Ducati India has added two new entries to the Panigale V4 family, with prices for the “base” version starting at Rs 23.50 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
The “S” variant will cost 28.40 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi. Ducati’s launch of the Panigale V4 in BS6-compliant guise comes after the Italian bike maker recently announced it is bringing the updated 1,103cc.
Desmosedici Stradale 90-degree V4, liquid-cooled engine to its 2018 range of bikes, including the Hypermotard 939 and Monster 821.
Let’s talk about the styling cues and features that make these motorcycles stand out.
At first glance, the V4s look identical to the outgoing models. But when you take a closer look, you will notice several changes.
The fuel tank is distinctively shaped, and the side panels are made of strong but lightweight plastic composite.
What’s the difference between these two (V4 and V4S) Ducati motorcycles? They both look identical, but their power outputs and torque levels vary.
You might think it’s pretty obvious which one has better performance capabilities — The V4 S, of course. But that’s not the case.
Combine the highest power-to-weight ratio ever seen in a superbike with one of the more advanced traction control systems anywhere in production today.
Plus a suspension system unlike any other in production, and you have a motorcycle that is, by any measure, astounding.
So what’s the Ducati V4 S like to ride? It all depends on how you choose to define performance.
If anyone tells you that the V4 is better than the previous engine in terms of power, torque, and acceleration, they are mistaken.
However, if you want to know whether the V4 S feels faster than an old engine, we think it does :).
