Ducati 1199 Panigale: The ‘Nuda Veloce’ by Moto Corse

This Moto Corse infused Ducati Panigale 1199 will blow your mind!

Looking for a naked superbike that’s a cut above the rest? Yes? Look no further because Moto Corse have built exactly what you need. Moto Corse and Ducati go hand in hand; over the years the San Marino based company has churned out aftermarket upgrades and flashy parts for Ducatis, MV Agustas and Bimotas but this rather splendid Panigale 1199, dubbed the ‘Nuda Veloce’ comes from the company’s motorcycle laboratory, in Japan.

When you think ‘Panigale’, you think of red or white fairings covering an Italian rocket, usually parked along the Riviera. Moto Corse’s 2015 attempt challenges your perceptions; think ‘that’s no moon…it’s a space station’ and you’re halfway there. It’s a radical carbon and titanium machine, stripped down and geared towards the track.

Although the Nuda Veloce concept first arrived on the scene in 2014, this 2015 concept model is a slightly more updated approach with a more aggressive riding position, complete with a new high-tech LED head light and large diameter, tubular exhaust and a sensationally hand crafted aluminum tank.

The 2014 model was turned into a limited edition range of 500 bikes but it looks like this 2015 model might be left as a one-of-a-kind unless more interest can be generated. Interest generation is wasy though, fund generation isn’t. The only downside to the Nuda Veloce is the cost: just over $150,000. It sounds a lot but when you make a running total of the parts including Ohlins forks and mono-shock, Brembo brakes, an EvoGP clutch system, the enormous but beautiful titanium Termignoni exhaust as well as the cost of the carbon fiber, it’s probably worth it.

We can’t afford it but one thing is for sure: with an engine as beautiful as the 90° V-twin Superquadro, it seems a bit rude to keep it hidden under plastics.
