Ducati has unveiled the 1199 Superleggera, the Italian brand’s new limited-production lightweight superbike. The build features titanium, magnesium and carbon fiber, resulting in what Ducati claims is “the highest power-to-weight ratio of any production motorcycle.” The power component comes courtesy of a 1198cc L-twin engine with four-valve cylinder heads, good for 200 horsepower at 11,500 rpm and 98.8 pound-feet of torque. Along with the lightweight materials, centered around a magnesium monocoque and carbon-fiber bodywork and rear sub-frame, there’s a lightweight lithium-ion battery and titanium exhaust. Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes and a World Superbike-spec drive chain all work to keep the weight down to less than 341 pounds. Finally, titanium bolts and components and a supplied track-only Race Kit for packs on an additional 5 horsepower while shedding another 5.5 pounds off the dry weight. The  2014 Ducati 1199 Superleggera is set for a production run of just 500, nearly 75 percent of which have already been spoken for.
