Bagnaia and Bautista Panigale V4 R championship replicas presented by Ducati

The year 2022 has been great for Ducati. The Bologna-based manufacturer dominated not one, but two premiere Grand Prix championships – the MotoGP and WorldSBK.

To celebrate his milestone, Ducati presents two championship replicas based on the new Panigale V4.

The two special series, made on the base of the Panigale V4 S, will feature the liveries of the bikes of Pecco Bagnaia #63 and Álvaro Bautista #19. Each motorcycle in the series will be made unique by the original autograph of the rider on the tank, which will then be protected with a layer of clear varnish. The two motorcycles, produced in a numbered and limited series, celebrate in their production numbers the year of Ducati's birth. In fact, each series will consist of only 260 units, in honor of 1926, the year the company was founded.

Like the race bikes, they are inspired by, the Panigale V4 2022 World Champion Replica bikes are offered in a single-seat configuration only and are enhanced by the billet aluminum upper clamp with laser engraving of the model name and progressive number. The technical equipment boasts the adoption of the nine-disc STM-EVO SBK dry clutch, Akrapovič street-legal silencer which is 2 kg lighter than the Panigale V4's stock unit, Brembo braking system enhanced by Stylema R calipers and MCS master cylinder with remote adjuster, Rizoma billet aluminum adjustable footpegs and racing plexiglass.

Other technical details that characterize these special bikes are the rear exhaust manifold heat shield, alternator cover, front and rear fenders, and front brake ducts, all made of carbon fiber. Also made of carbon fiber, combined with titanium, is the cover protecting the single-sided swingarm. Finally, the series dedicated to Álvaro Bautista #19 features the brushed aluminum tank found on the more refined versions of the Panigale V4.

Each bike will be delivered in a packing case with dedicated graphics and will come with a certificate of authenticity, a custom bike cover, and the Ducati Data Analyzer+ data acquisition system. Those who want to take advantage of the performance of these two motorcycles on the circuit will be able to mount the additional accessories provided, such as the carbon fiber open clutch cover, license plate and mirror removal kits, and the billet aluminum racing fuel cap.
