The Ducati Panigale V2 was first unveiled globally at the 2019 EICMA. Ducati hasn't confirmed a specific launch date for the Indian market, however, we do expect it in the coming weeks, post the current COVID-19 lockdown period.

The Panigale V2 looks very similar to its larger sibling, the Panigale V4 in terms of design. The smaller Panigale V2 even borrows some of the components from its larger sibling. This includes the single-sided swingarm, along with the entire electronics which include 6-axis IMU-assisted traction control, wheelie control, cornering ABS and engine braking control; among others.

The Ducati Panigale V2 is essentially an updated replacement to the 959 Panigale. The Panigale V2 continues to be underpinned by the monocoque frame, while the suspension and braking components have been carried over from the 959 Panigale as well.

What has changed, however, is the exhaust system. Ducati has now incorporated an underbelly exhaust, with a stubby side exit. This replaces the side-slung twin exhausts from the 959 Panigale.
