2014 Ducati 1199 Panigale S Senna - 3

While Ducati is busy making headlines launching of its Hyperstrada and Hypermotard by Ducati Corse rider Nicky Hayden yesterday evening and rumours about the Panigale 899 making its debut in the Asian region during the MotoGP here in Malaysia this weekend, elsewhere, specifically in Brazil, Ducati has revealed a special surprise at the Salao Duas Rodas motorcycle fair in Sao Paulo – The Ducati 1199 Panigale S Senna.

The famed formula 1 driver, Aryton Senna, is said to have personally chosen a special livery colour during his visit to the Ducati factory a few weeks before his last race at Imola in 1994, and its because of its 20th anniversary that Ducati has decided to pay homage once again, expressing its passionate respect for one of the most prestigious “Ducatisti” with another limited special edition.

Working close with the Senna Foundation, this latest offering is the fourth tribute bike for the famous F1 driver, after the 300 units limited run of the 916 Senna I in 1995, followed by a 916 Senna II in 1997 and, finally, a 916 Senna III in 1998.

This fourth tribute bike, based on the 1199 Panigale S, will only be limited to just 161 units, signifying the number of F1 Grand Prix raced by the Brazilian star, and will only be available in Brazil starting June next year. Apart from the special livery, the Ducati 1199 Panigale S Senna is equipped with a racing exhaust system and each of the 161 unit will bear an individual production number inscribed on the top fork clamp.
