Design and Features
The looks are quite similar to what we have seen in the past, but Ducati has redefined it to shape its character into an elegant yet a muscular machine. It weighs lesser than the race track version which accounts for easy manoeuvring and instant performance- thanks to the Front Frame which has replaced the aluminium perimeter frame. The new frame gives it a tight fairing look and makes it a lot more compact road machine. Upfront, it features an edgy and slimmer dual headlamp setup and larger air ducts for enhanced aerodynamics. The concept of Double Layer fairing has been included where the inner fairing extracts the heat from the radiator while the outer one gives it a cleaner appearance. There is a new five-inch colour TFT screen with two layouts for road and track that displays a host of information in an organized manner. The Ducati’s trademark Diamond tank gives the rider the much-needed assistance when leaning into the extreme corners and in the straights. It also offers lateral grip to the rider’s knees when braking into the corners. The tail section of the bike is a bit raised one. It floats in the air depicting its ‘ready-to-race’ character. The tail light comes with full LED. On the features front, the standard V4 comes with full LED-headlight with DRLs, Ducati Power Launch (DPL), Sachs steering damper, Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down EVO, quick control selection, automatic switch-off turn signals. The Panigale V4 S gets components like aluminium forged rims and lithium-ion battery. The wheelbase of the bike is 1469mm and the seat height is 830mm.

On the transmission front, it gets chain drive mechanism with hydraulically controlled slipper and wet multi-plate clutch. The V4 layout at 90° has been developed that is the same solution used in the MotoGP Desmosedici engines. The counter-rotating crankshaft is included, which is also borrowed from the MotoGP.
