The Panigale V4 SP2 dons the same attire as the standard model but is draped in a new paint scheme christened as the Winter Test livery. It comprises matte black base, brushed aluminum fuel tank, and red accents.
Ducati has plonked the same 1,103cc, Desmosedici Stradale V4 motor in the SP2 trim. It develops 210bhp and 130Nm in the stock form but if you slap on the full-titanium Akrapovic system, the SP2 gets some more juice and the power bumps up to 228bhp. Not to mention, it also helps the Panigale V4 SP2 lose about 4.9kg of mass.
Ducati has also thrown in the STM-EVO SBK dry clutch with anti-hopping function for aggressive downshifts. If you want to indulge into the mechanical audio symphony of it, Ducati will also offer the track kit consisting of an open carbon clutch cover.
On the feature front, it’s equipped with riding modes, power modes, cornering ABS, traction control, wheelie control, slide control, engine brake control, launch control and a bunch of more electronic nannies to keep you safe out there.
Shedding some more weight, the Panigale V4 SP2 rolls on 5-spoke carbon wheels. These help to shave another 1.4kg compared to the forged aluminum ones that the standard and the S models use. While that may not sound a lot, the inertia is reduced by 26 per cent at the front and 46 at the rear.
The engine is nestled in an aluminum front frame supported by an aluminum swingarm. Furthermore, the suspension setup consists of a Öhlins NPX 25/30 front forks and a TTX36 rear shock. It even benefits from a steering damper with Öhlins’ Smart EC 2.0 system.
Dropping the anchor is a pair of 330mm front discs bit by Brembo Stylema R calipers and a 245mm rear disc with dual-channel ABS.
Asking price for the 2022 Ducati Panigale V4 SP2 is set to USD 39,500 (approximately Rs 30 lakh excluding the taxes).
