USA Gets Its First Ducati 1299 Sperleggera! Here’s All About This Mad Bike

Ducati’s 1299 Superleggera has just been delivered to its first customer in the USA. Why is it such a big news? First off, it is the most extreme motorcycle Ducati makes, which we will discuss in detail in a bit. Second, it has bleeding-edge components onboard, making it unique among other limited-edition motorcycles. Lastly, it will see a production run of just 500 units. This means it has a big sticker price, which will only go up with time once it starts showing up at auctions. Here’s more about the Ducati 1299 Superleggera price in USA, specifications and other related details.

Just like every limited-edition product, the Ducati 1299 Superleggera has an astonishing price tag (for a motorcycle). However, even with that price tag, the bike was all sold out back when it was revealed at 2016 EICMA. So, unless somebody is selling it (and at factory sticker price), good luck finding one.
