Ducati V4 Picture Requests?

I think I'll make it to Ducati today after work to see the bike again. If anyone wants to see anything specific let me know. They have an S and a Speciale on the floor.

I'd love to see the belly pan of both due to exhaust differences. Thanks!

As requested:











And some other things. That tail fairing just looks really big. Hard to explain. And the tank from the back is huge. Also the frankenstein fairings are unappealing.











Thanks from Phl, Rich1199, xpercad and 8 others

I thought the Speciale came with the DP rearsets, yes? At least, as I read it on the full spec sheet, they were "adjustable pegs"..

Those look like the same shit pegs they put on my '16 1299s. I really don't understand why we can't get a little higher quality rearsets etc. on a V4s that retails well north of 27k. Hell, the '14 HP4 came with plenty of carbon + akra + adjustable rearsets etc. etc..

This is where Ducati always seem to fall just a little short. I'm disappointed I'm going to have to rip the rearsets off my V4s right out of the gate.. This kind of stuff is why the HP4 Race is a far superior machine to the 1299SL. Brakes, forks, rearsets etc.. always a step ahead in the full package.
Thanks from MMC

One other note. If you think that finding the kickstand with your foot while you're on the bike is a bit tricky on the Panigale now, just wait until you try it with the V4. They managed to make it worse.

From what I was told that was a pre-production model and I don't think it has all the bits the final version will. They had only put the Termi exhaust on the day of the launch event. So it's very possible those are just the standard rearsets and the actual bike will have something better.

From what I recall it’s shipped with a Pelican case of “Racing Parts” that you have to install yourself if you wish.
