Fast Filings: Ducati Registers for a Panigale V4 SP2 30° Anniversario 916

Curious what Ducati’s got in store for the rest of their World Première 2024?
According to the California Air Resources Board, we might be seeing a decked-out Panigale V4 that celebrates thirty years of the 916. If this model is anything like what Ducati premiered roughly five years ago, we might even see design inspiration from the archives of Massimo Tamburini, who was credited for the look of the original 916.
But back to the bike.
Per this CARB filing and Dennis Chung’s contributions on Motorcycle.com, we’re all expecting a Panigale with all the fixins, which may or may not include forged magnesium rims, a lightweight titanium Akrapovič pipe, carbon fiber componentry, and a dedicated color scheme.
Based on the initial “Save the Date” YouTube video Ducati released, we can also better pinpoint which date Ducati will choose for this special – likely limited-edition – beastie in their World Première 2024.
