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. The Panigale V2 is the bike maker's first BS6 offering to the country and the launch had to be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, according to a recent report by Autocar India, the Ducati will be launching the Panigale V2 by the end of August and deliveries are expected to begin in the month of September. Dealers have already started accepting bookings for the entry-level superbike for an amount of Rs 1 lakh. The Ducati Panigale V2 will be replacing the 959 in India.
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.
At the front, the Ducati Panigale V2 will be featuring the brand's signature projector headlights, air dams, and V-shaped DRLs at the front. The new fairing structure allows for more efficient air dams. The Panigale V2 will also be getting a 4.3-inch TFT display for an instrument cluster, a seat that is longer by 20mm than the 959, and an under-slung exhaust.
Mechanically, the Ducati Panigale V2 is powered by a 955cc Superquadro L-twin engine. The unit produces 155bhp of power and 104Nm of peak torque and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. 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.
Braking duties will be handled by Brembo M4.32 monobloc callipers, and Brembo master cylinders with dual discs at the front, and a single disc brake at the rear. The Panigale V2 will also feature an electronics package that includes MU-assisted traction control (called the Ducati Traction Control EVO 2), wheelie control, and cornering ABS.
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.
