Since there are a few on the road now I'm sure a scribe will get hold of one soon.

For a new, and I would assume, very important bike for Ducati, I'm surprised it's taking this long to get journo bums in v4 seats and get impressions out to the public.
I would have thought they would have had a dozen v4s at Sepang, or some other appropriately warm track, ready to ride right after the bike was introduced at EICMA, in order to stoke the publics interest and excitement.

Guess they figured it will sell like a hot cake regardless what people said or super confident with how good the V4 will be.

Both the original 1199 press launch at Yas Marina in 2012 and the 1299 one in Portimao were in February, so they're pretty much on their normal schedule. If anything's unusual with the V4, it's seeing customer bikes delivered before the press launch, meaning they are further along in their production cycle. I would imagine that is from wanting a significant amount of product to be available to take advantage of the media launch buzz like other industries (smartphones, for example). You'd have been hard-pressed to get an 1199 for quite a few months after the press launch; not ideal timing for maximizing your marketing effect.
