Ducati 1199 Panigale R Overview
If you’re looking for the perfect track day bike then take a look at the Ducati 1199 Panigale R. The model comes with quite a hefty price tag, around £20,000 from new, but we can see why.
Originally released back in 2013, the Panigale R has had a few tweaks to perfect it over the years including the race-bred engine that features 202bhp. Top speeds reaching well over 180mph, but as you can imagine it’s not great on fuel consumption, then again this isn’t the sort of bike you’ll be taking on your daily commute anyway!
If you’ve got the cash to splash then why not invest in the Panigale R.
