In terms of rider assistance systems, both bikes are equipped with ABS.

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

no water temperature display in degrees

Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory 2019

Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory 2019

The fact that the Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory is new can be seen in the displacement - the increase to 1077 cubic metres means that a massive 217 hp and 122 Newton metres of torque are now available. This makes the RSV4 one of the strongest on the racetrack, but also a superior country road fighter. In all other respects, such as chassis, suspension and geometry, the Factory version with Öhlins suspension elements embodies the racing idea in a really serious way. Even the cool winglets on the side are no joke, but derived directly from the RS-GP MotoGP bike. The rest of the design is old, but certainly not boring.

Superb engine

brilliant sound

brutal brakes

Öhlins suspension

full electronics package

automatic gearshift with blipper

sporty ergonomics

cool winglets.

Little torque in the rev range

too much information for the too small colour TFT display
