2023 Ducati Panigale V2: SUPERQUADRO LOVE.

Introducing the new 2023 Ducati Panigale V2…

The Red Essence. In White.

The twin-cylinder Panigale has a completely new look and refined electronics thanks to the use of the Inertial Platform, and is even better performing and safer on the track, not to mention fully exploitable and enjoyable on the road thanks to a more comfortable seat and revised suspension setup.

Its name lets the lovers of Borgo Panigale twin-cylinders know that the model is powered by the 955cc Superquadro.

Fun on the road, performance and safety on the track

The perfect fusion of power and elegance

The new Panigale V2 Is a beefy yet compact bike of essential design with clear-cut lines that convey power without compromising classic Ducati superbike flair.

 

 

2023 Ducati Panigale V2 Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

ABS Bosch Cornering EVO
The ABS system on the Panigale V2 features the cornering function (which keeps the ABS working even with the bike leaned over) and has the same intervention logic and control as on the V4.

Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO
The Panigale V2 is also equipped with the latest version of Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO. Using the data feed from the 6D IMU, this system keeps wheelies in check while maximising acceleration easily and safely.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2
The new Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2 strategy is an offshoot of the Ducati Desmosedici GP18.

Engine Brake Control (EBC) EVO
The EBC (Engine Brake Control) system was developed to help riders optimise bike stability under extreme turn-in conditions; it does so by balancing the forces applied to the rear tyre under severe engine-braking conditions.

Riding Mode
Riding Modes provide users with three different pre-set riding styles so that Panigale V2 performance can be adapted to rider, track/route and weather conditions.

Ducati Data Analyser + GPS (DDA+ GPS)
The Ducati Data Analyser + GPS (DDA + GPS), allows assessment of bike and rider performance by showing traces for specific data items.

Ducati Lap Timer GPS (DLT GPS)
The DLT GPS feature automatically records and saves lap times and displays them directly on the dashboard each time the bike crosses the finish line, the coordinates of which are set by pressing the flasher button.

Ducati Multimedia System (DMS)
The Panigale V2 can be used with the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS). This lets riders take incoming calls, select and listen to music or receive text messages via Bluetooth.

 

FRONT

Panigale look

Dominating the front end are the two large air intakes, the upper parts of which incorporate the full-LED headlight. The new intakes merge with the existing air feed layout via newly designed ducts that, delivery rates remaining equal, lose less pressure than the previous ones, thus boosting intake efficiency. The headlight has been compacted with the express intent of giving the intakes themselves – especially with the bike at standstill – a more menacing air.

FAIRING

“Double Layer” fairing

The fairing has a ‘dual layer’ configuration: a main layer that extends upwards and merges into the tank via two sturdy struts, and a secondary layer that also acts as an air vent. This ‘dual layer’ solution revives the clean lines typical of Ducati sports bikes, famed for their full-fairing look. The fairing underside merges visually with the under-engine silencer, which terminates in an extremely compact right-side-only end pipe.

TAIL

Perfect Ducati Style

The tail is built on a steel Trellis subframe lined with plastic covers that runs from the vertical cylinder to the tailpiece, of winged, spoiler-like design. The tailpiece incorporates the full-LED tail light, also wing-shaped: while a one-piece assembly, the light has two distinct parts as per Ducati sports bike tradition.

 

 

2023 Ducati Panigale V2 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

New injectors and inlet ducts
Performance enhancement largely stems from the new injectors (two per cylinder, one above and one below the butterfly, larger, and re-angled) and the new inlet ducts.

Intake ducts, with the same flow rate, have a lower pressure drop than their predecessors, improving intake efficiency.

Compact silencer
The new silencer has a new internal layout and, back pressure remaining equal, abates noise spikes more easily.

90° Cylinders
On the Panigale V2 the engine acts as a stressed member of the frame. Set 90° apart, the cylinders are banked rearwards around the crankshaft axis, resulting in a 21° angle between front cylinder and horizontal plane.

The two cylinder heads and aluminum top covers feature a ribbed design to reduce mechanical noise. The crankcases are vacuum die-cast using Vacural® technology to optimise weight saving and ensure consistent wall thickness and increased strength. Crankcase cover, clutch cover and sump are all made of die-cast aluminum.

Transmission
Transmission features a six-speed gearbox with the Ducati Quick Shift up/down EVO 2 system and an oil bathed clutch. The latter has an anti-patter and progressive self-servo mechanism.

It allows the load on the plates to be increased without penalizing the effort at the lever required of the rider to disengage the clutch.

 

Monocoque frame
Attached directly to the cylinder heads, the monocoque frame protrudes forward to house the steering head bearings, contained in two aluminum bushes.

In addition to working as a frame, the monocoque also acts as an air-box; it contains not just the air filter but also the throttle bodies and the fuel circuit, complete with injectors, and is sealed off by the steel fuel tank bottom.

Front-end geometry
The front-end geometry has 24° of rake and 95 mm of trail. At the rear, instead, the double-sided swingarm has been replaced with a sophisticated, fully die-cast aluminum single-sided swingarm.

The bike has a 1,436 mm wheelbase and weight distribution is 52% at the front and 48% at the rear.

Suspensions
The Panigale V2 features the 43 mm Showa BPF fork at the front, which provide full adjustability in spring pre-load, compression and rebound damping.

The Showa Big Piston Fork (BPF) considerably improves damping control at low speed, ensuring lower-pressure oil feed and reducing the amount of fluid needed for compression and rebound adjustment.

Wheels and tires
The Panigale V2 has a 5-spoke, 3.5 inch wheel at the front and 5.5 inch wheel at the rear, both rolling on Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa II tires: 120/70 ZR17 at the front and a nimble 180/60 x ZR17 at the rear.

Pirelli’s first multi-compound bike tire, the Diablo Rosso Corsa II combines racetrack performance with road versatility, making it just perfect for the Panigale V2.

4.3” TFT display
Instrumentation on the Panigale V2 features a 4.3″ TFT display. Graphics and interface make menu browsing and adjustments easy while allowing more immediate identification of the selected Riding Mode.

The Riding Mode interface clearly and immediately shows any changes being made to the settings. This is done thanks to the explanatory graphics of the system being adjusted and a graduated scale indicating whether the modification is better suited to performance or safety/stability.

Electronic Controls
The comprehensive and modern electronic equipment, based on the 6-axis inertial platform, leaves no doubt that the Panigale V2 possesses the DNA of the high-end sports bike.

The new electronics package raises active safety and dynamic control standards by adding the cornering function to the ABS, upgrading the quickshift so it now covers down-changes and including traction control, engine brake control and wheelie control. As you’d expect, all controls are incorporated in the three Riding Modes (Race, Sport, Street) and can be adjusted via the new 4.3″ color TFT dashboard. Featuring a user-friendly graphic interface browsing menus, adjusting settings and identifying the selected Riding Mode couldn’t be easier.

Headlight, tail light and indicators
The front headlight assembly is extremely compact thanks to the adoption of two small LED low beam / high beam modules.

The Daytime Running Light and the upper rim of the dual headlight assembly create a ‘browed’ look, the modern hallmark of Ducati sports bikes. At the rear, instead, the full-LED tail light features a two-part design as per Ducati sports tradition. The dual red arch of the side light makes the Panigale V2 both unique and assertive. Front and rear LED indicators complete the lighting system.
