The bike features a new fairing to enable better cooling without compromising on the aerodynamics.
The MotoGP-derived 1103 cc Desmosedici Stradale engine gets a new silencer and an oil pump leading to an increase in power by 1.5 HP to 215.5 HP at 13,000 RPM and 123.6 Nm at 9500 RPM. Over 100 Nm torque is available starting from 6,000 RPM onwards.
The gear ratios have been made taller leading to an increase in top speed by 5 km/hr. A new Power Mode logic provides 4 configurations – Full, High, Medium, Low. Full allows the engine to express its maximum potential without electronic filters.
An optional Akrapovic exhaust hikes the output to 228 HP and 131 Nm with a weight reduction of 5 kg. The V4 S is specifically equipped with 3-spoke forged Aluminum alloy wheels with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres – 120/70 ZR17 front and 200/60 ZR17 rear.

For 2022, the SP2 variant gets the Winter Test livery in which the Matte Black of the fairings is combined with the Matte Carbon finish of the wings contrasting with Bright Red accents and the exposed Brushed Aluminium tank.
The heart of the SP2 is the same 1103 cc Desmosedici Stradale engine with the same performance figures. The deducated equipment over the S include Billet Aluminium steering stem with bike name and number, and rider seat with dedicated material and V4 SP2 logo.
