Ever since it was first showcased at EICMA 2019, the Ducati Panigale V2 has piqued everyone’s interest, and now it’s finally here. The Panigale V2 is Ducati’s first BS6-compliant motorcycle to go on sale and comes to India as a CBU manufactured at Ducati’s plant in Thailand.
For starters, the Panigale V2 is powered by a 955cc superquadro L-twin engine producing 153 bhp@10750 rpm and peak torque of 10.6 kgm@9000 rpm. This is the same engine that was used in the Panigale 959 with a slight bump in performance.
The Panigale V2 also gets an updated exhaust, which now sits directly under the engine, a die-cast aluminium single-sided swingarm with a Sachs mono-shock at the rear and a 43 mm adjustable Showa fork up front. On the electronics front, it gets goodies like cornering ABS, traction control and a bi-directional quick shifter.
To help you keep a track of the electronic riding assists there’s a new 4.3-inch TFT colour display. The V2 will come shod with grippy Pirelli Diablo SuperCorsa SP rubber and stopping power comes from Brembo M50 Monoblocs.
