The Panigale V4 and V4s featured new self-bleeding brake and clutch pumps which were used in the Superleggera V4 for the first time.

Design

Co-created by Ducati Corse and the Ducati Style Center, the optimal design (aerodynamics)package of Ducati Panigale V4 is like the Panigale V4 R now.

If we talk about MotoGP, the aerodynamic advancement included a progression of primer CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) studies, trailed by enhancement on a full-scale wind tunnel model.

The new transmission ratios

As compared to the last year, the first gear is 11.6 percent higher and the second gear is 5.6 percent higher which makes the first gear more functional on the track and more fixes the gap between first, second, and third shift for further developed acceleration and quick-shifter activity.

Talking about the sixth shift, it is 1.8 percent higher to provide the new 2022 Ducati Panigale V4 with a higher top speed.

1. Race A Mode

The Race A mode is for racing which allows you full power access and Full power mode and light impact of the control capacities. Only in Race A, ABS is front-wheel.

2. Race B Mode

This mode is designed for tracks and torque is cushioned down for the three least shifts, and the electronics do more to address rider mistakes.

3. Sport Mode

In sport mode you will get still 210 horsepower on draft, however, the rider will get rescued all the more frequently.

Rear-wheel lift mitigation and prevent high-sides, Slide by Brake is there to help, keeps the Ducati Panigale V4 stable.

Specification: Engine, Performance, and Overview specs of Ducati Panigale V4 and V4s

The new Ducati Panigale V4 and V4s are powered by a 1103cc, liquid-cooled, Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine which develops 213 horsepower at @13000 rpm and 91.2 torque at @11000 rpm. The engine type is Desmosedici Stradale 90-degree V4 w/ counter-rotating crankshaft.

The bike comes with 6-speed transmissions and with straight-cut gears and Hydraulically actuated wet multi-plate w/ assist and slipper functions. The Compression ratio of 2022 Panigale V4 and V4s is 14.0:1 and has 81mm of bore and 53.5mm of stroke.

Talking about crankshaft, the crankshaft rotates in the same direction as the wheels on the street bikes but in MotoGP, the counter-rotating crankshaft rotates in opposite direction.

The Desmosedici Stradale has acquired this specialized solution to make up for a part of the gyroscopic impact delivered by the wheels, making the motorbike more spry and exact while altering directions.

A torque generated by the counter-rotating crankshaft because of inertia will in general lower the front end during acceleration and the backside while breaking, along these lines lessening the wheelie peculiarity.
