Panigale V4

Electronics

The Panigale V4 features a latest-generation electronics package based on a 6-axis inertial platform which instantly detects the bike's roll, yaw and pitch angles.

The electronic package includes controls that manage all the riding phases, whose operating parameters are connected by default to the 4 Riding Modes available (Race A, Race B, Sport, Street).
All of the Panigale V4's functions are managed via a high resolution 5" full-TFT color display.

ABS Cornering EVO

Cornering ABS EVO can be set at three different levels to fully satisfy rider needs on road or racetrack, even under critical low-grip conditions. Level 3 is intended for road use or in circumstances where there is little grip, ensuring the safest, most stable braking....

Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 3

The DTC EVO 3 is derived from the Ducati Corse experience and has a refined strategy that intervenes in the mid-corner throttle reopening phase to manage the Desmosedici Stradale's clearance recovery in a gentle way, modulating the torque delivered and avoiding the peak that can be to have game recovery completed so as to make acceleration out of corners even easier and more predictable...

Ducati Slide Control (DSC)

This system assists riders by controlling the torque delivered by the Desmosedici Stradale engine according to slide angle. Its purpose is to improve-out-of-the-bend performance by preventing slide angles that would otherwise be difficult to handle...

Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO

The Panigale V4 is also equipped with the latest version of Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC EVO). Using the data feed from the inertial platform, this system keeps wheelies under control while maximising acceleration easily and safely. DWC EVO provides more accurate wheelie readings; it thus exerts more precise control to ensure the bike responds faster to rider input.

Ducati Power Launch (DPL)

This 3-level system ensures lightning-fast starts, letting the rider focus on releasing the clutch. Once set, all the rider has to do is engage first gear and open the throttle. During the initial moving-off stage, as the rider modulates clutch release, DPL stabilises the Desmosedici Stradale engine at optimal revs according to the selected level. In the second stage, when the clutch has been fully released, DPL controls torque delivery to maximise acceleration on the basis of the selected level...

Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) EVO 2

DQS EVO 2 with up/down function, developed for the Panigale V4, uses lean angle data to maximise bike stability when shifting gears through the bends. In addition to minimising shift times, DQS EVO 2 allows clutchless down-shifts, making hard braking more effective than ever.

Engine Brake Control (EBC) EVO

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

Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES) EVO

Electronic suspension offers a choice between manual “Fixed” mode - which allows for “virtual-click” manual adjustment (32 clicks between fully open and fully closed for the suspension and 10 for the shock absorber) of compression, rebound and steering damping - and automatic “Dynamic” mode...

Only the best on road and on track

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...

Read more
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...

Riding Mode Sport

Selecting Sport gives the rider 210 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 maximize cornering performance.

Riding Mode Street

Street Riding Mode is recommended when riding the Panigale V4 on the streets. As with Sport Riding Mode, this RM gives the rider 150 hp and progressive Ride by Wire throttle response; on the Panigale V4 S version it features a suspension set-up that is well suited to bumpy or pitted roads. Electronic control settings ensure grip and stability to maximize safety.

Full control of your performance

The improved dashboard features a new distribution of the functions of the external lights. Ducati technicians introduce an additional Info Mode, developed keeping in mind the MotoGP riders suggestions and named “Track Evo”, an option added to the existing Road and Track settings.

 In the “Track Evo” screen, the tachometer moves on a horizontal scale positioned in the highest part of the instrument, which is the most visible, and the indication of the gear engaged is in the center of the screen. On the right area there are four sectors of different colours, each dedicated to an electronic control.

These sectors light up individually when the electronics are working on a certain parameter, remaining on for the time necessary for the rider to identify which indicator is activated. This signaling mode facilitates the user’s task in understanding the control that has actually worked to allow him to intervene more precisely and punctually on the choice of the optimal level and to obtain better performance more quickly. The left sector completes the information with the stopwatch, the number of laps completed and the speed. 

Ducati Lap Timer 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. If a lap time is the best of the current track session, the Best Lap function causes it to flash for 5 seconds. At every lap - for a total of 15 consecutive laps - DLT GPS records lap time, maximum rpm and maximum speed; the information can be called up from the relevant menu. DLT is available as a Ducati Performance plug- and-play accessory.

Ducati Data Analyser + GPS

The Ducati Data Analyser + GPS (DDA + GPS) allows assessment of bike and rider performance by showing traces for specific data items. DDA + GPS is a vital on-track performance monitoring tool. Not only does it automatically display and record Panigale V4 lap times, it also saves other data traces such as throttle opening, bike speed, engine rpm, selected gear, engine temperature, distance travelled, rpm and DTC. DDA + GPS is available as a Ducati Performance plug-and-play accessory.

Ducati Multimedia System

Panigale V4 is ready for the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS). This lets riders take incoming calls, select and listen to music or receive text messages via a Bluetooth link. When the rider mounts the motorcycle the smartphone automatically connects to the bike via Bluetooth, letting the rider control the main multimedia functions. The TFT display shows the music being played, the new text message icon or caller's name. Phone call audio and music are transmitted to the helmet earpieces. The DMS is available as an accessory throughout the Panigale V4 range.
