Ducati Panigale V4 is a track focused bike and you have 214PS of power to play with, no doubts shall ever arise. Torque has gone down to 124Nm but nearly all of it is available across a much wider rev range between 8750 - 12,250rpm. The rev limit has increased from 12,500rpm to 14,500rpm. These might seem like small changes but add it all together and you get - sweetness. The engine doesn’t punish you with jerky throttle responses when you accelerate from the middle of a corner, or when you use a higher gear. Simply put, the new engine doesn’t have the quirks of the L-Twin, which makes it a whole load easier and nicer to ride than any Ducati superbike before it. This has obvious benefits on a tight and twisting track but it also makes the new Panigale a sweeter motorcycle to live with! Although, we’d be a little bit shocked and annoyed if you bought one to commute on in India. But, for the first time the Panigale comes with a Street mode that softens throttle response for a more easygoing commute. Instead of a trellis monocoque the Panigale now uses a cast alloy front frame that gave Ducati more flexibility in tuning the precision and agility of the handling while making it easier to ride.The frame weighs all of 4kgs and uses the engine as a stressed member. Weight has been of great importance here. The LED headlamp units have been lightened by 0.5kgs. The deep-drawn technique for making the 16-litre fuel tank allows it to be shaped so that it can flow under the rider’s seat to distribute weight better. The S version uses a lithium-ion battery to reduce weight further. We’ll say it without hemming and hawing - the Ducati Panigale V4 S might very well be the new benchmark for litre-class motorcycles. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts and if any modification requires then get in touch with the authorized service center as they will be the better persons to assist you regarding such customization.

Out side India you need a special licence and need to undergo training to ride a superbike. v4 gives you confidence..but thumb rule is to upgrade from a super sport segment or v2 then to v4. If you had made up mind ...respect the bike for your safety and to all vehicles in the road including pedestrians. Buy premium riding gears ..ride safe.Good luck.

I would strongly recommend not riding this as your first bike, you might want to consider buying or renting something with a little less power to get used to the feel of a bike, as almost everybody drops their first bike a few times and it would be a shame to scratch a brand new ducati
No it's a track oriented sports bike which is tamed in a way that you can take/conquer streets.New age electronics different driving modes,traction control,abs,slide controls make it equipped to conquer track and street. Week end rides is fun!!

It has a aggressive riding position which will cause back pain on daily commuting. Also, this bike is designed for track usage & is not fit for daily commuting.
