The perfect fusion of power and elegance
The new Panigale V2 Is a beefy yet compact bike of essential design with clear-cut lines that convey power without compromising classic Ducati superbike flair.
The Panigale V2 features the single-sided aluminum swingarm, the hallmark of every high-end sports Ducati. The extensive fairing highlights the more compact twin-cylinder Superquadro engine (smaller in comparison to the Desmosedici Stradale), creating a bike that is visibly leaner and less intimidating than the Panigale V4.
Superquadro: The Ducati twin-cylinder
The 955 cm³ twin-cylinder Superquadro engine complies with Euro 5 standards. Compared to the engine on the 959 Panigale it delivers an additional 5 hp and 2 Nm more of torque. it also features a new compact exhaust silencer, routed entirely underneath the engine.
With a maximum power of 155 hp at 10,750 rpm and a torque of 104 Nm at 9,000 rpm, this twin-cylinder engine delivers power smoothly and enjoyably on the road while remaining forceful – yet always under control – on the track.
More comfortable and safe
The Panigale V2 has revised ergonomics aimed at improving comfort. The new seat allows for greater longitudinal movement of the rider and greater comfort thanks to the new foam that raises it by 5 mm. The position of the footpegs remains the same.
The best technology and electronics
The Panigale V2 features modern electronics based on a 6-axis inertial platform which instantly detects the bike’s roll, yaw and pitch angles.
The new electronics package raises active safety and dynamic control standards by adding the cornering function to the ABS, upgrading the quick-shift 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″ color TFT dashboard. Featuring a user-friendly graphic interface browsing menus, adjusting settings and identifying the selected Riding Mode couldn’t be easier.
