Numbers are tough, and depending on where you leave a digit off, they can mean very different things. Such is the case with the price we reported on the Ducati 1199 Panigale RS13.

Available only to professional race teams for €134,900, and not €34,900 (Seriously, you people need to stop calling Ducati Corse thinking you can buy one — that’s just cray), the RS13 is the building block bike that you’ll see racing in superbike classes around the world, but most notably in WSBK with Carlos Checa onboard.

So again the take-home message here is you can’t buy the RS13, you probably can’t afford it, and don’t trust everything you read on the internet. Mea culpa.

    Is it just the upside down version that is 34k?

    That’s what it would look like if I rode it on a track…

    Ducati are still struggling with their version of upside-down forks, The logos have been reversed so they are recognizable in rear-view mirrors.

  • MajorTom

    Well, the good news is that the rider should be much quicker once the tires are actually on the track.

    what’s a come in a go!!!

    Looks like someone has turned their new €134,900 Ducati 1199 Panigale RS13 piggy bank upside down to see if there is any money is left in it.

    Did I convert this right to dollars? $180,000? If so, what a great race bike for the price.
