Ducati Panigale V2

The  twin-cylinder  Panigale  has  been  given  a  thorough  makeover.  Renamed  the  Panigale  V2,  it  takes a totally new design, it features sophisticated electronics based on a 6-axis inertial platform and, thanks to a more comfortable rider  seat and the suspension  set-up,  offers  better  yet  safer  sports  performance while making  road  riding  more  enjoyable  and  user-friendly  than  ever.  The  name  informs  Ducati twin-cylinder enthusiasts that the bike is powered by the 955 cm³ Superquadro.

The  extensive  fairing  gently  embraces  the monocoque  frame,  highlighting  the  compactness  of  the Superquadro twin-cylinder engine to create a bike that is visually more compressed and less intimidating than the Panigale V4. Another key part of the Panigale V2 look is the single-sided swingarm and the new exhaust with extremely compact  under-engine  silencer  and  single-side  end  pipe.  The  clean  lines  typical  of  Ducati  superbikes  are enhanced by the traditional Ducati Red livery and black wheels.

The Panigale V2 thanks to chassis modifications combined with the new Pirelli Diablo Rosso CorsaII tires is more intuitive, agile and fun to ride, moreover a fine-tuning of the suspension hydraulic setting improve comfort in road use. Now Euro 5 compliant, the 955 cm³ Superquadro engine delivers even more power (+5 hp) and torque (+2 Nm). With a maximum power of 155 hp at 10,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 104 Nm at 9,000 rpm, the Superquadro Euro 5 remains true to its nature: as user-friendly on the road as  it is powerful yet always under control on  the  track. Valve  play checks every  24,000  km and  services  every  12,000  km  or  12 months.

Not  even  the  comprehensive,  cutting-edge  electronics  package -based  on  the  6-axis  inertial  platform -leaves  the  rider  in  any  doubt  that  the  Panigale  V2  has  thoroughbred  sports  blood  running  through  its veins. The  new  electronics  package  raises  active  safety  and  dynamic  control  standards  by  adding the cornering  function  to  the  ABS,  upgrading  the  quickshift  so  it  now  covers  down-changes and  including traction control, engine brake control and wheelie control.

As you'd expect, all controls are incorporated  in the  three  Riding  Modes (Race, Sport,  Street) and can be adjusted  via  the  new  4.3"  colour  TFT  dashboard.  Featuring  a  user-friendly  graphic  interface  browsing menus, adjusting settings and identifying the selected Riding Mode couldn't be easier.
