Ducati now proudly introduces its latest limited edition dream model, the highly exclusive 1199 Superleggera.

The new machine combines a precious cocktail of materials such as titanium, magnesium and carbon fibre to set the highest power-to-weight ratio of any production motorcycle.

Producing more than 200hp and weighing-in at just 155kg (341.7lb) dry, Ducati showcase their innovative engineering and stylish approach to design, while affirming the maxim ‘Authentic Italian Performance’.

The 1199 Superleggera has been offered first to owners of the Desmosedici RR or R version Superbikes, giving them the right of first refusal to purchase the new model.

Its success has exceeded all expectations; currently, 75 percent of the 500 examples which will be produced, have already been sold.

The 1199 Superleggera will be displayed on the Ducati stand of the EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy, in November.
