Just in time for Festivus: Two 2018 Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Editions!

2018 Ducati Panigale 1299R Final Edition #461 for sale on eBay

2018 Ducati Panigale 1299R Final Edition #519 for sale on eBay

Scrambling for a last-second, money-is-no-object gift for two of your closest friends? Look no further! Even the colors are holiday-themed on this brace of 2018 Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Editions. All joking aside, there isn’t much time left to jump on these two, and they’d make a hell of a lot cooler gift than a Mercedes with a bow on the hood.

More than just a pretty paintjob, the 2018 Ducati Panigale 1299R Final Edition carried the most advanced v-twin Bologna ever spat out, which was fitting as it signaled the end of Ducati’s development of its most famous asset. With bigger vales, 13.1:1 compression, titanium connecting rods and electronics that would embarrass NASA, the FE managed 209 horsepower and 104 lb-ft of torque. The new fours may be more powerful in their ultimate form, but they’re cheating with more pots. This truly will go down as one of the engines of the century.

There were scant options available, as the bikes came with every box you could check as standard. That means electronic Ohlins suspension front and rear, top-whack Brembos and a full titanium Akrapovic exhaust system. Wet weight, with almost a full tank of gas, was 419 pounds.

As you might expect, there’s little fault to find with either of these two examples. Numbers 461 and 519 of 1,299 produced, they have only done 610 and 765 miles, respectively. Number 519 entirely as it left Bologna, and is listed slightly lower than 461. Number 461 has had its wheels powdercoated white and wears the optional Akrapovic titanium racing exhaust. They’re both rolling on their stock Pirelli Diablos.

More than likely, two lucky riders are headed for a wonderful treat next riding season, but we think it would be cool if these two were kept as a pair in someone’s very well-appointed garage.

  • Sorry – Why would it “be cool if these two were kept as a pair in someone’s well-appointed garage”? I’d substitute “lame” for “cool” in your post. Best wishes for the new year.

  • Curious why someone purchase a limited addition bike or two in this case and then sell after just a few hundred miles for a substantial loss? I love all the limited addition Ducks but it seems depreciation is a killer on them.

  • One to ride and one to leave in my den. But then, I can not properly ride a bike like these. Maybe one for the den (waste), and the rest of the money for two or three smaller, cool bikes that I might have a chance of enjoying properly. Happy Merry Xmas all.

  • MikeH –
    Spouse found out the price and now the sale is part of the divorce settlement?

  • Maybe it’s as simple as the guy has some money and just likes to buy nice bikes. Once his interest wanes he moves them on. It might also be that they aren’t the blue chip investments he thought they would be.

  • These are both 1 owner bikes from 2 different owners. I’m a wholesaler and I own both of them. I have them consigned to the Ducati dealer in Raleigh, NC.

  • This color scheme, while checking off the “Hey I’m Italian and proud of it!” box, looks hideous on these bikes.

  • I have the 2017 Anniversario panigale 1299s and it is a remarkable bike among a lifetime of great bikes I’ve been fortunate to own. I know the reasons behind the v4 and I’m sure they are better stronger faster.. but for me the sound of that v twin is my end. I own an 888 SPO as well ams whomever buys these will be happy forever.

  • Someone liked them. #461 is sold.

  • It showed #461 sold 2 days ago. Now it’s back on eBay at the same price. Payment problem with the buyer?

  • 461 sold but there was a problem with the transaction so it was cancelled. Both bikes are at Garcia Moto in Raleigh NC for sale.
