We have seen them in photos, in person and we know what the Ducati news of recent months sound like but what comes next is a test in Power bank With which we are delighted by the youtuber 650ib channel and in which they bring out the real performance of the Ducati Panigale V2 and Ducati Panigale V4 R.
On the one hand we have the most accessible version and on the other, in the case of the V4 R, the most expensive and capable flavor of the model. Without a doubt we are facing mounts of high performanceVery appreciated superbikes, as we were able to verify in this curious robbery, and that homologate a power and a torque with a clear difference in favor of the V4. Will it really be so different?
The Ducati Panigale V2 announces 155 hp and the V4 R version a total of 221 hp
A priori it may seem like a very unfair confrontationAlthough it is rather a question of how the 'smallest' of the Panigale is close to the performance figures of the Ducati Panigale V4 R, which was launched in 2018, just a year before the V2.
The 'largest' of these features the Desmosedici Stradale R engine with four V-cylinders and a displacement of 998cc, a heart of which is advertised a total power of 221 hp at 15,250 rpm and a maximum torque that reaches 112 Nm at 11,500 revolutions.
As for the Ducati Panigale V2, it incorporates the 955 cc Superquadro twin-cylinder block, with a power declared by those of Borgo Panigale from 155 hp at 10,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 104 Nm at 9,000 turns. Incidentally, the price of this mount is 18,490 euros and that its sister costs 39,900 euros, marking on the scale some weights in running order of 200 and 193 kg, respectively.
The entire Panigale family: Ducati Panigale V2, Ducati Panigale V4 and Ducati Panigale V4 R.
Thanks to the Ducati Detroit facilities and 650ib we have been able to see how data is finally obtained that shows a power transferred to the ground from 142 hp and 100 Nm torque from the Panigale V2, while the Panigale V4 R reaches up to 205 hp and 106 Nm. If you look closely, the rev counter of the minor stops at about 11,400 laps, while that of the V4 R continues to climb up to 15,500 rpm.
In the end, the distance between benefits both are cut a bit if we rely on the figures that have been extracted in this video. Anyway, we would stick with either of these two Italian beauties.
