Ducati 1199 Panigale S Senna – For Brazil Only

10/08/2013 @ 4:40 pm, by Jensen Beeler18 COMMENTS


While all the talk for 2014 is about the Ducati 1199 Panigale R Superleggera (say that three times fast), the Bologna Brand has another version of the Panigale superbike for us to gawk at: the Ducati 1199 Panigale S Senna.

A limited edition model to commemorate the passing of F1 star Ayrton Senna, only 161 of these special edition Panigale S superbikes will be sold (one for each of Senna’s GP race starts), and they will only be available in Brazil.

Produced in accordance with the Senna Foundation, the Ducati 1199 Panigale S Senna features the same unique matte black bodywork and red wheels that Senna picked out for himself back in 1994, just ahead of his fateful race in Imola.

Ducati has a long tradition of creating “Senna” edition superbikes, dating back to the 1995 Ducati Superbike 916 Senna I, a similarly done-up Ducati Superbike 916SP. Making two more iterations in 1997 and 1998, Ducati is now renewing its homage to the great Brazilian F1 Champion.

Accordingly, each of the 161 motorcycles will come with a racing exhaust system, and will have its individual production number inscribed on the top fork clamp. Number 01/161 of the Ducati 1199 Panigale S Senna edition will be on display at the Ducati stand of the TWO WHEELS Motorcycle Show in Sao Paulo, alongside one of the original Ducati 916 Senna models.

    @smiler: yeah, especially the second and third ‘limited’ editions are special :-)

    For reference, the 916 Sennas were not SP’s. They had some nice up-spec components such as a rear Ohlins shock (which sometimes came on 916 Stradas anyway, depending on where/when it was sold), but was pretty much a base 916 with a paint job. Desirable nonetheless, both the 1199 and 916…

    Would go well with my MV F4 1000R Senna edition. Too bad it’s not coming to the states :( What a gorgeous looking machine. A sweet tribute to a legend!

  • Damn

    Failigale VERSION: senna, nicky,rossi,legera,bayliss, S, R, RS? NON of them works on track! dont make failing versions make a version with a frame

  • Damn Right

    LOL notice no one else is copying Fugati with these monocoque BS bikes that just look pretty. Nothing more.

  • Gutterslob

    You can’t ever go wrong with that colour scheme, though in my opinion, the Tamburini’s MV F4 750 Senna was better looking. Wonder why Honda never did a tie-up with Senna on their bikes, considering he drove and won his 3 world championships in Honda powered McLarens.

    Not to mention he helped design the suspension and set up for the NSX.

  • Confused

    Why does it say for sale only in Brazil when its listed in cycle trader in the states?
