The Sky-high

Ducati recently launched the Ducati 1299 Superleggera. As soon as this Italian monster barged into the automotive industry, it gained the rightful title of the world’s lightest mass-produced bike, with the most powerful twin-cylinder engine. It’s priced at a jaw-dropping price of Rs. 1.12 crore. The most expensive bike currently on sale!

This bike is totally worth that sky-high price, as it uses carbon fibre with a monocoque frame, swingarm and has jaw-dropping wheels made of ultra-strong and light material. The carbon fibre with aluminium alloy inserts actually makes the bike stoop down to 40% of its weight. The screws are not far behind, they’re made of titanium. All these combined, bring the bike to a whopping 167 kg!
