Intermot: Ducati unveil 1199RS13

The out-of-the-box World Superbike racer. There's just one catch.

POSSIBLY holding back any truly new models for EICMA, Ducati did present their new 1199RS.

Dubbed the 1199RS13, it's the bike World Superbike teams buy. Prepared for racing by Ducati Corse, it may look like an 1199, but there's a whole host of changes; from the obvious gas forks and carbon fairings, to the less obvious like the wiring. Despite what Ducati would have you believe, the parts on the 1199RS are quite a long way from the standard road bike.

No prices, but we'd expect it to cost upwards of £80,000.

The catch? You'll have to be a fully accredited World Superbike team to buy one.
