The dream bike comes true, and it is a Ducati!
Again, Ducati have pushed the boundary of sports bikes: 152,2 Kg dry weight for 234 HP (in race configuration) for this incredible bike. Acheived thanks to the full carbon fiber frame and a vast use of titanium and magnesium components.
SOLD OUT. Limited to just 500 units worldwide!
We share our further step towards engineering excellence with you, Ducati enthusiasts around the world. Every product we craft is a declaration of our lust for perfection. But none is comparable to Superleggera.
In this project, we modeled the most advanced carbon fibre into futuristic aerodynamic-driven shapes. Here we realized our dreams as engineers, manufacturers and passionate riders.
The new Superleggera V4 is, first and foremost, a true statement. It is where we draw the line between trying and doing. It is our foremost pioneristic creature. And I am very proud to present to you our greatest masterpiece of engineering, technology and design by giving you the story of its deepest secrets and its most refined details. A story of style, sophistication, performance and trust. Dedicated to all dreamers."
- Claudio Domenicali. Ducati Motor Holding CEO.
The new Ducati Superleggera V4 is the best that contemporary motorcycle engineering can express.
It is the dream that comes true. The result of the most innovative research on materials dynamics and engineering. 234 HP on 152.2 kg with the racing kit. A stunning power to weight ratio, enhanced by the GP16 aerodynamic design, the most effective ever developed by Ducati Corse.
The exclusiveness of the materials and technical solutions is reflected in the limited number of bikes: just 500, all individually numbered and provided with a certificate of authenticity. The bike ID number (XXX/500), which matches the VIN, is displayed on the frame, fork yoke and ignition key. A truly unique project that also acts as a demonstrator of the highest Ducati technology level.
More than fifteen track sessions dedicated to the development of this bike have been organised. At each session different mappings were tested, to refine the calibration of dynamics and engine to the point that it was practically impossible to improve it.
Ducati design philosophy is built by subtraction, recognising the purest style in the in-depth research of essential shapes. Even the aesthetics of color is built with respect for the nature of the elements. And in Superleggera V4 it is possible to distinguish with the Ducati Red the original color of the precious materials that compose it: the different types of carbon, titanium, aluminum.
