2021 Ducati Panigale V4
Another model-year is upon us, and constant as the North Star, the bikebuilder in Bologna has a fresh update package for its Panigale family with the new-for-2021 Panigale V4. Aesthetically, the body is unchanged, but there are enough tweaks under the hood to qualify the Panigale V4 as a “new” model, at least according to the bikebuilders in Bologna. The V4 powerplant is cleaner this year, so it comports to the EU-5 emissions requirements and rolls with more race-tuned electronic wizardry than ever before.
2020 - 2021 Ducati Panigale V2
Ducati headed into MY2020 with a revamped, low-displacement Panigale that the factory rebranded from the Panigale 959 to the Panigale V2. It’s a mixture of old and new with new body fairings over a modified monocoque frame, upgraded suspension components, and six-axis ride-quality controls to deliver extra safety on the road. Power comes from the Superquadro V-twin plant with over 150 ponies on tap to serve as the icing on the cake.
2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 / 950 S
It’s been four years since the last update to Ducati’s SuperSport 950 platform, and now it’s on the receiving end of a fairly major rework ahead of MY2021. Tuned-up fairings enclose a more emission-compliant engine along with beefed-up electronics to complete the package. The SuperSport comes in the base 950 package, but if you’re a bona fide pegdragger, the 950 S version takes things up a notch or three.
2020 Ducati Panigale Superleggera V4
Ducati unleashed to the world their most extreme version of their famed V4 R superbike: the V4 Superleggera. This limited-edition fantasy will come with multi-wings, 234 hp, carbon-fiber chassis and body, and an eye-watering price tag.
And guess what? This maniac will be a street-legal carbon-fiber rocket, ready to rip on the track and the streets around your million dollar mansion upstate. The story inside is an all-new thriller that is bound to scare the daylights off of anyone trying to come close to this beast.
No other machine on two-wheels can give you what this Superleggera does. This is a legit no-compromise hyperbike for the streets.
Ducati finally unleashed their most extreme production motorcycle till date: The Superleggera V4
The Superleggera V4 (Superlight V4) was previously dubbed as the ‘Project 1708’ and was going to be pushing all limits of engineering, design, and performance. Well, Ducati themselves have done one over and have given the world “the most powerful and technologically advanced motorcycle ever made by the Borgo Panigale manufacturer”.

Happy New year folks :) The 20 most exciting motorcycles being served up for 2020
2020 is a new decade, a new year for all of us to leap and move forward fearlessly. To re-invent and to make room for things which really matters, things that will uplift you physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Throw up your arms, wash off that alcohol stink, and go get yourself a new motorcycle. Works just the same.
Here’s our top twenty production motorcycles coming in 2020 that does all of that, and more.
2020 Ducati Panigale V4
The MY19 Panigale V4 was Ducati’s best-selling bike worldwide, and the factory looks to build on that success through a host of improvements ahead of the 2020 season. Ducati’s engineers struck a balance by increasing rideability and potentially laptimes to deliver more of what made the previous generation such a hit. Top-shelf electronics and a 200-plus horsepower engine complete the package, and it all comes wrapped in low-drag, windtunnel-tested bodywork for both performance and curb appeal.
2019 Ducati Panigale V4 S Corse
Ducati expands its Panigale lineup and replaces its “1299” with a new model that’s meant to take over as the new apex-predator – the Panigale V4 – and the new Panigale V4 S Corse builds on that platform with a race-worthy package. Not only does it closely resemble the MotoGP version with much the same look and equipment, it doubles down with the factory race team’s unmistakable colors in its unique livery. Lest there be any confusion on this point, let me be clear; this is not a wannabe/poser machine. It doesn’t waste any weight on the road-legal gear that’s rather superfluous on a racebike, and it’s intended for the closed-circuit and proper road-courses only. However, no expense was spared in the ride-control electronics department, and the robust suite makes this a veritable marvel on two wheels.
Tragedy At Pike’s Peak Hill Climb: Ducati Racer Carlin Dunne Dead At 36
In an attempt to secure his fifth King Of The Mountain title, Carlin Dunne of the Spider Grips Ducati race team fell yesterday a quarter mile from the finish line and succumbed to his injuries. Dunne was setting records on the Prototype Ducati Streetfighter V4 at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb when he died at age 36.
2017 - 2019 Ducati 1299 Panigale R FE
Ducati released the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition in 2017 with much celebration. This last edition of the 1299 Panigale R superbike comes laden with top-shelf electronics and racing livery in a finale for the twin-cylinder Superleggera-derived Superquadro engine.
2018 - 2019 Ducati Panigale V4
Ducati continued its Panigale legacy in 2018 with the V4 base model and its variants, the V4 S and the V4 Speciale. Dramatic as it may sound, the V4 family may well be the finest streetbikes at their price points, and that’s not just clever sales prose, it’s the troofus roofus. It isn’t just about the raw power — 214 horsepower from the base model V4/V4 S and 226 horsepower from the Special — because the electronics suite is nearly beyond compare with an absolute alphabet soup of acronyms for all the engine/brake/chassis-control features. That performance comes bundled with a sexy superbike visage that looks fast even when sitting still, and all for $21,195 for the base model. This is a weapon of mass seduction that is drawing down on the general riding public rather than an elite (read: rich) few.
2019 Ducati Panigale V4 R
If you’re into street-legal machines that would be equally comfortable on a closed-circuit track, Ducati has some good news for you in 2019 in the form of its top-drawer Panigale V4 R. The “V4 R” builds on the “V4 S” with a host of tweaks and improvements that were requested by none other than Ducati Corse, the factory’s own racing team. Additionally, steps were taken to conform to WSBK requirements with a new powerplant, among other things, so you could actually use the V4 R as a proper race bike. Even the electronics were on the receiving end of a tuneup to bring them more in line with the demands of professional riders to make this a truly special machine
The Panigale V4 has finally taken the first step of fulfilling its purpose
The preliminary two-day WorldSBK test at the world famous circuit of Jerez, Spain has been completed and the World SuperBike Championship teams have just begun getting grips of their new machines and expectations. But there was an air of desperation and anticipation when the sight of a new bike and the roar of a new engine was present at Jerez.
It was Ducati’s new fanboy, the Panigale V4. Wrapped in black, without many liveries, the V4 took 64 laps and six hours of testing at Jerez along with Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri testing out their Panigale Rs’ for the 2018 season. After seeing the performance and Ducati test rider, Lorenzo Zanetti’s lap-times, the Italians will probably enter the halo machine into the WSBK sooner than expected.
Ducati showcases a new look for their 2018 MotoGP season
It has been over a couple of months that the world witnessed the end of the 2017 MotoGP championship. But for many like me, excitement levels are even higher now with the teams busy putting the 2018 MotoGP bikes through their paces and testing their readiness for the opening race of the MotoGP in Qatar.
Showcasing their 2018 game-plan, Ducati introduced the Ducati Desmosedici GP18 prototype that comes with a fresh new flair. With the Italian brand’s most successful MotoGP campaign behind them, Ducati promises an exciting 2018 season at an event in front of a packed crowd of media, press, team sponsors and the factory riders Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo.
Get ready for a new dream sequence: The Ducati Panigale V4
The wait is finally over folks. Ducati has officially opened up a new phase in motorcycling by launching the new Panigale out to the world that will be powered by their all-new Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine. Similar to the one running on their Desmosedici GP bike and with 214 hp and 91.5 lb-ft of torque, this will be the most powerful bike in its class.
Christened as the Panigale V4, Ducati calls it the ‘new symphony of all Italian performance and emotion.’ The cover outside remains seemingly same and so does the name but the story inside is an all-new thriller that is bound to scare the daylights off of anyone trying even to come close to this beast.
