The New Panigale V4 My 2020 Available At Ducati Dealers

Discussion in 'Front Page Articles' started by El Toro, Jan 21, 2020.

    • Further improved, easier, more intuitive, less tiring and even faster, the new Panigale V4 is ready to take to the track
    • After being confirmed for the second consecutive year, the best-selling super sports bike in the world is now available from Ducati dealers
    • Over 450 motorcycles delivered in Europe and the United States
    Borgo Panigale (Bologna, Italy), 20 January 2020 - Since 2018, the date of its arrival on the market, the Panigale V4 has established new benchmarks in the super sports bike segment where, for the second consecutive year, it is the best-selling motorcycle in the world.

    The production of the Panigale V4 MY2020 is in full swing. Around 450 motorcycles have been delivered to European and US dealers, and in the coming weeks the new super sports bike will also reach the other markets in the world in which Ducati is present.

    To confirm the success already achieved by this jewel of style and technology, feedback and data from customers and the specialized press were collected and analysed in Borgo Panigale. This allowed Ducati to make a Panigale V4 that is easier, less fatiguing and more intuitive to ride, resulting in an even faster bike on the stopwatch, with an improvement that is all the more evident the lesser the rider's experience. In short, it is an even more powerful and enjoyable bike for an amateur who, on the track, can bring his performance closer to that of a professional rider.

    The Panigale V4 is now equipped with content taken from the V4 R. For example, the aerodynamic package through-air (aerofoils, plexiglas screen, nose fairing and larger lateral fairings, more efficient lateral vents for the radiator), which provides enhanced airflow protection and improves overall vehicle stability, enhancing confidence.

    The update is completed by the Front Frame chassis with modified stiffness, to give better front-end 'feel' at extreme lean angles. What's more, the bike includes DTC and DQS up/down EVO 2 strategies. Thanks to a new 'predictive' control strategy, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2 significantly improves out-of-the-corner power control; Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) EVO 2, instead, shortens up-shift times, allowing sportier high-rev gear shifts (over 10,000 rpm) and boosting shift stability during aggressive acceleration and cornering. The bike also features specially-developed Ride by Wire system mappings with several torque delivery control logics.

    The Panigale V4 is powered by the 1,103 cc Desmosedici Stradale (banked 42° back from the horizontal), a MotoGP-derived 90° V4 with Desmodromic timing, a one-of-a-kind engine featuring a counter-rotating crankshaft and Twin Pulse firing order. The engine can deliver 214 hp at 13,000 rpm and a torque of 12.6 kgm at 10,000 rpm, making for awesome road riding.

  1. Exact same engine. Phew! All the rest can be tweaked....

  3. Have they made one that doesn’t break down or need constant recalls

  4. Don’t believe all the shite. Every cunt moaning about them didn’t even own one.
    Think I went twice to Cornerspeed for recall stuff. The only thing I remember is the oil rad being replaced. Even though there was nowt wrong with it.
    Great bike ;) There were a few recalls but it was small shit. Nothing big like incorrect machining of engine casings.... ahem :laughing:
  5. Bad BMW robot (#5). Even some new 1250GS owners are experiencing issues with dodgy engineso_O

  6. I think the V4 is turning out to have less problems than the gen4 S1000RR. The V4 has had a lot of niggles but nothing as serious as failing wheels and calipers.
  7. Will Ducati offer existing V4 owners an upgrade to 2020 mapping?
  8. I heard that yes

  10. No recalls from BMW for engines, wheels or brakes. Trust me, I've got an early Gen 4 and not had one issue.

    Yes there was a delay because of a machining issue with the engine casings, but that was solved before the bikes landed with the customers.
    Only recalls to date on the Gen 4 are a software update and the oil cooler recall.
    There's rumors of brake calipers leaking fluid but it's only rumors at the minute and there's been no recalls. My bikes with the dealer as we speak for the oil cooler recall so I know that there's no other recalls.

    Maybe if Ducati delayed the release of the V4 to sort out their niggles then there wouldn't be so many recalls on it.

  11. From the right pair of wet-panties

    Brakes are shite, I heard....

  13. Or rear wheel axle failure..
  14. What on?
  15. One thing I find interesting is that you hardly ever see these on track. And if you do they’re wobbling around doing nothing.

    never see them in the racing paddocks unless it’s bsb or wsbk and that’s only the top class.

    Odd for something that’s ‘built for the track’

    my theory is, only the factory supported teams can justify them. If you look at the superbikes they’re proper ground up builds. Reliability and cost id guess as well.

    Still love them mind. But do find it funny that most people will go faster on a vastly cheaper brand

  16. You’re welcome to have a go for yourself if you can get a proper rota :joy:

    Nothing wrong with the brakes that a set of pads won’t sort. I spoke to Hickman about it in Alcarras when I got some tuition. All he’s got on his bike is some different brake fluid, set of alpha pads and discs. Standard MC
