The Ducati Panigale V4 S is a brand-new era for the Italian brand. While the 1,000cc World Superbikes contender is yet to show, the new 1100cc V4 makes 214PS, 226 with the Akrapovic. And that's housed in a compact, brand-new motorcycle that is less than 6kg heavier than the old 90 degree V-twin. The new frame, new semi-active Ohlins suspension as well as new Brembo brakes all provide the motorcycle with the potential to be incredible. But Ducati cautions that the V4 isn't an all-out performance bike for the experienced. It has the depth for the advanced rider but it also has been designed to be easy enough for an intermediate rider to hop on and learn. The electronic systems - and there are many - work to support both kinds of riders says Ducati. Wow. That's a lot to take in, right? Shumi went to the Valencia to ride the new V4 S and bring you this simplified story.
