Ducati is replacing the Panigale V4 with its most advanced motorcycle the company has ever built, the Superleggera V4. It will be the only street-legal motorcycle on the market with a carbon fiber chassis, swingarm, and wheels. Compared to its predecessor, the Superleggera uses quite a bit of carbon fiber, titanium and magnesium to keep it trim and lands at a dry weight of 350 lbs, which is 35 lbs less than the Panigale.
The bike's Desmosedici Stradale R engine produces 220 hp in its standard configuration and jumps to 234 hp when the included Racing Kit is mounted and the bike is switched into its track mode. The bike also features a lighter Öhlines suspension system with a pressurized fork and lightweight machined aluminum fork bottoms, a titanium shock absorber spring, GP-derived valves, a top-of-the-line Brembo braking system with Stylema R calipers, and an two types of Akrapovič exhausts for the street and the track.
Deliveries of the Superleggera V4 are set for June and all 500 bikes are individually numbered and include a certificate of authenticity.
