    The Ducati Panigale V2 will carry a higher price than the outgoing Panigale 959.

    Ducati will launch its first BS6 motorcycle in India, the Panigale V2, on August 26.

    • The Panigale V2 is expected to be priced around Rs 16-16.5 lakh

    • It makes an additional 5hp for a total of 155hp

    • Ducati has even given the V2 a single-sided swingarm

    Like almost every other Ducati sold in India, the Panigale V2 will come in as a CBU from the company’s manufacturing plant in Thailand. The exact number of bikes coming in is not certain for the moment, but we believe they will arrive in small lots, as Ducati India did with the Panigale V4.

    We had the opportunity to ride the Panigale V2 at its international launch in Jerez earlier this year. The V2 uses the same 955cc L-twin motor from the Panigale 959, albeit reworked to meet the stricter emissions norms, while also making an additional 5hp for a total of 155hp. The rest of the bike has taken a big jump forward – it now features a more comprehensive electronics package and a stunning design, both based on the original Panigale V4. Ducati has even given the V2 a single-sided swingarm.

    The Panigale 959 was priced at Rs 15.3 lakh (ex-showroom), and we believe that the Panigale V2 will be priced at Rs 16-16.5 lakh. Deliveries will likely begin in September.
