Ducati has delivered the first two units of their flagship superbike, the Ducati Panigale V4 R in India. The two units have been delivered by Ducati India’s dealer in Delhi NCR, North Star Automotive and will soon be seen in action at BIC, Greater Noida. Embodied with the maximum expression of Ducati values, racing-inspired livery, and Ducati’s racing DNA, the new Panigale V4 R is a symphony of emotions and the most powerful road-legal production motorcycle that money can buy.





The first two units of the Ducati Panigale V4 R have been delivered to Dr Aakash Rajshakha and Kulwant Singh and both of them were a part of Team #xBhpRacing and participated in the 1000cc and 600cc class of the 2018 JK Tyre National Racing Championship in 2018.



Sergi Canovas, Managing Director of Ducati India said, “We are very proud to deliver the first two units of the ultimate Panigale V4 R in India which is a testament to the success the brand has witnessed here. Panigale V4 R is the pinnacle of motorcycling. It’s the ultimate road-legal race bike, perfect to serve the growing interest of riders who’re riding on the racetrack and marks an important chapter in the superbike segment in India. With this, we welcome the riders to the Ducati family and are excited to witness the domination of the new Panigale V4 R at the racetracks in India.”

The Ducati Panigale V4 R is a road-legal WSBK category racing bike and constitutes the technical platform for the official Ducati Superbikes that competes in the 2019 season. The 1,103 cc 90° V4 engine has been replaced with the 998 cm3 Desmosedici Stradale R which brings it within the displacement limits established by WSBK championship rules.

The bike features a new fairing incorporating wings elements from MotoGP. It also has race-grade Öhlins suspension with mechanical adjustment and an aluminium swingarm with an adjustable four-position axle. Moreover, the front frame has been modified to achieve the stiffness targets set by Ducati Corse. Sophisticated electronic controls borrowed from the Panigale V4 S, have revised threshold levels now to make them more compatible with pro rider requirements.

Priced at INR 51,80,000 (Ex-Showroom), bookings for the new Ducati Panigale V4 R are open across all Ducati dealerships in Delhi – NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Kochi, Kolkata & Chennai.
