LEGO unveils Ducati Panigale V4 R

 

Whether you’re ten years old or seventy, you can always trust LEGO to conquer your boredom, especially during this dreaded COVID-19 era. So, if you’re an Italian sportsbike fan or not, LEGO have provided a £55 version of the £35,000 Ducati Panigale V4 R. Finally, a Panigale we can all afford.

Available from 1st June, this 646-piece LEGO Technic model is the first to be created after a licensing agreement was recently signed between the LEGO Group and Ducati Motor Holding.

It’s also the first LEGO Technic motorbike to feature a 2-speed gearbox which activates the V4-cylinder engine. Additional features include front and rear suspension, a unique kickstand, front and rear disc brakes, an exhaust pipe, fly screen and a dashboard are also some of the small details that make this replica model true to the full-size version.

Aurélien Rouffiange, Senior Designer at LEGO Technic, said, “It was essential that I included as many authentic details from the real motorbike as I could, ensuring I captured all the bike’s curves and the unique features. We demonstrated what the LEGO Technic range is capable of by engineering a fully functioning motorcycle gearbox for the first time and connecting it to the spinning V4 cylinder engine using existing pieces.”
