Ducati India has delivered the first Ducati Panigale V4 Speciale in India to motorcycling enthusiast Kartikey Uniyal. The Panigale V4 Speciale, which is a blend of Ducati style, sophistication and performance drawn directly from the company’s racing pedigree, is a sophisticated superbike that comes close to its MotoGP counterpart – the Desmosedici GP. Ducati has globally produced only 1,500 units of the Panigale V4 Speciale.

Commenting on the bike’s first delivery in India,  Sergi Canovas, managing director of Ducati India, said, “The new Panigale V4 is the essence of sport motorcycling in its most exhilarating and pure form. Just like its name, the Panigale V4 Speciale is a very special production in the Ducati story, a new ‘symphony of Italian performance and emotion’. We are proud to have delivered the first Panigale V4 Speciale to Kartikey Uniyal and welcome him to the Ducati family.”

The new Panigale V4 Speciale completes the range of Panigale V4 and takes the concept of an Italian sport bike to an extreme. It comes with an exclusive and dedicated livery, a titanium Ducati performance by Akrapovic exhaust and a steering head worked from the solid, with an identification number. The Panigale V4 Speciale develops 226hp at 13,750rpm and puts out 133.6 Nm of torque at 11,000rpm. It also has a lighter lithium-ion battery and a cast magnesium sub-frame and has a dry weight of 174 kg.

This Ducati stands out even more due to its tricolour livery and many dedicated technical elements, like the billet steering plate with screen-printed logo and progressive number, Alcantra seat covered with Ultrasuede or the carbon heel guards. The limited edition Speciale comes with fully adjustable Ohlins electronic suspension at both ends, NIX-30 USD forks up front and TTX36 unit at the rear and Marchesini forged magnesium racing wheels are optionally available.

Priced at Rs 51.81 lakh (ex-showroom), the Panigale V4 Speciale is available across all Ducati dealerships in Delhi – NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Kochi, Kolkata and Chennai.
