The Ducati TriOptions Cup calendar will comprise eight rounds at prestigious UK circuits with two points scoring races per round featuring the new Ducati Panigale V2, superseding the Panigale 959 last season.
The 959 Panigale had been previously raced in the Ducati one-make championship for three years and will continue to be eligible in the championship this year alongside the Panigale V2.
The twin-cylinder Panigale was comprehensively updated, renamed the Panigale V2, with a totally new design. The V2 retains the same the 955 cm³ Superquadro engine but (now Euro 5 compliant) delivers even more power (+5 hp) and torque (+2 Nm). With a maximum power of 155 hp at 10,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 104 Nm at 9,000 rpm.
