We have already shown you photos of the Ducati 1199 Panigale RS12, the 2012-spec version of the race bike that is only available to motorcycle race teams. For 2013, not too much about the race package has changed (note the Ducati Test Team livery that the 2013 Ducati Superbike 848 EVO Corse SE wears as well), but honestly…we will use any excuse possible to post up pictures of this tasty machine.

Not to be confused with the Ducati 1199 Panigale R, which will debut at EICMA and be available to mere mortals, the Ducati 1199 Panigale RS13 is not a street bike, and unless your name is Carlos Checa, you’re unlikely to get your hands on one. Continue drooling after the jump.

    I would change my name to Carlos Checa for that.

    Is it okay if I change my name to Carlos Checa too?

  • The Real Carlos Checa

    My name is Checa. Carlos Checa.

    There can be only ONE!

    What is Count Dracula doing with my bike!??!!? …Now where the hell did I put that holy water?!?

  • justadude

    No way in hell I could ever reach that bikes potential, but I too would change my name to Carlos Checa to get my hands on one.

    @ Jimmy Smith JR Too funny man, too funny. LOL.

  • I’m sorry the but styling and color scheme is horrendous. Carbon fiber all in your face and a big ol’ TERMI sticker popping out at you. Different color finished metals everywhere.. just blegh.

  • Gutterslob

    Pretty sure you would get one if you changed your name to Troy Bayliss as well.

    @Jimmy Smith JR
    Ah, that explains why the bike got all the red sucked out of it.

  • DucMan

    It’s a race bike, color scheme and big ol’ stickers will come from the sponsors

  • What DucMan said…

  • SuryaD

    Not a big fan of the aluminum tank and the huge misshapen chunk of carbon fiber which can only be the exhaust guard but other than that…bring out the R. I am hoping in 2 years when my Aprilia Factory RSV4 is paid off I will be able to snag an 1199R!
