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 2020

Ducati Panigale V4 2020

The conclusion is very easy for me. Ducati has made an "already almost perfect motorbike" even better without changing anything in a negative way. Although riding on the road with this radical fairing probably causes a stir and one or two riders find it uncomfortable, they obviously feel more comfortable with it on the race track. You get a motorbike "out of the box" that resembles a Superbike World Championship bike more than ever. I also believe that the V4 2018 owner is quite capable of improving his lap times with the 2020 version. My tip: if you take care to enlarge the tank or make it more grippy, you could go over the centre even more with your hull.

Clever electronics

Noticeable upgrade to last year's model

More accessible than ever before

Tank is too small from an ergonomic point of view

straight-line driving from 250km/h in the wet
