I saw the Speciale and V4S and thought they looked great especially the Speciale with the Akra installed. the rear tail lights are awesome.

I Ride: 1199 Base
Hmmm I guess my 1199 is still staying for a few years.. the v4 looks ugly next to the twin.

It's a ducati... aesthetics are the most important to me not the performance.

I think Duc being known for this is part of why they are building a V4.

Trading esthetics for performance is not the solution. It's a Ducati, it needs to be gorgeous and light with quick lap times.

Fwiw, the 1199/1299 are not easy bikes to do quick lap times with. Most guys I know who tried to race them had a difficult time getting up to pace. If they ever did.
Looks are important, but if the v4 performs as it should, it will somewhat be forgiven for some awkward esthetics.
Thanks from Nitrouz, Briese and crossdx

Don't judge us by one person's comments.
