Sorry, but you cannot put "NIX" and "gas pressure" in the same sentence. V4s and V4 Speciale are equipped with NIX30 forks--your v4r is equipped with NPX 25/30mm pressurized forks.

WSBK machines typically utilize Ohlins RVP forks and are based on Ohlins "FKR" spring pressure damping technology succeeding Ohlins gas-pressurized FGR forks.

Where are the pics?

Plus Ohlins does not let that kind of tech out to non-authorized riders or teams, so the technology can be copied....No way they would let their top tier racing stuff be put on a bike sold to the public.

Gas pressurized forks if you look on superbike unlimted store cost Round 35k without the tin treatment. Gas forks have never been offered on a street bike before. I do have pictures but new here looks like picture is to big for file to be uploaded need to see how to zip he file. As far as first in us the Ducati sales rep said I was the first to order bike as I ordered befoe bike was released in Italy and ordering is time stamped when u place money down.
Oh I thought gas pressurized shock was a slang term for a Johnson???

Thatís a gas pressurized shocker. Easy to confuse the two.

I Ride: V4 Panigale Speciale / S1000RR
congrats.. I was SOOO torn as to wether to wait for the R or get a Speciale... since I'm more a street rider, the decision was a logical one... Enjoy!

I'm heading up there tomorrow morning to see it in person, hopefully before you pick it up. My buddy just purchased an S model from there. Congrats!

I heard from my local Ducati rep that the first couple V4Rs will have the wheelie control map. You switch it to that mode and that allows you to hit the throttle as much as you want to make the bike come right up. The electronics sense when its 12 oclock and then the ECU limits the power delivery to keep the bike up in that angle. I hear its the same technology theyre implementing in the dirt bikes and quads that ride on i-95.

Since you got the first one you should definitely have it.
