How to get the most out of the new Ducati Panigale MotoGP bike
After years of tinkering with bikes and developing them to their ultimate potential, Ducati is ready to unveil the Ducati Sport V-twin.
The first Ducati bike to be released under its new V-Twin model lineup, the Sport V’s first prototype has been revealed and is set to hit the market by the end of the year.
The bike has been created by Ducati’s technology and engineering team and will have its debut in September, 2018.
Ducati has been developing the bike for the last four years, and this latest iteration marks the first time the company has made a bike with its own design.
The engine has been upgraded to a 6.5-liter V-8 with twin turbos, and the bike also features aero-mechanical control systems and an ABS system.
The bike has already been the subject of numerous rumors, and we know that the engine is capable of producing over 650 horsepower, so this will likely be a high-performance bike for Ducati to debut.
In addition to its unique engine, the bike has also been upgraded with a new suspension, including a new front and rear suspension, which will be the company’s largest to date.
While the SportV is set for a limited production run, the Ducatis first prototype is set up for a much bigger launch.
In order to give the bike its full potential, it is also slated for a debut at the 2019 North American International Auto Show.
Duke is one of Ducati´s top rivals in the World Championship and has been competing with the Panigales since 2011.
It is expected that the Ducats will also use the bike in the 2018 season.
Ducati will announce its full-season schedule for 2019 on November 4, 2019.
