Linked to a six-speed gearbox, the motor makes 211bhp of power at 13,000rpm and 124Nm of peak torque at 9,500rpm. The gearbox benefits from a bidirectional quickshifter. The exhaust on the BS6 model uses larger catalysts (+10mm in length) and packs a new technology of impregnation of noble metals. This is aimed at eliminating any loss of power during the BS6 transition.
In terms of design, the BS6-compliant Panigale V4 range looks similar to its predecessor. The new model, however, benefits from an aerodynamic package that is claimed to deliver 30kg of downforce at 270kmph. The 2021 model also benefits from a chain guard fin, a provision for heated grips, a new grip for the ignition key, and new self-bleeding brake and clutch pumps that were first used on the Superleggera V4.
The suspension setup on the S variant comprises electronically-adjustable Ohlins shock absorbers while the standard model uses manually-adjustable Showa front forks and Sachs rear mono-shock. The braking hardware is similar on both variants and the anchoring power comes from twin 330mm discs with Brembo Monobloc Stylema (M4.30) four-piston callipers at the front and a single 245mm rotor with two-piston callipers at the front.
