- Fender Eliminator / Tail Tidy Kit
Ducati expands its Panigale lineup and replaces its “1299” with a new model that’s meant to take over as the new apex-predator – the Panigale V4 – and the new Panigale V4 S Corse builds on that platform with a race-worthy package. Not only does it closely resemble the MotoGP version with much the same look and equipment, it doubles down with the factory race team’s unmistakable colors in its unique livery.
It doesn’t waste any weight on the road - legal gear that’s rather superfluous on a racebike, and it’s intended for the closed - circuit and proper road - courses only. However, no expense was spared in the ride - control electronics department, and the robust suite makes this a veritable marvel on two wheels.
Ducati takes the stressed - engine design to the Nth degree with an aluminum - alloy front frame that bolts directly to the engine and doesn’t directly touch the rear of the frame that mounts the swingarm pivot. The steering head establishes a rake angle of 24.5 degrees with four inches of trail to establish some agile geometry. In back, another chunk of framing bolts up to the integral transmission case to mount the rear suspension and the single-side aluminum swingarm. Not only does this framing method keep weight down, but it also delivers a rigidity you just don’t get from a “proper” frame.
Öhlins provides all of the suspension components with a set of inverted, 43 mm, NIX30 forks up front and a TTX36 monoshock in back, plus a steering damper on the front frame that absorbs kickback and contributes to stability. The suspension at both ends is fully adjustable and comes stock with the Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 automatic suspension control that dynamically tunes itself based on conditions.
Forged - aluminum Marchesini rims round out the rolling chassis with a light, triple-spoke design. Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP hoops make the connection to the pavement with a 120/70-17 up front opposite an extra wide, 200/60-17, and the rubber comes with a ZR rating that’ll tolerate top speeds and hard cornering.
Dual, 330 mm discs and four-piston, Brembo Stylema M4.30 calipers haul down the front wheel with a 245 mm disc and twin-piston caliper out back. The monobloc construction provides a stable anchor for the pads with no flex or give in the system. A corner-sensitive Bosch ABS EVO feature measures the inertial forces working on the chassis and calculates the available traction so it can modulate the level of intervention so as to not break the rear wheel loose.
