at a price tag of Rs 36.07 lakh, ex showroom, pan India. The Panigale V4 SP is
available in winter test livery in matt black with bright red details and
exposed brushed aluminium fuel tank.
are now open across all Ducati dealerships in Delhi – NCR, Mumbai, Pune,
Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Kochi, Kolkata & Chennai with deliveries starting
initials “SP” (Sport Production) comes on the fairing of a Ducati super sports
bike after many years. Introduced for the first time on the legendary Ducati
851, this abbreviation identified the versions that formed the basis for
development of racing bikes used in the Sport Production Championship, a
precursor of the current Superstock. Even today, in Ducati, the acronym
"SP" is used to recognise a production bike with specific technical
equipment that makes it faster on the track.
with this philosophy, the Panigale V4 SP differs from the Panigale V4 S with a
dedicated livery, steering head machined from billet which shows the
progressive number of the bike, equipment enriched with chassis contents and
the engine designed to increase its dynamic performance when used on the
Desmosedici Stradale engine of the “SP” is equipped with a dry clutch, which is
essential to be effective on the track when riding to the limit, and is coupled
to a final drive with a 520 pitch chain, which is lighter than normal.
equipment of the Panigale V4 SP is completed by the adjustable rider foot pegs
in billet aluminium that allow the rider to find the optimal position in the
saddle, by the carbon front mudguard and by accessories that can be used on
"track days", such as the open carbon clutch cover, caps for removing
the license plate holder and mirrors, as well as the Ducati Data Analyzer +
(DDA +) telemetry kit with a GPS module that allows you to professionally
analyse your performance on the track.
to its technical equipment, the Panigale V4 SP is the ideal bike for anyone who
wants to hit the track and go fast immediately. The quality of the bike under
braking is extraordinary, as is the lightness in going into the lean and the
tendency to close the line. An amateur rider on the "SP" will be
faster than if he were riding the more demanding "R" version.
Panigale V4 SP is powered by the 1,103 cc Desmosedici Stradale engine, a 90° V4
derived from MotoGP, unique in its kind for the counter-rotating crankshaft and
“Twin Pulse” firing order. The engine is capable of delivering 214 hp of power
at 13,000 rpm, and 12.6 Kgm of torque at 9,500 rpm.
terms of chassis, the Panigale V4 SP is equipped with state-of-the-art technical
content such as Brembo Stylema Callipers and Brembo brake pump with MCS system.
Added to these are the adjustable aluminium rider foot pegs with carbon heel
guards and the billet steering head with the progressive number of the bike.
wheels of the Panigale V4 SP are Marchesini Forged Magnesium Wheels which offer
in rolling inertia to give an advantage of agility and lightness in changes of
rider foot pegs are made of high quality anodized aluminium alloy which
maintains its original
over time. In addition to being a pleasure for the eye, these foot pegs allow
the rider to find the position that best suits his build and riding style. They
are equipped with carbon fibre heel guards and articulated brake and shift
pedals to minimize the risk of breakage in the event of a slide and designed to
quickly switch between traditional and GP style shifting configurations.
the Panigale V4 S, the SP version is also equipped with an Öhlins NIX-30 fork,
Öhlins TTX36 rear shock absorber and Öhlins steering damper controlled by the
second generation Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 system. The main advantage of this system
is the possibility offered to the rider to customize the intensity of
intervention on the suspension according to individual riding phases (braking,
cornering, and acceleration). In addition, it allows the rider to have a softer
basic setting and therefore easier and less demanding than that of a traditional
suspension, stiffening instantly only when necessary.
Panigale V4 SP is equipped with a state-of-the-art electronic package, based on
the use of the 6-axis
inertial platform which includes controls for managing all phases of riding.
