Gallery: Redding and Brookes test Panigale V4 R

Published: 30 November 2018

Scott Redding and Josh Brookes got their first taste of the Ducati Panigale V4 R they will ride for the Be Wiser Ducati team in the 2019 British Superbike Championship.

While the PBM squad’s BSB-spec bikes aren’t quite available yet, Redding and Brookes were let loose around Jerez on two of Alvaro Bautista and Chaz Davies’ Aruba Ducati machines.

The biggest difference in spec between WSB and BSB is the MoTeC electronics used in BSB, but Ducati Corse engineers turned off the rider aids on the Magneti Marelli system fitted to the full fat World Superbike to mimic BSB regulations for the duo.
