On April 30, 2020, Ducati Panigale V4 R, a SBK racing car that complies with road registration regulations and is allowed to go on the road, has been competing in WSBK since the 2019 season and has repeatedly achieved good results. The champion model was officially launched.
Ducati Panigale V4 R embodies Ducati’s car-making philosophy to the greatest extent: Italian-style design, fine craftsmanship, and excellent performance. This is the best expression of Ducati racing DNA. This forward-looking and one-of-a-kind original racing car stimulates riders to improve their skills with extremely high limits. Thanks to the electronic assistance system like an invisible magic safety net, the Panigale V4 R can exert the most stable and amazing power no matter the corner or the straight line.
Ducati Panigale V4 R is designed to elicit a symphony of emotions, thanks also to the return of the dry clutch, the Panigale V4 R changes the concept of performance: creating extreme power without sacrificing safety and riding convenience , braking ability and best lap time.
The Desmosedici Stradale R engine further improves the engine response speed to ensure the most timely acceleration. The engine responds more quickly to throttle commands and bursts out to a maximum of 234 HP in an instant. (Assembly track kit)
The Ducati Panigale V4 R’s aerodynamic package includes: windshield, headlight fairing and side fairings to reduce air resistance. The forced airflow of the side fins on the side version provides sufficient cooling for the engine under high-intensity operation. And a lowered carbon fiber aero kit for the GP16 for increased stability. And during the riding process, such an excellent aerodynamic design will reduce the intervention of electronic assistance and enhance the rider’s confidence, so that the rider will be more confident in driving and accelerating. The swingarm also has an adjustable pivot in four positions.
Developed in collaboration with Ducati Corse engineers, the Panigale V4R has an optimized front frame design and is equipped with a race-ready Öhlins suspension system to maximize vehicle dynamics. New preload-adjustable forks and swingarm with four-position adjustable pins deliver ultimate track performance.
The Ducati Panigale V4 R is equipped with the latest generation of Ducati Electronic Control System, based on a 6-axis inertial platform from Bosch (6D IMU – Inertial Measurement Unit) to manage all driving phases. The pit lane speed limiter was first used on a motorcycle, limiting the speed when riding in the pit lane.
For a race car where the only thing that matters is maximizing performance, the Panigale V4 R is equipped with a dry clutch and has a clear advantage. The Panigale V4 R is equipped with an STM EVO-SBK clutch made from billet aluminum with a housing and 48-tooth plate pack. The dry clutch offers considerable advantages in track use, especially during the most violent downshifts, allowing for a more efficient slip function and a more immediate and direct power delivery during all kick-off phases. In addition, the engine braking effect can also be adjusted via the clutch structure. Since the assistance of engine oil is not required, the wear of the clutch will not affect the quality of the engine oil in the engine. Wear dust from the clutch plates does not flow back into the engine lubrication circuit. So as to ensure the stable operation of the engine under extreme conditions.
