Ducati expands the Panigale V4 family by introducing the new numbered Panigale V4 SP version, which certifies the return after many years of the initials “SP” (Sport Production) on the fairing of a Ducati super sports bike. 

Introduced for the first time on the legendary Ducati 851, this abbreviation identified the versions that formed the basis for the development of the racing bikes used in the Sport Production Championship, precursor of the current Superstock. 

Even today, in Ducati, the acronym "SP" is used to recognize a production bike with specific technical equipment that makes it faster on the track.

Full Tech Specs
Carbon rims

The carbon rims, 1.4 kg lighter than the forged aluminum ones, reduce rolling inertia, making the bike significantly more agile and lighter in direction changes, while the Brembo Stylema R® brake calipers guarantee a high braking power, as well as exceptional consistency of performance even during a long timed session without changes to the travel of the brake lever. The calipers are operated by a Brembo MCS radial pump which allows for quick adjustment of the braking feeling.

Dry clutch

The Desmosedici Stradale engine of the “SP” is equipped with a dry clutch, which is essential to be effective on the track when riding to the limit, and is coupled to a final drive with a 520 pitch chain, lighter than that of normal production.

Equipment

The equipment of the Panigale V4 SP is completed by the adjustable rider footpegs in billet aluminum that allow the rider to find the optimal position in the saddle, by the carbon front mudguard and by accessories that can be used on "track days", such as the open carbon clutch cover, caps for removing the license plate holder and mirrors, as well as the Ducati Data Analyzer + (DDA +) telemetry kit with GPS module that allows you to professionally analyse your performance on the track.

New Ducati Riding Mode strategy

The Panigale V4 SP features a new Riding Mode strategy that allows the rider to make quick comparisons between two different configurations on the track to define the best set-up. The Race Riding Mode has been split into two specific mappings for track use (Race A and Race B), now freely comparable in the individual parameters, which complement the already existing Sport and Street.

The Riding Modes allow you to choose between four different pre-set riding styles to offer the Panigale V4 SP behaviour that is perfectly adaptable to the rider, the type of track and the environmental conditions. Each Riding Mode is programmed to instantly change the character of the engine, the parameters of the electronic controls.

Riding Mode Race A - Race A riding mode in its default configuration was developed for experienced riders who want to exploit the full potential of the bike on the track. By selecting Race A, the rider can count on all the engine power with direct ride-by-wire response when the throttle is opened. Race A mode provides for an electronics setting aimed at achieving maximum performance on tracks with consistent asphalt and high grip, without decreasing the level of safety, with the ABS intervening only on the front wheel to offer maximum braking performance, but with the Cornering feature always active.

Riding Mode Race B - by selecting the Riding Mode Race B the rider can count on all the engine power but with reduced torque delivery in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear compared to Race A, in order to make the bike more manageable during long sessions on the track, on circuits with characteristics that favour cornering rather than strong acceleration or characterized by irregular or low-grip surfaces. The electronic controls are set up in such a way as to allow even less experienced riders an effective and spectacular riding style. 

Sport Riding Mode - Selecting Sport gives the rider 214 hp, with direct sport-style Ride by Wire throttle response and, on the S version, a sport style suspension set-up. Electronic control settings allow even less experienced riders to enjoy effective, spectacular handling. In Sport mode, for example, the Slide by Brake function is engaged, allowing riders to drift into corners safely. Rear wheel lift detection during braking is on and the ABS Cornering function is set to maximise cornering performance.

Street Riding Mode - Street Riding Mode is recommended when riding the Panigale V4 SP on the streets. As with Sport Riding Mode, this RM gives the rider 214 hp and progressive Ride by Wire throttle response.
