The new Panigale V4 has 43mm diameter Showa Big Piston Forks (BPF). They are fully adjustable for compression and extension of the hydraulic brake and in the spring preload.
This is not the first V4 from Ducati, but the first full-production V4.
Ducati recently produced a small number of gear-actuated, desmo-valved V4 prototype Desmosedici RR models while only two pushrod-actuated, spring-valved V4 Apollo prototypes were made in 1964.
