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 Panigale V4 S 2021

Ducati Panigale V4 S 2021

There are hardly any real weaknesses left in the current Super Bikes anyway. Who gets along better with which motorbike now depends more on personal preferences than on pure data. By further improving the rideability, the Panigale can certainly score points with more and more riders. The latest update of the Panigale V4S, however, brings some advantages in terms of racetrack use and, not least due to the diverse setting options, probably enables many riders to improve their lap times compared to the predecessor. But how much depends largely on the rider!

More power for 2022

better controllability

tuning of chassis components

ergonomics

changed gearbox tuning.

Brake somewhat spongy
