The Ducati Panigale V4 R has received the LEGO treatment. The Panigale V4 R, the latest model in the LEGO Technic Line, is a first-ever brick reproduction of a Ducati motorcycle and it expresses and respects the values of ‘Style, Sophistication and Performance’ that characterizes the brand. It identifies the maximum expression of Ducati racing bikes homologated for road use, technological excellence, and Italian design worldwide.
The thrill of the engine roar, the adrenaline of acceleration, and the riding position in tackling curves, combined with a breath-taking design; anyone who has ever imagined riding this motorcycle symbol of Italian engineering will love building the LEGO Technic’s Ducati Panigale V4 R set.
The Panigale V4 R is the most powerful and high-performance Ducati of all time, with 221 horsepower (162 kW) delivered at 15,250 rpm (234 hp / 172 kW at 15,500 rpm with the Ducati Performance by Akrapovič full-racing exhaust) thanks to the 998 cc Desmosedici Stradale R, an engine born to compete on the track in the WSBK championship.
The LEGO Technic Ducati Panigale V4 R measures 32 cm in length, 16 cm in height and 8 cm in width and is the first motorcycle model in LEGO Technic history to include a gearbox to simulate different speeds and riding techniques. It will be fantastic to discover how the innovative 2-speed gearbox, exclusive to this new LEGO reproduction, activates the V4 engine, as well as trying the innovative and original front and rear suspension, to simulate a GP ride and feel like an official Ducati rider.
Other striking features are the steering and suspension that give realistic movement, in addition to front and rear disc brakes. Kickstand, exhaust pipe, windscreen, and dashboard are the details that make this bike so faithful to the real version. Last but not least, the red color that accelerates the heartbeat of every Ducati fan.
The LEGO Technic Ducati Panigale V4 R model, created with 646 pieces, is designed for fans aged 10+ and will be available in Ducati dealerships, in the Ducati Online Shop, in LEGO Stores, in the LEGO Online Store and in LEGO Brand Retail Stores from 1st June priced at 59.99 Euro.
