Ducati Panigale V4 2021 - Specs & Price in India
So Ducati Panigale V4 2021 has finally launched in India and here is its specifications and pricing in India.
2021 Ducati Panigale V4: engine and aero updates
But the new Panigale V4 features more than just emissions updates. Sure, the 1,103cc 90-degree V4 motor continues to produce 214hp and 124Nm, despite now meeting stricter emission norms, but in 2020, Ducati also threw winglets into the package. These were previously available only on the V4 R but have now trickled down to the standard V4 and V4 S models too.
2021 Ducati Panigale V4: chassis and suspension updates
In addition to this, in 2020, Ducati also tweaked the chassis and suspension setup, and made an attempt at friendlier power delivery to make the Panigale V4 slightly easier to ride. The 2021 update sees the bike run the latest generation of Ducati’s traction control system. Other small additions include self-bleeding clutch and brake master cylinders, and the provision for heated grips. While the 2020 Panigale V4 was never officially on sale in India, a few bikes were imported before the BS6 deadline last year for the strong-willed customers who asked for it.
2021 Ducati Panigale V4: variants
To justify its Rs 4.90 lakh premium, the ‘S’ variant differentiates itself by featuring electronically-controlled Ohlins suspension, a lithium-ion battery and forged-aluminium wheels. As a result, it tips the scales at 195kg. This makes it 3kg lighter than the standard V4, which features fully-adjustable Sachs suspension, a lead-acid battery and cast-alloy wheels.
2021 Ducati Panigale V4: competitors
The litre-class superbike market in India is rather small in the BS6 era, featuring only the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R (Rs 14.99 lakh) and BMW S 1000 RR (Rs 19.50 lakh onwards). Sure, the BMW M 1000 RR is on sale here, but it’s priced in a different league altogether. Bikes like the Suzuki Hayabusa (Rs 16.40 lakh) could also feature on the shopping list of someone looking for a Panigale V4.
