Look carefully… It’s the new Desmosedici V4 under that Panigale layer. Honest.
The fact that Ducati is working on a new V4 has been an open secret for what seems like forever. We know it’s being launched this week and we’ve even managed to snag some spy video of it in action. But what we haven’t seen – yet – is the actual bike that the new engine is going to be the heart of…
Well, this isn’t completely that either, but it’s interesting none-the-less. Because what we have here Ducati fans, is a spy pic – possibly taken during the same testing sessions that we have seen in the video – very clearly showing the new V4 Desmosedici Stradale engine block. And even in Panigale clothing its looking pretty stylish.
As for a final reveal of the new bike? We’re pretty certain that’ll come in November at the Milan motorcycle show / EICMA, so expect more tease from the marketing department in Bologna before then.
