Ducati has put all speculations about its upcoming motorcycle to rest by unveiling the all-new V4 Panigale superbike, just before the EICMA 2017. Unarguably, it is one of the most amazing looking motorcycles, something that is a given when comes to a Ducati. Under those flowing, razor sharp lines, lies an all-new motor that bids farewell to the iconic L-Twin unit. The new 1103cc, 90-degree Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine produces 214PS at 13,000rpm and 119Nm of torque between 8,750rpm to 12,250rpm. The engine can rev up to 14,000rpm and Ducati says that it doesn't need a counter balancer because of the 90-degree V-angle. There will be three models on sale next year, the base, S and the Speciale. The S gets Ohlins suspension whereas the Speciale features a full-blown titanium exhaust that unleashes 226PS.
