You do understand that 99.99% on here don’t give a shit about who had the first boner in the dinosaur kingdom (except Prince Albert)?

It would be the case in Dubai, where you’d have your 3 kids being hauled to school in thei own Rolls Royces. And at night you’d wank off over having the first V4R delivered to your penthouse in a helicopter.

Here? Nah brah
Thanks from youngR and ahvengeance

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?
The V4R fork have NIX30 on the rebound side and FKR on the compression side. I have the spec cards.

The FKR tech is great for resistance to bottoming and no one ever complains about the rebound circuit on a NIX fork so this is the best of all worlds with respect to price and functionality! Yea!!

This is the same technology Yamaha just introduced on their R1M for 2020. The FKR insert available to install in lots of forks like Showa BPF (899, 959, GSX-R1000) or Showa BFF (ZX-10RR, GSX-R1000R) or Ohlins R&T forks like the 2015-2019 R1M, 1299, V4, etc...is the same valving spec and technology we are talking about here but they only put the compression side on the V4R. The fork insert before the FKR was not generally available unless you had a racing license mostly because they require more maintenance.

And all the suspension companies copy each other. If KYB, WP or Showa wanted to make something similar to Ohlins they would....

Yea, but let's be real here, we're all owners of Ducati bikes. These bikes are explained to the masses as, "The Ferrari of motorcycles." So, to that point, we're all technically showing off that we have a pricey motorcycle. You don't have to say it because you own one lol.

I had an asshole in a FaceBook Ducati group that was selling his V4S. All I said was "How can you sell that beauty." His responses right after were the pics of all his motorcycles. I get the douche-baggery, but I didn't read any arrogance from this OP. Lol...I take it more as excitement. Shit, I too would be excited if I got a v4R! Then again, I'm' a noob. I've only owned a Panigale 899, and that was since Feb 2019. I took it out to the ThunderHill track for the CA SuperBike course and that was fun/educational. I can only imagine what these big boys can do with an experienced rider.
