Hit Girl Edition Ducati 1199 Panigale Giveaway in Japan
Ducati Japan has produced a one-off purple 1199 Panigale to promote the movie “Kick Ass 2″. The sequel to the 2010′s “Kick Ass” opened in North America last August, but in Japan it opens Feb. 22.

Unfortunately, because it was produced for Japan, the 1199 is equipped with a rather unsightly exhaust to pass the country’s stringent noise restrictions.
Ignoring that carbon-fiber snorkel, the Panigale looks pretty good in purple, don’t you think?
