- Ducati Panigale V2
Ducati has ridden in its updated entry-level sportbike — the Panigale V2 — at a staggering Rs 16.99 lakh (ex-showroom India). That makes it Rs 1.70 lakh dearer than its successor: the 959 Panigale. The price is a bit hard to digest as for just Rs 1.50 lakh more you could avail yourself of the BMW S 1000 RR, a sportbike that is a lot more powerful and a lot more suited for track day hooning.
