Following the news that Ducati’s dropping the Multistrada 1260 for this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, and would instead be running in the exhibition class with Carlin Dunne at the helm – we reported that Ducati was working on a new stripped down Panigale V4 R for the iconic race. And it looks like we were right, because Dunne has been caught track testing with a pair of naked Panigale V4 R superbikes at a track day in the States.

Caught on camera at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in California by a reader of American site Asphalt and Rubber, the snap all but confirms that a Dunne will be racing a stripped back Panigale V4.
