PANIGALE V4 R

Electronics

Electronic track setup: the same as Superbikes.

Electronic engine strategy updates, new dashboard interface graphics, new Engine Brake Control EVO 2 software: everything to make the Panigale V4 R even faster and more exploitable in racing use. 

Explore the updates on electronics.  

The evolution of Power Modes

To make the Panigale V4 R 2023 even faster and more exploitable in racing use, the Power Mode logic already successfully implemented on the Panigale V4 and V4 S was adopted, of course with dedicated calibrations for the Desmosedici Stradale R engine. There are four engine strategies: Full, High, Medium, Low. 

Power Mode Full

Full Power Mode allows the engine to reach its full potential with torque curves without electronic filters, except for first gear. 

Power Mode High & Medium

A new Ride by Wire map management system with dedicated calibration for each of the six gears has been developed for the Medium and High power modes, ensuring that the rider always gets the optimum boost every time the throttle is opened. 

Power Mode Low

Power Mode Low, on the other hand, is designed for road riding or low-grip surfaces, limiting the bike's maximum power output to 160 hp and offering particularly smooth throttle response.  

New "Track Evo" Display

For immediate display of the information needed while riding on the track, the dashboard graphics have been modified, which differs by using an External LED, as is done on SBK motorcycles, for gear shift indication, reducing response time and improving the quality of feedback provided to the rider.

In the "Track Evo" display, the tachometer moves on a horizontal scale located at the topmost part of the dashboard, and the indication of the gear engaged is in the center of the screen. In the right area of the display are four differently coloured sectors, each dedicated to an electronic control (DTC, DWC, DSC, EBC). These sectors light up individually when the electronics are working on a particular parameter, remaining lit for as long as it takes the rider to identify which indicator has activated. This signaling mode makes it easier for the rider to figure out which control has actually been working to enable him or her to take more precise and timely action on selecting the optimum level and achieve better performance more quickly.  

The new Engine Brake Control EVO 2 software

The new Engine Brake Control EVO 2 software, adopted on the Panigale V4 R allows for improved stability, precision, direction during braking and corner entry, and allows the rider to more precisely define the best electronic setup on each circuit. 

The software features different gear-by-shift calibration on each of the three selectable levels. In the first phase of braking, when there is little load on the rear tire, the EBC EVO 2 delivers less engine brake, then increases it as you approach the center of the corner, where engine brake intervention makes the greatest contribution in slowing the bike and closing the line.  

This modification also makes it possible to reduce locking on the rear wheel during hard braking.

New strategy for Ducati Quick Shift

This new strategy enables smoother shifting at every degree of throttle opening.

In partialized throttle shifting, the strategy acts both by means of an injection cut of the previous strategy and with a reduction in advance, making the action smoother in road use thanks to the absence of engine shutdowns and re-starts.

In fully open throttle shifting, typical of track use, the DQS strategy is refined with an evolution of the torque restitution phase that guarantees more stability to the bike and a more homogeneous and therefore more profitable drive in the lap time.
