At the EICMA in Milan (-12.11.), Ducati is celebrating the 30th birthday of the iconic 916 design and is presenting the numbered special model "30° Anniversario 916" of the Panigale V4 SP2. In terms of design and equipment, it takes up all kinds of elements of the famous role model.
The legendary Tricolore stripes on the fairing and the white fields with the number "1" of the '99 world champion Carl Fogarty have been interpreted in a modern way, while the black upper part of the fairing is reminiscent of the intake pipes of the 916. The tank cover features the golden laurel wreath, just like the original. The silver "916" logo on the fairing, which could already be found on the 1994 model, has also been given a modern makeover and looks almost three-dimensional thanks to the golden outline.
The Panigale V4 SP2 30° Anniversario 916 is being produced in a limited series of 500 units with a certificate of authenticity. The model name and vehicle number are immortalized by laser engraving in the upper triple clamp. Like the racing motorcycle, the anniversary model is only available as a single-seater. The Panigale V4 SP2 30° Anniversario 916 has a racing tank cover made of milled aluminum and ventilation ducts for cooling the front brake calipers and clutch cover. The winglets with double profile, the front mudguard and the heat protection of the exhaust system are made of carbon. The adjustable footrests made of milled aluminum allow the riding position to be adapted to personal preferences and the DQS (Ducati Quick Shifter) can be used in normal or reversed shifting mode.
