Italian superbike manufacturer Ducati is all set to reveal the new V4 Desmosedici Stradale engine on September 7, 2017.
Ahead of that the Ducati V4 Superbike has been revealed in a leaked image on the internet. The source of the picture is unknown.
At first glance, the motorcycle looks like a Panigale. But when closely observed, the changes to the bodywork can be noted. The fairing extends all the way to the fuel tank and looks like a single unit.
The headlight recess of the V4 Superbike is larger and likely to incorporate air intake ducts. The engine casing is also visible in the picture which is different from the Panigale.
It is not known where the picture was taken, but it is reported to be captured during the testing session at the Misano circuit. The exhaust note of the new V4 motorcycle has already been leaked in a video.
The exhaust note of the V4 engine sounds like a MotoGP machine, but the street-legal variant of the motorcycle will be fitted with an exhaust which will be a bit quieter.
Ducati's new V4 Desmosedici Stradale engine will be unveiled on September 7, 2017. The V4 Superbike will make its debut at the 2017 EICMA motorcycle show. The replacement for Panigale looks promising with an all-new engine and new bodywork.
