What’s the DESIGN of 2022 Ducati Panigale V4

The perfect blend of style and power. The brand new Panigale V2 Is a beefy yet compact bike with a simple design with clear lines that transmit powerful power without compromising the traditional Ducati Superbike style.

2022 Ducati Panigale V4 Design

 

Panigale V2 Panigale V2 features the single-sided aluminium swingarm, the standard of all high-end sports Ducati. The large fairing showcases the smaller Superquadro twin-cylinder engine (smaller compared to that of the Desmosedici Stradale), which creates the appearance of a smaller bike and is more streamlined compared to that of the Panigale V4.

 

Power and Torque of 2022 Ducati Panigale V4

Ducati hasn’t re-invented the wheel. After all, it’s difficult to improve an engine that’s already at the top of its class; however, they’ve been able to squeeze an extra bit of horsepower from the Desmosedici Stradale V4. A new oil pump, as well as an oil circuit, has reduced power loss.

 

Along with minor improvements in the exhaust, the 2022 model has more than 1.5hp and is currently 215.5hp (158.5kw) at 13,000rpm. In addition, with more over-rev, it produces 2.5hp more than it was at 14500rpm.

 

The torque-wise, the V4 offers 123.6Nm/91.2lb-ft at 9,500rpm, and an 80percent of that number is delivered at 6000rpm. The peak output is lower than the previous variant (124Nm/91.5 lb-ft); however, if you notice the difference, you ought to consider a position as a Ducati test driver.

 

The most significant change is in the transmission. Ducati has released a new gearbox, which has a lengthier 1 1st (11.6 per cent) as well as a 2 2nd (5.6 per cent) gear, as well as the longer 6 7 gear (1.8 per cent).

The new ratios are more race-oriented, allowing riders to choose 1 1st gear when corners are slower and improve engine acceleration and braking. The more imposing six 6 gear allows for an increase of 5kph in top speed and the road and could at least reduce the rpm a bit while touring should you choose to.

 

Engine

There are four power maps that you can select from among the four riding modes. Low limits the power output to 150bhp (like the Panigale V2) in the wet. And to ensure the most controllable power delivery in dry conditions, ‘Medium’ and High are both fully powered and have specific mapping for every gear, which is a first for an all-road bike.

 

They provide a calm and serene experience to the Ducati; however, there’s the disco “Full” power mode for unbridled fun in all gears, except first enjoyable.

2022 Ducati Panigale V4 Engine

However, it’s not always speedy when you’re playing your best. The new dash graphics have an easier-to-read track display derivative of the Superleggera V4. Superleggera V4.

 

Its MotoGP-inspired masterpiece 1103cc 90-degree V4 Desmo engine is unaltered and extremely powerful. It comes with a counter-rotating crank with a twin pulse firing order stuffed with non-obtained.

 

There’s an oil pump that’s been upgraded, and its tailpipes underslung are 18% more powerful (up between 35mm and 38mm) to decrease backpressure and boost power. It’s also said to release 2bhp more power at the crank.

 

Despite the enormous power of the new map, it eliminates its sting, particularly in the gears lower. The extra slots in the sides and under the belly pan let out hot air from the motor and help ensure that the speed shifter stays cool.

 

A new set of 1. 1st/2 2nd/6 1st/2nd/6th gear ratios, resembling Ducati’s WSB racer to recoup the Panigale’s aggressiveness from slow corners and assist in getting it to more speed at the top. First is higher by 11.6 per cent, making it more efficient to use the lowest gear to stop the bike for hairpins and help it accelerate more quickly in the exit.

Second gear being lengthened by 5.6 per cent, it’s close to the first and third gears and helps keep the V4 hot while you smoothly shift through the gearbox. Sixth gear is 1.8 per cent longer than Ducati claims will increase speeds by 3mph.

 

DESMODROMIC SYSTEM of 2022 Ducati Panigale V4

The engine’s new design is built around the Desmodromic technology, making Ducati the most efficient prototype of the most competitive class of motorcycle racing.

 

This high-rotation engine “Desmo” achieves its maximum technological value, achieving levels of efficiency, precision, and lightness previously unattainable on the road by Ducati.

 

CRANKSHAFT

On on-street bikes, the crankshaft is rotated in the same direction that wheels. Contrarily when racing in MotoGP, the counter-rotating crankshaft, which is rotated around the other side, is widely utilized.

 

It is believed that the Desmosedici Stradale has borrowed this technique to counter some of the gyroscopic effects caused by the wheels making the bike more responsive and precise in changing directions.

 

Counter-rotating crankshafts also produce an inertial torque that causes the front end to accelerate and raises the rear end during braking, reducing the wheelie effect.

2022 Ducati Panigale V4 Verdict

Making improvements to a great bike was a difficult task, and I discovered only a few flaws in the previous V4S (on tracks). However, Ducati hasn’t only made the new bike faster on the track.

 

Still, it’s also easier and more accessible to handle, especially for those who haven’t had the opportunity to race at the highest level. The new design, ergonomics, suspension, braking and aerodynamics, and electronics all come together to make the Panigale more pliable than before.

 

Ducati hasn’t altered an established formula. That’s why the engine and appearance are identical, and the brakes are mechanically similar. The thing that wasn’t broken was not fixed.

 

Ducati’s new features allow you to increase your speed and last longer. Even after a day at Jerez, I didn’t feel tired. Additionally, the ease of use will translate to road travel; however, we’ll need to wait and watch this.

 

The most sought-after production bike has just become better. It’s a stunning poster bike to 2022. It’s race-bike-like on the track and off, but you don’t need to be a professional to appreciate.

ELECTRONICS

2022 Ducati Panigale V4 features modern electronics built on a six-axis inertial platform that instantly determines its roll, yaw, and pitch angles.

The latest electronics package increases the standard for active safety and dynamic control by adding the cornering feature to the ABS and enhancing the quick shift to ensure it covers down-changes, traction control, and engine brake control.

As you’d expect that all controls are included in the three Riding Modes (Race, Sport, Street) and can be changed through the brand new 4.3″ TFT colour display. It features a user-friendly graphic interface. Browsing menus, changing settings and identifying the Riding Mode could not be simpler.
