Ducati announces a brand-new colour option for the Ducati Panigale V2 which extends the colour range of V2 lineup.

Interested? The Panigale V2 in White Rosso livery will be available in Ducati dealers from July 2020!
The new White Rosso livery comes with Star white silk as its main colour which really highlights the line and geometrical shape of the Panigale V2. On top of this; the Ducati red colour rims, red accents around the front air intakes and fairing further complement the powerful character of this V2 monster. Ducati says; “These last two red touches ideally accompany the path of the airflows inside the motorcycle, i.e. those that feed the engine and those that pass through the radiator.” Furthermore, the new livery features a large Panigale V2 logo, inspired by the graphics of Ducati Corse motorcycle; which completes the new livery.
The Italian motorcycle racer, Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia from Pramac Racing Team was able to enjoy the preview of the bike, where he got to test the bike at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.
Francesco “Pecco” Bagnaia:
“Since 2016, my personal motto has been #GoFree. For me it means living in a light-hearted and carefree way; having fun and giving priority to the things you love to do. I think the Panigale V2 fits well with this definition and reflects my way of being “, said Pecco Bagnaia after trying the Panigale V2. “The new livery, so white, is very beautiful and different from the usual. Despite being a street bike, it surprised me how much speed it can have when cornering. It is a fun, very stable and very sincere bike that allows you to go fast, safely, without becoming tired, while having a very strong and decisive character and personality.”
