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.
