Borgo Panigale, Bologna, 17 January 2018 – The wait is over. Production of the Ducati Panigale V4, which began last 15th November, is already running at full capacity. Even before the end of 2017, about 500 motorcycles had already been delivered to European dealerships. Over the coming weeks this stunning superbike will also be available to other markets where Ducati is present.
Jorge Lorenzo showed a big interest in the new superbike, so after the 2018 Ducati Team presentation he visited the production line with product engineers to get to know all technical aspects of this masterpiece.
The Panigale V4 is the first production Ducati motorcycle to mount a 4-cylinder engine, derived directly from the MotoGP Desmosedici.. It's a concentrate of Ducati technology, style and performance. With a power/weight ratio of 1.1 hp/kg, this bike sets a whole new standard in the supersport production bike segment. Developed in close collaboration with Ducati Corse, this road bike is the closest thing possible to its MotoGP counterpart.
The wait is over, a new era has begun.
