With the name “Superleggera”, which means super light in Italian, suggest this is the lightest superbike ever created. This is made possible as precious materials such as titanium, magnesium and carbon fibre, were used and combined- producing a superbike with the highest power-to-weight ratio of any production motorcycle in history. Apart of a very powerful 1.2L engine producing 200 BHP that propels the bike, superbike racing technology can be spotted in this 1199 Superleggera, including titanium Akrapovič race exhaust system, state-of-the-art Öhlins front and rear suspension, Brembo M50 Monobloc brakes, lightweight Ergal rear sprocket and World Superbike-spec 520 drive chain. With the weight of just 155 kg has made the 1199 Superleggera the lightest Superbike in the world.
