Correction: The article originally stated that the price for the RS13 was €34,900, when it is in fact €134,900. And for the love of god, don’t call Ducati Corse trying to buy one. They won’t sell a Rs13 to you.

Unless your name rhymes with Tarlos Techa, the chances of you owning a Ducati 1199 Panigale RS13 are non-existent. The professional racer-only version of the Ducati 1199 Panigale R, the Panigale RS13 is stripped of all the lights, mirrors, reflectors, and other assorted running gear that you would need to pass an inspection from the DOT, and becomes a motorcycle solely dedicated to the art of going fast.

Before any comparisons are made, it is important to note that the Ducati 1199 Panigale RS13 is not exactly what ends up on the starting grid on any given Sunday, but instead is the starting point for each racing team’s development program, which sees the end result often being a 200+ hp monster on two wheels.

Getting one isn’t cheap though, as the price tag is pegged at a cool €134,900 ($180,500). A hefty price increase over the street-going Panigale R, though with all the added suspension, brakes, wheels, etc that come with the RS13 race bike, the price seems somewhat reasonable — if you can say such a thing about a nearly $180,500 motorcycle.

    Wow!! That truely is a piece of art. Is that an airshifter under the rear Ohlins? That is one bad race ready Duc. Who wouldn’t have fun on that thing? I’d be nervous riding it but then again…..

    At last! A Duc that i can finally afford ! LOL.

    @Timbo:

    I think u r trolling but here goes anyways:

    That’s a Travel/Movement Sensor for the shock…i want to believe the correct name would a Potentiometer ?

    If u look closer/lower u’ll see what looks like a quick-shifter right behind the clutch slave cylinder.

    I”ll take one in Red please!!!!!! What a cool bike and thankfully atleast one manufacture has the b*lls to create basically a superstock bike ready to go just add the slicks.. Wait a minute bike comes with slick so i take it it’s not street legal, even better this beast belongs on the track..

    Back when the Canadian dollar was worth 0.63 USD the 999R cost almost $50,000. I think ducati sold every one they imported to Canada.
