Ducati lately said that it will be launching a brand new motorbike on 7 September, 2017 at the hallowed Misano Racetrack in Italy. The ‘Save-your-date’ notice said ‘The Sound of A New Era Is Coming’. Reports suggest and we too believe so that this is going to be world unveil of the much anticipated and expected Ducati V4 Super-bike, which took it inspiration from the Ducati V4 bikes that race in the MotoGP. All Ducati street bikes have traditionally used an L-Twin engine configuration till date. Before in the year, Ducati CEO, Claudio Domenicali had also confirmed that the company is working on a new V4 superbike (four cylinders in V configuration) and it will be announced to the world soon. In fact, there have been numerous spy shots of the new V4 superbike being tested in various locations around Europe.
The new V4 superbike is said to make around 210 bhp on the road-going version and over 230 bhp in the race-spec version. Some reports on the internet also suggest that the bike might have two engine variants, one displacing 1,198 cc and the other 1,285 cc. Ducati is also said to offer 3 variants in total which are the base, R and the S models. There isn’t any confirmation on the same as yet. As of now, the test mules spotted were seen with a single-sided swing arm, but there are other reports which suggest otherwise. Well, it is just a matter of a month and all our doubts will be cleared. Either ways, we will always be waiting with bated breath for a new Ducati motorcycle.
