Ducati Malaysia has officially launched the Ducati Panigale V4 R 2023 for the local market with an official selling price of RM458,900.
This Ducati Panigale V4 R 2023 is capable of producing 218hp at 15,500rpm. However, with the combination of a new ‘racing’ exhaust and new oil developed by Shell, this 2023 model is able to reach a whopping 240.5hp.
The maximum rev of this 2023 machine has also been set at 16,500rpm in 6th gear. This guarantees a higher ‘top speed’ than before.
The sudden increase in power is also due to the ‘connecting rod titanium’ and piston coated with DLC (diamond-like carbon coating). This is the first time Ducati has introduced the feature on a road bike.
In addition, Ducati also retuned the geometry of the piston and succeeded in lowering the inertial force while reducing the weight of the piston by 5 grams.
Other upgrades introduced include two new riding mode packages that include ‘Full’ and ‘Low’ modes. The ‘Full’ mode is for those who want to enjoy the real performance of the Panigale V4 R. On the other hand, the ‘Low’ mode lowers the power to 160hp for riding in urban areas.
Ducati also reworked the quickshifter system so that gear changes are smoother at partial and full throttle. Like the previous model, the 2023 Panigale V4 R is still loyal to Ohlins components. However, the NPX25/30 pressure fork in front now offers 5mm more travel.
Ducati also raised the swingarm pivot by 20mm. The tank of the bike is now 17L just like the Ducati Panigale V4 S.
Not to forget, all Ducati Panigale V4 R 2023 models now come with a serial number written on the steering head.
