50 photos
  • A paradigm shift for Ducati from a L-twin to a V4
  • Ducati calls it the ‘new symphony of all Italian performance and emotion.’
  • Will be powered by their all-new Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine
    Similar to the one running on their Desmosedici GP bike
  • With 214 hp and 91.5 lb-ft of torque
    this will be the most powerful bike in its class
  • It is the brand’s most technologically sophisticated and compact power-plant ever created
  • Add the all-titanium Akrapovič racing exhaust
    and you can boost the power to 226 hp
  • Has a ’twin-pulse’ firing sequence
    giving this Desmosedici Stradale its unique exhaust note
  • The new ‘Front Frame’ is more compact and lighter
  • The V4 tips the scale at just 430 lbs
    17 lbs more than the 1299 Panigale
  • That means, the power-weight ratio is 1:1
    and this is going to make the V4 trump everyone in the segment
  • Makes use of a 6-axis IMU from Ducati Corse
  • Debuting here are the controlled drift during braking and ABS Cornering
  • Then there are the usual electronics keeping the rider sane
    Riding Modes, Traction Control, Slide Control, Wheelie Control, Power Launch, Quick Shift, Quick Shift and Electronic Suspension
  • 43mm Showa Big Piston Fork (BPF) is seen at the front
  • Sachs steering dampers are top-of-the-line
  • Lightweight Brembo Stylema monobloc calipers debut here
  • New 5" full-TFT dashboard gets configured with a new interface
  • The V4 Panigale also comes in two special editions
    The Panigale V4 S and the Panigale V4 Speciale
  • The V4 S gets kitted with a higher spec suspension setup
    like the Öhlins NIX-30 forks, Öhlins TTX 36 shock absorber
  • Aluminum forged wheels and Lithium-ion battery
    helps keep the weight low
  • Panigale V4 Speciale are limited to just 1500 units
  • The Speciale also gets festooned with top-drawer kits
    Alcantara seats, dedicated handle grips, adjustable foot pegs, racing articulated levers, brake level protection, race spec Akrapovic exhaust system, racing screen and more
  • It also gets carbon-fiber parts
    front/rear mudguards, heel guard, cover swinging arm and Racing fuel tank cap
  • Pricing: Panigale V4 - $21,195; V4 S - $27,495; V4 Speciale - $39,995
