Ducati Panigale V4

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.

V4 revolution

The Panigale V4 replaces the iconic 1299 at the top of the Ducati supersport range, doing so by enhancing performance and ridability so that riders of all skill levels can enjoy boundless fun and excitement. The Panigale V4 has been developed in close collaboration with Ducati Corse, drawing directly on know-how and technology from the racing world to provide a road bike that is the closest thing possible to its MotoGP counterpart.

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.

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.

Dry weight: 175kg (386lb)
 
Weight data refers to the dry weight of the motorcycle without battery, lubricants and coolants for liquid-cooled models.

Wet weight (KERB): 190.5kg(420lb)
 
Kerb weights indicate total bike weight with all operating consumable liquids and a fuel tank filled to 90% of capacity (as per EC standard 93/93).

Seat height: 830mm (32.68in)
Wheelbase: 1469mm (57.64in)
