The Special-Edition Ducati Panigale Celebrates 25 Years of the Legendary Superbike
Ducati is celebrating the iconic 916 superbike’s 25th birthday with an exclusive model brimming with racy components.
The Panigale V4 25° Anniversario 916 is based on the Panigale V4 S, a slightly tamer version of their most powerful production bike ever: the V4 R.
Still, it’s got plenty of guts thanks to a 1,103cc Desmosedici Stradale V4 that produces a face-melting 214 horses at 13,000 rpm.
The Italian moto marque has also incorporated much of the V4 R’s MotoGP-worthy equipment, including a Ducati Corse-spec front frame, dry clutch, forged magnesium racing wheels, titanium exhaust, and multiple weight-saving carbon fiber and aluminum parts.
There’s also a ton of track-bred technology on board. Ducati Quick Shift EVO 2 is dialed for aggro gear changes, and active Ducati Traction Control EVO 2 provides greater stability by adjusting for grip loss in corners almost instantaneously.
Complete with a livery lifted from the 996 SBK—winner of the 1999 World Superbike Championship—the Anniversario 916 serves as a fitting tribute to a historic motorcycle.
Ducati notes that the 916 has won 120 World Superbike races and six riders’ titles since its introduction, four of them with racing legend “King” Carl Fogarty.
Priced at $47,294, only 500 Panigale V4 25° Anniversario 916s will be available beginning in October.
