Awesome pic Riki! I have some niggles with the styling on the v4, but they solved all of them on the v4r!

People complaining about the winglets make me laugh. The bike was designed to win races, not ensure you look good riding it and soothe your ego.

Exactly my point. The works V4 is designed to win races and if an AD package helps to do that then by all means get it on there. The bike they sell at the dealership isn't that bike, its a bike that has to be sold to satisfy the rules and the guys who are buying them (with a few exceptions) are not those riders. Post up all the class winners from WERA and CCS a year from now and lets see how many guys are on the podium with a 40K dealer bike. For a street bike, the AD bits are a gimmick. The R is a "race inspired bike" based on a mandate. Awesome bike right out of the gate for sure but lets keep it real. Unlike Aprilia where you can actually go and buy a race bike, Ducati sell's "race inspired" bikes. If you want a Corse spec v4 R, you going to need some tools, some skills and an Amex card

Now onto something less goofy. The V4 block in the photos I have and the parts manual do not show that they are using cylinder liners on this engine. Question, does anyone know weather they have cast steel liners into the block or are they using just using the bare block with a silicone matrix. Also are they using 2 ring pistons in the R motors?
