The Panigale V2 will be the first BS6-compliant bike from Ducati to launch India. The next BS6 offering in our market might either be the Panigale V4, the new Streetfighter V4 or the Multistrada 950, the latter one has already received its Euro 5/BS6 updates. It’s the successor to the 959 Panigale and is the so-called ‘entry-level superbike’ in the Ducati portfolio.
The bike has 955cc ‘L-twin’ motor as seen on the older bike but it’s now BS6 compliant while producing 155PS and 104Nm, an increment of 5PS and 2Nm. The monocoque chassis and the suspension hardware have also been carried forward on the new bike. Electronic goodies on the Panigale V2 has a new 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), cornering ABS, multi-level traction control, wheelie control, bi-directional quickshifter and engine brake control.
