At the Ducati World Premiere, the Borgo Panigale brand presented the new bikes ready for next season
Finally, Ducati fans had the opportunity to see their favorite manufacture’s new bikes at the 2020 Ducati World Premiere. The event took place at the Rimini Conference Center and was also broadcast in streaming on the brand official channels. Claudio Domenicali, Ducati’s CEO, hosted it at the presence of the company’s top management. However, the new bikes that will be available next season, Ducati unveiled the new Panigale V2 and the highly anticipated Ducati Streetfighter V4/S.
The Multistrada 1260 family received a new lux trim package aptly named the Grand Tour. While other models such as the Diavel and Scrambler received additional color options.
The Panigale V2, the heir of the Panigale 959, is a new ‘small’ Panigale. The mid-size superbike faithfully reproduces the aesthetics of its larger sister. It also reintroduces in this segment the single-sided swingarm, an icon of the sports production of the brand. However, its cornering Abs and top-level electronics prove the great attention paid to safety and road usability. The engine is an evolution of the 995 cc Superquadro that in this case delivers 155 horses.
The most awaited launch was that of the Streetfighter V4, an unrivaled naked bristling with cutting-edge technology. In short, it is a Panigale V4, stripped of its fairings and with high, wide handlebars. From the four-cylinder supersport, it inherits the engine, the Desmosedici Stradale based on the experience gained by Ducati in MotoGP.
On the Streetfighter V4, this engine is configurated to deliver 208 horses, which increase to 220 with the Akrapovic track-only kit. It will come in two versions, the standard and the S (with Ohlins electronic suspensions), which will be sold for € 19,990 and € 22,990 respectively.
