It's as safe as can get with modern technology, sans training wheels.

Lol mate, you can build the safest bike in the history of the universe and there'll be some bloke who figures out how to crash it inside 5 minutes.

We get you don't like the V4, but this is like hating on it for having 2 wheels. :P
Thanks from Lisjak

I'm not hating, I was taking the piss. Claudio himself said at the unveil (along the lines of) 214 bhp is now accessible in complete safety.

I just find it funny for the same reason you stated. Humans have an uncanny ability to raise the bar in engineering excellence, but even more so in how to be a f*ckwit.

all good jokes require a bit of truth and for sure irony -yours definitely qualifies .

I valeted my car this summer and only one of the people parking cars could drive a manual transmission. most of the gen Z population will not consider riding a motorcycle unless it can be operated with a touchscreen from the safety of the living room couch . I'm calling it now predicting that ducati will announce a 2019 panigale with xbox controls mounted on the handlebars . ARAI will announce a man-bunn hole in the new corsair X girl/manbun .
Thanks from Phl, cmh210, Twistedracer and 1 others

Fair enough. Got the impression you weren't too keen on the V4 based on other threads, so it kinda coloured my assessment of your post here.

Claudio, what can I say, he's a character. I respect his passion for these bikes and the brand, even though he tends to let loose with quotable stuff every now and then.

My bad, just moving into my grumpy old man phase in life. Not hating, just sceptical.

He does and that is admirable....... I can see a lawsuit in the distance if someone argued that they took his word for it though

The only qualification necessary to buy a bullet bike is the money/credit. This will always happen, no matter what.This makes for lots of late model low miles parts on eBay.
It is a shame though.

Money can't buy skill and we seen so many people with big bank check wanna buy the most expensive car or bike just to show they can, doesn't mean they could handle it or intend to improve himself to be better rider or driver at all. Ferrari, Lambor all with 4 wheels still write off let alone a 2 wheel mate!

Mostly credit as nobody has any money.
