The Red Essence. In White. The twin-cylinder Panigale has a completely new look and refined electronics thanks to the use of the Inertial Platform, and is even better performing and safer on the track, not to mention fully exploitable and enjoyable on the road thanks to a more comfortable seat and revised suspension setup. Its name lets the lovers of Borgo Panigale twin-cylinders know that the model is powered by the 955 cm_ Superquadro.
Sporty Essence The new Panigale V2 Is a beefy yet compact bike of essential design with clear-cut lines that convey power without compromising classic Ducati superbike flair. The Panigale V2 features the single-sided aluminium swingarm, the hallmark of every high-end sports Ducati. The extensive fairing highlights the more compact twin-cylinder Superquadro engine smaller in comparison to the Desmosedici Stradale.
Panigale look Dominating the front end are the two large air intakes, the upper parts of which incorporate the full-LED headlight. The new intakes merge with the existing air feed layout via newly designed ducts that, delivery rates remaining equal, lose less pressure than the previous ones, thus boosting intake efficiency. The headlight has been compacted with the express intent of giving the intakes themselves - especially with the bike at standstill - a more menacing air.
"Double Layer" fairing The fairing has a 'dual layer' configuration: a main layer that extends upwards and merges into the tank via two sturdy struts, and a secondary layer that also acts as an air vent. This 'dual layer' solution revives the clean lines typical of Ducati sports bikes, famed for their full-fairing look. The fairing underside merges visually with the under-engine silencer, which terminates in an extremely compact right-side-only end pipe.
