A new paradigm

It is called Panigale V4 and it marks a new and important chapter in Ducati's history, a "symphony" of performance and emotions that's 100% Italian. Panigale V4 is the first mass-produced Ducati motorcycle to be equipped with a 4-cylinder engine, closely derived from the Desmosedici of the MotoGP. The Panigale V4 range grows with the introduction of the new Panigale V4 S Corse: with an exclusive livery inspired the official colors of the Ducati Team MotoGP, it is an authentic celebration of the Ducati's racing spirit.

A new paradigm

The new Panigale V4 is the essence of sport motorcycling in its most exhilarating and pure form: redefined design, new engine, state-of-the-art chassis and innovative electronics: a concentrated blend of Ducati technology, style and performance. The new Panigale V4 S Corse is an authentic celebration of Ducati’s racing spirit, with an exclusive livery inspired to the official colours of the Ducati Team MotoGP.

The character has taken shape

The Ducati Style Centre gave shape to the character of the new Panigale V4 S Corse and its performance following what for Ducati are the canons of Italian sports elegance: large and soft surfaces interrupted by few bold marks. The result is a refined and simple bike, designed to maximise performance.

Sinfonia Italiana

The Panigale V4 Speciale completes the range and takes the concept of Italian sports bikes to an extreme. An exclusive and dedicated livery; Ducati Performance titanium racing exhaust by Akrapovic for 226 hp of power; components in carbon and aluminium worked from the solid. The new Panigale V4 Speciale is produced in a limited and numbered series of 1,500 motorcycles. Details that make the difference, unique and distinguished thanks to the three-colour livery and many dedicated technical elements, like the billet steering plate with screen-printed logo and progressive number, or the seat covered with precious Ultrasuede.

V4 di 90°: the racing soul

The new Desmosedici Stradale engine has been designed based on the experience gained in MotoGP. The typical approach used in competitions is found in the extraordinary power and torque values: the 90° V4 with a displacement of 1,103 cm³, the counter-rotating crankshaft and the 4 valves per cylinder with desmodromic distribution that reaches 214 hp (157.5 kW ) of maximum power at 13,000 rpm and 122 Nm (12.44 kgm) of maximum torque at 10,000 rpm.

Last generation electronics

The performance of the Desmosedici Stradale must always be easily manageable to achieve maximum racing results, optimising the energies and concentration of the rider. The new Panigale V4's control electronics use the six-axis inertial platform data (6D IMU) that make it possible to capture and record extensive amounts of information.

Safety

The new Panigale V4 sets new absolute performance benchmarks and raises vehicle safety and dynamics control standards with a state-of-the-art electronics package that maximises the potential offered by Bosch's six-axis inertial platform. Other original controls have also been introduced, like controlled slides during braking, ABS Cornering that acts only on the front brake with a setup that was designed specifically for track riding, and Quickshift Up & Down with a strategy that takes into account the lean angle.

Bosch EVO ABS Cornering

Bosch ABS, equipped with the “Cornering” feature, allows a modulation of the braking power also depending on the leaning angle.

Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC EVO)

The DTC EVO on the new Panigale V4 is based on an algorithm that makes its interventions more precise and quick.

Ducati Slide Control (DSC)

The introduction of the 6D IMU has made it possible to add Ducati Slide Control (DSC) to Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC EVO), developed in collaboration with Ducati Corse.

Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS EVO)

The DQS EVO with up/down function, fine tuned for the Panigale V4, compared to the previous 1299 system Panigale uses the lean angle information to maximise the motorcycle's stability during shift changes in corners.

Refined suspensions

The new Panigale V4 is equipped with a 43 mm diameter Showa Big Piston Fork (BPF) that is fully adjustable in the compression and extension of the hydraulic brake and in the spring preload.

Rims and tyres

While the new Panigale V4 mounts 3-spoke cast aluminium rims, the new Panigale V4 S and Panigale Speciale are equipped with 3-spoke aluminium alloy rims.

New braking system

The Panigale V4 range exclusively incorporates the brand new Brembo Stylema® monobloc callipers that represent the evolution of the already high performance M50 callipers.

Racing tank

The proximity of the new Panigale V4 to the racing world is underlined by the lightweight 16 litre aluminium tank that, as is the case with racing bikes, has a portion of the capacity situated under the rider's seat.

V4 90°

For Ducati, the V4 layout at 90° is the utmost expression of sportiness for a motorcycle engine. It is no coincidence that it is the same solution used in the MotoGP Desmosedici engines.

Counter-rotating crankshaft

On street bikes the crankshaft rotates in the same direction as the wheels. In contrast, in MotoGP the counter-rotating crankshaft that rotates in the opposite direction is commonly used. The Desmosedici Stradale borrowed this technical solution from MotoGP.

"Twin Pulse" firing order

The crank pins, offset by 70° like on the Desmosedici GP, require a "Twin Pulse" firing order to generate power that is easy to handle and optimise traction when coming out of curves ("Big Bang" effect). Thanks to this firing order the Desmosedici Stradale makes a unique and distinctive sound.

Desmodromic system

On the Desmosedici Stradale the design of the desmodromic system is a key factor for obtaining top performance.

Innovative "Front Frame"

The new "Front Frame", left visible for all to see, becomes an integral part of the motorcycle giving it a tight fairing, practically custom tailored.

"Double Layer" fairing

Simplicity and integration inspired the designers for the fairing with a "double layer" solution: a main outer part with a reduced longitudinal extension, and a secondary part that functions as an air extractor for the radiator.

"Diamond" tank

The plasticity of the "diamond" tank, a Ducati trademark, assists the rider at all stages of track driving.

Sleek tail guard

The tail guard of the single-seater version is all one piece, to emphasise the "ready-to-race" character of the bike.
