Black on Black livery

The new colour scheme highlights the audacious character of the Panigale V2. The predominance of dark matt grey is broken up with glossy black elements, for a refined and attractive overall look. The livery is finished with the Panigale V2 logo and subtle red details on the tank, fairings and wheels. The Black on Black livery also brings a new-look seat featuring updated graphics and materials.


955 cc Superquadro, Euro 5 approved

The Superquadro is as enjoyable on the road as it is effective and responsive on track, delivering 155 hp at 10,750 rpm and torque of 104 Nm at 9000 rpm. Together with the commemorative Panigale V2 Bayliss, the Panigale V2 is the only twin in the Ducati Panigale range, which also includes the V4, V4 S, V4 SP 2 and V4 R versions.


Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV Corsa as standard

The Panigale V2 mounts Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV Corsa tyres as standard which, with their multi-compound technology, ensure maximum grip in all conditions, on both road and track.


Monocoque frame

The extensive fairing envelopes the refined monocoque frame and highlights the forms of the Superquadro twin. The ‘double layer’ fairing - which sees a main fairing extending upwards and embrace the tank and a secondary layer serving as an air vent - showcases the clean lines typical of Ducati sports bikes, elegant and unique.

Injectors and ducts

The Panigale V2 mounts two injectors per cylinder, one above and one below the throttle body, larger, and re-angled.
Despite having the same flow rate, the intake ducts lose less pressure than their predecessors, improving intake efficiency.

Compact silencer

The silencer boasts an internal layout that is better able to abate spikes in noise, back pressure remaining equal. The silencer also houses two larger enhanced-impregnation catalytic converters that allow compliance with Euro 5 emissions standards (in countries where Euro 5 applies).

90° V cylinders

The Panigale V2 engine acts as a stressed member of the frame. Set 90° apart, the cylinders are banked rearwards around the crankshaft axis, resulting in a 21° angle between front cylinder and horizontal plane.

Transmission involves a six-speed gearbox with the Ducati Quick Shift up/down EVO system and a wet clutch. The latter comes complete with an anti-patter and progressive self-servo mechanism.

Monocoque frame

Attached directly to the cylinder heads, the monocoque frame houses the steering head bearings, contained in two aluminium bushes. In addition to working as a frame, the monocoque also serves as an air-box. It contains not just the air filter but also the throttle bodies and the fuel circuit, complete with injectors, and is sealed off by the aluminium fuel tank bottom.

Front-end geometry

The front-end geometry has 24° of rake and 94 mm of trail, while the double-sided swingarm has been replaced with a sophisticated, fully die-cast aluminium single-sided swingarm.
The wheelbase is 1436 mm and the weight distribution is 52% at the front and 48% at the rear.


The Panigale V2 features the 43 mm Showa BPF fork at the front, fully adjustable in its spring pre-load, compression and rebound damping.
The Showa Big Piston Fork (BPF) considerably improves damping control at low speed, ensuring lower-pressure oil feed and reducing the amount of fluid needed for compression and rebound adjustment.

Wheels and tyres

The Panigale V2 has a 5-spoke, 3.5 inch wheel at the front and 5.5 inch wheel at the rear, both rolling on Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV Corsa tyres, specifically 120/70 ZR17 at the front and 180/60 ZR17 at the rear.
Pirelli's first multi-compound bike tyre, the Diablo Rosso IV Corsa combines racetrack performance with road versatility, making it ideal for the Panigale V2.

4.3” TFT display

Instrumentation on the Panigale V2 features a 4.3" TFT display. The graphics and interface facilitate menu browsing and setting adjustment while allowing more immediate identification of the selected Riding Mode.
The Riding Mode interface clearly and immediately shows any changes being made to the settings. This is done thanks to the explanatory graphics of the system being adjusted and a graduated scale indicating whether the modification is better suited to performance or vehicle safety/stability.

Electronic controls

The comprehensive and modern electronic equipment, based on the 6-axis inertial platform, leaves no doubt that the Panigale V2 possesses the DNA of a high-end sports bike.
The new electronics package raises active safety and dynamic control standards thanks to the ABS cornering function

Lights and indicators

The front headlight assembly is extremely compact thanks to the adoption of two small LED low beam / high beam modules. The Daytime Running Light and the upper rim of the dual headlight assembly create a 'browed' look

ABS Bosch Cornering EVO

The ABS system on the Panigale V2 features the cornering function (which keeps the ABS working even with the bike leaned over) and has the same intervention logic and control as on the V4.

Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO

The Panigale V2 is also equipped with the latest version of Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO. Using the data feed from the 6D IMU, this system keeps wheelies in check while maximising acceleration easily and safely.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2

The new Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2 strategy is an offshoot of the Ducati Desmosedici GP18.

Engine Brake Control (EBC) EVO

The EBC (Engine Brake Control) system was developed to help riders optimise bike stability under extreme turn-in conditions; it does so by balancing the forces applied to the rear tyre under severe engine-braking conditions.

Riding Mode

Riding Modes provide users with three different pre-set riding styles so that Panigale V2 performance can be adapted to rider, track/route and weather conditions.

Ducati Data Analyser + GPS (DDA+ GPS)

The Ducati Data Analyser + GPS (DDA + GPS), allows assessment of bike and rider performance by showing traces for specific data items.

Ducati Lap Timer GPS (DLT GPS)

The DLT GPS feature automatically records and saves lap times and displays them directly on the dashboard each time the bike crosses the finish line, the coordinates of which are set by pressing the flasher button.

Ducati Multimedia System (DMS)

The Panigale V2 can be used with the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS). This lets riders take incoming calls, select and listen to music or receive text messages via Bluetooth.
