2018 Ducati Panigale V4

2018 Ducati Panigale V4


With the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition, Ducati said goodbye to its run of 2 cylinder super bikes. It was a long and storied history for the Italian manufacturer, but 2 cylinders against bikes with 4 cylinders is a no-win, so Ducati moved on. Modeled as closely as possible (while still being a road bike) on their racing MotoGP racing bike, the Panigale V4 is their first mass-produced 4 cylinder on offer.

The new Desmosedici Stradale engine features a 90º V4 layout and puts out 214 max horsepower at 13,000 rpm. They updated the suspension with a Showa Big Piston Fork, added a new Brembo braking system and came up with a double layered fairing with the outer layer upping the aerodynamics and the inner layer feeding air to the radiator to help cool things off. It all sits atop 3-spoke cast aluminium rims and is very ready to ride. Learn more at Ducati.
