Ducati working on a smaller Panigale V4? Test mule spotted

- Test mule spotted overseas

- Gets the same design as the current V4

- Could be the updated V4R for homologation

Apart from the Diavel V4, Ducati’s upcoming Panigale V4R has also been spotted testing now. Its spy shots reveal some crucial data that cement our thoughts about it being the new Panigale V4R. 

The test mule’s design looks identical to the current Panigale V4. It has the same split LED headlights, sharp tail and winglets at the front. The fairing gets ducts for ventilation with the engine partially exposed. That said, Ducati will manufacture the V4R only for homologation purposes and in a limited number.

Similar to the previous model, the updated V4R could be powered by a 998cc V4 liquid-cooled motor mated to a six-speed gearbox. The output could be around 220bhp and 112Nm. The test mule is also equipped with an Akrapovic exhaust system, hinting that it could be offered as a standard fitment. 

The test mule features Ducati’s 1977 logo on its all black fairing and gets a silver fuel tank too. It could be equipped with the same Ohlins suspension and roll-on aluminum alloys from Marchesini. The braking hardware could be better than what we see on the standard Panigale series.

Ducati could reveal it in the World Premiere Series along with the recently spotted Diavel V4 and 5 other new bikes. We expect it to be launched sometime next year with a few units allotted for the Indian market.
