I've always raved about how good the R's are, and they are. But I get the feeling this one will be so track focused I'll be more than happy with my V4S.

I Ride: V4S and Ninja 400. Dichotomy.
That's the teaser for the 2019 Model Lineup presentation, same as they did last year, probably be live from the stage at EICMA the day before the show. All of us dealers will be there at that time, so I assume they're just going to live stream the presentation on the internet again.

I have a feeling, especially now that it's official that the Panigale is the first Ducati superbike to fail to win a WSBK championship, that the V4R is going to be absolutely batshit insane. If I were Domenicali or Dall'Igna, I'd make damned sure the V4R had so much GP18 tech in it that it will be certain to raise the bar on Kawasaki (although to be fair, a lot of it is that Jonathan Rea is just in another league - he needs to be on a MotoGP ride and it's a damned shame nobody will give him one).

So I'd expect the V4R to ride a lot like the Desmosedici RR. And I remember Kaming Ko writing about owning both the D16RR and 1098R, and preferring the 1098R on the track because it doesn't require pro rider talent and effort to get it to perform. And Kaming isn't exactly a slow rider by any means.

That's my crystal ball prediction And as far as winglets, I'm surprised it has taken any manufacturer this long to put them on a street-legal bike; they first appeared eight years ago!

Well it depends on how much they want to lose on each R that is sold if they load it up with motogp tech. I think WSB rules require a minimum of 500 bikes for road use must be built with a cap cost. Then there is a warranty issue too. So no doubt they will sell all 500 of them. But the other issues loom. The Ducati board or VAG will have to decide.
