Ducati has launched a special limited-edition Panigale V4 25 Anniversario 916 to commemorate 25 years of the iconic Ducati 916.

The Ducati 916 was brought to life from Massimo Tamburini’s sketches and soon grew to become one of the most popular and successful bikes in the world. The 916 has a rich and prestigious legacy that follows it. The 916 SBK has won 120 races, 8 constructors’ titles and 6 riders’ titles, four of them with Carl Fogarty.

Ducati plans to keep this 25-year-old legacy going with a new special limited-edition Panigale V4 25 Anniversario 916. The Panigale V4 25 Anniversario 916 is based on the Panigale V4 S. It has been designed to Ducati Corse specifications and comes with forged magnesium wheels, a titanium type-approved Akrapovič exhaust and a long list of Ducati Performance components.

Sergi Canovas, Managing Director of Ducati India said, “The Ducati 916 is one of the most iconic motorcycles to have come out of the Borgo Panigale factory and it redefined design and performance at its time. At Ducati, we’re very proud of our heritage and what better way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the 916 than to produce an ultra-exclusive version of the Panigale V4, recognizing our present and the past. The Panigale V4 25° Anniversary 916 is coming to India and I’m sure bike enthusiasts and collectors alike will appreciate its uniqueness.”

 

 

The Panigale V4 25° Anniversario 916 is set to arrive in dealerships from October 2019 at a price of Rs 54,90,000 (Ex-showroom)
