Ducati Panigale V4 Already In Production

Ducati has recently revealed the new Panigale V4 sportbike earlier this month at the 2017 EICMA Motorcycle Show and production has already begun at the Italian company’s factory in Borgo Panigale, Bologna, Italy.

There was much fanfare last Wednesday to commemorate the occasion, even CEO Claudio Domenicali and Plant Director Silvano Fini was on site to make a toast of Prosecco. Who can blame them for being so enthusiastic when the Panigale V4 is their first ever mass produced four-cylinder motorcycle.

Featuring a new 90-degree V4 engine, the new sportbike has a displacement of 1103cc and can crank out an impressive 214 horsepower at 13,000 rpm and 91.5 lb-ft at 10,000 rpm. What’s more, it has a power-to-weight ratio of 1.1 hp/kg.

If that’s not enough power for you, a specially tuned Akrapovic exhaust system can nudge an extra 12 ponies out of the engine.

Once order books are open, buyers have a choice of three V4 options; a standard model, S version, and the range topping Speciale. Prices range from $21,195 for the base version to an eye watering $39,995. Do note that Ducati will only be producing 1,500 of these so you may want to start buttering up that local dealership.

Production isn't really what takes the most time, it's transportation of said bikes to their owners. Only once have I looked at a shipping map for a car and the route they take looked so redundant and inefficient to me; backtracking and taking an indirect route.
