What we have here is the result of a massive checkbook and exclusive access to trick go bits, fueling a habit forming need for speed! Not for the faint of heart or wallet, this 2014 Ducati 1199 Panigale Superleggera has been fully worked over into a World Superbike-level race package for one very lucky and well-heeled enthusiast.
As the ad says, this bike sports a Magnesium monocoque frame that is so light it is illegal for use on a WSBK grid. Translation: this bike is too cool even for Chaz Davies. The build kit is as long as War and Peace, but boils down to a few key figures: 209 hp, 346 lb. (wet) and a build cost of more than $220k. That makes the $103k asking price seem a little less steep, doesn't it?
The bike was built last year and developed extensively by Brian Sharp of Boulder Motorsports, Mick Boasman of Bikesport Developments and Pete Friedland. It has won club-level races under Friedland and saw a host of track days last year. It spent the winter getting freshened up for the '17 season.
The build list is too long for us to do it justice, so here it is from the horse's mouth:
Offered for sale is Superleggera #157 of 500. This particular bike is likely the only true magnesium-monocoque Ducati Superleggera built to a Superbike specification. Competition only, not street legal. Boulder Motorsports performed the engine build with an open checkbook. The rest of the machine was treated the same way and utilizes the very best of everything. Although ironically illegal for World Superbike rules for being under weight and non-homologated components (Mag frame, etc). This machine has had countless hours of development time under technical hands of Mick Boasman of Bikesport Developments, Brian Sharp of Boulder Motorsports and Pete Friedland. Completed in the early spring of 2016, it was brought to Road America on June 11, taking an easy win in Formula Thunder with Friedland on board.. The bike ran at two track days following and at Barber Motorsports Park and Daytona (1 race) in October 2016. This past winter the bike was gone through and refreshed by Chris Boy & staff at MotoCorse Performance to showroom condition including new paint, tires & services, where it exists now on display. The engine has only 400+ minutes of total run time on it and the entire machine has been gone through to make sure you are getting a gem of a bike with tons of spares and extra parts. (Run time is logged via Marelli ECU at different levels of RPM for maintenance purposes). You will not find another Ducati to this level of specification. $220,000+ invested. All invoice documentation will be provided to assist you with identifying part numbers and maintaining the machine. Let the details below and pictures tell the story. 209 RWHP & 346 lbs wet. Please contact Pete Friedland at 803-315-8665 if additional questions need to be answered.
