In advance of EICMA 2019, Ducati presented the 2020 range in Rimini: Panigale, Streetfighter, Multistrada.
We left Milan early in order not to miss one of the most anticipated events of the year, presented by Claudio Domenicali himself, CEO of Ducati Motor Holding. The choice of the Motor Valley, as the location of the event, could not have been more appropriate for a company that has made competitions and performances its mission.
Between road and track: Panigale V2
La Twin-cylinder Panigale presents a completely new aesthetic, as well as refined electronics based on the use of the inertial platform, thus confirming itself as incredibly performing and safe in sports use. Thanks to a comfortable rider seat and suspension setup, it is also usable and enjoyable for road use, not only by those in their first experiences with motorcycle sports but also by those looking for the right compromise between a very performing road bike and a bike to be used on the track. In fact, there are many riders who travel several kilometers directly by motorbike before reaching the circuit. The comfort is not comparable to that of a Multistrada of course, but the designers of the Panigale V2 have also taken this factor into account, looking for the right compromise between the sporty setting and the many hours often spent in the saddle, not only on the track. . A bike also aimed at the youngest public, who must "gain experience" before landing on even more racing models.
Traveling to the top: Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour
So it was the turn of the new one Multistrada 1260 S Grand Tour, a special version of the 1260 S dedicated to those who love to travel fast, without sacrificing any comfort. In fact, the Grand Tour, in addition to a new and very elegant color, Matt Sandstone Gray, with references to Ducati's racing red, comes with an almost full optional standard equipment, with heated grips, additional LED spotlights, hands-free tank cap and sensor for monitoring tire pressure, which allows a constant display of the dashboard parameters. Furthermore, as with the rest of the Multistrada family, a rich catalog of accessories touring or Sports and also, why not, more oriented to use off-road or urban.
The Joker's Madness: Streetfighter V4
The new one was the great protagonist of the Ducati World Première 2020 Street Fighter V4, the super-naked long awaited by fans from all over the world, nominated for the scepter of "queen of EICMA 2019".
La Panigale V4 stripped of the fairings, with high and wide handlebars, 178 kg of weight, Desmosedici Stradale 1.103 cm³ engine with 208 CV, biplane wings and a state-of-the-art electronic package: a combination of factors and modifications that at Borgo Panigale have defined “The Fight Formula”. The result is one naked Ducati exaggerated, modern and technological with an aggressive and exciting design. A bike that does nothing to hide performance at the top of the segment, but which guarantees enjoyment and fun even in everyday use.
War Department: Panigale V4
Another important preview of EICMA 2019 is the Panigale V4, which for 2020 is renewed thanks to a series of refinements that have made it easier, more intuitive, less tiring and at the same time faster not only on a single lap, but also over a timed session. The Ducati engineers, together with those of Ducati Corse, collected and analyzed feedback and data from customers all over the world and from the racing fields of the World Championship. Superbike. An important work, which made it possible to define a series of changes to aerodynamics (such as wing profiles), chassis, electronic controls and mapping of the Ride by Wire system, aimed at increasing stability, insertion speed, and the tendency to close. the lines, as well as giving the driver greater confidence in handling the accelerator.
