V4 revolution

The Panigale V4 replaces the iconic 1299 at the top of the Ducati supersport range, doing so by enhancing performance and ridability so that riders of all skill levels can enjoy boundless fun and excitement. The Panigale V4 has been developed in close collaboration with Ducati Corse, drawing directly on know-how and technology from the racing world to provide a road bike that is the closest thing possible to its MotoGP counterpart.

V4 CONCEPT - A new paradigm

The new Panigale V4 is the essence of sport motorcycling in its most exhilarating and pure form: redefined design, new engine, state-of-the-art chassis and innovative electronics. A concentrated blend of Ducati technology, style and performance

V4 STYLE - The character has taken shape

Elegant, muscular, technological. This is the essence of the style of the new Panigale V4. The Ducati Style Centre gave shape to the character of the bike and its performance following what for Ducati are the canons of Italian sports elegance: large and soft surfaces interrupted by few bold marks. Component integration, the idea of power and functionality have become dominant elements of the style and of the whole project.

Panigale V4 Design

Aero Fairing by Ducati Corse

Co-developed by Ducati Corse and the Ducati Style Center, the Panigale V4 MY2020 aerodynamics package now mirrors that of the Panigale V4 R. The result; fairings that - in true Panigale style - meet official Ducati Superbike requirements in full.

As in MotoGP, aerodynamic development involved a series of preliminary CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) studies, followed by optimisation on a full-scale wind tunnel model.

The Panigale V4 aerodynamics package includes:

  • Plexiglas screen, nose fairing and larger lateral fairings
  • More efficient lateral vents for radiator through-air
  • Aerofoils
  • The new Plexiglas screen - higher and more angled - provides better airflow protection for riders, especially in the helmet and upper shoulder areas. The screen works in concert with a new nose fairing that is higher and wider (+15 mm per side) in the arm-shield zone to reduce arm and shoulder-induced drag on the straights.

The lateral fairings have been widened considerably (+38 mm per side) with the dual aim of reducing on-rider airflow impact and maximising aerofoil efficiency.

On the sides, the stylish air vents of the Panigale V4 have been replaced by more efficient ones that increase air through-speeds on water and oil radiators by 6% and 16% respectively.

Panigale V4 Engine

New changes for 2020 for top performances

The Panigale V4 MY2020 features new, specially developed Ride by Wire system mappings with several torque delivery control settings. Track-dedicated RbW mapping aligns rider demand with delivered torque more closely, resulting in smoother, more predictable throttle response.

V4 90 layout

The Panigale V4 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. 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.

Panigale V4 Chassis

MY2020 changes

Major changes on the Panigale V4 MY2020 chassis have seen the introduction of the Front Frame. Built according to Ducati Corse specifications, the latter features a special suspension set-up with a higher barycentre, an increased chain pull angle and improved use of suspension travel. 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.

Panigale V4 Electronics

Latest-generation electronic controls

The Panigale V4 features a latest-generation electronics package based on a 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (6D IMU) which instantly detects the bike's roll, yaw and pitch angles.

The electronics package oversees every aspect of the ride: some controls supervise start, acceleration and braking, others govern traction and others again lend a helping hand on corners and out-of-the-corner stretches.

ABS Cornering EVO
Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2
Ducati Slide Control (DSC)
Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO
Ducati Power Launch (DPL)
Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) EVO 2
Engine Brake Control (EBC) EVO
Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES) EVO

The operational parameters for each of these controls are associated by default with the three Panigale V4 Riding Modes. Riders can personalise parameters to suit their riding style or restore Ducati factory settings. DTC, DWC, DSC or EBC control levels can be adjusted quickly via the left switchgear.

Panigale Maintenance

Ultra-high performance notwithstanding, valve clearance inspection and adjustment (Desmo Service) intervals remain the same at 24,000 km, while general service intervals also remain unchanged at 12,000 km/12 months.

Panigale V4 Accessories 2020

Panigale V4 2020 Accessories

For 2020 Ducati have a selection of stylish and functional parts and accessories made specifically for the 2020 Panigale V4.

Exhaust systems

Complete titanium exhaust assembly. Made exclusively by Akrapovič with the Ducati experience. It is the most advanced racing assembly available on the market. 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. Once installed on the bike, the exhaust dramatically increases the already excellent weight-topower ratio of the Panigale, for breathtaking accelerations and stretches. Thanks to its experience, Ducati Corse has developed the qualities of the motorcycle and exhaust to their maximum levels to create a perfect synergy, specifically for this exhaust, recalibrating the many and fundamental electronic aids: DTC, DWC, DPL and Slide on demand.

Dry clutch kit

Just like in MotoGP, where the only thing that matters is utmost performance, the dry clutch is made available for the other V4 models (it comes standard on the Panigale V4 R).This is an STM EVO-SBK clutch made from billet aluminium with housing and 48-tooth plate pack. The plates are 9 driven and 9 lined with a diameter of 138 mm. When racing on the track there are important benefits in ease of handling.

Specifically, the dry clutch ensures a more effective slipper function, even during the most aggressive downshifts, and greater fluidity during all "off-throttle" stages. In addition, the "mechanical" engine brake level can be customized by choosing a different secondary spring from those available from the catalogue.

Other important advantages are the absence of resistance from the engine oil and cleaner oil since the plate wear dust is not conveyed into the lubrication circuit. The racing character of the dry clutch is an exciting added benefit for the most passionate Ducatistas.

Magnesium rims

The unmatched lightweight performance of forged magnesium meets style – a signature 9-spoke design that combines class, high performance and weight saving. This set of rims is approved for single-seat use only.

Adjustable rider footpegs in aluminium

Developed thanks to the experience of Ducati Corse and the skillful productive care of Rizoma. Made of high quality anodised aluminium alloy that maintains its original appearance over time. Adjustable in multiple positions, they allow the rider to find the position that best suits their build and riding style. Equipped with fold-away brake and gearchange pedals to minimise the risk of breakage in the event of a slip. They use the standard DQS, which can be configured both as a traditional shift and as a reversed/racing shift. An essential accessory for the most demanding riders.

Pair of handgrips

Inspired by the racing world, these handgrips ensure an excellent grip in every riding situation. Built to avoid accidental slipping of the hand and to reduce the vibrations felt.

Carbon tank cover

A splendid detail that embellishes the front of the new Panigale V4 tank in a way that only carbon fibre can. The finishing and lines of this accessory are perfectly integrated into the racing look of the latest bike made at Borgo Panigale.
