Even if Tito Rabat has not yet got a taste of the team Barni Panigale V4 R, we’ve noticed a few interesting technical solutions on the red bike that the Spaniard will ride during the 2021 season. In the cover image you can see an all-Italian carbon creation.

The company TK Dischi Freno has its base in Cislago, a small town in the province of Varese. The Mariani family is known for its talent and innovative spirit. Pietro describes the efficiency of the cover in question: "This is a solution adopted by many Moto2 teams - he explains - and it’s proved very effective. As well as guaranteeing better aerodynamic flow and less vibration, the cover allows the water radiator to “breathe” better. It also protects the flywheel and relative sensors, so there are benefits in terms of data acquisition too”.

The number 35 rider and his technical team have also worked on his riding position. The former Moto2 rider likes the seat, appreciates all the on-board instrumentation and has one specific request: “I want a red bike, totally red. None of the Desmosedicis I raced were red. A Ducati should be red and I want that".
