Heat or vibrations are tolerable, i just hope if i pull the trigger on a first run new engine there aren't 500 recall notices that show up. Almost tempted to wait until year 2. Plus then the r is out :-)

That's actually the reason why i chose the 1299 over the then-new (2015) S1KRR, R1 and RSV4RR that I test rode before making a decision. IMO 4 cylinders are smooth track weapons, whereas the 1299 is more akin to an old school muscle car that shakes, farts and pulls... I'll still be test riding the V4 tho to make my own judgement . Congrats on the new ride too!
Thanks from Blade Runner

There is still a degree of vibration just like it's siblings but it's not as bad, I'm not saying you can make out what's in your mirrors but you know there is something there.

Saddle heat was one of my concerns as well, and honestly I have ridden it through some traffic and it's not bad at all, definitely a lot better than a 1299 or 959 that's for sure. I think because the fuel tank now runs under the seat that gives you quite a lot of insulation from the heat soak.
Thanks from Nitrouz, able duc, crossdx and 1 others

Being a V4 not a V2 it should have quite a lot less of vibrations. It’s twin pulse firing order should sound more like a V2 than the Priller V4 that’s a screamer.

Anyone else thinking this guy hasn't really got the bike? I'm not buying it. And $250 for oil/filter change is kind of the norm.

Yes, lack of credible information suggests that...

On the UK ducati forum a gentleman from Dubai has posted comments about first impressions with the V4 and a video clip from a mountain ride, guessing it might be the same person as here, so I believe he is genuine. The weather in dubai at the moment is perfect riding weather, so getting to a 1k on a new V4 should be quick work :-)
Thanks from Bradoshi
