Italian superbike manufacturer Ducati is working on a new V4 engine to be used in its future offerings. Moto.it reports that the new V4 Superbike will be revealed on September 7, 2017.
The report states that Ducati has sent an invitation to an event at the Misano World Circuit ahead of the MotoGP race. Ducati claims that the event will be a sound of the new era, which hints the debut of the new V4 engine.
The new V4 engine will replace the iconic V-Twin engine and also power the future large displacement motorcycles from Ducati. Ducati CEO, Claudio Domenicali revealed this information during the launch of the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition.
Ducati might only reveal the 90-degree V4 engine, teasing the technical bits of the new motorcycle. The new engine is said to have a unique firing order for a distinct power delivery and character.
There is also a possibility of Ducati teasing the new Superbike as it showed a glimpse of the new SuperSport at the World Ducati Week in 2016. The Italian superbike manufacturer is likely to tease the engine or the motorcycle itself.
Ducati is expected to showcase the new V4 Superbike at the 2017 EICMA show in Milan, Italy in November. The new V4 engine is a turning point in the Ducati's street bike history.
Ducati recently unveiled the final iteration of the Panigale series, the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition. The future offerings will be equipped with the new V4 motor, and it looks like Ducati is all set to reveal the new engine.
