Ducati’s Superleggera V4

Fast facts about the Italian manufacturer’s lightest and most powerful limited edition work of moto-art.

Ducati has announced the limited production run of the Superleggera V4, a motorcycle that marks several firsts for a production model. Limited to only 500 individually numbered units, worldwide, the Superleggera V4 is the only street-legal motorcycle whose chassis, swingarm, wheels, fairings, and biplane aerofoils… all composed of carbon fiber.

Dressed in a Desmosedici GP19 inspired livery, the Superleggera V4 is powered by the Desmosedici Stradale R 998cc engine that produces just over 220hp. In harmony with all of that carbon, the remaining components are a proper combination of titanium, aluminum, and magnesium, resulting in a dry weight of 350.5 pounds. The bike ships with a race kit that includes an Akrapovic titanium system that boosts performance and engine output to over 230hp.

For those individuals fortunate enough to purchase the Superleggera V4, Ducati has put together a handsome owner’s package that includes a track time on the factory Worldsbk Panigale V4 and an opportunity to ride the Desmosedici GP20.

Deliveries are expected to begin in June of 2020, at the rate of 5 bikes per day.
