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

Q. Which one is better Yamaha R1 or Ducati Panigale V4 in terms of performance, riding experience and safety features?
  • Both the speed-hungry monsters are not meant to compare but suggest you if you need a more power to pick up and more track-focused bike then suggest you to go for the Ducati Panigale V4 whereas if you need more refined engine in 1000cc with more track-focused features such as The YZF-R1 is fully equipped with banking-sensitive Traction Control and unified ABS, as well as Slide Control, Launch Control, and more. Deltabox Chassis, The YZF-R1 pioneered the use of the first six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit ever offered on a street-going motorcycle. The IMU consists of a gyro sensor that measures pitch, roll, and yaw, as well as an accelerometer that measures acceleration in the fore-aft, up- down, and right-left directions… all at a rate of 125 calculations per second. The YZF-R1 features a lightweight and compact cross-plane crankshaft, inline-four-cylinder, 998cc high output engine. Whereas Ducati provides you Exhaust system Ducati Performance by Akrapovič, Riding Modes, Power Modes, Bosch Cornering ABS EVO, Ducati Traction Control EVO, Ducati Wheelie Control EVO, Ducati Slide Control, Engine Brake Control EVO, Auto tyre calibration. The crank pins, offset by 70° like on the Desmosedici GP, require a "Twin Pulse" firing order to generate power that is easy to handle and optimise traction when coming out of curves. Thanks to this firing order the Desmosedici Stradale makes a unique and distinctive sound. The claimed mileage for the Yamaha YZF R1 petrol is 15kmpl whereas the claimed mileage for the Ducati Panigale V4 petrol is 8-12kmpl. But before the final decisions suggest you take a test drive of both the vehicles to understand the power and comfort better.
  • R1 has a 4 cylinder legacybut VR still creeps towards R1 in terms of design which is definitely European ,will last. Also it 3 versions to choose from to its service centres in main centres.
