Ever since the launch of the 2018 Ducati Panigale V4, people have been enquiring regarding the prices for the worldwide market.
While it’s confirmed that the bike will cost from €22,590 (RM110,182) to €39,900 (RM194,608) in Europe, we thought that it might be priced between RM180,000 to RM250,000 once it’s here in Malaysia.
Rumours and gossips have pointed out that it might be cheaper than we initially thought which might be priced below RM150,000 or as low as RM120,000.
Ever since the Ducati Panigale V4 news broke out worldwide earlier this year, people have been talking about it non-stop from how much MotoGP technology will be embedded into it to how much of a fortune you need to spend on Ducati’s first ever four-cylinder production superbike.
Some spy photos of the Ducati Panigale V4 surfaced online back in June and the hype was properly built up to the engine unveiling before the bike was completed. Dubbed the “Desmosedici Stradale”, it carries a displacement of 1,103cc and produces a whopping 212hp and 120Nm of maximum torque.

Ducati then decided to drop the bomb right before the EICMA 2017 show in Milan with not just one Panigale V4 but three gorgeous 2018 models; the standard Panigale V4, Panigale V4 S, and the limited edition Panigale V4 Speciale.

We managed to find out how much these babies will cost in the European market and boy oh boy, there don’t come cheap. For the standard model, you’ll need to cough up a good €22,590 (RM110,182) whereas the S version will set you back around €27,890 (around RM136,055). Interested in the limited Panigale V4 Speciale? In Europe, you’ll need a whopping €39,900 (RM194,608) and that’s if you’re lucky or quick enough to book one before it sells out.

According to reliable sources, the figures pointed towards the new Panigale V4 being more expensive than the outgoing Ducati 1299 Panigale. We know for a fact the 1299 costs RM172,999 here in Malaysia (basic price with GST) and assumed that once the Panigale V4 arrives here on our shores, it would be somewhere between RM180,000 up to RM250,000.
We dug deeper and check this; rumours have pointed out that it might be CHEAPER that we initially thought. Through hot gossips and informative chitchat over coffee and other hot beverages, the Panigale V4 might be priced somewhere below the RM150,000 mark and it might go as low as RM120,000!
Although RM120,000 is still a lot of money to spend on a motorcycle, it is still quite a bargain considering this bike is the closest thing that most of normal folks could ever get to owning a MotoGP bike. There are some Desmosedici RR roaming around but it is nowhere near close in terms of production or price compared to the Panigale V4.
We are enjoying this rumour very much but we can only know for sure once Ducati Malaysia makes the official announcement sometime next year. Hot bike with an even hotter price, what else could you ask for?
