Ducati pays tribute to the powerful twin-cylinder engine that made history with the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition Super Bike World Championship. The Bologna-made twin-cylinder has long been a winner at SBK, from Marco Lucinelli’s first victory on April 3, 1988, with 851 (at the first World Championships for Modified Production Models) by Chase Davis and Marco Melandri’s 2017 Through an astonishing victory. At Panigale R. Desmoquattro, Testastretta, Superquadro: Ducati-designed twin-cylinder 4-valve engine with desmodromic timing is powered by motorcycles that have made Supersport history for three decades. Motorcycles have won 330 races in the World Super Bike Championship. The 2020 Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition Sports Bike is a Eurob4 road bike with a perfect balance of ultra-high engine performance and spot-on race suspension, available in a single (but not limited) series. The “Final Edition” is derived from the Ducati Superquadro 1299 Superleggera engine, which features a power output of 209hp at 11,000rpm and a torque of 14.5kg at 9,000rpm. Instead, the chassis is similar to the Panigale R, with Hollins mechanical suspension and a 24 ° rack.
2020 Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition Sports Bike – Features and Specs
The color scheme is red, white, and green, with red wheels.
The 1299 Panigale R Final Edition with 1299 Superleggera is the most potent Ducati twin ever, with 209hp at 11,000rpm and 14.5kgm at 9,000rpm. The “Final Edition” super Quadro engine is compatible with the Euro 4, which has a lighter crankshaft, larger crank pins, and tungsten balance pads. Con-rods, such as intake-exhaust valves, contain titanium. Instead, two 116 mm diameter pistons have only two sections and glide on steel cylinder liners like superbike engines.
Intake valves have a diameter of 48mm, compared to 46.8 mm on 1299 panicles, while exhaust valves have a diameter of 39.5 mm (compared to 38.2 mm on 1299 panicles).
Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit 1299 is installed on Panigale R Final Edition (IMU). It notifies ABS Cornering, Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC EVO) and Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC EVO) systems on vehicle dynamics. The performance of DTC EVO, DWC EVO, and engine brake control (EBC) is constantly improved thanks to automatic tire size calibration and a final drive ratio system. All of these systems offer a variety of interference levels that are pre-selected based on ride mode (race, sport, or wet) and can be customized as needed. In addition, the Ducati Data Analysis + GPS (DDA + GPS) system on the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition allows the rider to record lean angles.
Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC EVO)
On the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition, the DTC EVO is based on an algorithm that allows faster and more accurate interference. The DTC EVO interacts with the Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), which measures continuous leaning angles and uses it to determine the degree of interference required to maintain proper rear wheel spin (DTC EVO). According to the order of the level).
The DTC EVO controls the spark and injection advance by working on the throttle body valves. The use of throttle body valves ensures ideal combustion properties in all cases that do not require the immediate incorporation of DTC EVO, resulting in more fluid engine response and control.
Engine Brake Control (EBC)
The EBC (engine brake control) system was designed to help maximize vehicle stability by balancing the force applied to the rear tires under strong engine brakes in motor GP and superbike championship races. Under tight brakes, ABC monitors the throttle position, selected gear, and crankshaft reduction rate and uses ride-by-wire throttle openings to balance the pushing torque on the tire. There are three EBC levels: 1299 Panigale R. Final Edition Selected by Control Panel; they are quickly integrated into the three riding modes to provide even more efficient assistance to riders.
Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down
The DQS with an up / down function not only reduces shift times but also allows clutchless down changes, making severe braking more efficient than ever. A two-way micro switch is integrated into the shift lever linkage, which signals the ECU when the gear shift starts. The system works in various ways for up-shift and down-shift, combining complete ride-by-wire control, spark advance and injection adjustment with the auto-bleeper function during the down-shift during the up-shift. The scope and duration of the system are designed to enable smooth shifting even during fast track riding. During the downshift, the system cooperates with Slipper Clutch and ABC.
Mechanical suspension and 24 ° rack are standard in the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition. This bike has a 43mm fully adjustable Hullins NIX 30 TiN coated upside-down fork up front and a fully adjustable Echelon TTX36 monoshock with a titanium spring on the back of the “Final Edition.” The 1299 Panigale R Final Edition Ohlins steering damper is also adjustable.
The Brembo M50 monoblock calipers, which are small and lightweight, give great strength to the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition. The calipers are solid alloy blocks to withstand hardness and warping during hard braking. It translates into improved hydraulic performance, which ensures exceptional braking power and improved brake lever accuracy and ‘feels.’ The twin Brembo monoblock calipers, each with four 30mm pistons, are cut on 330mm discs to provide excellent braking performance. Last, the ABS Cornering System 1299 is installed on the Panigale R Final Edition, controlled by the Ultra-Light Bosch 9.1MP control unit.
