2019 Ducati Panigale V4 R in Malaysia – RM299,000

If you feel the run of the mill Ducati Panigale V4 is common or the slightly performance upsized Panigale V4 S – read our ride impression here – is too tame, the 2019 Ducati Panigale V4 R is now in Malaysia, at an eye watering price of RM299,000. The price naturally does not include road tax, insurance or registration and we have a feeling most Panigale V4 Rs, worldwide, will become garage queens or race track weapons.

Differentiating the Panigale V4 R from the base Panigale V4 is the Stradale V-4 engine, which displaces 998 cc against the base model’s 1,103 cc. Despite the engine downsizing because of racing rules, the V4 R produces 221 hp at 15,250 rpm (this is not a typo) and 112 Nm of torque at 11,500 rpm.

As befits a racing Ducati of this calibre, equipment fit out draws from the top shelf of component manufacturers, including Brembo Monobloc Stylema M4.30 brake callipers in front complemented with Bosch Cornering ABS EVO. Suspension is similarly high quality, with a fully-adjustable Ohlins NPX titanium nitrided front fork and Ohlins TTX36 monoshock.

A full suite of electronic riding aids comes as standard, including Bosch Cornering ABS EVO, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO, Ducati Slide Control (DSC), Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO, Ducati Power Launch (DPL). Also included is Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) EVO, Engine Brake Control EVO (EBC) EVO and three ride modes.

A STM EVO-SBK dry clutch is also fitted for that authentic WSBK engine sound, as well as a strengthened and lightened frame, manually adjustable Ohlins steering damper and adjustable swingarm. Marchesini aluminium alloy wheels come standard with an Aero Pack body kit that includes a pair of carbon-fibre wings, TFT-LCD colour screen, lap timer and data analyser and GPS module.
