The 1299 Panigale R Final Edition represents Ducati's tribute to the twin cylinder, an engine configuration that has written some of the most memorable pages in Superbike racing. From the first win in World Superbikes with Marco Lucchinelli, onboard the 851 on the 3rd of April, 1988, to 2017 with victories by Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri, twin cylinder engines from Borgo Panigale have been at the forefront of racing. Desmoquattro, Testastretta, Superquadro. Over the last three decades, Ducati four valve per cylinder twins have evolved and have featured on some of the most iconic motorcycles in racing, winning over 330 races in the World Superbike championship. From the 851 to the Panigale R, the heritage of Ducati twins passes through the 888, 916, 996, 998, 999, 1098, 1198 and the 1199, both on the market and on the race track.Extreme bore/stroke ratio
The Superquadro engine's bore/stroke ratio of 1.91:1 sets an extreme example of the power-maximizing ""oversquare"" architecture used in the world's most advanced racing engines. A short-stroke crankshaft and enormous pistons combined with large Desmodromically-actuated valves allow the Superquadro to breathe freely at high rpm, while a 1285cc combustion chamber ensures the ample torque that has made so many enthusiasts fall in love with Ducati's signature L-twin power.Brakes
