Ducati World Premiere: Episode 5, “Evolution of Speed”

Supersport Queen gets a new software system

Ducati Provided the latest track beasts to consider. And not only is the ride quality more accessible and intuitive at all levels, but it also promises to boast better lap times.

Features “The most important development since the company was founded” Ducati 2022 Panigale V4 When V4 S Now compliant with Euro-5, major updates have been made in the electronics sector, with basically everything adjusted, including aerodynamic ergonomics, engines and chassis.

It is also said to Ducati Hit the Panigale V4S on the truck For the 2021 model, we put their money where they had their mouth by letting the new unit speak for itself.

She said okay.Press release tells us that “The first tester improved the best lap on the new 2022 Panigale V4S by 0.9 seconds and the second tester by 1.2 seconds, but the Panigale Piro was 0.5 seconds faster and lapped in just 3 seconds from the best time in Race 1 at Barrelunga. At last year’s Italian Superbike Championship, he raced on a high-performance SCX compound. “

Let’s dig into the new spec docket.

Chassis and aerodynamics

Ducati's new 2022 Panigale V4 and V4S: Ergonomic Panigale on-track racers

It seems that the bodywork has been slightly updated in a press release stating that Ducati engineers have made some adjustments to improve the cooling system of the Panigale V4 in 2022 and revamped the extraction socket.

Machines are also sports “More efficient, more compact and thinner double-profile design wings: This update guarantees the same vertical load, up to 81 pounds at 186 mph (37 kg at 300 km / h)... ”

All of these are secured to the essential aluminum frame, and as usual, the engine is a stressed component to improve maneuverability.

The new seat and tank surface assist the rider by allowing for better grip, and the new redesigned tank shape secures the rider more comfortably when braking.

“Thanks to these new ergonomics, the rider is fully integrated into the bike, which makes it more comfortable for general riding. It also enhances the contact area of ​​the arm when leaning completely outward on the curve. I did. “

Most of my homework is recorded here.

The gearbox ratio has been significantly adjusted, and it is said that the 1st, 2nd and 6th gears are longer. 1st gear was extended by 11.6%, 2nd gear was extended by 5.6%, and 6th gear was extended by 1.8%. “Because the speed jump between the first two ratios is small, DQS with the new calibration works more effectively and improves performance …[to] Work on the tightest corners in 1st gear to improve engine braking and acceleration from the corners. “

The reason for the long 6th gear is simple enough. The gears are long, the bike is fast and ready to use (it is said to be better than the 2021 model variations).

Ducati has also introduced a new torque management strategy with dedicated mapping, deploying the iconic Desmosedici Stradale engine in a way of 210hp @ 12,500rpm, 90.6lb-ft torque @ 11,000rpm. Equipment…

However, the biggest benefit must be in power mode.

At the 2022 Panigale, Ducati provided us with a total of four engine configurations: full, high, medium and low.

The Panigale V4 always had high, medium and low power modes, but the full power mode is said to boast the concept of “torque curve without electronic filter except 1st gear”.

High power and medium power modes have also been tuned, and thanks to the new Ride by Wire map management system, “the rider is guaranteed to have optimal thrust at all times when opening the throttle.”

Low power mode now reduces the bike’s potential by 60hp and allows for smooth throttle response when drilling twisties on track days.

To complement all of this, the Ducati Performance Catalog includes a racing exhaust system. “We provide everyone with the opportunity to ride a full racing exhaust, even on circuits with strict noise restrictions.”

“A new, entirely titanium DP3 exhaust system developed in collaboration with Akrapovič is available, which is within the 105 dB noise limit (102 dB with the dB killer installed). The new exhaust is Equipped with a high silencer next to the tail, it guarantees an output increase of 18 hp, a maximum of 228 hp, a maximum torque of 96.6 lb-ft (131 Nm) and a reduction in overall weight. . 11 lbs (5 kg). “

“This new exhaust is added to the more compact full racing version already available in the catalog. It is made entirely of titanium by Akrapovič, which extends under the engine and reduces weight by 13.2 pounds at the same performance level. At (6kg), the noise level is 109 dB, but with the dB killer installed, it drops to 107 dB. “

The state-of-the-art package used for the 2022 Panigale V4 is “based on the use of a 6-axis inertial platform that can instantly detect the roll, yaw and pitch angles of a motorcycle in space.”

This includes controls for managing four riding modes: Race A, Race B, Sport and Street.

Ducati also gave us a new dash with a “track evo”-an information mode developed by MotoGP Rider’s suggestion to work with existing road and track settings.

On the “Track Evo” screen, the tachometer moves on a horizontal scale located at the highest part of the most prominent instrument, with a display in the center of the screen indicating that the gears are engaged. In the area on the right, there are four sectors of different colors, each dedicated to electronic control (DTC, DWC, DSC, EBC). “

“These sectors are individually lit when the electronics are operating with specific parameters and remain lit for the time required for the rider to identify which indicator is active. Signaling mode facilitates the user’s task of understanding the controls that actually worked to enable the user to accurately and accurately intervene in the selection of the optimal level and obtain better performance faster. . ”

According to the press release, both the Panigale V4 and Panigale V4 S will be available in North America as of February next year. The Panigale V4 starts at $ 23,295 (C $ 26,495) and the Panigale V4 S starts at $ 29,995 ($ 33,895). , Each.
