If you’re a fan of racing, Ducati’s ‘R’ models hold a special place in your heart. Often designated for superbike homologation builds, ‘R’ models raise the bar for what is possible on the street. Ducati has had several R models to satisfy WSBK regulations over the years, each one more savage than the last. The 1199R offers titanium engine internals to withstand increased abuse, and lightweight components throughout to help maximize the ponies. Superbike spec Ohlins suspension and Brembo brakes do their best to tame the 1198cc L-twin, if you can keep the front wheel down.
This 2013 Ducati 1199R is located in Santa Clarita. 3,750 miles might seem high for such a recent special edition, but you could enjoy this bike without fear of adding miles to a sub-1000 mile example. Service records are key for a collectible such as this, and they are included. The listing is pretty sparse beyond that. Lots of extras are mentioned, but not specified. Are special editions worth the premiums over their ‘regular’ counterparts to you?
