LEGO announced a new model replica of the iconic Italian motorcycle, combining LEGO Technic and Ducati design DNA to recreate the curves and aerodynamic form of the two-wheeled wonder. The LEGO version transports LEGO builders to new heights as they easily act out the tight turns and fast straights that the bike can easily navigate thanks to its powerful engine.

Builders can discover how the innovative 2-speed gearbox activates the V4-cylinder engine and appreciate the rear and front suspension. The model’s unique kickstand means that builders can park the superbike model up and proudly put it on display it once it has been put through its paces.

The LEGO Technic Ducati Panigale V4 R comes in classic red and is the first motorcycle model in LEGO Technic history to include a gearbox that allows builders to navigate through different speeds. Features include realistic steering, suspension to help with high-octane action and front and rear disc brakes. An exhaust pipe, a windshield and a dashboard are also some of the small details that make this replica model so true to the full-size version.

“The Ducati Panigale V4 R is such an elegant Italian icon and a true technological masterpiece,” commented Aurélien Rouffiange, Senior Designer at LEGO Technic. “It was essential that I included as many authentic details from the real motorbike as I could when designing the new LEGO Technic version, ensuring I captured all the bike’s curves and the unique features. Just as Ducati continually pushes boundaries in its design, we demonstrated what the LEGO Technic range is capable of by engineering a fully functioning motorcycle gearbox for the first time and connecting it to the spinning V4 cylinder engine using existing pieces.”

“We have all been kids passionate about LEGO bricks and I think it is easy to understand that this new licensing agreement between Ducati and the LEGO Group is like a dream come true. We are two brands that share the same values of dedication, passion and attention to detail – values that have come together to give life to a unique building experience” said Alessandro Cicognani, Ducati Licensing Director. “Our hope is that the Ducati Panigale V4 R LEGO Technic can bring together, excite and entertain not only children and parents, but also all the fans who ride their motorcycles every day.”

The LEGO Technic Ducati Panigale V4 R model is designed for fans aged 10+ and will be available from 1st June retailing at 59.99 euros (US $65).
