The 2020 Panigale V4 continues Ducati’s history of creating powerful, high-performance motorcycles on par with Japanese stalwarts.
The 2020 version of the Panigale V4 boosts performance even further and takes track riding to the next level for amateurs and pros alike.
A series of refinements make for an easier, more user-friendly, less fatiguing ride while simultaneously making the bike faster not just on individual laps but over entire timed sessions. The Aero Pack provides enhanced airflow protection and improves overall vehicle stability, enhancing confidence. The Front Frame, instead, modifies stiffness to give better front-end ‘feel’ at extreme lean angles.
The Panigale V4 is powered by the 1,103 cc Desmosedici Stradale (banked 42° back from the horizontal), a MotoGP-derived 90° V4 with Desmodromic timing, a one-of-a-kind engine featuring a counter-rotating crankshaft and Twin Pulse firing order. The engine can deliver 214 hp at 13,000 rpm and a torque of 12.6 kgm at 10,000 rpm.
The V4 90° layout makes the engine extremely compact, allowing the centring of the masses and better integration into the bike.
The aerodynamic, chassis, electronic control and Ride by Wire mapping changes made the new Panigale V4 2020 faster and easier to ride than the 2019 version.
