Pure racing adrenaline

The new Panigale V4 R embodies the maximum expression of Ducati values: style, sophistication, performance

It is the maximum expression of Ducati’s racing DNA, similar to a racing prototype as no other bike: a forward-looking model that accompanies the rider towards a dimension of advanced riding, made up of curves and straights that run incredibly fast, thanks to the electronics that, like an invisible, magical safety net, allows going beyond the limits.

It is designed to ensure a symphony of emotions, thanks to the new concept of performance: not only acceleration, braking ability and best lap time, but also safety and ease of riding, whatever the level of experience.

In short, pure racing adrenalin under control.

Data Sheet
Desmosedici Stradale R

The 1,103 cu. cm 90° V4 of the Panigale V4 is replaced by the 998 cu. cm Desmosedici Stradale R to comply with the displacement limits imposed by the WSBK championship. The reduction in displacement is obtained by keeping the bore size of 81 mm unchanged, whereas the stroke has been changed to 48.4 mm thanks to a new steel forged crankshaft that rotates on main bearing shells and maintains the 70° offset layout of the crank pins.

Performance data

The 998 cu. cm 90° V4 delivers 221 HP (162 kW) at 15,250 rpm and a torque of 112.4 Nm at 11,500 rpm (values referring to EU type-approval). The limiter is set to 16,000 rpm (16,500 rpm on sixth gear). By fitting the full-racing exhaust Ducati Performance by Akrapovič, the maximum power reaches 234 HP (174 kW) at 15,500 rpm and the torque reaches 119 Nm at 11,750 rpm.

Lightened components

The Desmosedici Stradale R features lightened internal components that contribute to reach 16,500 rpm in sixth gear.

Intake

The Desmosedici Stradale R engine breathes thanks to the oval throttle bodies with aerodynamic throttles and equivalent diameter increased by 4 mm (56 mm in total), connected to variable height intake funnels with dedicated lengths.

Larger windscreen, headlight fairing and side fairings

Compared to the Panigale V4, the new windscreen, higher and with greater incidence, improves the air protection of the rider in the fairing, with effect in particular on the helmet and the upper part of the shoulders.

Aerodynamic appendices

The Panigale V4 R is provided with aerodynamic appendices derived from those used on the GP16, thus with a greater efficiency compared to those currently used in the MotoGP.

Effects on riding

The aerodynamic appendices and the special design of the fairing increase the vertical load to the wheels (overall + 30 kg at 270 km/h). Increased load results in a reduction in the “floatation” of the front wheel at high speeds and of the wheelie tendency, and greater stability during braking, corner entry and cornering.

Side extractors

On the sides, the elegant air vents of the Panigale V4 are replaced by more efficient extractors, designed to manage the operating temperatures during the race of the more powerful engine that drives the competition Ducati Panigale V4 R. The extractors increase the speed at which the cooling air crosses the water and oil radiators by 6% and 16%, respectively.

“Front Frame”

The “Front Frame” of the Panigale V4 R stands out for the lightening on the machined side panels that allow to reach the stiffness target required by Ducati Corse and further reduce its weight.

Adjustable pivot

The modifications to the chassis are completed by the possibility of adjusting the height of the rear swinging arm pivot to 4 positions in steps of 2 mm. The adjustable pivot increases the adjustment possibilities to more precisely adapt the bike to the riding style and the type of track.

Öhlins mechanical suspensions

Considering its special use, almost exclusively on track, the Panigale V4 R is not provided with the Öhlins event-based, semi-active suspensions of the V4 S, but features professional mechanical units of the Swedish company

Electronic package

The Panigale V4 R is equipped with the latest generation electronic package, the one of the Panigale V4, that manages all riding phases, based on the use of the 6-axis inertial platform by Bosch (6D IMU – Inertial Measurement Unit), suitably reviewed in the logic of intervention to better support the professional riders.

TFT Instrumentation

The new Panigale V4 R uses the same cutting-edge, high resolution 5" full-TFT colour display (186.59 PPI - 800xRGBx480) as the Panigale V4. Graphics have been revised to reflect the introduction of new functions and the higher engine rev 'red zone'.

Ducati Lap Timer GPS (DLT GPS)

The Panigale V4 R is provided with a lap timer integrated in the instrument panel, with evolved functions with respect to the one available for the Panigale V4.

Pit Limiter (PIT)

The Pit Limiter makes its debut on the Panigale V4 R: once enabled, by pressing the proper key on the right-hand block, it self-limits the bike speed when riding in the pit lane. The speed limit can be changed through the specific menu from a minimum of 40 km/h to a maximum of 80 km/h.
