215PS Ducati Panigale V4 SP2 Breaks Cover

And it is coming to India this year

The 2022 World Ducati Premiere has finally come to conclusion with the unveiling of the new Panigale V4 SP2 – the top-spec member of the Panigale V4 family. Though the changes are not radical, the SP2 gets a few additional goodies over the improvements Ducati made on the 2022 Panigale V4.

So, the Ducati Panigale V4 SP2 benefits from the changes made to the chassis by changing the pivot point for the swingarm, offering better anti-squat movement under hard acceleration. It even features the new, smaller winglets. Furthermore, the fork travel has been increased, and softer springs have been used for an improved front-end feel. Lastly, the SP2 also features the new tank and seat design, claimed to improve control over the bike.

The changes specific to the SP2 variant includes a 520 final drive chain, STM-EVO SBK dry clutch, Brembo Stylema R calipers at the front, paired with Brembo MCS (Multiple Click System) radial pump and a remote adjuster. To further enhance the Sport Production (SP) Panigale’s riding experience, Ducati has equipped it with anodised footpegs from Rizoma and carbonfibre wheels.

The 2022 Ducati Panigale V4 SP2 is powered by the same 1103cc Desmosedici Stradale V4 powerhouse, belting out 215PS at 13,000rpm and 123.6Nm, as seen on the other variants. However, the Italian marque gives you an option to push the numbers to an astounding 228PS and 131Nm by slapping on a specially-developed Akrapovic exhaust system; bringing down the weight to 168kg (dry).

As expected from a Ducati, the Panigale V4 SP2 is armed with a full-blown electronic suite that includes four ride modes, traction control, wheelie control, engine braking control and cornering ABS. The bike even features the new MotoGP-derived ‘Track Evo’ display mode.

The top-of-the-line Ducati Panigale V4 is equipped with top-shelf components like Ohlins NPX25/30 fork, Ohlins TTX36 monoshock and even an Ohlins-sourced electronic steering damper. 

Ducati will be shipping out the bikes to dealers March onwards, and just like the Panigale V4 SP, the Indian market will get the SP2 towards the end of this year. However, like the previous India-spec model, the new one too could come with magnesium wheels and Brembo Stylema caliper. That said, expect the bike to be priced around Rs 40 lakh (ex-showroom). And while the SP2’s debut isn’t happening anytime soon, the Panigale V2 Troy Bayliss Edition will be launched here on March 13.
