Ducati Panigale V4

Ducati Panigale V4 is the flagship model of the Ducati supersport range, and for the last two consecutive years, the model is the world's best selling sports with a global market share of 25%. To make it more user friendly, fast, and comfortable, the Italian automaker brought in a series of refinements for the 2020 model year, which include

  • Panigale V4 and V4 S now come with an aerodynamics package taken from V4 R, which includes aerofoils, screen, nose fairing, and bigger lateral fairings with larger vents for better engine ventilation. 
  • The front frame is now designed according to Ducati Corse specifications which reduced its weight and provide more flexibility.

Other amazing features that put the Panigale V4 on top of the list are Smart EC 2.0 suspension system, Ohlins NIX-30 front fork and Ohlins TTX36 mono-shock, and Ohlins steering damper. Braking is done by Brembo with dual 320 mm discs and twin Stylema calipers on the front fork.
