2023 Panigale V4 SP2
The Ultimate Racetrack Machine
The Panigale V4 SP2 is the top-of-the-range model for Ducati super sports bikes: a special, exciting version for track riding, even more intuitive and less strenuous for riders of all levels.
The Panigale V4 SP2 is characterized by the special “Winter Test” livery, in which the matt black of the fairings is combined with the matt carbon finish of the rims and wings, contrasting with the bright red accents and the brilliance of the exposed brushed aluminum tank. 1,103 cc Desmosedici Stradale of MotoGP origin, carbon fibre rims, Brembo Stylema R® brake calipers, MCS radial master cylinder, dry clutch, 520 chain, billet footpegs and a specific kit for track use: the “SP” technical specifications push to the maximum the racing characteristics of the Panigale V4 and accompany all the improvements made on the latest version.
Please note that the Panigale V4 SP2 is a MY23 option – available in dealerships beginning Q4 2022
The Panigale V4 SP2 is characterized by the special “Winter Test” livery, in which the matt black of the fairings is combined with the matt carbon finish of the rims and wings, contrasting with the bright red accents and the brilliance of the exposed brushed aluminum tank. The wings with double profile design are embellished with the Italian flag which also appears on the official Panigale V4 R SBK. The lower part of the fairing is distinguished by the presence of the Ducati Corse logo in the area of the new hot air extractors and by a red detail bearing the name of the bike, also present on the black saddle in double material.
The heart of the Panigale V4 SP2 is the 1,103 cc Desmosedici Stradale of MotoGP origin: a V4 with counter-rotating crankshaft equipped with a lot of torque from low revs and capable of expressing the racing soul of the bike on the track. For 2022, the Desmosedici Stradale has improved with the introduction of dedicated technical elements, which have made it possible to increase power and improve throttle response.
The chassis of the Panigale V4 SP2 includes an aluminum front frame that uses the Desmosedici Stradale as a stressed element. The aluminum swingarm and the seat post in shell-cast aluminum are directly connected to the engine. The pivot of the swingarm is positioned in such a way as to increase the anti-squat effect, which is the reduction of the sinking of the rear when exiting corners and when reopening the throttle, thus stabilizing the bike in acceleration. The suspension system features an electronically controlled 125 mm travel Öhlins NPX25 / 30 pressurized fork at the front that uses a pressurized cartridge damping system derived from that of racing forks.
To further enhance the performance on the track and the dynamic qualities of the Panigale V4, the “SP2” version is equipped with high-quality 5-split spoke carbon wheels, 3.1 lb lighter than the aluminum forged ones of the Panigale V4 S. The carbon rims* guarantee a significant reduction in inertia (-26% at the front, -46% at the rear) to the benefit of agility, lightness in direction changes and greater ease in closing the curves. The Panigale V4 SP2 is also equipped with exclusive Brembo Stylema R® front brake calipers, which guarantee high braking power.
