By releasing the Ducati 2021 Panigale V4 SP Sports Bike, which has the letters “SP” (Sport Production), once again at the firing of the Ducati Super Sports Bike, Ducati added to the Panigale V4 family. The designation was initially used on the floor Ducati 851 to identify the models that served as the basis for creating the racing motorcycles used in the Sport Production Championships, which are modern. It was the predecessor of Superstock. Even today, Ducati production bikes with special technical equipment that make it faster on the track are identified by the acronym “SP.”
According to this principle, the Panigale V4 SP differs from the Panigale V4 S MY21 not only in terms of dedicated leverage and bullet steering head, which indicates the progressive number of the motorcycle but also the chassis material-rich equipment. The engine is intended to increase the motorcycle’s dynamic performance when used on the track. The unique technology of Panigale V4 SP enables it to lose 1 kg weight compared to Panigale V4 S, which reduces the motorcycle’s dry weight to 173 kg.

Winter Test Livery
The Panigale V4 SP has a unique lever called the “Winter Test,” modeled by the Ducati Corse motorcycles used in the pre-season testing of the MotoGP and SBK Championships.
Although the bright red highlights that point to the tail, tank, and firing point the red color of the Borgo Panigale racing motorcycles, the “full black” appearance of the Matt Black of the fairings and carbon rims contrasts with the brightness of the formation. Brushed aluminum tank. The “V4 SP” mark, unique to the material, is personal on the set, and the Italian flag, which is also present on the factory Panigale V4 R SBK motorcycles, has been incorporated into the carbon wings.
The 1,103cc Desmosedici Stradale engine, compliant with Euro 5 European anti-pollution standards, powers the Panigale V4 SP. A counter-rotating crankshaft and “Twin Plus” firing configuration set this 90 ° V4 apart from its peers. It is derived from MotoGP. The engine can produce 12.6 Kgm of torque at 9,500 rpm and 214 hp at 13,000 rpm.
A billet aluminum STM EVO-SBK dry clutch is used in 90 ° V4 of Panigale V4 SP. Compared to the wet grip of the Panigale V4 S, the dry clutch ensures greater flow in all “off-throttle” phases. It provides a more efficient anti-hop function, even during highly aggressive fluctuations. It also offers the option to customize the “mechanical” engine brake level by selecting the various secondary springs provided in the Ducati Performance Catalog.
The advanced technical components of the Ducati Superleggera V4 include the chassis of the Panigale V4 SP, including a carbon wheel, Brembo Stylema R® front brake caliper, and a Brembo brake pump with MCS system. The list includes premium adjustable aluminum rider foot pegs with carbon heel protectors and built-in steering heads with the bike’s progress number.
To make the invaluable Panigale V4 SP wheels, high-strength carbon fiber and aluminum hubs are attached to the composite material, which has five split spokes. The Panigale V4 S’s forged aluminum wheels and the Panigale V4’s aluminum wheels allow a weight loss of 1.4 kg compared to 3.4 kg, which benefits agility and lightness when changing lanes.
The Panigale V4 MY2021 range has a new riding mode strategy that lets riders quickly compare two alternate configurations on the track to choose the ideal setup. This strategy manages the operating settings of each control. In addition to the pre-existing Sport and Street Riding modes, the Race Riding mode is divided into two separate maps for track use (Race A and Race B). The two maps are now freely comparable in individual parameters.
In addition, the Ducati Traction Control EVO 3 (DTC EVO 3), designed for MY2021, is used on the Panigale V4 SP. To prevent a boost peak after the clearance of Desmosedici Stradale has been restored, this method intervenes during the throttle reopening period in the middle of the curve. It makes corner exit acceleration much easier and more predictable.
