To maximize the Ducati Panigale V2 engine’s power while ensuring top-notch engine protection, Team Racing World SSP turned to Sprint Filter’s advanced R127S F1-85-SBK air filter.

Key Advantages

This direct-frame mounting eliminated the cumbersome original air filter fastening structure. Furthermore, this adaptation increased the filtering mass surface area by an incredible 210%. This larger surface area efficiently distributes the airflow to the throttle body of the engine, contributing significantly to the bike’s powerful performance.


Nicolò Bulega’s Supersport World Championship victory stands as a testament not just to his extraordinary skill, but also to the groundbreaking technology brought to the racing world by Sprint Filter. Sprint Filter is honored to contribute to such a monumental win and looks forward to pushing the boundaries of air filter technology in the years to come.
