Ducati's obsession with weight, power and exclusivity has just hit new heights with the release of the stunning 2017 Superleggera

Ducati’s past form in selling specials has given the Bolognian firm a new impetus to create the almost impossible, knowing that the wellheeled Ducatisti will fall over themselves in an attempt to own one, no matter the price. The original Superleggera (which translates, unsurprisingly, to super light) sold out in seconds, and before the cover had even been pulled from the svelte body of the new machine at a fancy shindig ahead of the Eicma show in Milan, Ducati had done all that it needed to – selling the 500 units to those targeted in a special email campaign. That’s £36m worth of business done in the blink of an eye – what other manufacturer can deliver results like these in the modern age?

And there we were thinking that the £54,000 original ‘Leggy was well specced. For a mere £72,000 investment (we can say ‘mere’ when the Honda RC213V-S costs £138,000 – nearly double the price of the Ducati) the 2017 version offers a machine dripping in exquisite components, boasting the use of magnificent materials and delivering jaw dropping performance– even in Euro4 guise.
