature Bosch cornering ABS. Other features include Ducati Slide Control, Engine Brake control, Ducati Power Launch and Ducati Traction Control.

During EICMA 2016, Ducati said the 1299 Superleggera is limited to just 500 units. Check out the gallery below.
