Ducati Panigale V4

One of the prettiest, sportiest motorcycles on the planet, the Ducati Panigale V4 is not only a beautiful-looking machine but it is also one of the most powerful motorcycles in the world. It is a track scorcher and is supremely expensive too. But since this is a dream garage, we are keeping money out of it. The MotoGP-derived Desmosedici Stradale V4 engine makes 215 bhp at 13,000 rpm along with 123.6 Nm of peak torque at 9,500 rpm. The motorcycle is loaded with features and electronics and needless to say, it is scarily fast with the 0-100 kmph sprint done in a shade over 3 seconds and a claimed top speed of 299 kmph, but it goes well above that. If you want a sportbike in your garage, then the Panigale V4 is something you should look at.
