The 2022 Ducati Panigale V4 and V4 S received the most thorough update yet, with revisions to the engine, chassis, electronics, aerodynamics, and ergonomics. Ducati Motorcycles Panigale V4 platform has been pushing the envelope in the superbike segment with cutting-edge tech trickled down from MotoGP and WSBK. The 2022 variant is no different.
The Italian Manufacturer’s MotoGP-derived Desmosedici Stradale engine maintains its 1,103cc capacity for 2022, but a new torque management system and dedicated mapping bump the V4 up to 210 HP at 12,500 rpm and 90.6 lb-ft of torque at 11,000 rpm. A new SBK gearbox with wider 1st, 2nd, and 6th gears helps deliver power where the rider needs it. With better slow-speed cornering, harder corner-exit acceleration, and a higher top speed.
The seat and tank have been redesigned to maximize the rider’s performance and minimize the physical effort required for track riding. The grippy seat cover locks the rider in place during hard braking while a reshaped fuel tank offers a better anchor point for the legs.
There are four Riding Modes (Race A, Race B, Sport, Street) that change the superbike’s personality. Additionally, at the suggestion of Ducati MotoGP riders, technicians developed a new Track Evo info mode. By shifting the tachometer bar to the top of the display, the gear indicator at the center, and rider aids along the right side, the new layout provides the ideal screen legibility for amateur and track riders.
While the Panigale V4 and V4 S share much of the same equipment, the up-spec S model features electronically controlled Öhlins suspension, with an NPX 25/30 fork, TTX36 rear shock, and steering damper. Rolling on premium forged aluminum alloy wheels with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires. The standard V4, on the other hand, is fitted with a fully adjustable Showa Big Piston fork, Sachs rear shock, Sachs steering damper, and cast-aluminum wheels.
Out of the 2022 Ducati lineup, the Panigale V4 line is the one to watch for any MotoGP trickle down tech. As you will see in the other variants.
