How can one give a tribute to one of the best motorsport icon the world has ever seen? Well if you are Ducati, you build and dedicate a motorcycle on his name. And that’s what the Italian motorcycle manufacturer did at the ongoing 2013 Brazilian Motorcycle Show. As it unveiled the Ducati 1199 Panigale S Senna Limited Edition in memory of Ayrton Senna, renowned as one of the best Formula 1 driver the sport has ever seen and a man who is revered across Brazil for his sporting prowess and the humanitarian work he did. The special edition bike is a tribute to Senna by the Bologna based motorcycle manufacturer to mark his 20th death anniversary.

Senna by all accounts was himself a Ducatisti and was a big fan of the Italian motorcycle company; in fact he had visited the Bologna factory to spec his personal Ducati before his untimely death at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix when his Williams Formula 1 car hit the barriers at the Imola Circuit in Italy. The weapon of choice opted by Ducati for the particular edition is the top-of-the shelf 1199 Panigale S which is powered by a Desmodromic, liquid cooled, L-twin cylinder producing 198PS @ 10,750rpm and a torque figure of 132Nm @ 9,000rpm, well these kind of numbers would satisfy any biker on the power quotient. But being an ‘S’ variant, the bike has been loaded with every kind of electronic goodies like electronically adjustable Ohlins suspension, Ducati Quick Shift (DQS), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Ducati Data Analyzer (DDA) and 9ME ABS system.
