2023 Ducati Panigale V4R Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

A heart beating 16,500 rpm

The heart of the Panigale V4 R is the new 998 cc Desmosedici Stradale R, an engine capable of reaching a maximum engine speed of 16,500 rpm in sixth gear (16,000 in the other ratios) and delivering a maximum power of 207 hp @ 13,500 rpm, absolute benchmark values in the panorama of supersports bikes of the same displacement.

Race-oriented electronics

The greater effectiveness of the new Panigale V4 R in circuit use is also obtained thanks to the adoption of all the electronic evolutions already introduced on the Panigale V4 ’22 and ’23, with the expansion and evolution of the Power Modes, new “Track Evo” display on the dashboard, engine maps with calibration dedicated to each single gear, refinements to the Ducati Traction Control and the Ride By Wire system, but also the adoption of the Engine Brake Control EVO 2 strategy, the new strategy for the DQS and the cooling fan control update.

Improved track-feeling

To increase nimbleness, rider feeling and grip, the chassis follows the evolutionary direction traced by the Panigale V4/V4 S with the 2022 model, while maintaining fully mechanical suspension adjustment. At the front, the Öhlins NPX25/30 pressurized fork increases its travel by 5 mm compared to the previous “R”. This technical solution, combined with an Öhlins TTX36 shock absorber and a standard adjustment of the swingarm pivot to the +1 position, increases the rear height by 20 mm. In this way, a higher centre of gravity is achieved and therefore greater nimbleness in corner entry and changes of direction.

Aerodynamic development

The aerodynamic package has been revised with a view to greater efficiency: the new two-element wings (main + flap) guarantee the same aerodynamic load, but are more compact and thinner (respectively by 40% and 50%).

 

Ducati Presents the New Panigale V4 R: Over 240 hp in Track Setup, Limiter at 16,500 rpm

  • The new Panigale V4 R adopts technical solutions previously reserved for MotoGP and Superbike, such as “gun drilled” titanium connecting rods and pistons with DLC surface treatment
  • The new Desmosedici Stradale R in track setup provides 240.5 hp at 15,500 rpm and rev limit (in sixth gear) at 16,500 rpm: extraordinary numbers for a series production motorcycle
  • Together with the engine, a performance oil has been developed, derived from the formulations used in racing, which contributes to reaching 240.5 hp

The new Panigale V4 RWith this bike, Ducati once again confirms its vocation: to offer brand enthusiasts the most sophisticated and refined technological solutions by delivering a street-legal superbike that’s even closer to the Panigale race bike used in the WorldSBK Championship.

It has new carbon wings and MotoGP-inspired livery, including the number “1”. For the first time, the V4 R will be produced in a numbered series with the progressive number and model name shown on the billet aluminum top triple clamp.

The new 998 cc Desmosedici Stradale R is the heart of the Panigale V4 R, an engine capable of reaching a maximum engine speed of 16,500 rpm in sixth gear (16,000 in the gears) and delivering a maximum power of 207 hp at 13,500 rpm—an absolute benchmark in the panorama of supersport motorcycles of the same displacement. By fitting the racing exhaust, the full potential of the engine is released, the Stradale R producing 237 hp, 3 hp more than the predecessor.

The new Panigale V4 R’s engine development also involved the creation of a special oil developed by Shell in collaboration with Ducati Corse. The new performance oil guarantees a 10% reduction in mechanical friction, resulting in a 3.5 hp increase in maximum power, which rises to +4.5 hp at the limiter.

The Shell oil uses racing-type additives, specific for high-rpm engines equipped with a dry clutch, such as the new Panigale V4 R. Just as in MotoGP and WorldSBK engines, a dry clutch allows the use of additives that cause transmission problems in a traditional oil-bath clutch. These chemical elements are added to the base oil in dedicated quantities and percentages to ensure the right balance between performance and engine protection.

The Panigale V4 R can produce an extraordinary 240.5 hp with the complete racing exhaust and dedicated Shell oil.

These numbers are possible due to the adoption of sophisticated technical solutions derived from the world of racing competition.

For the first time on a road bike, “gun drilled” titanium connecting rods are used, which are drilled longitudinally along the rod (.06 in diameter hole). This solution allows an oil passage from the head to the small end, improving lubrication and reliability in extreme conditions.

For the first time on a road engine. the Desmosedici Stradale R pistons use a DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) surface treatment, a solution used in MotoGP and Formula 1 racing competition, which reduces friction between piston and cylinder liner. The pistons also have a new geometry that makes them .04 oz (5 g) lighter (equal to 2% of their weight), reducing the forces of inertia, to the benefit of reliability.

Other changes include a more aggressive profile of the intake cams that have an increased lift of 0.03 in (1 mm) and are matched to new variable-length horns, which are reduced by 0.2 In (5 mm). This modification improves breathing at high revs and increases maximum power when matched with the racing exhaust.

To improve on-track performance, the Panigale V4 R adopts the same gear ratios used by WorldSBK Panigale race bikes, an update first used on the 2022 Panigale V4 S. The gear ratios are lengthened in first (+ 11.6%), second (+ 5.6%) and sixth gear (+ 1.8%) compared to the previous V4 R. The taller first gear becomes more usable on the track, offering the benefits of improved engine management when braking and better acceleration when exiting corners. In addition, the smaller jump between first and second gear allows the Ducati Quick Shift—the subject of an important evolution of improving fluidity at every degree of throttle opening—to work more effectively.

The 2023 Desmosedici Stradale R is also equipped with a new dry clutch derived from the development of the version used in the WorldSBK by the official Ducati team. The diameter and axial length have been reduced by .9 in (-24 mm) and the weight by 1.8 lb (800 grams).

The V4 R’s on-track effectiveness is strengthened by the electronic evolutions introduced on the 2022 and 2023 Panigale V4, which include Power Mode expansion, a new “Track Evo” dashboard display, engine maps with calibration dedicated to each single gear, refinements to the Ducati Traction Control and the Ride By Wire system, and the adoption of the Engine Brake Control EVO 2 strategy, the new DQS strategy and a cooling fan control update.

To make the Panigale V4 R even faster and more usable in racing, the Power Mode has been updated with calibrations dedicated to the Desmosedici Stradale R engine. The Power Modes feature four engine configurations that were all revised for the Panigale V4 R: Full, High, Medium and Low.

Full Power Mode allows the engine to express its full potential with torque curves void of electronic filters—except for the first gear. For the Medium and High Power Modes, a new Ride by Wire map has dedicated calibration for all six gears, ensuring the rider achieves optimum drive every time the throttle is opened. On the other hand, the Low Power Mode has been designed for riding on the road or for low-grip surfaces, limiting the bike’s maximum power to 160 hp and offering a more manageable throttle response.

The V4 R operating parameters can be viewed more effectively because of the new dashboard graphics, which differ in a revised distribution of the functions of the warning lights outside the screen. The essential change first introduced on the V4 S, is the updated interface that includes a new Info Mode developed by MotoGP riders and called “Track Evo”. This is added to the existing “Road” and “Track.”

To improve stability, precision and directionality in braking and corner entry, and allow the rider to optimize electronic engine configuration for each circuit, the Panigale V4 R adopts Engine Brake Control (EBC) EVO 2. This electronic engine brake management system features a different gear-by-gear calibration on each of the three selectable levels, refining engine brake intensity.

The Panigale V4 R Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) was also refined. The new DQS improves shifting smoothness at every degree of throttle opening, whether partially or wide open. During shifting under partial throttle, the DQS cuts injection and reduces advance, smoothing shifts that are especially pleasing for road use. During wide-open throttle situations typical of track riding, the DQS utilizes a torque restitution phase that guarantees more stability, which increases lap times.

In addition to these changes, the cooling fan control was updated to manage operating temperatures and heat reduction better. Furthermore, this cooling fan control optimizes comfort for road riders.

For those who use the Panigale V4 R only on the track, the Bologna-based company has developed the specific Ducati Performance DTC EVO 3 software for slicks and rain tires (sold as an accessory and not approved for public street use). The system activates the flashing operation of the rear position light, as required by racing regulations in case of rain and replaces the Street Riding Mode with a Rain Mode specifically designed for wet surfaces.

To improve rider feeling when opening and managing the throttle, the system is 50% more compact, characterized by reduced radial and axial clearances. The throttle is also virtually free of initial idle travel, which helps improve lap times. Finally, just like all race bikes, the V4 R arrives with a Pit Limiter, which limits the speed at the exit and entry of the pit lane.

The Panigale V4 R continues with the layout based on the “Front Frame” and single-sided aluminum swingarm of the Ducati Panigale family. This allows riders to adjust the rear swingarm pivot height in 4 positions (.8 in steps).

To increase nimbleness, rider feeling and grip, the Panigale V4 R chassis follows the evolutionary direction traced by the 2022 Panigale V4/V4 S while maintaining fully mechanical suspension adjustment. At the front, the Öhlins NPX25/30 pressurized fork increases its travel by 0.2 in (5 mm) compared to the previous “R”. This technical solution, combined with an Öhlins TTX36 shock absorber whose center distance goes from 12.3 in to 12.4 in (312 to 316 mm) and a standard adjustment of the swingarm pivot to the +1 position, increases the rear height by 0.8 in. This helps the V4 R achieve a higher center of gravity for increased nimbleness during corner entry and direction changes.

The update to a less rigid spring for the shock absorber (from 105 N/mm to 80 N/mm) and a lower front ground load due to the lengthening of the fork travel, as well as improving the ability to “copy” the asphalt, accentuates load transfers. This occurs by exploiting greater negative travel of the suspension, which increases grip and feeling when entering corners. Simultaneously, the increased fork travel allows the front wheel to maintain contact with the asphalt during more stressful rear load transfers during acceleration. At the same time, the position of the swingarm pivot accentuates the anti-squat effect by improving stability, precision and ability to maintain the trajectory when driving out of corners. Finally, to quicken and simplify shock preload adjustments, the rear shock absorber is equipped with a hydraulic preload adjuster.

The new Panigale V4 R arrives with a brushed aluminum tank with a capacity increased to 4.5 gallons and a profile that optimizes support for the rider’s arms and legs when braking and cornering. A flatter seat complements the changes to the tank with reduced foam and a different covering. The redesigned seat provides greater freedom of longitudinal movement while helping rider stability when necessary.

On the Panigale V4 R, the aerodynamic package has also been revised with a view to greater efficiency: the new two-element wings (main + flap) guarantee the same aerodynamic load but are more compact and thinner (respectively by 40% and 50%).

To improve the engine cooling and stabilizing performance during track use, the fairing has been modified in the layout of the extractors in the lower area, complying with the WorldSBK Championship regulations. Also, an air intake to cool the sensor of the Ducati Quick Shift is located on the lower left side.

To further increase efficiency in track use, Ducati Performance offers a wide range of accessories with which to complete and embellish the Panigale V4 R. A favorite for track riders is the Akrapovič titanium complete exhaust system with a double under-seat silencer, which improves the already reduced weight/power ratio of the Panigale V4 R thanks to a weight saving of 11 lb compared to the standard system and the increase in power up to 237 hp. The exhaust is supplied with dedicated mapping for DTC, DWC, DPL and DSC parameters to further improve the Panigale V4 R performance.

Magnesium rims provide additional weight reduction, shaving a further 1.5 lb (-10%) compared to the already light-forged original equipment rims. The magnesium wheels help improve all performance dynamics, especially nimbleness during corner entry and direction changes.

To better adapt the riding position, adjustable aluminum rider footpegs are available, developed by Ducati Corse in collaboration with Rizoma. The footpegs are equipped with articulated brake and shifter pedals to minimize the risk of breakage in the event of a slide. The setup uses the standard DQS, which can be configured both as a traditional shifter and as a reverse/racing shifter.

The Pit Stop accessory package adds tire warmers and garage stands. Those wishing to use Slick or Rain tires can choose the DTC EVO 3 software, which introduces the specific calibrations of the electronic controls.

More carbon fiber components are available to further embellish the Panigale V4 R, including rear, mudguard, frame, swingarm, sprocket and crankcase protectors, and front brake cooling ducts. The latter improves track performance and makes braking more efficient and consistent.

 

 

 

2023 Ducati Panigale V4R Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Racing technology
The new Panigale V4 R adopts technical solutions reserved for MotoGP and Superbikes, such as “gun drilled” titanium connecting rods and pistons with DLC surface treatment.

Other interventions involve pistons with new geometry, a more aggressive intake cam profile, adoption of the same gear ratio used by bikes competing in World Superbike, and a new lighter dry clutch.

Greater effectiveness in track use is also achieved through electronic evolutions, such as the expansion and evolution of the Power Modes, the new Track Evo display on the dashboard, engine maps with dedicated calibration for each individual gear, refinements to the DTC and Ride By Wire throttle system, but also the Engine Brake Control EVO 2, the new strategy for the DQS, and the updated cooling fan control.

The Panigale V4 R also adopts a new throttle control that improves the rider’s feeling when opening and managing the throttle.

New electronic setup
Within the riding modes, the new Power Mode logic has been adopted with dedicated calibrations for the Desmosedici Stradale R engine. There are four engine strategies: Full, High, Medium, Low. Full and Low are newly designed, while the High and Medium configurations have been revised.

Power at first sight
Every technical detail has been thought out and designed to enhance the pure racing feel of the bike.

Evolution of the 998 cc Desmosedici Stradale R Evo
The engine retains its top speed of 16,500 rpm in sixth gear, an unparalleled value in the supersport range of similar displacement. By fitting the non-homologated racing exhaust, it is possible to take full advantage of all the upgrades made to the engine, and the maximum power figure can even reach 237 hp*.

For the first time on a road bike, titanium connecting rods of the “gun drilled” type are used, that is, drilled longitudinally along the shaft (1.6 mm diameter hole). This solution, by allowing oil to flow from the head to the connecting rod foot, improves pin lubrication and thus reliability under extreme conditions.

**The Panigale V4 R can reach 240.5 hp in closed course configuration with the combination of the complete racing exhaust and dedicated Shell Oil. The racing exhaust is intended for vehicles used only in closed course circuits. Operation on public roads is prohibited by law.

Aluminum pistons with DLC treatment
The pistons of the Desmosedici Stradale R have a skirt characterized by DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) surface treatment, a solution used in MotoGP and Formula 1 racing competition, which reduces friction between piston and liner and which is applied for the first time on a road engine. The pistons also have a new geometry that makes them 5 grams lighter (equal to 2% of their weight) thus reducing the forces of inertia, to the benefit of reliability.

New piston geometry
The pistons also have a new geometry that makes them 5 grams lighter (equal to 2% of their weight) thus reducing the forces of inertia, to the benefit of reliability.

Gearbox with SBK ratios
The gear ratio is the same as that used by bikes competing in World Superbike, with the lengthening of first (+11.6%) second (5.6%) and sixth gears (1.8). First gear then becomes usable in more corners of each circuit, offering the benefits of more engine braking on braking and better acceleration on exit. In addition, the smaller jump between first and second allows the DQS to work more effectively.

“Gun Drilled” connecting rods
For the first time on a road bike, “gun drilled” titanium connecting rods are used, which are drilled longitudinally along the rod (1.6 mm diameter hole). This solution, allowing the passage of oil from the head to the small end, improves lubrication and reliability in extreme conditions.

Camshafts
The four camshafts of the Desmosedici Stradale R engine have dedicated profiles that realize higher lift-offs than on the Desmosedici Stradale and move the sixteen valves with sizes of 34 mm in diameter for the titanium intake valves and 27.5 mm in diameter for the steel exhaust valves. The valves have titanium half-cones, a solution usually used only in competition engines.

New Info Mode “Track Evo”
In the “Track Evo” screen, the tachometer moves on a horizontal scale positioned in the highest part of the display, that is the most visible and the indication of the gear engaged is in the centre of the screen. In the right area of ​​the display there are four different colored sectors, each dedicated to an electronic control (DTC, DWC, DSC, EBC). These sectors light up individually when the electronics are working on a certain parameter, remaining on for the time necessary for the rider to identify which indicator is activated. This signalling mode makes it easier for the rider to understand the control that has actually worked to allow him to intervene more precisely and punctually on the choice of optimal level and to obtain better performance more quickly. The left sector completes the information with chronometer, number of laps completed and speed.

New Engine Brake Control EVO 2 Software
To improve stability, precision and directionality in braking and corner entry phases and allow the rider to define more precisely the best electronic engine configuration on each circuit, the Panigale V4 R ’23 also adopts the Engine Brake Control (EBC) EVO 2. This electronic engine brake management system features a different gear-by-gear calibration on each of the three selectable levels. The strategy was developed to optimize the intensity of the engine brake as a function of the load on the rear axle.

New Ducati Quick Shift Strategy
In partialized throttle shifting, the strategy acts both by means of an injection cut of the previous strategy and with a reduction in advance, making the action smoother in road use thanks to the absence of engine shutdowns and re-starts.

In fully open throttle shifting, typical of track use, the DQS strategy is refined with an evolution of the torque restitution phase that guarantees more stability to the bike and a more homogeneous and therefore more profitable drive in the lap time.

New cooling fan strategy
In addition to these changes, there is also an update of the cooling fan control strategy, now able to offer better management of operating temperatures while also reducing the accumulation of heat typical of the conclusion of track sessions. Furthermore, this strategy guarantees greater thermal comfort for the rider at the typical speeds of road use.

New Power Mode Strategy
There are four engine strategies: Full, High, Medium, Low. Full and Low are newly designed, while the High and Medium configurations have been revised.

Full Power Mode allows the engine to express its full potential with torque curves without electronic filters, except for first gear. For the Medium and High Power Modes, a new Ride by Wire map management system has been developed with dedicated calibration for each of the six gears, which ensures the rider always obtains optimum drive every time the throttle is opened. The Low Power Mode, on the other hand, has been designed for riding on the road or for low-grip surfaces, limiting the maximum power of the bike to 160 hp and offering a particularly manageable throttle response.

Öhlins long excursion fork
At the front, the Öhlins NPX25/30 pressurized fork increases its travel by 5 mm compared to the previous “R”. This technical solution, combined with an Öhlins TTX36 shock absorber whose centre distance goes from 312 to 316 mm and a standard adjustment of the swingarm pivot to the +1 position, increases the rear height by 20 mm. In this way, a higher centre of gravity is achieved and therefore greater nimbleness in corner entry and changes of direction.

New Öhlins TTX36 shock absorber
The adoption of a less rigid spring for the shock absorber (from 105 N/mm to 80 N/mm) and a lower ground load on the front due to the lengthening of the fork travel, as well as improving the ability to “copy” the asphalt accentuates load transfers by exploiting the greater negative travel of the suspension, increasing grip and feeling when entering corners

Adjustable rear swingarm pivot height adjustable
The Panigale V4 R continues with the layout based on the “Front Frame” and single-sided aluminum swingarm of the Ducati Panigale family. It is possible to adjust the height of the rear swingarm pivot in 4 positions in 2 mm steps.

The position of the swingarm pivot accentuates the anti-squat effect by improving stability, precision and ability to maintain the trajectory when coming out of corners.

Shock absorber with preload adjuster
To speed and simplify calibration, the rear shock absorber is equipped with hydraulic preload adjuster.

New ergonomics
The superstructures of the Ducati supersports bike have also been updated, with the adoption of a brushed aluminum tank with a capacity increased to 3.7 gallons and a profile that offers better support for the rider’s arms and legs when braking and when cornering. The changes to the tank are added to a flatter saddle, with a reduced amount of foam and with a different covering, which on the one hand guarantees greater freedom of longitudinal movement, and on the other helps the rider to become more stable when necessary.

New Wings
On the Panigale V4 R 2023 the aerodynamic package has also been revised with a view to greater efficiency: the new two-element wings (main + flap) guarantee the same aerodynamic load, but are more compact and thinner (respectively by 40% and 50%).

New lower fairings
To improve the cooling of the engine, stabilizing its performance in extreme use on the circuit, the fairing has been modified in the layout of the extractors in the lower area, and complies with the World Superbike Championship regulations. Also in the lower part, on the left side, there is an air intake to cool the sensor of the Ducati Quick Shift.
