The new Ducati Panigale V4 R was presented in the fourth chapter of the Ducati World Première web series. A bike that confirms the intention of providing technological and refined solutions to enthusiasts.
His presence is imposing, thanks in part to the carbon wings and a decoration inspired by Moto GP. Your engine is new. Desmosedici Stradale R 998cc capable of reaching a maximum of 16,500 rpm in sixth gear and a maximum power of 218 hp at 15,500 rpm.
All the potential of the engine that it integrates is expressed on the track thanks to its racing exhaust that allows it to reach 237 CV, 3 CV more than its predecessor.
Special oil for Paginale V4 R
The new engine implied the creation of a new special oil developed by Shell and Ducati Corse. This is responsible for offering 10% less mechanical friction and an increase of 3.5 CV, which rises to 4.5 with the limiter.
Mention that it is the first time they are used titanium “gun drilled” connecting rods on a motorcycle that are drilled along the connecting rod, which allows the passage of oil from the head to the bottom of it. The result is better lubrication and reliability in extreme conditions.
The pistons of the Desmosedici Stradale R have a skirt characterized by the DLC surface treatment, a treatment used in Moto GP and F1, which reduces piston friction.
Returning to performance, the Panigale V4 R adopts the same field relationships that use the motorcycles of Superbike World Championship, which translates into better mill management and better acceleration when exiting corners.
Power Mode Full allows the engine to express its full potential
To exploit the performance of the Panigale V4 R in the race, the Power Mode logic has been adapted, with dedicated engine calibrations Desmosedici Stradale R.

There are four strategies: Full, High, Medium and Low. Full and Low with a new design, while the High and Medium configurations have been updated. Power Mode Full allows the engine to reach its maximum potential with unfiltered torque curves.
On the other hand, for Power Modes High and Medium there is a new Ride By Wire map management system with specific calibration for each gear
Lastly, Power Mode Low was designed for riding on roads or surfaces with low grip, offering specifically manageable throttle response.
The Panigale V4 R offers better temperature management
There is an update of the electric fan control strategy, now capable of offering a better temperature management, as well as reducing typical heat build-up when track sessions conclude.
In the quest to improve the rider’s feel when opening and operating the throttle, a new, more compact throttle has been adopted that minimizes radial and axial play. Finally, as in the racing bikes, it integrates a Pit Limiter to limit the speed at the exit and entrance of the pit lane.
The new one Ducati Panigale V4R It will only be available in the competition red paint. His arrival is scheduled for 2023 and his price is at the WSBK limit: €44,000.
