2020 Ducati Superleggera V4 Review – First Ride

Here we have the downforce, in pounds, generated by the standard Panigale V4 (light grey) with its single plane wing and the Superleggera (dark grey) and its biplane wings at different speeds. While it’s easy to look at the right side of the chart and see that, at 167 mph or 186 mph you’re basically sticking the weight of a small human (Pedrosa, perhaps?) to the motorcycle, the reality is that very few people are going to reach those speeds. The point here is to highlight how much more downforce the Superleggera’s biplane wings generate – basically 66% more, from as low as 62 mph.
