World’s fastest production motorbike in global competition first

FRONT PANIGALE V4 SPECIALEAn anonymous British millionaire has put up a new limited edition Ducati Panigale V4 Speciale as the prize in the world’s first global bike competition.



Just 1,500 Ducati Panigale V4 Speciale’s are being made by the renowned Italian manufacturer, which claims it is the fastest, most powerful production bike that the world has ever seen.

With a top speed of 200mph, a new MotoGP-style frame and some of the most advanced electronics in the world, Ducati’s new V4 Panigale has received rave reviews since its launch in 2018.

Now one of the bikes, which have a recommended retail price of £35,000 English pounds, is being offered as the main prize in an online competition raising money for Blood Bikes, whose volunteers provide free medical courier assistance for urgent supplies.

The businessman behind the idea, who wants to remain anonymous, is already offering his own house as a prize in another online fundraising competition.

He said: “One thing led to another. I’m already offering my house in a competition so when this opportunity came along I thought let’s give it a go. The bike is incredible and a joy to ride but it’s also a real collectors’ item as there are only 1500 in existence. We thought a competition would be a great way to raise money for Blood Bikes, a charity that does wonderful work.”

The famous Italian bike maker behind the Panigale describe it as marking a ‘new and important chapter in Ducati’s history, a ‘symphony’ of performance and emotions that’s 100% Italian”.


Adam Child, senior road tester for the likes of Motorcycle News, described the bike as ‘one of the most desirable sportsbikes on the planet’.

The competition is happening at www.ducatiforafiver.co.uk Tickets are £5 English pounds plus a 50p booking fee and you must be aged 18 or over to take part. The bike will be shipped to whoever wins, anywhere in the world, at no cost to the winner.

The main prize also includes leathers and an X-lite helmet worth £1,000. Nine runners up will each receive a reduced weight and compact size X-lite X-803 Ultra Carbon helmet.
27 PANIGALE V4 SPECIALE
The closing date for entries is Sunday September 30. Twenty per cent of the money raised through the competition goes to charities.
