2019 1299 Panigale R Final Edition Ducati Sports Bike – Features and Specs

Cutting-edge performance

At 11,000 RPM, the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition has 209 horsepower and 14.5 kg of torque, making it the most potent Ducati twin ever. Because of the lighter crankshaft and giant pin, the “Final Edition” Superquadro engine is Euro 4 compliant. Titanium is used for both the con-rods and the intake-exhaust valves. It means that instead of having four segments as in Superbike engines (which have six), each of the two pistons has just two.

Instead of the 1299 Panigale’s 46.8-mm intake and 39.5-mm exhaust valves, the new MotoGP bike has 48- and 39.5-mm valves (against 38.2 mm on the 1299 Panigale). Camshafts with better profiles and higher valve lift have also enhanced fluid dynamics in the intake and exhaust systems.

Slipper and self-servo clutches have been added to the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition’s grip, enhancing both feel and stability, while the usage of forged aluminum clutch baskets has also been used.

Aerodynamic holes in the throttle body with a profile intended to optimize airflow are used with a high-permeability filter in the intake system. For the 1299 Panigale, on the other hand, the intake horn heights have been optimized for each cylinder head, rather than having an identical length.

All-titanium Akrapovic exhaust, including a high dual silencer (Euro 4 compliance), is included on the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition, the official World Superbike championship Panigale.

MotoGP electronics

The Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) is installed on the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition (IMU). Information on the vehicle’s characteristics is sent to the Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC EVO), ABS Cornering, and Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC EVO) through this system. DWC EVO, DTC EVO, and Engine Brake Control (EBC) benefit from automated tire size calibration and final drive ratio systems. It is possible to customize these systems to suit the rider’s needs by selecting from various pre-selected intervention levels for each riding mode (Race, Sport, and Wet). Ducati Data Analysis+ GPS (DDA GPS) is also included on the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition, allowing the rider to record lean angles while on the road. The racing-derived handlebar switchgear, which enables quick DTC, DWC, or EBC changes when track riding, round off the fantastic collection of electrical equipment.

Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC EVO)

Based on a new algorithm, DTC EVO on the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition can intervene quicker and more precisely than ever before. DTC EVO uses the Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) to continuously measure the lean angle and adequately determine the degree of intervention required for appropriate rear wheelspin. DTC EVO (according to the DTC EVO level setting).

DTC EVO also affects the throttle body valves and regulates spark and injection advance. The throttle body valves are used in all cases when the DTC EVO does not need to intervene quickly, providing a more fluid engine response and management.

When the system detects rear wheelspin, the system will intervene to keep it under control using more straightforward sorts of traction control. The mechanism minimizes intervention when the ideal grip is re-established until spin returns and the cycle repeats. There will be an oscillation around an ‘ideal intervention line,’ which represents the traction limit, on this graph. It is possible to get the system closer to the ideal intervention line using DTC EVO. When the back tire wears out, for example, this may be beneficial.

To further strengthen its ability to intervene, the DTC EVO has a new feature that lets the bike be ridden at an advanced level traditionally reserved for experts and professionals. To help the bike rotate around its front wheel, the user may request greater wheelspin than the typical intervention level, enabling it to finish the turning line. While keeping safety limitations in mind, DTC EVO allows riders to ‘close’ the taken bar with the back wheel, essentially allowing them to ‘close’ the line.

Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC EVO)

The newest version of Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC EVO) is also included in the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition. This system’s controller structure and algorithm have been completely redesigned to meet the demands of the rider better. As a result of the improvements in DWC EVO, wheelies are now detected more accurately, and the system intervenes with more understanding.

Engine Brake Control (EBC)

This device, known as EBC (Engine Brake Control), was designed to assist MotoGP and Superbike championship racers in maintaining vehicle stability in extreme turn-in situations by balancing the forces given to the rear tire during the engine braking. The EBC administers a precise Ride-by-Wire throttle opening to balance the torque forces acting on the tire by keeping track of the throttle position, gear selection, and crankshaft deceleration rate. The 1299 Panigale R Final Edition Ducati control panel may specify three EBC levels then be incorporated into the three Riding Modes.

Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down

Clutchless downshifts are possible with the DQS with up/down function, making severe braking even more effective. When the gear shift is pressed, a signal is sent to the ECU through a two-way microswitch incorporated within the shift lever linkage. As a result of the system’s complete Ride-by-Wire management, it operates in two distinct ways while shifting up and down, merging spark advance and injection adjustment during upshifts with an auto-blipper function during downshifts. During downshifts, the technology works in tandem with the slipper clutch and the EBC to enable smooth shifting even on the most challenging tracks.

Monocoque technology

To preserve the overall dry weight of the Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition at only 179 kg, an ultra-compact monocoque frame developed for racing has played a vital role by integrating the airbox.

The new Superquadro engine is used as a stressed frame in the compact, enhanced-strength die-cast aluminum monocoque construction. In two aluminum bushes, the steering head bearings are held in place by a monocoque that protrudes forward from the cylinder heads. The monocoque serves as both a frame and an air-box. The aluminum fuel tank bottom seals off the fuel circuit, which includes the injectors, as well as the throttle bodies and air filter.


The 1299 Ducati Panigale R Final Edition has a mechanical suspension and a 24° rake. Ohlins NIX 30 TiN-coated upside-down forks with a 43 mm travel are mounted up front, and the “Final Edition” rear shock is a fully adjustable TTX36 monoshock with a titanium spring from hlins. In addition, the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition includes an adjustable Ohlins steering damper.

Braking system

Brembo M50 monobloc brakes are used on the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition to give enormous stopping power. For maximum rigidity, the calipers are machined from a single piece of solid metal. Enhanced hydraulic performance implies more powerful stopping power and improved brake lever accuracy and ‘feel,’ all of which are important. To provide the best possible braking performance, the two Brembo Monobloc calipers each have four pistons 30 millimeters in diameter. Also included on the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition is Bosch’s ultra-lightweight 9.1 MP control unit, which manages the ABS Cornering system.
