Compared to the outgoing 1299 Panigale it's down in capacity by 182 cc but up 6 bhp in power, red lines 3,000 rpm higher and weighs 8 kg more.
The new V4 engine is only 2.2 kg heavier than the V-Twin in the 1299 but the new bike breaks ground by using the engine as part of the front frame to save weight and makes use of lighter Brembo calipers.
Controlled drift while braking is a new feature of the Bosch IMU system, which is basically cornering ABS on only the front wheel.
The 5-spoke 17" wheels take a Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP 120/70 tyre at the front and a huge 200/60 at the rear.
Accessories include the GPS/data logger and multimedia system.

Review In A Few

- Can get hot in traffic
- Eats tyres
2020: Ducati bought over a few bits from the V4 R. Specifically the wings and cooling gills, the lighter front frame and the Evo 2 traction control.
They also tweaked the suspension to be a tiny bit taller, improved the quickshifter and revised the engine mapping to make the first few gears smoother.
2021: Euro 5 compliant, new EVO 3 traction control, Race A / Race B modes, self bleeding clutch and brake master cylinders from the Superleggera and heated grips now an option.
