New Panigale V4

Die Wissenschaft der Geschwindigkeit

Die Panigale V4 Modelljahr 2020 steigert die Performance noch weiter und bringt das Fahren für Amateure und Profis auf die nächste Stufe. 

Eine Reihe von Verbesserungen sorgen für eine leichtere, benutzerfreundlichere, weniger ermüdende Fahrt und machen gleichzeitig das Bike nicht nur auf einzelnen Runden, sondern auch über ganze Sessions hinweg schneller. Das Aero-Paket bietet eine verbesserte Aerodynamik und verbessert die Stabilität des gesamten Fahrzeugs, was das Vertrauen erhöht. Der vordere Rahmen hingegen verändert die Steifigkeit, um ein besseres Gefühl für das Vorderrad bei extremen Schräglagen zu erzeugen. 

Die Ingenieure von Ducati und Ducati Corse haben die Feedbacks/Datenzahlen von Kunden auf der ganzen Welt und den Superbike-Weltmeisterschafts-Events gesammelt. Ihre Analyse hat zu einer Reihe von Änderungen in den Bereichen Aerodynamik, Fahrwerk, elektronische Steuerung und Ride by Wire-Mapping geführt: Entwickelt, um die Stabilität und die Einfahrgeschwindigkeit in Kurven zu erhöhen, erleichtern diese Änderungen die Kurvenausfahrt und ermöglichen dem Fahrer eine bessere Kontrolle des Gases. Die S-Version verfügt über eine ereignisbasierte elektronische Steuerung von Öhlins, die das System Öhlins Smart EC (Electronic Control) der zweiten Generation nutzt, um das volle Potenzial der IMU 6D auszuschöpfen.

Aerodynamikpaket by Ducati Corse  

Entwickelt von Ducati Corse und dem Ducati Style Center, spiegelt das Aerodynamikpaket der Panigale V4 MY2020 das der Panigale 4V R wider. Das Ergebnis, eine Verkleidunge, die - im wahren Panigale-Stil - den offiziellen Ducati Superbike-Anforderungen vollständig entsprechen.

Wie in der MotoGP beinhaltete die aerodynamische Entwicklung eine Reihe von CFD-Vorstudien (Computational Fluid Dynamics), gefolgt von der Optimierung an einem Windkanalmodell in Orginalgröße.

Das Panigale V4 Aerodynamikpaket beinhaltet:

  • Plexiglasscheibe, Frontverkleidung und größere Seitenverkleidungen
  • Effizientere seitliche Lüftungsöffnungen für die Kühlerluftzufuhr
  • Seitliche Flügel

Die neue Plexiglasscheibe - höher und schräger - bietet einen besseren Luftstromschutz für den Fahrer, insbesondere im Helm- und Schulterbereich. Der Bildschirm arbeitet in Verbindung mit einer neuen Bugverkleidung, die höher und breiter (+15 mm pro Seite) in der Armschutzzone ist, um den arm- und schulterbedingten Widerstand auf den Geraden zu reduzieren.

Die seitlichen Verkleidungen wurden erheblich verbreitert (+38 mm pro Seite), mit dem Ziel, die Auswirkungen des Luftstroms auf den Fahrer zu reduzieren und die Effizienz des Tragflächenprofils zu maximieren.

An den Seiten wurden die stilvollen Lüftungsöffnungen des Panigale V4 durch effizientere ersetzt, die die Luftdurchflussgeschwindigkeiten an Wasser- und Ölkühlern um 6% bzw. 16% erhöhen.

Die Tragflächen orientieren sich an denen der GP16, die entwickelt wurden, bevor die Vorschriften zu Einschränkungen der Folienformen führten. Dadurch sind die Panigale V4-Profile noch effizienter als die derzeit in der MotoGP eingesetzten.

Diese monoplanen einteiligen Folien haben ein trapezförmiges Layout und ein Profil, das sich von der Wurzel bis zur Spitze verjüngt. Die Folienleistung wurde durch das Einsetzen des längs angeordneten Streifens und des Winglets verbessert, das den Luftstrom über seine Oberflächen "isoliert". Um die erforderliche Festigkeit und Steifigkeit zu gewährleisten, werden Panigale V4-Profile aus glasfaserverstärktem Thermoplast hergestellt.

In Abstimmung mit dem Verkleidungsdesign erhöhen die Flügel den Gesamtabtrieb (+30 kg bei 270 km/h). Größerer Abtrieb reduziert sowohl das "Schweben" des Vorderrads bei hoher Geschwindigkeit als auch die Tendenz zum Hochschieben und erhöht gleichzeitig die Stabilität beim Bremsen am Einlenkpunkt und durch die Kurve. 

Dieses dynamische Verhalten ermöglicht es dem Fahrer - gegen einen leichten Anstieg des Lenkmoments, der sich aus der erhöhten Stabilität ergibt -, die Rundenzeiten zu verkürzen, da es den Eingriff der elektronischen Steuerung reduziert und dem Fahrer hilft, das Gas länger offen zu halten und später zu bremsen, auch wenn die Kurvenfahrt bereits begonnen hat.

Neue Änderungen für Höchstleistungen   

Die Panigale V4 MY2020 verfügt über neue, speziell entwickelte Ride by Wire System-Mappings mit mehreren Einstellungen für den Drehmomentverlauf. Das Track-RbW-Mapping stimmt das abgegebene Drehmoment besser mit der Nachfrage des Fahrers ab, was zu einem sanfteren und kalkulierbareren Ansprechverhalten der Drosselklappe führt. Die neue Strategie zur Steuerung der Drehmomentabgabe ermöglicht es dem Fahrer, die gewünschte Drosselklappenöffnung durch die Kurven hindurch und aus ihnen heraus leichter zu stabilisieren. Zusätzlich variiert die Linearisierung der Drehmomentkurve in den Gängen I, II und III entsprechend dem gewählten Leistungsmodus, um den Stabilitätsverlust beim Beschleunigen zu minimieren.

MotoGP Performance

Die Desmosedici Stradale wurde entwickelt, um die Rennleistung mit allen Anforderungen für den Straßeneinsatz zu kombinieren. Um das Drehmoment im mittleren Drehzahlbereich zu maximieren - was für die Freude an Motorrädern auf befahrbaren Straßen so wichtig ist - und um Drehmoment und Leistung bei niedrigeren Drehzahlen zu erreichen, hat der Motor einen größeren Hubraum als die MotoGP-Version, nämlich 1.103 cm³. Er liefert eine Leistung von mehr als 155 kW (210 PS) bei 13.000 U/min und ein maximales Drehmoment von über 120 Nm (12,2 Kgm) von 8.750 bis 12.250 U/min in der Euro 4-Version.

Rennarchitektur: Straße und Rennstrecke

Die Bohrung von (81 mm) ist die gleiche wie beim Desmosedici GP-Motor und entspricht der maximalen Dimension, die das MotoGP-Reglement zulässt. Sie ist auch die höchste im Vierzylinder-Supersportbereich.

Der Hub (53,5 mm) ist länger als beim Desmosedici GP-Motor, um ein höheres Drehmoment auf offener Straße zu erreichen und die maximale Motordrehzahl zu reduzieren.

Die Verwendung der gleichen Bohrung wie beim Desmosedici GP-Motor bedeutet, dass die gesamte Fluiddynamik (Ventile, Ansaugrohre, Drosselklappen), die tatsächlich das Herzstück des Motors bildet, in dem die Leistung erzeugt wird, auch in den beiden Antriebseinheiten sehr ähnlich ist. 

Das V4 90° Layout macht den Motor extrem kompakt, was die Zentrierung der Massen und eine bessere Integration in das Fahrrad ermöglicht. Tatsächlich wurde die Desmosedici Stradale in das Fahrzeug eingesetzt, wobei die Vorderbank der Zylinder gegenüber der horizontalen Ebene um 42° nach hinten gedreht wurde, wie bei den Ducati-Motoren, die in der MotoGP konkurrieren. Dies optimiert die Gewichtsverteilung, ermöglicht den Einsatz umfangreicherer Kühler und ermöglicht es, den Schwenkarm nach vorne zu verschieben.

Seine Architektur erzeugt auch ein natürliches Gleichgewicht der Kräfte erster Ordnung, ohne die Gewichtszunahme und den Leistungsverlust einer Ausgleichswelle. 

Höhenvariable Einlauftrichter und Wartung

Höhenvariable Einlauftrichter optimieren die Zylinderbefüllung bei allen Drehzahlen und bieten wichtige Vorteile in Bezug auf Leistung und Fahrbarkeit. Das Kraftstoffversorgungssystem wird somit durch ovale Drosselklappenstutzen mit jeweils zwei Einspritzdüsen vervollständigt: eine unter der Drossel und eine über der Drossel. 

Ausgehend vom Desmosedici GP-Motor wurden die Fertigungstechnologien, die Materialien und die Nebenkomponenten so angepasst, dass sie die erforderliche Straßenhaltbarkeit erreichen, Standard-Wartungsintervalle von 24.000 km (Desmo Service), Euro-4-Homologation und hohe Produktionskapazität erreichen. 

V engine

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.

Compactness

Compared to a classic in-line four-cylinder, the lateral compactness of the V-engine allows greater centralisation of the masses and makes it possible to limit the weight on the front end of the bike. Furthermore, the shorter crankshaft generates a smaller gyroscopic effect. All these aspects have a positive impact on the bike's dynamics, helping to make it light and fast when changing directions.

Integration of engine and chassis

The optimal integration of engine and chassis is a fundamental concept behind every Ducati project. That is why the Desmosedici Stradale was developed to be mounted rotated backwards by 42°, like the Ducati MotoGP engines, to optimise weight distribution, use more extensive radiators and to shift the swinging arm pivot forwards as much as possible.

Desmodromic system

Like all Ducati engines, on the Desmosedici Stradale the design of the Desmodromic system is a key factor for obtaining top performance. The Desmodromic system in the Desmosedici Stradale uses components that have been completely redesigned and miniaturised to obtain very compact heads, achieving a level of sophistication, compactness and lightness never seen before on a Ducati bike.

Counter-rotating crankshaft

On normal motorcycles the crankshaft rotates in the same direction as the wheels. In contrast, in MotoGP the counter-rotating crankshaft rotates in the opposite direction. The Ducati engine specialists have borrowed this technical solution from the racing models for the same reasons it was applied in the competitive world. In fact, this solution has advantages related to two aspects of physics: the gyroscopic effect and inertia.

"Twin Pulse" firing order

The 70° offset of the crank pins combined with the 90° V-engine layout generates a firing order that Ducati has called "Twin Pulse" because it is as if the engine were reproducing the firing sequence of a twin cylinder. The peculiarity lies in the rapid firing of the two cylinders on the left side and then on the right side of the motorcycle. In the timing diagram, the firings are situated at 0°, 90°, 290° and 380°. This particular firing order gives the V4 a sound that is quite similar to that of the Desmosedici MotoGP.

Oval throttle bodies

Each throttle body has two injectors: a sub-butterfly one for low-load use and another above it that comes into play when maximum engine performance is required. The throttle bodies of each cylinder bank are moved by a dedicated electric motor. Thanks to the full Ride by Wire system, this allows complex electronic control strategies and modulation of engine 'feel' according to the selected riding mode.

Magnesium: precious alloy

Magnesium occupies a prominent position among the lighter metal materials. It is not by chance that in alloy form it is widely used in competitions. The Desmosedici Stradale uses magnesium alloy for numerous components, including head covers, oil sump, generator and clutch. A technical choice that also has a positive impact on the bike's look.

Aluminium: durability and lightness

The crankcases are made of aluminium using gravity die-casting and coupled with horizontal cut. The upper casing includes the four aluminium cylinder liners with nikasil coating that ensures low friction and protection against wear.

Weight

The collaboration with Ducati Corse has made it possible to achieve a compact, lightweight and high performance engine. Weighing 64.5 kg, the Desmosedici Stradale is only 2 kg heavier than the 1,285 cm³ twin-cylinder Superquadro.

Pistons

Pistons having a diameter of 81 mm churn in the barrels of the cylinders, with two piston rings, low friction, plus oil scraper ring. They are moulded in aluminium and utilise the "box in box" technology that makes it possible to contain the skirt height and the thickness under the piston crown thus reducing friction and inertia loads while maintaining the required durability and stiffness.

Compression ratio

The compression ratio is 14:1, a high value that once again reflects a design of competitive origin. The pistons are coupled to steel forged rods with a centre distance of 101.8 mm.

DQS Up & Down: changing gears like in a race

The perfect functionality of the six-speed gearbox is enhanced by the Ducati Quick Shift EVO (DQS EVO), which offers a fundamental evolution: changing gears with the throttle open. Furthermore, DQS EVO follows different logics to shift up and down. Integration with the slipper clutch and engine brake (Engine Brake Control) ensures the system's absolute effectiveness even on the track.

Slipper clutch

The wet clutch with progressive control optimally combines high torque drive and rider comfort. In competitive riding conditions, with sudden downshifts and strong engine braking, the slipper clutch counteracts the loss of stability of the rear end, offering excellent control while braking deep in corners.

Semi-dry casing lubrication

Like the MotoGP engines, the Desmosedici Stradale uses a semi-dry casing lubrication with delivery and recovery stages to ensure proper lubrication of all moving parts at all times.

Cooling system

The water pump, located in the V of the cylinders, is powered by a shaft driven by a cascade of gear wheels. Its location is designed to reduce the size of the circuit as much as possible, improving its efficiency and optimising engine weight.

Maintenance

Ultra-high performance notwithstanding, valve clearance inspection and adjustment (Desmo Service) intervals remain the same at 24,000 km, while general service intervals also remain unchanged at 12,000 km/12 months.

MY2020 Veränderungen

Die Einführung des Vorderrahmens hat größere Änderungen am Chassis der Panigale V4 MY2020 zur Folge. Nach Ducati Corse Vorgaben gebaut, zeichnet sich dieser durch ein spezielles Fahrwerks-Setup mit höherem Schwerpunkt, einem größeren Kettenzugwinkel und einer verbesserten Nutzung des Federwegs aus. Dank dieser Modifikationen ist es einfacher, das Bike in die Kurve zu legen, wenn man die Bremsen löst, man erreicht den Scheitelpunkt schneller, kann Bodenwellen effektiver aufnehmen und verhält sich neutraler aus der Kurve.

Front Frame with Ducati Corse specifications

The Front Frame is now the same as the one on the V4 R but differs slightly on account of the lighter, machined sides; these ensure attainment of the stiffness targets set by Ducati Corse for the SBK championship and reduce weight even further.

Greater frame flexibility means less on-track tyre stress and improved front-end 'feel' at maximum lean angles.

Completing the chassis is the light magnesium front sub-frame and the shell-cast aluminium seat sub-frame (attached to the Front Frame at the top and bolted to the head of the rear cylinder bank below).

Higher barycentre and increased chain pull angle

The fork mounting has been lowered 4 mm, while the suspension now has two link rods that are shorter by 5 mm. These changes have resulted in a 5 mm higher bike barycentre. The result? The bike is swifter at the drop-in and arrives at the apex faster.

A higher rear end also increases the chain pull angle: this results in an anti-squat effect and, therefore, greater bike stability during acceleration.

With a 24.5° rake and 100 mm trail, steering geometry remains unchanged.

Improved bike balance

The Panigale V4 is equipped with a 43 mm Showa Big Piston Fork (BPF) that provides fully adjustable spring pre-load and compression and rebound damping. The fork bodies house chrome sliders with Brembo radial caliper mountings. A Sachs steering damper completes the front-end package. At the rear there is a fully adjustable Sachs shock absorber, one side of which is attached to the Desmosedici Stradale engine via a forged aluminium bracket.

The Panigale V4 S, instead, mounts an Öhlins NIX-30 fork, an Öhlins TTX36 rear shock absorber and an Öhlins event-based steering damper. On this version suspension and steering damper are controlled by the second-generation Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 system which, among other things, features the new OBTi (Objective Based Tuning Interface).

On both versions, fork and single-sided swingarm have softer, less pre-loaded springs, resulting in more efficient use of suspension travel to even out pits and ripples on the asphalt. The combination of reduced fork stiffness and higher pre-loading gives better dive control during braking, resulting in easier, more intuitive turn-ins, especially for the less expert rider.

Wheels and tyres

While the Panigale V4 mounts cast aluminium 5-spoke wheels, the Panigale V4 S is equipped with 3-spoke forged aluminium alloy wheels. 

The Panigale V4 mounts Pirelli DIABLO™ Supercorsa SP tyres (120/70 ZR17 at the front, 200/60 ZR 17 at the rear). The latest version of the DIABLO™ Supercorsa SP tyre, in the 200/60 ZR 17 size already popular as a slick option in the FIM World Superbike Championship, is a racing replica milestone. 

Innovative rear tyre profiling maximises the contact patch at maximum lean-over and takes full advantage of the employed bi-compound design; the latter adopts the same SC2 compound (used on racing slicks) in the shoulder zone to provide race-grade grip, yet still guarantees the strength and versatility needed for road riding. 

Designed to work in harmony with the rear tyre, the front tyre has undergone further development: every aspect of handling - from feedback to support solidity, 'safety feel' and grip loss predictability - has been optimised by creating a new front profile. Lastly, the DIABLO™ Supercorsa SP tread features a 'flash' geometry intended to optimise track performance and reduce wear, plus narrower grooves designed to provide adequate support for stronger side forces. 

Braking system with Brembo Stylema® monobloc calipers

The Panigale V4 range features Brembo Stylema® monobloc calipers, developed out of the already high performance M50 calipers.

Stylema® calipers, machined from a solid aluminium alloy block, have lightening zones on the body and attachment bushings; compared to the M50, these zones make them visibly more compact and lighten each caliper by 70 g without affecting stiffness. Other improvements on the internal ventilation front have made for more consistent efficiency.

Because of their extreme stiffness, Stylema® calipers offer outstanding hydraulic efficiency; this means riders can count on excellent braking responsiveness, limited brake lever travel and first-rate 'feel'.

The dual Brembo calipers, each mounting four 30 mm pistons, bite down on 330 mm discs to give exceptional braking power. At the rear, instead, the system mounts a single 245 mm disc with a 2-piston caliper. Braking is aided by the ABS Cornering EVO system, which uses the ultra-light 9.1MP control unit.

Latest-generation electronic controls

The Panigale V4 features a latest-generation electronics package based on a 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (6D IMU) which instantly detects the bike's roll, yaw and pitch angles.

The electronics package oversees every aspect of the ride: some controls supervise start, acceleration and braking, others govern traction and others again lend a helping hand on corners and out-of-the-corner stretches. 

  • ABS Cornering EVO
  • Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2
  • Ducati Slide Control (DSC)
  • Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO
  • Ducati Power Launch (DPL)
  • Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) EVO 2
  • Engine Brake Control (EBC) EVO
  • Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES) EVO 

The operational parameters for each of these controls are associated by default with the three Panigale V4 Riding Modes. Riders can personalise parameters to suit their riding style or restore Ducati factory settings. DTC, DWC, DSC or EBC control levels can be adjusted quickly via the left switchgear.

Latest-generation TFT instrumentation

The Panigale V4 has a bright, high definition (186.59 PPI - 800xRGBx480) full-TFT 5” display with modern eye-catching graphics. Instrumentation development has prioritised readability and easy function access.

The dashboard is dominated by the round 'virtual' rev counter on the right, marking a clean break with the past and drawing inspiration from high-end automotive production. Desmosedici Stradale revs are displayed within a 1,000-15,000 rpm interval by a needle gauge. Movement of the latter is accompanied by a white trail that acts as a 'shift light', changing colour from white to orange and then red as the rev limit approaches.

Two different lay-outs are available: 'Track' highlights lap times and makes the rpm range used on tracks much more visible; 'Road', instead, replaces lap times with info on the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS) and the rpm scale is more appropriate for the rev ranges used on public highways. For improved readability, indications for (digital) top speed, selected Riding Mode and selected gear do not alter position when the selected lay-out is changed. 

In addition to the classic menu illustrating total mileage, Trip 1, Trip 2, consumption, average consumption, Trip Fuel, Trip Time, Average Speed, air temperature, Lap On/Off (in Track mode only), Player On/Off (in Road mode only), the Panigale V4 features another menu at bottom right, which can perform two functions: display/indication of parameters lined to the set Riding Mode or quick modification of DTC, DWC, EBC and DSC parameters. Lastly, Panigale V4 indicators are of the 'auto off' type: this means they switch off automatically after completing the turn or, should an indicator be tripped accidentally, switch off after the bike has travelled in a straight line for a certain distance (from 200 to 2000 metres depending on how fast the bike was going when the indicator was switched on).

ABS Cornering EVO

The ABS system, equipped with the Cornering function to allow ABS intervention even with the bike leaned over, has been radically upgraded to introduce new intervention logic and control types.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2

The new Ducati Traction Control EVO 2 (DTC EVO 2) strategy is an offshoot of the Ducati Desmosedici GP18 and is already employed on the Panigale V4 R and V4 R SBK.

Read more
Ducati Slide Control (DSC)

The introduction of the 6D IMU has allowed Ducati Slide Control (DSC) - developed jointly with Ducati Corse - to be added to Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC EVO).

Read more
Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO

The Panigale V4 is also equipped with the latest version of Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC EVO). Using the data feed from the 6D IMU, this system keeps wheelies in check while maximising acceleration easily and safely. DWC EVO provides more accurate wheelie readings; it thus exerts more precise control to ensure the bike responds faster to rider input.

Ducati Power Launch (DPL)

This 3-level system ensures lightning-fast starts, letting the rider focus on releasing the clutch. Once set, all the rider has to do is engage first gear and open the throttle.

Read more
Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) EVO 2

DQS EVO 2 with up/down function, developed for the Panigale V4, uses lean angle data to maximise bike stability when shifting gears through the bends.

Read more
Engine Brake Control (EBC) EVO

The EBC (Engine Brake Control) system was developed to help riders optimise bike stability under extreme turn-in conditions; it does so by balancing the forces applied to the rear tyre under severe Desmosedici Stradale engine braking conditions.

Read more
Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES) EVO

The S version comes with Öhlins event-based electronic control; this uses the second-generation Öhlins Smart EC (Electronic Control) system that, in addition to exploiting the full potential of the IMU 6D, features the new, more user-friendly OBTi (Objective Based Tuning Interface).

Exhaust systems

Complete titanium exhaust assembly. Made exclusively by Akrapovič with the Ducati experience. It is the most advanced racing assembly available on the market. Each section of the system is manufactured in a special titanium alloy that is both lightweight and resistant to high temperatures, allowing for an overall reduction in the bike's weight. Once installed on the bike, the exhaust dramatically increases the already excellent weight-topower ratio of the Panigale, for breathtaking accelerations and stretches. Thanks to its experience, Ducati Corse has developed the qualities of the motorcycle and exhaust to their maximum levels to create a perfect synergy, specifically for this exhaust, recalibrating the many and fundamental electronic aids: DTC, DWC, DPL and Slide on demand. 

Dry clutch kit

Just like in MotoGP, where the only thing that matters is utmost performance, the dry clutch is made available for the other V4 models (it comes standard on the Panigale V4 R).This is an STM EVO-SBK clutch made from billet aluminium with housing and 48-tooth plate pack. The plates are 9 driven and 9 lined with a diameter of 138 mm. When racing on the track there are important benefits in ease of handling. 

Specifically, the dry clutch ensures a more effective slipper function, even during the most aggressive downshifts, and greater fluidity during all "off-throttle" stages. In addition, the "mechanical" engine brake level can be customized by choosing a different secondary spring from those available from the catalogue. 

Other important advantages are the absence of resistance from the engine oil and cleaner oil since the plate wear dust is not conveyed into the lubrication circuit. The racing character of the dry clutch is an exciting added benefit for the most passionate Ducatistas.

Magnesium rims

The unmatched lightweight performance of forged magnesium meets style – a signature 9-spoke design that combines class, high performance and weight saving. This set of rims is approved for single-seat use only.

Adjustable rider footpegs in aluminium

Developed thanks to the experience of Ducati Corse and the skillful productive care of Rizoma. Made of high quality anodised aluminium alloy that maintains its original appearance over time. Adjustable in multiple positions, they allow the rider to find the position that best suits their build and riding style. Equipped with fold-away brake and gearchange pedals to minimise the risk of breakage in the event of a slip. They use the standard DQS, which can be configured both as a traditional shift and as a reversed/racing shift. An essential accessory for the most demanding riders.

Pair of handgrips 

Inspired by the racing world, these handgrips ensure an excellent grip in every riding situation. Built to avoid accidental slipping of the hand and to reduce the vibrations felt.

Carbon tank cover 

A splendid detail that embellishes the front of the new Panigale V4 tank in a way that only carbon fibre can. The finishing and lines of this accessory are perfectly integrated into the racing look of the latest bike made at Borgo Panigale.
