        The latest Ducati to receive a revamp for next year is the Panigale V4: the brand’s signature superbike and WSBK racing platform. This Italian stallion gets an all-around refresh, specifically in the engine, ergonomics, electronics, and aerodynamics.

        The updates to the 1,103cc V4 engine are interesting—it now makes an additional 1.5hp for a total peak figure of 212hp at 13,000rpm. The EU version has even more power with a 215hp peak output. Supplementing the little power boost are revised gearing ratios that promise better useability at low speeds, as well as a higher top speed.

        Ducati engineers wanted to make the V4 easier to use on the street, which resulted in four power modes: Full, High, Medium, and Low. Low mode seeks to tame the race machine for road use, by softening throttle response a bit and bringing power down to a still respectable 150hp

        To make the most of these streetability changes, the Panigale’s seat and tank have been tweaked to allow the rider to hold onto the bike better, as well as reduce the amount of physical effort required to ride. Other changes to the body include more efficient aerodynamics that provide the same amount of downforce, while sending more air to cool down the engine.

        A new Öhlins NPX 25/30 semi-active fork gives better comfort, road bump absorption, and increased handling prowess. At the rear, suspension componentry is still the same, save for the swingarm pivot point that has been moved 4mm higher for a better anti-squat effect.

        The dash has also been redesigned for easier reading, and has been given a new Track Evo layout and an SBK style shift indicator for all you track junkies out there.

        The 2022 Panigale V4 and V4 S will be available starting December. Prices start at $23,295 or about P1,175,000 for the V4, and $29,995 or approximately P1.5 million for the V4 S.
