Ducati has officially updated the Panigale V4 range with more power and refined electronics for 2023.
- Gets new electronic package including Ducati Engine Brake Control EVO 2.
- New Ducati quick shifter system and extra horsepower.
The Panigale V4 and V4 S have received much attention since its introduction in 2019. Mainly for their MotoGP-derived engine and electronic package.
Despite the significant upgrade compared to its previous twin-cylinder Panigales, the V4 and V4 S continue to run on the same chassis design.
Nevertheless, Ducati has carried out a series of updates for the 2023 Panigale V4 and V4 S.
According to the Borgo Panigale factory, the V4 and V4 S get a new Ducati Corse-derived electronic package that helps to improve comfort, precision and performance.
The 2023 Panigale V4 and V4 S are now equipped with new Ducati Engine Brake Control EVO 2 software, a brand-new Ducati Quick Shift and further refinements for Ducati Traction Control and Ride-by-Wire system.
In addition, Ducati also improved engine heat management with a new cooling fan control strategy.
Also, the V4 engine now makes 215.5 horsepower, with the 1st, 2nd and 6th gear adjusted for a longer ratio.
Ducati also improved the torque management, which should now allow for a refined feel during the first touch of the throttle.
For those who just purchased the 2022 model, worry not, as the aforementioned updates can also be applied to the 2022 Panigale V4 and V4 SP.
