Click here for an VINData Motorcycle History Report on this 2018 Ducati Panigale V4 Speciale. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Alongside the launch of its V4 and V4S Pangiales, Ducati also unveiled a third, even more exclusive model known dubbed the V4 Speciale. Billed as the most desirable superbike on the planet, it touted a sharp Tricolore livery and a suite of top-shelf parts from the Ducati and Rizoma catalogs.

So, along with some fully adjustable Öhlins electronic suspension — NIX-30 USD forks up front and a TTX36 monoshock at the rear — it was also specced with Brembo Stylema calipers, an adjustable aluminum swingarm, and a set of forged aluminum Marchesinis. Dry weight came in at 195kg (429lbs) thanks to lightweight components like a cast magnesium subframe a titanium Akrapovič exhaust system, and a slew of carbon fiber. Assuming you wanted to shed even more mass, Ducati also offered a set of optional forged Magnesium wheels.

For the engine, Ducati utilized its 1,103cc Desmosedici Stradale. In the base Panigale V4, the block was good for 214hp and 91lb-ft of torque. However, the addition of the Akrapovič exhaust, output was upped by some 12hp and 5lb-ft of torque.

Keeping everything in check was an impressive suite of electronic aids based around a six-axis Bosch IMU: along with lean-sensitive ABS, traction control, wheelie control, and slide control, you also got adjustable engine braking and ride modes. Limited to just 1,500 units, MCN described the Speciale best in their review when they said “when you do take it out into the daylight, it turns heads everywhere you go. The booming full-race titanium exhaust grabs everyone’s attention and the styling keeps them looking. There are very few bikes that can match this for exclusivity and desirability.”

This example is VIN: ZDMDAGNW7JB002259. The seller purchased the bike from SoCal Motorcycles in 2019.

It is #0160/1500.

During his ownership, the seller has covered approximately 2,500 miles. The odometer shows 2,665 miles.

Maintenance:
The seller reports that he purchased an extended warranty from Ducati at the time of purchase. Additionally, he had Ducati Santa Monica service the bike in 2022.

Unfortunately, the seller’s storage unit was broken into and this Speciale experienced some cosmetic damage. Accordingly, in June 2023, he had us replace the reservoirs, the windscreen, the instrument cluster, and the lower left fairing. At the time, we also changed the oil and oil filter and the clutch cover.

The seller recently had new tires installed. He notes that they have covered less than 10 miles.

Modifications:
Rotobox wheels, carbon fiber brake ducts.

Ducabike clutch, Ducabike clear clutch cover.

Carbon fiber fluid reservoirs.

Bar-end mirrors.

3M UV wrap.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires with date codes of 2223 and 3523.

The sale includes one key.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:
“The UV wrap has a few very small areas (2-3) where it lifts.”


Currently located in Las Vegas, Nevada, this Ducati is offered on a clean California title with registration current through May 2024. Please note: The seller has an outstanding lien on the bike with America First Credit Union.
