It’s the limited edition superbike that’s caught the eye of ardent bikers, motorcycle enthusiasts and the elite all over the world and now, courtesy of Next Bike Sdn Bhd (Ducati Malaysia), the Ducati 1199 Superleggera has made a grand appearance in Malaysia!
Present at the unveiling of the limited edition Ducati 1199 Superleggera were En Nik Danial Nik Mahmood, Vice President of NAZA Two Wheels Division and Mr. CW Juan, General Manager of Next Bike Sdn Bhd. The event was held at the Ducati store on Level 3 of Pavilion KL, where Malaysians will be able to catch a glimpse of this beauty up close from now till 23 January 2014.
Created without limits to inspire unlimited desire, the 1199 Superleggera produces more than 200hp yet weighs in at just 155kg, making it the lightest superbike ever created (for comparison, the Z250 which is 250cc bike is weighed at 168kg). The ideal combination of precious materials such as titanium, magnesium and carbon fibre set the highest power-to-weight ratio of any production motorcycle in history.
Only 500 units are being produced for sale worldwide, each with its own individual number inscribed on the top clamp. The exclusivity of this limited edition means Ducati will be very selective when it comes to determining worthy owners of this glorious machine. All customers with the desire to own a Ducati 1199 Superleggera will have to go through a thorough short-listing process before Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A. allocates the available models to specially chosen customers.
The price tag on the limited edition Ducati 1199 Superleggera is RM488,888 (net selling price).
“2014 brings continued expansion for Ducati Malaysia’s dealer network with another 4 new 3S centers approved by Ducati Motor Holdings to further strengthen the lifestyle that compliments ownership of these motorcycles which is essential to each and every one of the Ducatisti. More new exciting models are expected to be released this year with the first being introduced next month,” said Datuk Wira SM Faisal Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin, NAZA Group of Companies Joint Group Executive Chairman.
