Ducati Panigale V4R Acceleration Times
Ducati Panigale V4R top speed and acceleration data through the gears accompanied with Dyno curve and thrust curve graphs.
Ducati Panigale V4R Dyno Curve
The 998 cc Ducati Panigale V4R is one of the most powerful and high-revving normally aspirated production motorcycle and produces 205 horsepower at an incredibly high 15500 rpm to the rear wheel. Torque is a very impressive 79 ft/lb at 11500 rpm.
The engine is ballistically fast but does require typically higher rpm to get moving versus other 1000 cc competitors but is almost untouchable at the top of the rpm with perhaps the exception of the latest S1000RR and CBR1000RR-R.
Ducati Panigale V4R Thrust Curve
The V4R may have less horsepower and torque than the 1100 cc V4 but as the engine can rev higher the V4R does run with lower gearing.
Individual gears are the same but the V4R runs with a 42 rear sprocket and 15 front versus a 41 rear and 16 front in the larger 1100 V4.
This means that despite the lower torque and power through the rev range the V4R can match the V4 in terms of in-gear acceleration though will be tunning higher rpm.
The Panigale V4R is perhaps (if excluding the Superleggera) likely the fastest accelerating motorcycle in the world. Perhaps not from a dig but certainly if moving at any speed and to 180-190 mph there is not much that can touch it.
From a dig, the V4R is nothing special with a 0-60 mph time of 3.03 seconds and 0-100 mph time in 5.30 seconds, times which are all standard for most 1000 cc motorcycles. 0-200 km/h is a little over 7 seconds at 7.09 seconds.
It is not until the V4R gets into third gear that it is able to really start putting its power down effectively as it charges toward the quarter-mile hooking fourth and passing with a time of 9.95 seconds and at a crazy high 159 mph terminal which really demonstrates the V4R’s top end power.
After the quarter mile, the V4R still charges extremely hard as it continues and clocks 180 mph in only 13.54 seconds. The top speed for the Ducati V4R is 198 mph but with an ECU flash and restrictions removed 210-215 mph would easily be achieved.
