Ducati's history is traditionally linked to the world of the Superbike World Championship and the bikes that have dominated it over the decades. Classic models, powered by powerful twin-cylinder engines strictly commanded by desmodromic distribution, the true stylistic signature of the Bolognese manufacturer, capable of thrilling both on the track and on the road.

The full Officine Italiane Zard exhaust kit for Ducati Panigale V2

Backed by its long experience in the creation of exhaust systems for Ducati superbikes, Officine Italiane Zard introduces its system for the Panigale V2, with those enthusiasts who use their supersport bike not only on the track but also and above all on the road in mind. Zard has created a complete racing exhaust, consisting of stainless steel headers and silencers with a titanium body and carbon fibre end caps, paying particular attention to detail and design. Dominating the Zard kit are the silencers positioned under the Panigale V2 tailpipe, which are immediately reminiscent of some of the most iconic Ducatis, such as the unforgettable 916/996/998 or the more recent 1098/1198. The titanium silencers have a triangular design that ideally connects to the cavities of the original Ducati rear end and are graced by carbon fibre end caps with asymmetrical profiles.

Not just design: the performance of the new Zard kit for Ducati Panigale V2

Design then, but not only. The new positioning of the silencers required delicate fine tuning work by the Zard R&D team, completely rethinking the path of the hand-welded stainless steel manifolds, which now run below the engine. The result of this work is a marked improvement in torque and power values compared to the OEM system and a soulful and exciting power delivery, as well as a distinctive sound, typically Ducati but also typically Zard. The Zard racing full kit for Ducati Panigale V2 will be enhanced by the exclusive impulso by Zard control unit: the additional module designed to maximise the potential of the Zard exhaust and the Italian V2!

From road to track: the carbon fibre racing fairing kit for the Ducati Panigale V2

Also closely derived from racing is the new, fascinating fairing panel kit created by Zard in collaboration with Plastic Bike. Made from a mix of carbon and Kevlar composite fibres, the set fully replaces the original bodywork components, ensuring absolute lightness and mechanical stress resistance that is... race-proof! The exposed fibres, with satin or glossy finish, interrupted only by the contrasting red profiles, complete the look of the Zard exhaust and give the Panigale V2 a whole new appeal, elegant and sporty at the same time.  The carbon fibre and Kevlar fairing kit by Zard and Plastic Bike consists of several sets, for a total conversion of the Panigale V2. There are in fact four packages available: starting from the most extensive fairing kit, which also includes the fairing cowl and tail, to the covers for the rear swingarm, front and rear mudguards and tank protectors. A whole new tailoring outfit to transform your Panigale V2 - in both sound and style.
