Ducati has priced the new Panigale V4 SP at the price of INR 36.07 lakh (ex-showroom), which differs from the Panigale V4 S.

Powering the Panigale V4 SP is a 1103cc, Desmosedici Stradale, four-valve, liquid-cooled engine which produces 215 PS of power and 124 Nm of torque. Paired to a 6-speed gearbox, the hydraulically controlled slipper dry clutch features Ducati Quick Shift technology for smoother gear shifts.

At the rear, the bike sports a single 245mm brake disc with a 2-piston calliper and Bosch Cornering ABS.
