Pros and Cons in comparison

Ducati Panigale V2 2020

Ducati Panigale V2 2020

For us, the Panigale V2 is the ultimate road super sports bike. Sophisticated electronic assistance systems that leave nothing to be desired, Ducati's fun 955 cm³ two-cylinder Superquadro engine that generates more than enough power for the road with 155 hp, a great seating position and a high degree of controllability. All of this characterises the Panigale V2 and for this reason it is probably "the" country road supersports bike for us at the moment, but it also cuts a good figure on the racetrack. The Panigale V2 should appeal above all to pilots for whom 200 hp rockets are a bit too much, and to all those who have also been enchanted by this work of art on two wheels.

Beautiful and noble design - ensures many open mouths!

Outstanding electronics package ensures a lot of safety and fun in traffic

Engine, ergonomics & electronics make the machine incredibly "experienceable"!

A real insider tip for supersport beginners and returners

Just the right measure of many things, engine power, chassis, ergonomics.

Compared to other engines of this size, it would still have been nice to have one/two more horses, but there are no really comparable current alternatives to the V2

"Only" in Race mode does it show its true potential

Ducati SuperSport S 2017

Ducati SuperSport S 2017

The Ducati Supersport S is the choice if you want to go to the race track more often. The fully adjustable Öhlins suspension is not only a visual hit, but also does its job superbly. The built-in quickshifter with blipper function is also a must-have. Even inexperienced race track riders will quickly feel at home on the Supersport S and have a lot of fun with it.
