Lego Technic, the building block brand's advanced technical division, has launched a new model of Ducati's most powerful production motorcycle.

We're talking about the racy Panigale V4 R, which was the Italian marque's gutsiest road-going model ever before the limited-edition Ducati Superleggera V4 was announced earlier this year.

For the first time ever, Lego Technic paired the Panigale's 998cc Desmosedici Stradale R with a two-speed gearbox that's actually operable.

Other realistic features include an active steering head and suspension, exhaust pipe, windshield, dashboard and disc brakes. Naturally, the panels are finished in the bike brand's signature fiery red paint.

At 646 pieces, the Ducati is presumably easier to assemble than Lego's Harley Davidson Fat Boy build announced last year. Recent high-octane additions to the Lego Technic line also include the custom 1970 Dodge Charger R/T from the Fast and Furious franchise and a 2,573-piece 2020 Land Rover Defender
