The windscreen is taller and more inclined towards the rider. It helps in reducing the airflow which maximizes the aerodynamic efficiency.
This aerodynamic appendages and the special design increase the load, which gives the bike more stability while cornering, braking and it is less likely to float in the air during high speed.
The new Panigale V4 2021 is powered by the 1103 cc which continues to deliver 214 hp at 13,000 rpm.
To improve the V4 handling the suspension setup has been revised and now the emphasis is on the suspension stiffness, center of gravity, and chain force angle.
