Q. Difference in those variants std s and r - Panigale V4?
  • Sorry bro I perceived the question wrongly.v4 R is a race bike with a road licence. Changes are in the good as a different stroke × bore which make it quick in a track. its 998cc while v4 has 1103cc. Power is MORE than 235ps at 13000 romans torque 121 Nm which makes way to a top speed greater than 312km/hour. on the other hand v4 is having 221 ps at 13000 rpm112 Nm of torque. From outside it can be distinguished from v4 by its shark grill.,metal touch on the tank and a white line over its body.visors are hard in v4R. safey features same but on track R version shed his wright by 7 kg to 165 kg and should meet sll criteria of a race bike . In short its a race bike eith a road licence.Ducsti will give to its race team il take toThanks
  • Price !! just kidding ,before answering it Ducatis policy is to make ride safe by mechanotrnics ,here they merge mechanical and electronic engineering. Mechanical part is the suspension which automatically get adjusted depending on the bikes velocity(or speed). so now v4 is v4s which comes with ohlins electronic event control system.Here event is suspension and speed which make use of a sensor (6D) which measures how much inertia to transmit (imu..inertia measuring unit) simply telling suspension can be adjusted electronically. This is the main difference between v4 an v4s. v4r is a twin from ducati.,now discontinued. Thanks ,happy purchase
  • The 2021 Panigale V4 is available in two variants: STD V4 and V4 S. The only underlying difference between the standard V4 and V4 S is that the S features premium electronically adjustable Öhlins suspension, lighter Marchesini forged aluminum wheels, and a lithium-ion battery. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.Read more: Ducati Panigale V4 S: First Ride Review.

Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.
