Man, I’ve got to figure out a better order for the title of these DWP 2024 Episodes. They’re getting so long that they don’t even fit anymore… though it’s certainly not Ducati’s fault for bursting at the seams with new bike models and variants.
Welcome to the final episode of Ducati’s iconic World Première 2024, where our favorite Bologna-based bike brand has, once again, pulled the curtains on a beauty of a bike: The2024 Panigale V4 SP2 30° Anniversario 916, a 500-piece fleet of machines that pay homage to the original supersport icon of 1994.
According to Ducati’s website, this 30th Anniversary V4 SP2 ain’t just a fast bike painted in a cute bit of livery; Team Red also has gifted their new aniversary-edition V4 SP2 with top-tier componentry to help on the track… though I’d personally be more inclined to have this thing preserved as a livingroom centerpiece.
Below is the list of everything that comes as standard for the all-new 2024 Panigale V4 SP2 30° Anniversario 916. Heads up: If it’s got two “**,” it’s exclusive to this variant, and if Ducati’s rated it to one “*,” it sticks to the circuit!
