I was just going to post the 44t review... it's a must watch just for the Ohlins overview. That is the most intuitive way to set up an electronics suspension i've ever seen, incredible. Is that new new or are other mfgrs doing it already and I've just not noticed?

I WANT that... Ducati now absolute needs a new super naked with that motor and these toys.

Great idea Kamiar,

If they make a naked version of this bike, I'll be on that like a fat kid on a chocolate cake

The extra 200cc is what does it. Tragically the new bullshit WSBK rules have killed the big twin.
Can’t wait to see how feeble the 1000r will be at 6000 rpm.

It will suck that there won't be twins anymore in racing.

It won't suck to see the new Ducati start winning races and push the other manufacturers to up their game.

Regarding the sound though (and I'm just going by videos, obviously), it sounds a lot like a twin. I'm not sure it sounds better than the RSV4. In the spy video where it was lapping a track, it sounded good, but it just didn't come across in the on-board videos.

I might be excited if I were in the market for a new track weapon but I just dont need a race bike. But, one duc engineer did mention that they were "evaluating" the V4 for a "streetfighter". I'm not sure he was supposed to spill those beans but that would be pretty darn cool and it would be pretty darn expensive too. There hasnt been a Duc I've really longed for for years but that could be it, if they dont try to tame it too much. This time I'd really watch for things like rake angle and wheelbase. I think they blew it with the first SF trying to make it too stable.

I'm so spoiled with my Tuono that I just dont want to compromise for a new Ducati. It's gotta be a major hit or I'll stick with what I have.

And yeah it sounds like a regular Pani to me, you cant even tell that its a V4. And good thing that engine bay is covered cause that thing is a mess. Might as well look like this:

This bike sounds looks rides truly remarkable by these reports.

BUT, at what price? Eeeek!

$30,000 cdn for a new base model Pani V4. $36,000 for the middle of the road ďSĒ. Thatís stupid crazy and unfortunate. Only for the loaded itís becoming.

They throw the V4 in a Streetfighter set up itíll be $30,000+ for an ďSĒ easily. I might do that but Ducati is getting crazy pricey for the big displacement bikes.

Gotta take out a second mortgage to buy a freaking Ducati
