An incredible, outrageous naked Ducati with and eye-catching looks and performance and yet with roadside manners.
The most popular superbike on the market, the Panigale V4, receives updates with content taken from the V4R. The Panigale V4 is now equipped with the aero pack, a new Front Frame, for better front-end 'feel' at extreme lean angles and new electronics, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2 and Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) EVO 2.
The Panigale family includes the introduction of the new Panigale V2. The twin-cylinder Panigale has a completely new look, increased maximum power of 155 hp at 10,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 104 Nm at 9,000 rpm (Euro 5 compliant).Other key Panigale V2 features include the single-sided swingarm and an exhaust with extremely compact under-engine silencer and single-side tail pipe.
New to the Multistrada range is the 1260 S Grand Tour, a special version of the 1260 S designed for those who want to eat up the miles without giving up on comfort.
This year’s Ducati stand will for the first time have a dedicated area highlighting Ducati’s racing success in British Superbikes this year. The racing area will feature Ducati’s two successful BSB teams, Oxford Racing Ducati and Be Wiser Ducati with their race bike on display in virtual garages. Adjacent to this there will be a celebration of 10 years of the Ducati TriOptions Cup, with the 2019 championship winning bike on display.
Also celebrating its anniversary is the legendary and iconic 916. It is 25 years since the bike was unveiled to a stunned public and to commemorate this historic event, Ducati will have an exhibition of 916, 996 and 998 models.
