I like the white 959's but that looks like its trying a bit too hard. I would take a red one.
Nice but would like a yellow one too
Personally I'd like to see a simplified version of the new Superlegerra colours on there, lots of gloss black and deep red, with the Panigale V2 logo's on the side, but I guess that would be a 'Corse' colour and maybe they are saving that for nearer the end of the production run.
Also weird that they are releasing the colour now, makes me wonder if:
1)They had LOADS of feedback from people who wanted a white version, similar to the 959
2)They are struggling to sell as many as they hoped, which would surprise me unless it's purely covid related.
3)They forgot to order the white paint in November....
The colour range of the Ducati Panigale V2 is extended with the new White Rosso livery, production from July 2020

Borgo Panigale (Bologna, Italy), 1 July 2020 - The colour range of the Panigale V2 is extended with the new White Rosso livery, which goes alongside the monochromatic Ducati Red livery with which the bike was presented last November.
The new White Rosso livery has Star White Silk as its main colour. The predominance of white enhances the design of the Panigale V2, highlighting the lines and the purity of the geometrical shapes. At the same time the details in Ducati Red emphasize its sporty and powerful character. The Ducati Red colours the rims, the front air intakes and the deflectors of the upper half-fairings. These last two red touches ideally accompany the path of the airflows inside the motorcycle, i.e. those that feed the engine and those that pass through the radiator.
This new livery is completed with an additional touch of sportiness thanks to the positioning on the lower half-fairings of the large Panigale V2 logo, inspired by the graphics of Ducati Corse motorcycles.
Testimonial of the Panigale V2 and protagonist of the photo and video shooting of the new livery is the rider of the Pramac Racing Team Francesco "Pecco" Bagnaia. In fact, Pecco was able to enjoy a preview of the bike by testing it at the Misano World Circuit "Marco Simoncelli".
"Since 2016, my personal motto has been #GoFree. For me it means living in a light-hearted and carefree way, having fun and giving priority to the things you love to do. I think the Panigale V2 fits well with this definition and reflects my way of being ", said Pecco Bagnaia after trying the Panigale V2. "The new livery, so white, is very beautiful and different from the usual. Despite being a street bike, it surprised me how much speed it can have when cornering. It is a fun, very stable and very sincere bike that allows you to go fast, safely, without becoming tired, while having a very strong and decisive character and personality."
The Panigale V2, presented less than a year ago and capable of immediately conquering an enthusiastic public, is the super-mid of the Ducati sports bikes and represents the entry model to the Panigale family. It is powered by the 955 cc Superquadro twin-cylinder engine (compliant with Euro 5 standard) and has a maximum power of 155 hp at 10,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 104 Nm at 9,000 rpm. The power of the Panigale V2 allows to have fun on the track, delivering a motorcycle in the hands of the rider that never puts you in difficulty and can always be fully exploited. The delivery of the twin-cylinder is such that more than 70% of the maximum torque is constantly available beyond 5,500 rpm, allowing to get out of the corners quickly, even the slowest ones.
The chassis of the Panigale V2 is based on the monocoque frame and is dressed in an elegant and sporty design inspired by that of the Panigale V4. The fairing has extensive and clean surfaces that surround the mechanical components, enhancing the small size of the Superquadro twin-cylinder and creating a visually compact motorcycle.
The "family feeling" with the other Panigale models is also underlined by the single-sided swingarm, while the compact-sized single lateral exit exhaust, with under-engine silencer, emphasizes the clean lines of the Panigale V2.
The complete and modern electronic equipment, based on the 6-axis inertial platform, leaves no doubt about the sporting DNA of the bike. The electronic package, dedicated to active safety and vehicle dynamics control, includes the "cornering" functionality applied to the Bosch ABS, an electronic gearbox, with operation also in downshift and traction, engine braking and wheelie controls. All the controls are integrated into the three Riding Modes (Race, Sport and Street) that can be modified via the 4.3” TFT colour dashboard with graphics and interface designed to make menu navigation and setting adjustments intuitive, as well as the immediate identification of the selected Riding Mode.
The chassis has fully-adjustable suspension with a Showa Big Piston Fork (BPF) 43 mm in diameter and a Sachs shock absorber set up to make the bike intuitive, agile and fun; in addition, the specific calibration of the hydraulic brakes makes it comfortable for road use. Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa II multi-compound tyres, which combine track performance with versatility on the road, also contribute to the dynamic qualities of the Panigale V2.
The ergonomics of the semi-handlebars and the rider seat offer a non-fatiguing position on the road and an efficient one on the track, thus allowing the rider to move freely.
The technical equipment is completed by a Sachs steering damper and by a Brembo braking system with M4.32 monobloc callipers activated by a radial brake master cylinder. The discs are 320 mm in diameter at the front with a single 245 mm disc at the rear. Braking is powerful, never excessively aggressive and always adjustable.
Production of the Panigale V2 in White Rosso livery from July 2020.
Is there a a pic of this pure silky white red?
Love the colour scheme, especially the Red around the lights, but that fairing sticker looks shit!
Its not floating my boat
That's a tarts colour all day long,don't let anyone tell you different.
It looks like a quick 'refresh' similar to what they did on the latest Multi GT...not doing it for me.
needs gold wheels
I like the scheme as photographed but I would like to see it in the flesh before fully committing. Andy
Not sure about the red infills
Wish they'd do a yellow one!
looks like a supersport with lipstick,not going to help sales at all
Fellas, I think it looks lovely, I also think a giallo ginestra (yellow) variant would be pleasing to the eye, maybe one of our photoshop guru's could alter the image?
I'm not a fan of white bikes but this is not to bad but it still has to be red for me!!
I like it ,but then i bought a 1998 R1 in the candy white/red back in 1999 when not many people liked it ,glad i did and glad i kept it ,
They need to make something like this...
Yuk!!....looks like a Chinese attempt at a sports bike, does not exude the air of class that Ducati bikes should.
