This kit will be on sale at Ducati dealerships and in the Ducati Online Shop, as well as in the entire LEGO sales network, starting from June 1, 2020, priced at 59.99 Euro (approximately Rs 4,995).
The LEGO Technic Ducati Panigale V4 R measures 32cm in length, 16cm in height and 8cm in width and is the first motorcycle model in the kit manufacturer's history to include a gearbox to simulate different speeds and riding techniques. Other striking features are the steering and suspension that give realistic movement, in addition to front and rear disc brakes. LEGO mentions, that the kickstand, exhaust pipe, windscreen and dashboard are the details that make the scale model resemble the actual bike very closely.

"The Ducati Panigale V4 R is such an elegant icon and a masterpiece of technology," states Aurélien Rouffiange, Senior Designer of LEGO Technic. "It was essential for me to include as many details and features as I could, to capture all the curves and the unique design of the Red icon, to create for the first time a functioning gearbox and steering as well as a V4 cylinder engine that spins. To me riding is all about the sensation you feel in connection with the road on your motorcycle. I hope that building the LEGO Technic Panigale V4 R model brings you the same excitement."
