The Ducati 1299 Panigale S Anniversario Special Edition

The Special Edition Ducati 1299 Price, Specs, And Details

Updated August 13, 2018

And now for Ducati’s second unveiling: the 1299 Panigale S Anniversario. With an impressive 205 hp, a high-tech electronics package, and with only 500 of them being made, this is going to be an instant collector’s item. If you want to celebrate Ducati’s 90th anniversary in style, then this is the bike for you. Recently unveiled at the World Ducati Week in Italy, by Casey Stoner and Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali, this is one of the most prestigious Ducati of all time. According to Ducati, the 1299 Panigale S Anniversario is their most technologically advanced superbike, complete with a wide range of updates and upgrades, putting it as close to a World Superbike machine as legally and logistically possible.

In terms of specification and aesthetics, this ultra-limited edition is smack bang in between the Panigale S and Panigale R, however it’s so much more than both of those models. It comes equipped with a brand new version of Ducati’s Traction Control (called the DTV EVO) which gives this Panigale a little something else: it’s driftable. Thanks to the brand new electronics package, the DTC EVO, revised algorithms and a Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit, you can drift this Panigale relatively safely. While the idea of drifting a superbike is somewhat ridiculous (although awesome to watch) the whole point of the system isn’t about putting the bike sideways around a track, it’s to make the bike behave more like a MotoGP machine. Thanks to the smart traction control intervention settings, the rear wheel can now spin at more precise levels, allowing for faster and safer cornering.

Apart from the unprecedented drift capabilities, the Anniversario is blessed with a stylish and MotoGP and WSBK inspired racing livery, complete with Ducati Anniversary themed gold wheels, and a gold tinted Akrapovic exhaust system. On top of that, the Ducati comes with a new steering head, a light weight lithium battery, and carbon fiber bits and pieces, along with a new rear shock.

We’ve already mentioned the DTC EVO package, but there’s more going on than the drift technology. The Panigale Anniversario has also been equipped with an all new Ducati Wheelie Control system, Bosch Cornering ABS, Engine Brake Control, Ohlins Smart EC Semi-Active suspension, and the famous Ducati Quick Shifter – which allows for clutchless gear shifting.

Finally, the Anniversario comes with racing kit consisting of a few key billet aluminum parts, a cover for the license plate holder – for when you remove it on track days, and an the full titanium Akrapovic race exhaust. Despite all of the huge upgrades, the Panigale is still powered by the usual 1299 Superquadro V-twin engine.

If you want to get your hands on one of these, you’d better act fast. There’s only going to be 500 of them, with each one engraved with its limited edition number on the top yoke. As for the cost? It’s a lot, with a $32,000 price tag, but that’s a small price to pay for what will be a highly sought after collectors item.
