The new Panigale V4 2021

Year after year, the Panigale V4 is renewed to become faster and more exciting on the track for both the amateur and the professional rider.


For 2021, the Panigale V4 and V4 S models become Euro 5 compliant (only for Markets where Euro 5 is applied), maintaining the maximum power and torque levels unchanged. To comply with the new European standard on polluting emissions, various refinements have been made to the Desmosedici Stradale exhaust line and to the engine calibration.


The electronic package that equips the Panigale V4 also evolves and now includes the latest generation Ducati Traction Control which is even more predictive: the DTC EVO 3 with a strategy derived from Ducati Corse.  


The Riding Mode strategy is also new; specifically, the Race Riding Mode has been split into two mappings that can now be freely compared in the individual parameters, allowing the rider to quickly compare two different configurations to define the best set-up based on the track and riding style.


The Panigale V4 and Panigale V4 S models are also equipped with new self-bleeding brake and clutch pumps derived from those used for the first time on the Superleggera V4.


Among the features added to the bike for 2021 is the chain guard fin, an important safety precaution that allows you to avoid dangerous contacts with the chain and crown in the event of a slide.  In addition, for those who use the bike all year round, there is now provision for heated grips, while the ignition key has a new, more modern and elegant grip.


Comparison test:

During the track tests Michele Pirro improved his best lap time by 0,4". The most surprising results came from non-professionals riders: a fast rider improved by 0.8", while an amateur was 1.3" faster, thus reducing his gap from the performance of a professional rider like Pirro.


The Panigale V4 2020 is easier to ride and more performant both on the single lap and on the overall time.

V engine

For Ducati, the V4 layout at 90° is the utmost expression of sportiness for a motorcycle engine. It is no coincidence that it is the same solution used in the MotoGP Desmosedici engines.

Compactness

Compared to a classic in-line four-cylinder, the lateral compactness of the V-engine allows greater centralisation of the masses and makes it possible to limit the weight on the front end of the bike. Furthermore, the shorter crankshaft generates a smaller gyroscopic effect. All these aspects have a positive impact on the bike\'s dynamics, helping to make it light and fast when changing directions.

Integration of engine and chassis

The optimal integration of engine and chassis is a fundamental concept behind every Ducati project. That is why the Desmosedici Stradale was developed to be mounted rotated backwards by 42°, like the Ducati MotoGP engines, to optimise weight distribution, use more extensive radiators and to shift the swinging arm pivot forwards as much as possible.

ABS Cornering EVO

The ABS system, equipped with the Cornering function to allow ABS intervention even with the bike leaned over, has been radically upgraded to introduce new intervention logic and control types.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2

The new Ducati Traction Control EVO 2 (DTC EVO 2) strategy is an offshoot of the Ducati Desmosedici GP18 and is already employed on the Panigale V4 R and V4 R SBK.

Ducati Slide Control (DSC)

The introduction of the 6D IMU has allowed Ducati Slide Control (DSC) - developed jointly with Ducati Corse - to be added to Ducati Traction Control EVO (DTC EVO).

Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO

The new Panigale V4 2020 is also equipped with the latest version of Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC EVO). Using the data feed from the 6D IMU, this system keeps wheelies in check while maximising acceleration easily and safely. DWC EVO provides more accurate wheelie readings; it thus exerts more precise control to ensure the bike responds faster to rider input.

Ducati Power Launch (DPL)

This 3-level system ensures lightning-fast starts, letting the rider focus on releasing the clutch. Once set, all the rider has to do is engage first gear and open the throttle.

Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) EVO 2

DQS EVO 2 with up/down function, developed for the new Panigale V4 2020, uses lean angle data to maximise bike stability when shifting gears through the bends.

Engine Brake Control (EBC) EVO

The EBC (Engine Brake Control) system was developed to help riders optimise bike stability under extreme turn-in conditions; it does so by balancing the forces applied to the rear tyre under severe Desmosedici Stradale engine braking conditions.

Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES) EVO

The new S version comes with Öhlins event-based electronic control; this uses the second-generation Öhlins Smart EC (Electronic Control) system that, in addition to exploiting the full potential of the IMU 6D, features the new, more user-friendly OBTi (Objective Based Tuning Interface).

Ducati Lap Timer GPS (DLT GPS)

The DLT GPS feature automatically records and saves lap times and displays them directly on the dashboard each time the bike crosses the finish line, the coordinates of which are set by pressing the flasher button.
