Ducati India has released the new Panigale V2 superbike starting at Rs 16.99 lakh (ex-showroom). It has the upgraded 955cc twin-cylinder superquadro engine with BS 6 compliance and an updated electronics suite. Panigale V2 develops 157 PS of maximum power and 104 Nm peak torque. This means it makes 5 PS more power and 2 Nm more torque than its predecessor due to new injectors (larger in size with a different working angle) and a more efficient snorkel which minimizes pressure loss. The V2 also features a new compact exhaust, routed entirely underneath the engine giving a clean look to the beautiful lines of the youngest member of the Panigale superbike family.
Panigale V2 features a single-sided aluminium swingarm and a refined monocoque frame. Bipul Chandra, Managing Director of Ducati India said, “With the entry of Panigale V2, we bring a model in the family that looks and feels more accessible while delivering the true Ducati experience. The Panigale V2 is our first BS6 motorcycle for 2020 and has received tremendous customer response with overwhelming consumer engagement. Needless to say, we are eager to see riders unleashing this beautiful beast on the street and the racetrack, to set a new paradigm in the super mid category.”
Boasting of the cutting-edge electronics package, it features the latest generation electronics suite based on a 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit that instantly detects the bike's roll, yaw, and pitch angles. It Includes Cornering ABS EVO, Ducati Traction Control EVO 2, Ducati Quick Shift EVO 2, Ducati Wheelie Control EVO, Engine Braking Control EVO and all these electronics never leave the rider in any doubt that the Panigale V2 is a thoroughbred Ducati which raises the active safety and dynamic control standards on the motorcycle.
