The Ducati Panigale V4 was spotted testing at the Valenica race track in Spain. Putting the motorcycle through its paces is none other than the two-time MotoGP world champion and Ducati tester, Casey Stoner.
The spy shots show Casey hooning the motorcycle around the track and pulling wheelies. The test bike seems to be the fully-loaded S variant, featuring top-drawer cycle parts. The Panigale V4 is the replacement for the 1299 Panigale, and will be the brand’s new halo superbike. Powered by the new Desmosedici Stradale 90-degree V4 engine which displaces 1103cc, the Panigale V4 will churn out a mind-boggling 210bhp and 120Nm of torque. The engine is an important milestone in Ducati’s history, with the company terming it as the ‘road-going version’ of the Desmosedici GP MotoGP race bike.
The Panigale V4 will debut at the 2017 EICMA Show in Milan, Italy, in November. We expect more details about the bike to be revealed as we get closer to the launch date.
