Video Review: 2018 Ducati Panigale V4 S


Jeff took the 2018 Ducati Panigale V4 S for a spin at our proving grounds. The technology still stands up to 2022 model bikes, making the V4 S a wild machine. Check out our run down of this amazing bike in the video review below…

We had the V4 S for a week or so and Jeff covered 600km on the bike including a day at our proving ground working through the huge array of electronic settings on the bike. Check out the video to see how the Panigale V4 S handled The Farm!
