The Ducati World Premiere 2020 was a huge success as Ducati showcased its 2020 product range at the event. Held on October 23rd, it saw the presence of a large number of people who gathered to witness the new bikes. Out of the three brand-new motorcycles that were showcased, one was the Ducati Panigale V2!
The Panigale V2 gets its style from the mighty Panigale V4 and is a successor to the Panigale 959. We have zero doubts and complaints about the looks of the V2. It’s simply fabulous! Well, after all, it is an Italian bike.
Powering the new Panigale V2 is Ducati’s 995cc, Superquadro engine that produces 155 hp at 10,750 rpm and 104 Nm of torque at 9,000 rpm. However, Ducati says that the power delivery is very user-friendly and thus, the V2 would be a bike that beginners would find very easy to ride.
And if they don’t, there’s an extensive and sophisticated electronics package that includes cornering ABS, traction control, wheelie control, bi-directional quickshifter, engine brake control, and many other rider aids. All this can be explored on the new TFT dash.
To keep the Panigale V2 as compact as possible, Ducati slapped on exhaust with extremely compact under-engine silencer and single-side tailpipe.
Do you think the Panigale V2 would prove to be a good amateur’s bike?
