The Panigale V4 is the first production Ducati motorcycle to mount a 4-cylinder engine, derived directly from the MotoGP Desmosedici. It's a concentrate of Ducati technology, style and performance. Developed in close collaboration with Ducati Corse, this road bike is the closest thing possible to its MotoGP counterpart.
Powering the Panigale V4, the Desmosedici Stradale engine is a 1,103 cm³ 90° V4 with Desmodromic timing, delivering a maximum of 214 hp at 13,000 rpm, making the Panigale V4 the most powerful bike in the segment, yet easy to handle thanks to a torque of 12.6 Kgm at 10,000 rpm. Together with meticulous design and the use of light materials, the new frame keeps the kerb weight of the S down to 195 kg. This weight, combined with the 214 hp, means a power/weight ratio of 1.1 hp/kg, putting the Panigale V4 S at the top of the sport bike segment.
