Ducati 1199 Panigale S Senna unveiled at Two Wheels Show in Brazil

Article by Anita Panait, on October 13, 2013

Italian bike maker Ducati has unveiled a for-Brazil-only Senna version of its 1199 Panigale S model at the Two Wheels Motorcycle Show in Sao Paulo. Ducati will build just 161 units of the limited edition series motorcycle -- signifying the total F1 Grand Prix raced by the Brazilian biking star Ayrton Senna. The legendary biker personally selected the special livery color during his visit to the Ducati site only a few weeks before his last race in Imola in 1994.

The color was later used for building the first series of 300 motorcycles designed to honor Senna in 1995. The first tribute was a 916SP finished in grey with red wheels – dubbed as “916 Senna I.” Two more versions -- the “916 Senna II” and “916 Senna III” – followed in 1997 and 1998, respectively. All three versions of the Ducati 916 Senna model were limited editions, making them a valuable item for collectors.

Ducati saw it fit to pay homage to Senna once by creating the 1199 Panigale S Senna, in close agreement with the Senna Foundation. Starting June 2014, the 1199 Panigale S Senna will don the special Senna colour scheme.

Each of the 161 motorcycles will be fitted with a racing exhaust system and will have a individual production number inscribed on the top fork clamp. Number 01/161 of the1199 Panigale S Senna will be displayed on the Ducati stand at the Two Wheels Motorcycle Show, alongside one of the original Ducati 916 Senna models. [source: Ducati]
