Ducati India has opened the order books for the new Panigale V2 ahead of its market launch in the country.

The Ducati Panigale V2 is a completely new motorcycle featuring a monocoque frame, a more compact twin-cylinder Superquadro engine, a single-sided aluminium swingarm, and familiar Panigale style fairing. The Panigale V2 is powered by Ducati’s 995cc V-Twin engine, which is good for 150.7bhp and 104Nm. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, assisted by a bi-directional quick shifter. The superbike comes with three riding modes: Race, Sport and Street. It comes loaded with safety tech such as wheelie control, traction control, cornering ABS, and engine brake control.
It’s worth noting that the Panigale V2 will be the first BS6 Ducati for India. The bookings for the superbike are now open at Rs 1 lakh until the initial batch of units in the country lasts.
