Vehicle Overview
Ducati 1299 Superleggera may not look much different than a regular 1299 Panigale in the first look but its 167 kg of race ready weight and 215 HP can claim it the sole winner of nearly every competition, even before racing. Carrying a carbon fiber frame, body panels and swing-arm, 1299 Superleggera uses just the premium parts from every top component manufacturer. It will soon rival the BMW HP4 Carbon Fiber while its not road legal currently.BMW HP4 Race is a premium sportbike that carries loads of carbon fiber in its bodywork. This makes it good for just 171.4 kg of weight and that too with fuel and all fluids. The 998cc, four cylinder engine powering HP4 Race is good for 215 HP and 120 Nm of torque. High power and low weight combines to bring the best throttle response from a bike of its segment. BMW offers Ohlins fully adjustable suspension, Brembo brakes and Pirelli Diabolo Superbike Slick SC2 tyres with the motorcycle. Riders can opt for low or high seat option with BMW's in-house customization option.
