The Sport Production Ducati Panigale V4 SP
The Panigale V4 and V4 S models may not have received an update for the new year, but Ducati hasn’t been ideal. Instead, the Italian manufacturer has added a whole new Panigale model to the 2021 Ducati line-up. This is Ducati Panigale V4 SP, a numbered run of “Sport Production” designated V4s. It’s a premium product that’s full of top-level engineering and exciting lightweight parts—which is exactly what you expect from exotic Ducati motorcycles.
Essentially, the Panigale V4 SP shares the same DNA as the other Panigale models. For example, it has the same 1,103 cc Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine with 214 horsepower and 91.5 lb-ft of torque. The engine is the same, and it features more electronics and riding aids than most riders would know what to do with, such as electronic suspension, riding modes, traction control, cornering ABS, et cetera. But what makes it worthy of the Sport Production moniker?
The answer is the liberal amount of carbon fiber and billet aluminum features. The wheels, wings, mudguards, and heel guards are made from carbon fiber. The footpegs and steering stem are billet aluminum. And if you want more, other options included a carbon clutch cover, billet block-off plates, and more!
For 2021, the Panigale V4 SP is available in a unique Winter Test livery, comprising of matt black, and red and brushed aluminum details.
The 2021 Ducati Panigale V4 SP starts at $37,000 USD / $42,995 CAD.
