Ducati expands the Panigale V4 family by introducing the new numbered Panigale V4 SP version, which certifies the return after many years of the initials “SP” (Sport Production) on the fairing of a Ducati super sports bike.
Introduced for the first time on the legendary Ducati 851, this abbreviation identified the versions that formed the basis for the development of the racing bikes used in the Sport Production Championship, precursor of the current Superstock.
Even today, in Ducati, the acronym “SP” is used to recognize a production bike with specific technical equipment that makes it faster on the track.
The new Panigale V4 SP also stands out for being equipped with contents derived from the Superleggera V4, such as the lightweight 5-spoke carbon wheels, the exclusive Brembo Stylema R® front brake calipers and the Brembo front brake pump with MCS (Multiple Click System) and “remote adjusting” device. In addition: the steering head machined from billet which shows the progressive number of the bike and the adjustable rider footpegs in billet aluminum with carbon heel guards.
Standard V4 SP equipment includes: Ducati Power Launch (DPL), Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down EVO 2, Full LED lighting with Daytime Running Light (DRL), Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES) EVO with Öhlins suspension and steering damper, Quick adjustment buttons, Lithium-ion battery, Auto-off indicators, Racing style handle grips, Chain guard, Carbon fiber wheels, Carbon fiber front mudguard, Wings in carbon fiber, Adjustable rider footpegs in aluminum with heel guard in carbon fiber, Billet aluminum steering stem with bike number.
