Bologna, Italy, December 15, 2022 - Ducati celebrates the double victory of the MotoGP and WorldSBK titles by creating two unique series of Panigale V4 bikes inspired by the Desmosedici GP and Panigale V4 R of World Champions Francesco Bagnaia and Alvaro Bautista. The celebratory motorcycles were unveiled during the press conference anticipating “Campioni in Piazza2”, the event where Ducati celebrates this historic double achievement with its fans.

2022 has been an incredible year for Ducati. The Bologna-based manufacturer is World Champion, for the first time in its history, in both MotoGP and WorldSBK in the same season. A dream result that came true, thanks to the exceptional work of the engineers, teams, and riders. A double triumph that Ducati wanted to celebrate with two unique, collectible models.

The two special series, made on the base of the Panigale V4 S, will feature the liveries of Pecco Bagnaia #63 and Alvaro Bautista #19 bikes. In addition, each motorcycle in the series will be made unique by the original autograph of the rider on the tank, which will then be protected with a layer of clear varnish. The two motorcycles, produced in a numbered and limited series, celebrate the year of Ducati’s birth in their production numbers. Each series will consist of only 260 units in honor of 1926, the year the company was founded.

Like the race bikes they are inspired by, the Panigale V4 2022 World Champion Replica bikes are offered in a single-seat configuration. The billet aluminum upper clamp enhances them with laser engraving of the model name and progressive number. The technical equipment boasts adopting the nine-disc STM-EVO SBK dry clutch, street-legal silencer (2 kg lighter than the Panigale V4’s stock unit), Brembo braking system enhanced by Stylema┬« R calipers, and MCS master cylinder with remote adjuster, Rizoma billet aluminum adjustable footpegs and racing plexiglass.

Other technical details that characterize these special bikes are the rear exhaust manifold heat shield, alternator cover, front and rear fenders, and front brake ducts, all made of carbon fiber. Also made of carbon fiber, combined with titanium, is the cover protecting the single-sided swingarm. Finally, the series dedicated to Alvaro Bautista #19 features the brushed aluminum tank found on the more refined versions of the Panigale V4.

Each bike will be delivered in a packing case with dedicated graphics, a certificate of authenticity, a custom bike cover, and the Ducati Data Analyser.
