Ducati Panigale V4R TOP SPEED - Pushed to the limit!

But that isn’t stopping Ducati from teasing the bike out just a little bit more. Tonight, the new bike will be officially unveiled to the world, with a live stream on the Ducati website and social media channels.

While we do know a fair amount about the engine – full article here – there are some other aspects of the bike that we are still in the dark about that should be answered tonight.

One of the most interesting areas of the bike is the radar system fitted to the machine. It’s a first for a production model and will help to control the cruise control and other systems on the bike.

The radar mounted on the front-end of the bike will control the Adaptive Cruise Control. This will allow the bike to adjust its own speed in relation to a vehicle further up the road. The system will include multiple levels allowing the rider to select how close to the vehicle in front they want to be and can be activated between 18 and 99 mph.
