Ducati 1299 Superleggera
215bhp | 167kg | Seat height 830mm
At £72,000, and with every single one of the 500 sold out already, you’re probably too late, and too poor (like us) to get one – but it’s undoubtedly one of the bikes of the year. It’s the first factory production bike to be equipped with a carbon fibre frame, swingarm, subframe and wheels, and results in a gobsmacking kerb mass of just 167kg – or 156kg dry. It should be one of the most devastatingly effective superbike packages ever created.
