Ducati Panigale V2 was launched in August 2020 after some delays caused by the ongoing pandemic but all was okay when it did arrive – more powerful and looking even better than its predecessor Panigale 959. With design and styling based on the higher-spec Paniagle V4, the middleweight now boasts a single-sided swingarm and an underslung exhaust pipe. It gets a crisp 4.3-inch coloured TFT instrument cluster, three ride modes, three power modes, cornering ABS, traction control, wheelie control, engine brake control, bidirectional quickshifter and more.
Ducati Panigale V2 is powered by a 955cc Superquadro, twin-cylinder engine that powered by the Panigale 959 but now makes more power and torque. The engine now produces a maximum power output of 155 hp and torque is rated at 104 Nm. It gets a six-speed transmission unit with a bi-directional quickshifter as standard. The bike comes with three riding modes – Race, Sport and Street.
The monocoque airbox chassis has been upgraded with a new subframe. Suspension duties are taken care of by 43 mm Showa big-piston forks up front along with a Sachs rear monoshock. The V2 is currently priced at Rs 17,49,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
