V4R looking good at Aragon

Todays test times look very promising with Chaz, the bike looks solid on track, his feedback was good. 3rd quick, just behind Lowes, 1 1/2 seconds off JR.
Thanks from Phl

PLUS you have to know they're going to be doing some serious sandbagging with the test results on this bike. I have visions of 2007 MotoGP where Stoner came out the first race weekend in Qatar and was basically putting on his indicators and pulling out into the passing lane every time they got to the front straight!

Doubt it Jarel. I think they are going to have chassis issues in the beginning until they get it sorted. Similar chassis to the bike it replaced with heaps more power. Plus Kawasaki upgraded their motor (new valve-train) for higher free-range, BMW has new bike, Aprillia new bike and Yamaha will probably up their game. Should be a great season. Definitely looking forward to it.

Aprilia is not new. It’s got winglets but same motor and chassis.

The V4R is a completely different chassis from the Panigale R, longer swingarm too.

So is the chassis similar or completely different ? (Noting Jarel's reply). Is the Aprillia a new bike or not.

One of the things I hate about the internet. How does anyone ever know who really knows about what they posting about.

Is it something they read in a magazine or they heard it from a friend who heard it from his neighbours wife.
Thanks from able duc

Well, similar in concept, but completely reworked chassis. Clear as mud?

It's on the Ducati website under chassis, quote:

The “Front Frame” of the Panigale V4 R stands out for the lightening on the machined side panels that allow to reach the stiffness target required by Ducati Corse and further reduce its weight.
