2018 Ducati Panigale V4 First Ride Video

A few laps of the Valencia MotoGP Circuit with Zack Courts

It's another new-bike ride with Zack! This time he flew off to Valencia, Spain, to take a spin on the production-ready version of Ducati's new Panigale V4. For someone who has never really gotten along with a Panigale superbike, he seems pretty stoked on sailing down the front straight and carving through corners on the new V4. Then again, a sunny day on a MotoGP track is probably enough to make almost any gearhead smile. For more of Zack's thoughts on this new bike, plus a technology overview, and more Panigale V4 content, see the links below.
