  • Better ergonomics

  • Relatively left untouched V4 engine

  • Radical modifications on the gearbox

Ducati has again taken the market by storm by rolling out its improved and more powerful Panigale V4.

Never one to halt on its bays, Ducati has enriched its Panigale V4 with a hearty host of upgrades for the 2022 year model. The Bologna brand has uncovered routes to enhance the engine, gearbox, ergonomics, electronics, chassis, and aerodynamics on the standard and ‘S’ variants, following the most thorough update to the bike ever since its launch.

The monstrous 1103cc  Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine has been relatively left untouched while slight lubrication and exhaust system changes have occurred. Resultant, the peak power has uplifted from 214hp to 215.5hp while the torque slightly reduced by 0.4Nm to 123.6Nm.

The accessory Akrapovic exhaust system has also undergone some changes, now annulling higher up on the bike than the former belly design. As an outcome, the output figure of 228hp has been retained, but the sound level has stooped down from 109dB to 105dB. Besides, the sound can be decreased more to 102dB if a decibel killer is installed.

Likewise, radical modifications have been performed on the gearbox, which features taller first, second and sixth gears. The intention behind the modifications is to obtain more usable first gear, more often at leisurely speed corners on-track, while heaping the remaining gears closer to promote acceleration. The taller sixth gear carts a 5kph higher top speed, as per the company.

The automated support and maps have also been updated to facilitate these settings, and the Panigale V4 now features four power modes: full, high, medium and low. The Full offers the highest power in all gears besides first while lowering caps output at 150hp. The TFT dash has undergone a Track EVO mode which addresses the rev counter more prominently and also highlights what biker aids are being employed at any time.

Those mentioned above, higher top speed not only increases the power but also aids more efficient aerodynamics. The innovative winglets offer the corresponding downforce as earlier: 37kg at 300kph, but less drag. New exhaust vents are also cut into the lower fairing to assist heat management, particularly at high speeds.

The fork on the S variant is new, an Ohlins NPX 25/30 unit featuring 5mm more travel than before. While the rear shock and steering damper remains the same. It even gets a 4mm higher swingarm pivot to accommodate better anti-squat properties and enhance stability under acceleration.

That's not it! The bike even facilitates changes in its ergonomics by featuring a flatter seat and a different surface finish to make it grippier. The fuel tank has also been changed to enable the biker to better anchor themselves when braking.

Between going to pre-school and setting off for work every morning, my fascination for automobiles never ceased. Nothing excites me more than the sound of tyres screeching and engines revving.
