We all know Ducati is one of the most insane Motorcycle company which always think about more performance than every motorcycle they build, this time they introduce more powerful version than Panigale v4r The Superleggera V4 which manufactured in Borgo Panigale and Ducati produce only 500 unit of Superleggera V4 .
Superleggera V4 only motorcycle in the world approved for road use with a frame, swingarm and carbon fibre rims, is finally available. which “made in Italy” design, which sets a new benchmark in terms of performance, style and attention to detail this composite material, obtaining, for these components only, a weight saving of 6.7 kg compared to those of the Panigale V4 MY20.for highest quality and safety standards, these components are 100% controlled by the most sophisticated techniques borrowed from the aerospace industry so Many components are made of carbon fibre, modelled in advanced aerodynamic shapes. These include the fairing, which reaches efficiency levels higher than those of today’s MotoGP bikes, which are limited in this by the current technical regulations. Thanks to the aerodynamic biplane appendages inspired by Ducati’s 2016 MotoGP bike, the most highly-performing in this field, it is able to guarantee a vertical load of 50 kg of “downforce” at 270 km/h, 20 kg more than that produced by the wings of the Panigale V4 MY20 and V4R. This downforce improves acceleration by counteracting the tendency to wheelie and increases braking stability. This Superleggera V4 comes with specially design Brake caliper and disk by Brembo which is more light wait and more aggressive to stop 234 horse power .
The 998 cc 90° V4 unit of the Superleggera V4 weighs 2.8 kg less than the 1,103 cc V4 and, thanks to the Akrapovič approved exhaust, produces 224 hp of power in road configuration (EU homologation value), which becomes 234 hp by mounting the titanium Akrapovič exhaust for track use, which is included in the Racing Kit supplied with the bike.
so use of carbon fibre, components made of titanium, magnesium and others from aluminium billet, the Superleggera V4 shows a dry weight of 159 kg on the scale (16 kg less than the Panigale V4), for a power/weight ratio of 1.41 hp/kg. A record value for a homologated sports bike. In track configuration, by mounting the Racing kit supplied with the bike, the power rises to 234 hp and the weight drops to 152.2 kg, with a power/weight ratio of 1.54 hp/kg which make it most powerful road legal motorcycle The electronic controls have also been evolved in a purely racing perspective. By default, the operating parameters of these are associated with three reprogrammed Riding Modes with specific names (Race A, Race B and Sport). In addition, for the first time five Riding Modes can be added, customizable with your favourite settings. The rider can monitor lap times through the evolution of the Lap Timer, which now allows you to store the coordinates of the finish line and the split times of five favourite circuits, so as to recall them every time you go out on the track without having to repeat the data logging procedure.
Ducati soon launch this Superleggera V4 world wide as we said only 500 unit to be produce and few early customer will have a chance to take delivery of Motorcycle for direct plant and whole expense done by the Ducati . Superleggera V4 will not come with handy price tag its will be more than twice of Panigale V4R so might be close at 1 lakh Dollar which means it cost around 70 lakh in Indian rupees which make one of the most expensive Hyper Sport Motorcycle in the World well every one knows a good innovation comes at heavy royalty which means a hard work always judge at expensive price tag .
