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).
