Cool 2013 Ducati 1199R could be a game changer

146 12102013 ducati EICMA Panigale R zpsebc95f59

http://www.ducatinewstoday.com/2012/...lectric-power/

Next years Ducati 1199R will take the already über tech Panigale to new heights when the World Superbike homologation special will debut with the Ducati Energia™ Kinetic Energy Recovery system.

Many commentators, including this site, were puzzled when Ducati announced that they wouldn’t be racing their brand new Ducati 1199 Panigale in the 2012 World Superbike Championship. Instead the company decided to homologate the new bike for the FIM Superstock Cup this year meaning the 1198R needed to soldier on for one more year.

At the time we wondered whether the delay might be related to the finalization of the series rules for 2013 as Ducati were known to be most unhappy with the air restrictor that the 1198 must use in the championship.
It turns out to be much more complex than that as sources have revealed to us that the racing homologation version of the Panigale to be termed the 1199R will feature Ducati’s all new Energia kinetic energy recovery system (KERs) as seen on Formula 1 machines.

This radical new development will make the 1199 an even more formidable competitor on track as energy recovered during braking will accelerate a tiny flywheel that will be able to release a stunning thump of additional torque and acceleration as the bike exits the turn.

Although the concept is not new and used in automotive racing applications, the Ducati Energia system will mark the first use of such technology on two wheels. Porsche is expected to include the system in the next generation 911. This means the 1199R will continue the trend of ground breaking technology seen on the 2008 Ducati 1098R which introduced traction control to a production motorcycle for the first time.

With the launch of the Multistrada 1200, Diavel and now the Panigale, Ducati clearly has its sights set on being the leading motorcycle manufacturer when it comes to the implementation of cutting edge technology on two wheels. Details of the Ducati Energia system are hard to come by but we would expect the bike to debut at the 2012 Milan show this November. Certainly the company has been working on the concept for some considerable time judging by the Ducati Energia US trademark that has been filed.

Those who have ordered and are just taking delivery of their Ducati 1199S Panigale Tricolore will have just 12 months or so before their über Superbike will be surpassed by the Ducati 1199R Panigale Energia.

i always loved the design, it was the engine that i did not like, but with the new mapping it seems to have added some extra hp and now with this new technology and better geometry, might make this bike a top contender!

We did maybe 8 roll ons last Sunday between the 2010 S1000RR vs the 1199 tricolore and the HP4 with the new mapping from Ducati, the bike did pull pretty hard but i think as far as top speed, the bmws are stll a bit faster. The R version will have titanium connecting rods so should perform a little better, they have also changed the geometry a bit so the handling shoulb be improved, i wont really know until i test ride one whenever they come out.
