ABOUT THE BIKE

Be Wiser Ducati Panigale R Bike Specifications

The fully factory-supported Ducati Panigale R sees a return to the marque where Shane Byrne both claimed British Superbike Championships in the early 2000s. With a race-bred heritage, the bikes have come directly from Ducati Corse, the factory’s dedicated racing division. With the help of Shakey and Irwin the Panigale R is set to dominate on the track.
