Vehicle Overview
Ducati Panigale V4 is now officially available in India for INR 20.53 Lakh. The motorcycle is one of its kind, pure sport oriented machine that uses an all new 1103cc, four cylinder engine producing 214 HP at 13000 rpm and 124 Nm at 10,000 rpm. The values are class leading as others around this segment stay well under 200 HP. Ducati not just made it more powerful but even its wet weight of 198 kg makes it effective against all others in a better way. It comes with Ducati safety pack and 330mm Brembo brakes at the front. Suspension duties are handled by Showa forks at front and Sachs mono-shock at the rear.NADucati 959 Panigale Corse is a race specific model for the standard variant, carrying nothing other than Ohlins suspension and Li-ion battery over the standard model. The inclusion of these two features makes the same a great option for professional spec racing as ride quality improves a lot with the added components. The same 955cc, twin cylinder engine is employed in Panigale Corse, producing nothing less than 157 HP at 10,500 rpm and 107.4 Nm of torque at 9000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Other important features on the motorcycle includes traction control, ABS, Pirelli tyres and Brembo sourced brakes.
