As for the racing world, where the only thing that matters is maximum performance, the Panigale V4 R is equipped with a dry clutch that offers significant advantages. Infact, the new Panigale V4 R is equipped with an STM EVO-SBK clutch made from billet aluminium with housing and 48-tooth plate pack.
The dry clutch guarantees important benefits in ease of handling: in particular, a more effective slipper function, even during the most aggressive downshifts, and greater fluidity during all "off-throttle" stages. Furthermore, there is the possibility of customising the "mechanical" engine brake level by choosing a different secondary.
Other significant benefits are the absence of resistance from the engine oil, and the presence of a cleaner oil: the plate wear dust is not conveyed into the lubrication circuit indeed.
The iconic, mechanical noise of the dry clutch should not be underestimated: an exciting and unique sound for the most passionate Ducatistas!
