Connections to the main frame were added to the front of the upper casing and in the head of the rear bank. The combination of reduced fork stiffness and higher pre-loading gives better dive control during braking, resulting in easier, more intuitive turn-ins, especially for the less expert rider. The racing character of the dry clutch is an exciting added benefit for the most passionate Ducatistas. And the cycle repeats. The 70° offset of the crank pins combined with the 90° V-engine layout generates a firing order that Ducati has called "Twin Pulse" because it is as if the engine were reproducing the firing sequence of a twin cylinder. Aluminium single-sided swingarm, Gearbox - 6 speed with Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up / down EVO, Chain; Front sprocket 16; Rear sprocket 41, Desmosedici Stradale 90° V4, rearward-rotating crankshaft, 4 Desmodromically actuated valves per cylinder, Hydraulically controlled slipper and self-servo wet multiplate, Electronic fuel injection system. The Panigale V4 MY2020 features new, specially developed Ride by Wire system mappings with several torque delivery control settings. Using the data feed from the 6D IMU, this system keeps wheelies in check while maximizing acceleration easily and safely. A record power to weight ratio completed by the GP16 extreme aerodynamic design. Furthermore, the shorter crankshaft generates a smaller gyroscopic effect. This set of rims is approved for single-seat use only. The new Panigale V4 2020 is also equipped with the latest version of Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC EVO). Recommended for track sessions, ABS level 1 restricts ABS intervention to the front brake only, yet retains the Cornering function to allow super-hard braking up to and past the turn-in and recovery from any riding errors. Ample field of vision, shell reinforced with composite fibers, car-inspired visor opening, and ventilation optimized for maximum stability and efficiency at high speeds are just some of the unique characteristics of this top-of-the-range helmet. Developed thanks to the experience of Ducati Corse and the skillful productive care of Rizoma. Ducati and Ducati Corse engineers have crunched the feedback/data numbers from customers all over the world and Superbike World Championship events. The new Panigale V4 2020 is easier to ride and more performant both on the single lap and on the overall time. Greater downforce reduces both front wheel 'floating' at high speed and the tendency to wheel-up while giving a boost to stability during braking at the turn-in point and through the corner. VAT 05113870967, The Ducati Traction & Wheelie Control Evo 2 is now available for the Panigale V4 and Panigale V4 S, Plexiglas screen, nose fairing and larger lateral fairings, More efficient lateral vents for radiator through-air. The new Panigale V2 Is a beefy yet compact bike of essential design with clear-cut lines that convey power without compromising classic Ducati superbike flair. Its location is designed to reduce the size of the circuit as much as possible, improving its efficiency and optimising engine weight. The DSC's value is always visible on the instrument panel. REFINED SUSPENSIONS: The Panigale V4 is equipped with a 43 mm diameter Showa Big Piston Fork (BPF) that is fully adjustable in the compression and extension of the hydraulic brake and in the spring preload. Thanks to these modifications, the bike is easier to lay into the corner when you ease off the brakes, gets to the apex faster, soaks up any pits or ripples more effectively and behaves more neutrally out of the corner. DUCATI TRACTION CONTROL EVO (DTC EVO): The DTC EVO on the Panigale V4 is based on an algorithm that makes its interventions more precise and quick. It is no coincidence that it is the same solution used in the MotoGP Desmosedici engines. Magnesium occupies a prominent position among the lighter metal materials. This dynamic behaviour lets riders - against a small increase in steering torque that stems from the heightened stability - lower lap times as it reduces electronic control intervention, helping riders keep the throttle open longer and brake later, even when cornering has already begun. 43 mm chromed inner tubes, Fully adjustable Sachs unit. During the initial moving-off stage, as the rider modulates clutch release, DPL stabilises the engine at optimal revs according to the selected level. All these aspects have a positive impact on the bike's dynamics, helping to make it light and fast when changing directions. Riders can personalise parameters to suit their riding style or restore Ducati factory settings. Level 3 is intended for road use or in circumstances where there is little grip, ensuring the safest, most stable braking. The dashboard is dominated by the round 'virtual' rev counter on the right, marking a clean break with the past and drawing inspiration from high-end automotive production. Levels 2 and 1, instead, prioritise braking power and are better suited to sports riding on high-grip surfaces and racetracks. This optimises the distribution of weight, allows for the use of more extensive radiators and makes it possible to shift the swinging arm pivot forwards. The engine can deliver 214 hp at 13,000 rpm and a torque of 12.6 kgm at 10,000 rpm, making for awesome road riding. Made exclusively by Akrapovič with the Ducati experience. All these aspects have a positive impact on the bike's dynamics, helping to make it light and fast when changing directions. DTC, DWC, DSC or EBC control levels can be adjusted quickly via the left switchgear. On the front timing system the chain drives the intake camshaft, which in turn transmits motion to the exhaust via a pair of gear wheels (mixed chain-gear timing system). Like all the major players on the world stage ducati offers relatively street-friendly models in the 959 panigale and 959 panigale corse for this pair (...) In addition to the classic menu illustrating total mileage, Trip 1, Trip 2, consumption, average consumption, Trip Fuel, Trip Time, Average Speed, air temperature, Lap On/Off (in Track mode only), Player On/Off (in Road mode only), the new Panigale V4 2020 features another menu at bottom right, which can perform two functions: display/indication of parameters lined to the set Riding Mode or quick modification of DTC, DWC, EBC and DSC parameters. Once set, all the rider has to do is engage first gear and open the throttle. Foil performance has been improved thanks to the insertion of the longitudinally arranged strake and the winglet which 'insulates' the airflow over its surfaces. Automatic system disengagement occurs above the end-of-start speed, or once third gear is selected. The camshafts are controlled by two “silent” timing chains. The Ducati engine specialists have borrowed this technical solution from the racing models for the same reasons it was applied in the competitive world. In the timing diagram, the firings are situated at 0°, 90°, 290° and 380°. Selecting Level 2 lets riders drift into corners safely and enjoy enhanced sports riding performance. The V4 90° layout makes the engine extremely compact, allowing the centring of the masses and better integration into the bike. The new Panigale V4 2020 is powered by the 1,103 cm3 Desmosedici Stradale (banked 42° back from the horizontal), a MotoGP-derived 90° V4 with Desmodromic timing, a one-of-a-kind engine featuring a counter-rotating crankshaft and Twin Pulse firing order. In addition to interfacing with the 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and adapting intervention on the basis of wheelspin and lean angle, the software significantly improves out-of-the-corner power control thanks to a new 'predictive' strategy. The counter-rotating crankshaft makes it possible to compensate part of the gyroscopic effect produced by the wheels while riding, and this results in improved handling and a motorcycle that is more agile when changing direction. The Desmosedici Stradale has borrowed this technical solution to compensate for part of the gyroscopic effect produced by the wheels, making the bike more agile and precise when changing directions. All these aspects have a positive impact on the bike's dynamics, helping to make it light and fast when changing directions. In Sport mode, for example, the Slide by Brake function is engaged, allowing riders to drift into corners safely. The Aero Pack provides enhanced airflow protection and improves overall vehicle stability, enhancing confidence. The Stylema® callipers offer increased hydraulic performance thanks to their extreme rigidity, guaranteeing the system's quick response, reduced brake lever stroke and maximum flexibility. Weighing 64.5 kg, the Desmosedici Stradale is only 2 kg heavier than the 1,285 cc twin-cylinder Superquadro. Greater frame flexibility means less on-track tyre stress and improved front-end 'feel' at maximum lean angles. "DIAMOND" TANK: The plasticity of the ""diamond"" tank, a Ducati trademark, assists the rider at all stages of track driving. DDA + GPS is available as a Ducati Performance plug-and-play accessory. The built-in airbag, which activates in only 45 ms, protects the neck, shoulders, clavicle and the lower side of the chest. Due to inertia, the counter-rotating crankshaft generates a torque in the opposite direction, which thus tends to lower the front end thereby reducing the wheelie phenomenon, with also benefits acceleration. Its objective is to improve performance coming out of the corner by preventing slide angles that could otherwise be difficult to handle. 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. The Panigale V4 mounts Pirelli DIABLO™ Supercorsa SP tires (120/70 ZR17 at the front, 200/60 ZR 17 at the rear). Then there is an interval during which the engine does not generate drive torque until the firings 90° from each other in the two cylinders on the clutch side. 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. Each section of the system is manufactured in a special titanium alloy that is both lightweight and resistant to high temperatures, allowing for an overall reduction in the bike's weight. The Panigale V4 range features Brembo Stylema® monobloc calipers, developed out of the already high performance M50 calipers. Panigale V4 is the first mass-produced Ducati motorcycle to be equipped with a 4-cylinder engine, closely derived from the Desmosedici of the MotoGP. The one that drives the rear cylinders is situated on the left side of the engine and is driven by a gear that is part of the crankshaft. In addition to minimizing shift times, DQS EVO 2 allows clutchless down-changes, making hard braking more effective than ever. The counter-rotating crankshaft also generates a torque due to inertia that tends to lower the front end during acceleration, and the rear end when braking, thus reducing the wheelie phenomenon. Variable height intake funnels optimize cylinder filling at all rotation speeds with important benefits in terms of power and rideability. The latest version of the DIABLO™ Supercorsa SP in the 200/60 ZR 17 size, already widely used as slicks in the FIM Superbike World Championship, is in fact a generational leap in the field of racing tyre replicas. Like the DTC EVO, the DSC manages torque reductions by adjusting the opening of the throttle, reducing the advance firing and dropping injection rates. DQS EVO 2 with up/down function, developed for the Panigale V4, uses lean angle data to maximize bike stability when shifting gears through the bends. Thanks to these data and depending on the level selected by the user, DSC extends the use of the bike to all by providing improved assistance in extreme riding conditions. This 3-level system ensures lightning-fast starts, letting the rider focus on releasing the clutch. The throttle bodies of each cylinder bank are moved by a dedicated electric motor. The top in racing performance and protection. The new Ducati Traction Control EVO 2 (DTC EVO 2) strategy is an offshoot of the Ducati Desmosedici GP18 and is already employed on the Panigale V4 R and V4 R SBK. Made exclusively by Akrapovič with the Ducati experience. The Panigale V2 features the single-sided aluminium swingarm, the hallmark of every high-end sports Ducati. The use of the same bore as the Desmosedici GP engine means that all the fluid dynamics (valves, intake pipes, throttle bodies), which in fact make up the heart of the engine where the performance is generated are also very similar in the two drive units. The water pump, located in the V of the cylinders, is powered by a shaft driven by a cascade of gear wheels. This gives the rider access to next-level dynamic bike control, augmenting on-road safety and shortening track lap times. Track-dedicated RbW mapping aligns rider demand with delivered torque more closely, resulting in smoother, more predictable throttle response. Not only does it automatically display and record the new Panigale V4 2020 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. When racing on the track there are important benefits in ease of handling. DDA + GPS is available as a Ducati Performance plug-and-play accessory. 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. The counter-rotating crankshaft also generates a torque due to inertia that tends to lower the front end during acceleration, and the rear end when braking, thus reducing the wheelie phenomenon. Completing the chassis is the light magnesium front sub-frame and the shell-cast aluminum seat sub-frame (attached to the Front Frame at the top and bolted to the head of the rear cylinder bank below). Riders can, of course, personalize parameters to suit their riding style and subsequently restore Ducati factory settings. Electronic compression and rebound damping adjustment with Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 event-based mode. The result? The Ducati engine specialists have borrowed this technical solution from the racing models for the same reasons it was applied in the competitive world. Higher barycentre and increased chain pull angle. The combination of reduced fork stiffness and higher pre-loading gives better dive control during braking, resulting in easier, more intuitive turn-ins, especially for the less expert rider. Two different lay-outs are available: 'Track' highlights lap times and makes the rpm range used on tracks much more visible; 'Road', instead, replaces lap times with info on the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS) and the rpm scale is more appropriate for the rev ranges used on public highways. The EBC EVO system of the new Panigale V4 2020, optimised according to lean angle, monitors throttle body valve position, selected gear and Desmosedici Stradale crankshaft deceleration during aggressive braking and adjusts throttle aperture to balance out the torque forces applied to the tyre. At the rear there is a fully adjustable Sachs shock absorber, one side of which is attached to the Desmosedici Stradale engine via a forged aluminium bracket. Choose the model you prefer and contact the nearest dealer to have more information. Each component of the system was designed and tested to safely reach the rotation speeds the V4 is capable of achieving. Extent and duration of system operation are designed to ensure seamless shifting even during extreme track sessions; during down-shifts the system works in concert with the anti-patter clutch and Engine Brake Control (EBC). The 90° V layout of the cylinders creates a natural balancing of first-order forces without the need to resort to a balance shaft to eliminate the vibrations that notoriously entail increases in weight and power absorption. A Sachs steering damper completes the front-end package. The dual Brembo calipers, each mounting four 30 mm pistons, bite down on 330 mm discs to give exceptional braking power. All rights reserved. The ""Front Frame"" features a compact frontal structure weighing only 4 kg, secured directly to the upper semi-casing of the front bank and to the cylinder head of the V4's rear bank, the engine block also serving as a connection point for the rear suspension and pivot point for the single swinging arm. Adjustable in six positions, they allow the rider to find the position that best suits their build and riding style. The engine can deliver 214 hp at 13,000 rpm and a torque of 12.6 kgm at 10,000 rpm, making for awesome road riding. Full ride-by-wire elliptical throttle bodies. The "Twin Pulse" firing order, besides producing a unique exhaust sound unlike any other motorcycle, music to the ears of a true enthusiast, generates a type of power that was judged to be the best by the Ducati MotoGP riders as it generates important advantages at the power level and therefore the rideability of the motorcycle, especially when cornering and coming out of curves. Braking is aided by the ABS Cornering EVO system, which uses the ultra-light 9.1MP control unit. Adjustable in multiple positions, they allow the rider to find the position that best suits their build and riding style. Ducati Red with Dark Grey frame and black wheels, Desmosedici Stradale 90° V4, counter-rotating crankshaft, 4 Desmodromic timing, 4 valves per cylinder, liquid-cooled, Electronic fuel injection system. Rear - 3 spokes forged aluminum alloy 6 x 17 in. This particular firing order gives the V4 a sound that is quite similar to that of the Desmosedici MotoGP. Ducati Red with Dark Grey frame and black wheels. The chassis is completed by the lightweight front subframe made of magnesium and the chill-cast aluminium seat support, secured on the top to the ""Front Frame"" and at the bottom screwed onto the cylinder head of the rear bank. The new Panigale V4 2020 range features Brembo Stylema® monobloc calipers, developed out of the already high performance M50 calipers. The system acts in a different way for upshifts and downshifts, supplementing the advance firing and injection action during upshifts with the controlled opening of the throttle for downshifts, thanks to the full Ride-by-Wire system. For Ducati, the V4 layout at 90° is the utmost expression of sportiness for a motorcycle engine. Then there is an interval during which the engine does not generate drive torque until the firings 90° from each other in the two cylinders on the clutch side. The finishing and lines of this accessory are perfectly integrated into the racing look of the latest bike made at Borgo Panigale. Rear wheel lift detection during braking is on and the ABS Cornering function is set to maximize cornering performance. Designed to work in harmony with the rear tyre, the front tyre has undergone further development: every aspect of handling - from feedback to support solidity, 'safety feel' and grip loss predictability - has been optimised by creating a new front profile. The introduction of the 6D IMU has allowed Ducati Slide Control (DSC) - developed jointly with Ducati Corse - to be added to Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC EVO). To maximise mid-range torque - so important for the enjoyability of motorcycles on roads open to traffic - and to achieve torque and power at slower speeds, the engine has a larger displacement than the MotoGP version, specifically 1,103 cm³. On the sides, the stylish air vents of the new Panigale V4 2020 have been replaced by more efficient ones that increase air through-speeds on water and oil radiators by 6% and 16% respectively. This choice minimises timing absorption, benefiting performance and reliability. It delivers a power output of more than 155 kW (210 hp) at 13,000 rpm and a maximum torque of over 120 Nm (12.2 Kgm) from 8,750 to 12,250 rpm in the Euro 4 version. It is not by chance that in alloy form it is widely used in competitions. They use the standard DQS, which can be configured both as a traditional shift and as a reversed/racing shift. This 3-level system ensures lightning-fast starts, letting the rider focus on releasing the clutch. Furthermore, DQS EVO follows different logics to shift up and down. This optimizes the distribution of weight, allows for the use of more extensive radiators and makes it possible to shift the swinging arm pivot forwards.Its architecture also generates a natural balancing of first-order forces, without the gain in weight and loss of power of a balance shaft.
