2019 New PANIGALE V4R with wing in 221PS/193kg


Last November 4, 2018 (5th in Japan), Ducati held a press conference ahead of the Milan show and released its first 2019 model, such as V4R (PANIGALE V4R).

Make a difference with the strongest engine and aerodynamic package

The PANIGALE V4R is a racing bike in the Super Bike World Championship (WSBK) category that is possible to on public roads and will be the base vehicle for the Ducati Super Bike fight in the 2019 season. The PANIGALE V4R is based on the V4S and is modified by the development of the Ducati Corse to enhance the combat power. Instead of the 1103cc V4 engine of PANIGALE V4S, it is 998cc DESMOSEDICI STRADALE R engine, which compatible with the engine displacement determined by SBK regulation. The engine is the output characteristic of the main circuit running, the maximum output is 221ps (162kw). In addition, the maximum output rotation was 15250rpm and 2250rpm was raised than the 1103CC V4.

The unique aerodynamics package developed by Ducati Corse has a screen that reduces air resistance, includes upper cowls, and side cowl. It also features an air vent with a special shape to guide cooling air. The carbon fiber wing derived from DESMOSEDICI GP 16 of MotoGP machine enhances the stability in every speed range, giving the rider a sense of security with minimal intervention frequency of electronic control. This allows the throttle to be opened longer and the braking before the corner can be slowed to the maximum.

[DUCATI PANIGALE V4R 2019 Type European Specifications] One year from the announcement of the V4/S, the V4R of 998cc, which finally becomes the race correspondence engine displacement appeared. Not only to demonstrate the strongest 221ps in history but also wing has been fitted as STD. The suspension is mechanically adjusted.

As with the Moto GP, the form of R which began in the research of CFD (Computer Fluid Dynamics) and was built through the process of manufacturing a full-scale wind tunnel model from the prototype of the shape. It is a one-sided 15mm in the upper-end, and the side is made of 38mm wide, and the screen is also enhanced.

234ps with an optional exhaust system

The engine of the V4R is the highest output 221ps (162kw)/15250rpm, demonstrating a maximum torque of 11.4 kg-m (112Nm)/11500rpm. The compression ratio is 14:1, rev limiter is set to 16000rpm (6-speed 16500rpm). These figures are phenomenal as 998cc engines but are further raised by mounting the Akrapovic-made Ducati performance exhaust, the highest output reaches 234ps (172kw)/15500rpm.

Like the DESMOSEDICI STRADALE, the “R” version is a 90-degree V4 with a cylinder that leans back 42-degrees, a twin-pulse ignition sequence, and a reverse-rotating crankshaft. This newly designed steel forged crankshaft designed to function as a rigid member of the vehicle body, the stroke is short stroked to 48.4mm (1103cc is 53.5mm) while maintaining the 81mm bore. The four titanium connecting rods are 100 grams lighter and the crankshaft is 1100 grams lighter, compared to the steel that is used in the PANIGALE V4.

The camshaft is equipped with an exclusive profile and drives 16-valves by increasing the lift amount compared to the DESMOSEDICI STRADALE (34mm diameter titanium intake valve, 27.5mm diameter steel exhaust valve). In the R version of the engine, a new and larger intake duct has been developed as a result of the use of a fluid mechanical design exclusive to the cylinder head.

NA strongest 221ps in less than 1000㏄. With an optional exhaust system, the 234ps power of the 231PS is greater than that of the 2019-type H2.

High-efficiency wing than MotoGP machine

In the highlights of the changes in the PANIGALE V4R, it was Wing that brought the biggest change in appearance. This is based on the wing concept used in DESMOSEDICI GP16 (before the shape was regulated), but it is said that it is even more efficient in comparison to those used in the MotoGP.

The monoplane wing has a trapezoidal layout, which gradually becomes narrower from the root to the tip. The performance of the wing is further raised by a wing-let that protects the air flowing through the surface with a strake arranged in the longitudinal direction. The wing in conjunction with the fairing design improves the overall downforce of the machine (+30kg at 270km/h) and suppresses Willie during high-speed driving. In addition, the stability during braking at the turn-in point and the corner are improved.

As a result of increased stability in the wing mounting, it can be expected to shorten the lap time. The intervention of electronic control is kept to a minimum, and it is possible to open the throttle until the start of cornering and delay the breaking.

An air vent like ERA, similar to S1000RR, also features a PANIGALE V4R. This has succeeded in raising the air-through speed of the radiator and oil cooler by 6% and 16% respectively.

The tank is made of the same aluminum as the 16L PANIGALE V4/S. The feature of R is not colored.

New equipment R unique pit switch. It is possible to operate a pit/limiter that can be adjusted at 40km/h to 80km/h to accommodate the speed limit at tire lane.

There is only one passenger seat, and the seat is R exclusive for product. The vehicle name logo is specially embroidered.

The 5-inch TFT meter is common with other series (upper left). The front adopts an exclusive 43mm-diameter pressurized NPX25-30 fork with a tin treatment (upper left, lower right). The rear is TTX36 (upper right), both manual adjustment type. The brakes are made of Brembo Stylema Mono-block caliper (lower right), and the Marchesini aluminum forging wheel (lower) is adopted before and after.
