Only five units of the mighty Ducati Panigale V4 R have been allocated for the Indian market. Out of those five, the first two units have been successfully delivered to the owners, Aakash Rajshakha and Monty Singh, by Ducati India’s dealer in Delhi NCR, North Star Automotive. We are expecting to see the bikes in action at the BIC soon.
Commenting on the occasion, Sergi Canovas, Managing Director of Ducati India said, “We are very proud to deliver the first two units of the ultimate Panigale V4 R in India which is a testament to the success the brand has witnessed here. Panigale V4 R is the pinnacle of motorcycling. It’s the ultimate road-legal race bike, perfect to serve the growing interest of riders who are riding on the racetrack and marks an important chapter in the superbike segment in India. With this, we welcome the riders to the Ducati family and are excited to witness the domination of the new Panigale V4 R at the racetracks in India.”
The Panigale V4 R is Ducati’s flagship product which costs a whopping Rs 51.8 lakh! It isn’t the most expensive motorcycle that we’ve seen in India but it definitely is the most powerful road-legal production motorcycle that money can buy right now. It is powered by a 998cc 90° V4 engine which produces 221hp at 15,250rpm and when equipped with the Akrapovic racing exhaust, the power increases to 234hp! And it weighs just 165.5kg (dry). You do the math! It also comes with all the advanced electronics and equipment you can think of.
Bookings for the remaining three units of the Panigale V4 R are open across all Ducati dealerships in the country. We’re pretty confident that these too will be sold very soon.
