Ducati To launch The BS6 Panigale V2 By The End Of August: Details & Specifications

Ducati had teased the Panigale V2 earlier this year in April and was supposed to launch soon after the teaser video. Moreover, Ducati was affected badly as the BS6 normas got mandatory in the country from April 1 this year as the motorcycles were not updated.

We had also reported earlier that Ducati will not be launching the White Rosso colour scheme (which was unveiled earlier this month) for the Panigale V2 in India for the time being. So, buyers will have to go for the signature Ducati red colour scheme.

The Panigale V2 also borrows the full electronics kit from the previous generation 959 model, but with a reworked traction control system that performs more efficiently.

Thoughts About The BS6 Ducati Panigale V2

The Ducati Panigale V2 is a beautiful looking motorcycle and despite the new upgraded BS6 compliant engine, the motorcycle makes 5bhp more than the older BS4 compliant ones. We also hope that the company launches the White Rosso paint scheme soon in the country.
