Feast your eyes on Panigale V4 replicas inspired by MotoGP, WSBK, and WorldSSP liveries.

Ducati is commemorating its outstanding success in the MotoGP, WorldSBK, and WorldSSP championships by unveiling five special collector's edition Panigale series motorcycles. These unique editions draw inspiration from the racing machines of Francesco Bagnaia, Jorge Martín, Marco Bezzecchi, Álvaro Bautista, and Nicolò Bulega, each representing a specific livery and racing number.

The motorcycles were showcased during a press conference previewing "Campioni in Festa," an event where Ducati celebrated its historic achievements with enthusiasts. 2023 marked an unprecedented year for Ducati, securing victories in consecutive MotoGP and WorldSBK World Championships, along with the WorldSSP title.

These five Ducati limited edition motorcycles will be numbered, and each will bear the rider's original autograph on the tank, protected by a layer of transparent varnish. The replicas feature racing numbers corresponding to the dedicated riders: 63 for Pecco Bagnaia, 19 for Álvaro Bautista, 89 for Jorge Martín, 72 for Marco Bezzecchi, and 11 for Nicolò Bulega.

Exclusively offered in single-seater configuration, the Panigale 2023 Racing Replicas boast billet aluminum steering plates, engraved model names and progressive numbers, unique keys and dash animations on startup, and special seats displaying the rider's logo. Technical enhancements include the adoption of a nine-disc STM-EVO SBK dry clutch, Akrapovič homologated silencers, Stylema R calipers, and Rizoma billet aluminum footpegs.

The Panigale V4 Bagnaia 2023 World Champion Replica, limited to 263 units, showcases the iconic Ducati Yellow livery raced in Misano. The Panigale V4 Bautista 2023 World Champion Replica, limited to 219 units, replicates the Ducati Yellow livery of Álvaro Bautista's WorldSBK victory at Jerez.

The Panigale V2 Bulega 2023 World Champion Replica, limited to 111 units, mirrors Nicolò Bulega's red/black livery that secured the WorldSSP title. The Panigale V2 variant is enhanced with Öhlins suspension and Akrapovič racing silencers, reducing weight and increasing power and torque.

Each motorcycle comes with a certificate of authenticity and is delivered in a wooden packing case with dedicated graphics and a customized motorcycle cover.
