Ducati celebrates the world titles of Bagnaia and Bautista with 2 Limited Edition of Panigale V4
Ducati is celebrating the double victory of the MotoGP and WorldSBK titles conquered by Francesco Bagnaia and Álvaro Bautista, respectively, by creating 2 Limited Edition of Panigale V4 bikes inspired by the Desmosedici GP and Panigale V4 R.
The company unveiled their new motorcycles during a press event they hosted to remember the “Campioni in Piazza2” event that commemorated Ducati’s achievements this year.
The two special series, made on the base of the Panigale V4 S, will feature the liveries of the bikes of Pecco Bagnaia #63 and Álvaro Bautista #19. All these motorcycles will be hand-signed by their respective riders and sealed with a layer of shiny varnish.
The two limited edition motorcycles will have only 260 numbered and limited series, to celebrate their name in the number of 1926. In other words, it was at this time that there were founded the company.
Like the race bikes they are inspired by, the Panigale V4 2022 World Champion Replica bikes are offered in single-seat configuration only and are enhanced by the billet aluminum upper clamp with laser engraving of the model name and progressive number.
The technical equipment boasts the adoption of the nine-disc STM-EVO SBK dry clutch, Akrapovič street-legal silencer (2 kg lighter than the Panigale V4’s stock unit), Brembo braking system enhanced by Stylema® R calipers and MCS master cylinder with remote adjuster, Rizoma billet aluminum adjustable footpegs and racing plexiglass.
Other technical details that characterize these special bikes are the rear exhaust manifold heat shield, alternator cover, front and rear fenders, and front brake ducts, all made of carbon fiber.
Also made of carbon fiber, combined with titanium, is the cover protecting the single-sided swingarm. Finally, the series dedicated to Álvaro Bautista #19 features the brushed aluminum tank found on the more refined versions of the Panigale V4.
Each bike will be delivered in a packing case with dedicated graphics and will come with a certificate of authenticity, a custom bike cover and the Ducati Data Analyser+ data acquisition system.
Those who want to take advantage of the performance of these two motorcycles on the circuit will be able to mount the additional accessories provided, such as the carbon fiber open clutch cover, license plate and mirror removal kits and the billet aluminum racing fuel cap.
