The bike comes with the new “Winter Test" livery that takes inspiration from the Ducati Corse bikes used in the pre-season tests of the MotoGP and SBK Championships. This sets it apart from the standard Panigale V4 S. It features matt black on the fairings, combined with the Marchesini Forged Magnesium Wheels, and contrast bright red accents that leak through the exposed brushed aluminium tank.
Bits that make truly make it a track-ready machine include the carbon front mudguard and the adjustable rider footpegs in billet aluminium which can be set up as per the rider's preferred position in the saddle. It also gets several track days oriented accessories such as the open carbon clutch cover, caps for removing the license plate holder and mirrors, as well as the Ducati Data Analyzer + (DDA +) telemetry kit with a GPS module that allows the rider to analyse the performance professionally.
At the heart of the bike sits a 1,103 cc Desmosedici Stradale engine. For the record, it is a 90° V4 with Desmodromic distribution derived from MotoGP. It is capable of churning out 214 hp of maximum power at 13,000 rpm, and 12.6 Kgm of peak torque at 9,500 rpm.
