Ducati and LEGO have come up with a bomb and it really looks super hot! This Ducati Panigale V4 R will be your kid's new crush and yours too if you are a Ducati fan. This Ducati V4 R LEGO Technic model has 646 bricks which are supposed to be put together to craft this masterpiece. It even has working front and rear suspension and a 2-speed gearbox!
The first-ever brick reproduction of a Ducati motorcycle expresses and respects the values of Style, Sophistication and Performance that characterizes the brand. The Ducati V4 R LEGO Technic measures 32cm in length, 16cm in height and 8cm in width. It is the first motorcycle from LEGO Technic which employes a 2-speed gearbox to simulate different speeds and riding techniques.
Aur鬩en 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. Not only a play experience but also a way to learn about mechanics, power and technology. The beginning of a long journey with a lot of fun and passion."
Other amazing deets are the working suspension and steering which actually moves with inputs. Parts like a kickstand, windscreen, front and rear disc brakes, exhaust pipe and dashboard adds to the attention to detail factor. And how can we miss that spanking Ducati red colour which exhilarates everyone!
It is an astonishing tribute to the wild and maniac Ducati Panigale V4 R. A marvellous piece of engineering with a 998 cc engine, most powerful engine from Ducati, churns out 224 Hp at 15250 rpm. This LEGO Technic model will go on sale in August 2020 and you will be able to buy it for $69.99 dollars which translates to around Rs 5,300.
