At Rs. 1.12 Crore, Ducati 1299 Superleggera Is India’s Most Expensive Bike!

Last year, the Big Dog K9 Red Chopper 111 made its India debut with an ex-showroom price of Rs. 59 lakh, which made the custom cruiser the most expensive bike in the country. But now we have a new king to take over that title. Bow down before the Ducati 1299 Superleggera as it comes with a heart attack-inducing price tag of Rs. 1.12 crore and that’s just the ex-showroom price. Add the taxes and insurance and the superbike is going to cost a lot more than the aforementioned figure.Ducati_1299_Superleggera (3)The Ducati 1299 Superleggera had made its official world debut at the EICMA 2016. With the extensive use of carbon-fiber in its construction, the superbike is among the lightest high-performance bikes on the planet. The frame, wheels and swingarm are made of the lighter material. There is also aluminium and titanium to both strengthen as well as lighten the machine comprehensively. Power is drawn from a 1285cc twin-cylinder Superquadro engine which has been taken from the Ducati Panigale, but reworked to produce 215bhp of power. Ducati is offering a race kit version as well, which pushes out an additional 5bhp to spice up things more. The kit adds a titanium Akrapovic race exhaust, race screen, plate holder removal kit, kickstand removal kit, billet mirror plugs, front and rear paddock stands and a bike cover to the package.Ducati_1299_Superleggera (2)A multi-adjustable 43 mm Ohlins FL936 inverted front forks and the Ohlins TTX36 shock absorbers at the rear make up the suspension set-up. Brembo discs at the front and rear with M50 monobloc calipers bring the missile to a controlled and composed halt. Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres form the footwear. Onboard electronics to assist the rider in keeping the Ducati 1299 Superleggera on its two wheels are a bunch of super-smart riding aid systems – Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Slide Control, Power Launch, and Engine Brake Control being crucial ones.Ducati 1299 SuperleggeraOnly 500 units of the Ducati 1299 Superleggera will be made and sold globally. Ducati has not announced the allotment for the Indian market yet. So before they limit it to a single digit number, all the celebrities, highly successful young entrepreneurs and young chaps with rich dads should rush to the nearest Ducati dealership and place an order.
