Any info out yet on how the new V4 stacks up against the 1299 V twin in World Superbike form, or is it too early for that?
Thanks,Ducati Panigale V4 R completes first WorldSBK Test | MCNews.com.au
This is the first I've seen of the R mentioned. Haven't seen anything since...but that time is good.
Typically they make bikes that are faster, lighter and just all around better with each gen.
And since it's basically a "lite" version of their Gp efforts, I would assume it's gonna run circles around anything else out right now.
Can't wait for my 1st test ride.
I don't care what the dealer says,,, I'm taking it for as long as I need.
Pro-Italia lays out a 3mile/10min loop, all city riding. That's cute. But the last time I bought a bike from them (rode the 1199 and RSV4) I took both for about 30min, up Angeles Crest, twisty bits of road etc...
When I returned, they knew,, b/c I got mud/dirt on the rear hugger. I smiled and said "you wanna sell a bike or not?"
I was underwhelmed b/c both bikes had under inflated tyres so it wasn't 100%, but I got a feel for their characters.
BMW does it right. They say "take the bike for a weekend". Same as Cadillac.
