To celebrate the 90 years in which Ducati has grown to be a luxury manufacturer of sport motorcycles and technology, the new 1299Ppanigale S Anniversario aims to set a new performance benchmark. Complementing and enhancing the Panigale’s award-winning design, the 1299 S Anniversario features unique graphics to commemorate 90 years of Ducati’s passion and performance. Dynamic and distinctly racing-inspired, the stunning graphics include also special gold-coloured Marchesini forged aluminium wheels.

Each motorcycle features a special, machined billet aluminium top triple clamp, on which its name and number are laser-inscribed to guarantee exclusivity. The colors of the 1299 Panigale S Anniversario take their influence from those of traditional Ducati race bikes. The white, black and red fairing are a noticeable match with the Marchesini gold wheel rims.
