Ducati Panigale V2

The Ducati Panigale V2 is a 955 cc (58.3 cu in) sport bike manufactured by Ducati as the successor to the Panigale 959. The motorcycle is named after the small manufacturing town of Borgo Panigale. It was announced in 2019 for the 2020 model year. Chassis was a very similar monocoque with stressed member engine; the engine bore and stroke remained the same; some re-engineering resulted in a 5 horsepower (3.7 kW) power increase and Euro 5 emissions compliance.[1]
