Ducati Introduce Panigale V4 SP
This limited-edition motorcycle features dedicated dark livery and several top-spec components from the ultra-exclusive Superleggera
Ducati’s flagship Panigale family of sport bikes have a new member with the introduction of the Panigale V4 SP, marking the return of the Italian marque’s SP suffix. Short for Sport Production, these two letters haven’t been used on a Ducati superbike since 2012 and have made a return for the 2021 line-up.
The Panigale V4 SP sits just below the WSBK homologation-spec V4 R and is powered by the same 1,103-cc, 214-hp Desmosedici Stradale motor that we know from the standard Panigale V4 and V4 S; although it gets a few components from the more expensive V4R and Superleggera models. These include the STM EVO-SBK dry clutch, carbon-fibre wheels, winglets, and front mud-guard as well as the Superleggera’s 330mm discs with Brembo Stylema R calipers up front.
Other trick bits include sporty Rizoma footpegs with carbon-fibre heel-plates, adjustable rear brake and gear levers, and an individually numbered billet aluminium triple clamp. The dark livery is inspired by the Ducati Corse winter test colours, while suspension duties are managed by the semi-active Öhlins units from the V4 S. The price for the Indian market will be announced at the launch next year.
