Pure racing adrenaline

The Panigale V4 R embodies the maximum expression of Ducati values: style, sophistication, performance.

It is the maximum expression of Ducati’s racing DNA, similar to a racing prototype as no other bike: a forward-looking model that accompanies the rider towards a dimension of advanced riding, made up of curves and straights that run incredibly fast, thanks to the electronics that, like an invisible, magical safety net, allows going beyond the limits.

Designed to elicit a symphony of emotions, thanks also to the dry clutch, the Panigale V4 R transfoms the concept of performance: not only acceleration, braking ability and best lap time, but also safety and ease of riding, whatever the level of experience.

In short, pure racing adrenalin under control.

Racing Attitude

Panigale V4 R: from those who have experienced it!

“I still have a clear sense of the feeling I felt at the Cimini corner in Vallelunga: a double parabolic right turn to be done in one unique lap. The elbow that skims the asphalt, the bike lying on the ground which follows a single line without requiring any kind of adjustment from the rider. Above all, it has the precision of a blade and a stability that reminds me of a 998. Last but not least… what a beauty!”
Alessandro Valia, Official Ducati Tester

Lightened components

The Desmosedici Stradale R features lightened internal components that contribute to reach 16,500 rpm in sixth gear.

Dry clutch

The V4 R is equipped with an STM EVO-SBK clutch made from billet aluminium with housing and 48-tooth plate pack. The plates are 9 driven and 9 lined with a diameter of 138 mm.

Intake

The Desmosedici Stradale R engine breathes thanks to the oval throttle bodies with aerodynamic throttles and equivalent diameter increased by 4 mm (56 mm in total), connected to variable height intake funnels with dedicated lengths.

Plexiglas, headlight fairing and side fairings

Compared to the Panigale V4, the new windscreen, higher and with greater incidence, improves the air protection of the rider in the fairing, with effect in particular on the helmet and the upper part of the shoulders

Aerodynamic appendices

The Panigale V4 R is provided with aerodynamic appendices derived from those used on the GP16, thus with a greater efficiency compared to those currently used in the MotoGP.

Effects on riding

The aerodynamic appendices and the special design of the fairing increase the vertical load to the wheels (overall + 30 kg at 270 km/h). Increased load results in a reduction in the “floatation” of the front wheel at high speeds and of the wheelie tendency, and greater stability during braking, corner entry and cornering.

Side extractors

On the sides, the elegant air vents of the Panigale V4 are replaced by more efficient extractors, designed to manage the operating temperatures during the race of the more powerful engine that drives the competition Ducati Panigale V4 R. The extractors increase the speed at which the cooling air crosses the water and oil radiators by 6% and 16%, respectively.

Front Frame

The “Front Frame” of the Panigale V4 R stands out for the lightening on the machined side panels that allow to reach the stiffness target required by Ducati Corse and further reduce its weight.

Adjustable pivot

The modifications to the chassis are completed by the possibility of adjusting the height of the rear swinging arm pivot to 4 positions in steps of 2 mm. The adjustable pivot increases the adjustment possibilities to more precisely adapt the bike to the riding style and the type of track.

Öhlins mechanical suspensions

Considering its special use, almost exclusively on track, the Panigale V4 R is not provided with the Öhlins event-based, semi-active suspensions of the V4 S, but features professional mechanical units of the Swedish company

Electronic package

The Panigale V4 R is equipped with the latest generation electronic package, the one of the Panigale V4, that manages all riding phases, based on the use of the 6-axis inertial platform by Bosch (6D IMU – Inertial Measurement Unit), suitably reviewed in the logic of intervention to better support the professional riders.

TFT Instrumentation

The Panigale V4 R uses the same cutting-edge, high resolution 5″ full-TFT colour display (186.59 PPI – 800xRGBx480) as the Panigale V4. Graphics have been revised to reflect the introduction of new functions and the higher engine rev ‘red zone’.

Pit Limiter (PIT)

The Pit Limiter makes its debut on the Panigale V4 R: once enabled, by pressing the proper key on the right-hand block, it self-limits the bike speed when riding in the pit lane. The speed limit can be changed through the specific menu from a minimum of 40 km/h to a maximum of 80 km/h.

Ducati Lap Timer GPS (DLT GPS) and Ducati Data Analyser+ (DDA+)

The Panigale V4 R is provided with a lap timer integrated in the instrument panel, with evolved functions with respect to the one available for the Panigale V4.
