I Ride: V4 S Corse (ordered)
I saw some missed apex’s and a weird end through grass. But the bike is certainly magnificent

That was a serious lap for probably first time out on something that is for sure quite unique to ride. It certainly looks the business and the sound is sweet.

Yeah, it sounds good - better than inline 4 but I don't think so over the Duc V2. How many of you like it over the V2?
Thanks from able duc and jpanigale

I'm a V2 nut and am planning on keeping mine forever it's that good and the sound to me with the full exhaust, I just can't get enough. But this V4R is on another level of unique sounds, a lot of non DUC people will jump onboard the new range for sure, bloody shame there goes the exclusive Ducati ownership trip.

Alessandro Valia was within 4 seconds of Chaz Davies time on a bone stock V4R with road tyres. He felt he could go a second quicker on slicks, so 3 seconds separating a road bike from a WSBK spec machine is pretty impressive for a bike with a licence plate and lights.

Apparently Ducati are testing rear aerofoils on their MotoGP bikes, so perhaps the next incarnation of the R will sprout these as well
