Steering geometry is 24.5 degrees of rake and 3.9 inches of trail. Ducati announced a curb weight of 430 pounds. Seat height is 32.6 inches, and Pirelli provides Diablo Supercorsa SP radials in 120/70-17 front and 200/60-17 rear sizes.
Suspension comprises a Showa 43mm inverted fork and a cantilevered Sachs shock, both of which are fully adjustable for preload and damping. Brembo supplies the front brakes, twin 330mm rotors, and latest Stylema four-piston calipers.
Panigale V4 S adds Öhlins suspension front and rear, forged aluminum wheels, and a lightweight lithium-ion battery. In addition, the triple clamps are machined from billet, the seat is trimmed in Alcantara, and the front and rear fenders are carbon fiber.
Said to weigh just 5 pounds more than a Panigale 1299 V-twin, the V-4 produces 214 claimed peak horsepower, which translates to a 2 pound/horsepower weight-to-power ratio. Ducati offers an Akrapovic titanium racing exhaust that boosts horsepower to a whopping 226.
Bore is 81mm and stroke is 53.5mm. Connecting rods measure 101.8mm from center to center—a respectable rod-length-to-stroke ratio. Oiling is via semi-dry sump with four pumps, two for maximum crankcase-scavenging capability.
Induction is by variable-length oval runners featuring area corresponding to that of 52mm round units. Valves diameters are 34mm intake and 27.5mm exhaust. Compression ratio is a 14:1, confirming the efficiency of the thermodynamic section.
Complementing the latest TFT instrumentation, Ducati Data Analyzer, and Ducati Multimedia System, the Panigale V4 has one of the most advanced electronics suite in the industry: ABS Cornering Bosch EVO, Ducati Traction Control EVO, Ducati Slide Control, Ducati Wheelie Control EVO, Ducati Power Launch, Ducati Quick Shift EVO, Engine Brake Control EVO, and Ducati Electronic Suspension EVO.
