The first limited edition Ducati Superleggera V4 has just rolled off the production line in Italy. And if you’ve got 90 grand burning a hole in your pocket, you can order yours NOW.
We’ve been talking about the carbon-framed 221bhp weapon for months – and now it’s finally here. Developed by renowned test rider Alessandro Valia, the limited run of 500 Superleggera V4s will be powered by a specially tuned version of the current V4 R motor – and will come dripping with carbon fibre, which helps it weigh a slight 159kg dry.
It’s a technical marvel – and as such, there’s a price to match. You’ll need 100,000 Euros (£90,000) to buy a new Superleggera V4 – but you’ll also get some seriously cool benefits for your cash.
If you’re the first on the list, you’ll be invited to Borgo Panigale for a special delivery ceremony – and get the chance to meet Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali.
That’s not all, Ducati and Ducati Corse have come up with a “Superbike Experience” for new owners, offering the chance for punters to try out the WSB Panigale V4 R on track at Mugello. That’s pretty cool. Oh, and if you buy and Superleggera V4, you’ll be offered the chance to purchase a “MotoGP Experience” and ride the Desmosedici GP machine on track.
Each of the 500 machines will also come equipped with a Racing Kit – in the form of a titanium Akrapovič designed for track use, a carbon fibre clutch cover, a carbon fibre swingarm cover, a headlamp and light replacement kit, a license plate holder removal kit, a side stand removal kit, mirror replacement caps, a Ducati Data Analyzer + GPS (DDA + GPS), a racing fuel cap, brake lever protectors, a motorcycle cover, a front and rear stand and a battery charger too.
