We take the Ducati Panigale V4 S to the proving ground to work through the electronics and test the limits... Video Review: Jeff Ware, Kris Hodgson

Check out our video review of the all-new Panigle V4 S. For the tech blurb click on our Ducati V4 Engine tech feature or the Ducati V4 World launch report. You can also read our first impression press intro and First Ride.

We had the V4 S for a week or so and Jeff covered around 600km on the bike including a day at our proving ground working through the huge array of electronic settings on the bike. Our full review write up will be up soon and will include the road test but until then, there is plenty of info in the track based video.
