2021 Ducati Panigale V4 S,
The Science of Speed
The 2020 version of the Panigale V4 boosts performance even further and takes track riding to the next level for amateurs and pros alike.
A series of refinements make for an easier, more user-friendly, less fatiguing ride while simultaneously making the bike faster not just on individual laps but over entire timed sessions. The Aero Pack provides enhanced airflow protection and improves overall vehicle stability, enhancing confidence. The Front Frame, instead, modifies stiffness to give better front-end 'feel' at extreme lean angles.
Ducati and Ducati Corse engineers have crunched the feedback/data numbers from customers all over the world and Superbike World Championship events. Their analysis has led to a series of aerodynamic, chassis, electronic control and Ride by Wire mapping changes: designed to increase stability and turn-in speed, these changes make it easier to close corners and ensure riders enjoy more confident throttle control.
2020 product improvements make the new Panigale V4 faster on the track than its 2019 predecessor. Riders of all skill levels will see the difference. During development on a test ride at the Vallelunga circuit, both an amateur rider and professional rider Michele Pirro benefited from the 2020 improvements with the amateur rider going 1.3 seconds faster and Michele Pirro shaving 0.4 seconds off his time.
The S version comes with Öhlins event-based electronic control; this uses the second-generation Öhlins Smart EC (Electronic Control) system that, exploits the full potential of the IMU 6D.
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 optimization 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
V4 90° layout
The Panigale V4 is powered by the 1,103 cc 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.
