The VIN layout is: The first three characters are from the bike manufacturing factory – either ZDM for Ducati’s Bologna plant or ML0 for the Thai establishment factory. The fourth character model defines ult Multistrada, Panigale, Hypermotard, Street Fighter, Devil, “Superbike,” Scrabbler, Monster or Superstarpits. The fifth letter is always an “A” while the sixth point to the more detailed model line and referee to the seventh engine type. I relate the eighth to power; the ninth is the draft digit to verify the real VIN, the tenth is the sample year, and the eleventh is the plants’ place. I calculate them all by a six-digit product number. So, finally Three Brand New Ducatis are on Their Way In 2021.
It is in this code that matches the disjunctive models. According to Dakati’s 2021 VIN definition, the fifth-character position covers all known models of the bikes range included by this “A” and covers 1703 Project, 1706 Project, and 1803 Project.
Looking further at the definitions, the sixth character in the VIN, which comes with each motorcycle, is showing a more detailed model range, which is “C” for the 1803 project – the same water-powered Monster 1200 and Monster 821, and 1803 is a water-cooled monster model for Project 2021. Investigator photos have antecedently discovered that the firm is working on a new Al monster, expected to replace the 821, and it is likely to be the 1803 project.
The next alternative model to get a specific reference in the sixth character position is the 1706 project – which gets its letter “L” in the VIN instead of sharing it with anything in the range. It means that it might become a machine with no other close relationship. It is a long-awaited Multistrada V4, which will not get the VIN sixth character like other multi-trades because of its different engine.
The list of “engine type” VIN characters in the certification show a new 1,158cc version of the Ducati V4 engine in 2021, and I almost know this. That’s the motor that’s going in the Panigale V4. A longer stroke – from 1,103cc Panigale V4 to 53.5 mm to 55.2 mm, giving the cumulative overall size of 1,158 ccs, with a coincident increase in torque, as needed by an adventure bike Will Prolonged stroke will probably reduce the speed of the peak and limit the power of the water to a slightly lower general power than the V4, but this will not cause any real casualty to the Multistrada.
It leaves only the 1703 project as a known model, but once again, a sign was found in the paperwork. The documentation lists a new variant of the 1,000cc V-4 engine used by the Panigale V4 R WSBK Homologization Special, which dubbed “Second Phase,” “U.” The seventh letter “S” is the original 1000cc V-4 in the current 2020 Panigale V4 Rs. The current V4R has denatured over the last two years. Ducati usually updates its WSBK homologation machines every other season, so we’re on a better-looking plan as the firm first announced its WSBK title. Difficult to pull back. Since Carlos Chicha won the 1198R almost a decennary ago.
