I was talking to the dealer the other day and he said the V4 will be out next year. He was a little light on details.

However, he did say the engine would possibly be a hybrid of trellis and stressed member configuration. A little like the supersport set up?

He also suggested that an R version probably won't be released initially but slightly later in the year
Thanks from youngR

Interesting. I was not expecting until early 2019 for purchase.

I know, but this is what he said. He pointed out that this is around the Euro 4 noise and emissions regulations and they won't get the current Panigale configuration to pass future restrictions?

He also said, for the R model at least, to expect a retail price of around the 35k. That actually ties in with what Domenicali said, quote “So, it will not be a kind of exotic bike like the Desmosedici, but a more regular high-end sport bike.”

MV already push 'regular' machines at around this price.

The price on the R makes sense. WSBK has a restriction on what the homologated bike that the race machine is based off of can cost now. I can't remember what it is, but it's either 35 or 40,000 Euro at the moment.

if you are talking about me (and i think you are cause i am taking up way to much real estate in your head) i am a fanboy of no brand. the only fanboy here is you. you cry about rossi and cry if someone says something bad about ducati.

and yes the s1000rr is Superior to the ducati in every single way. thats not fanboy stuff thats just facts.

if i were a fan boy i wouldnt have different brands of bikes. go on with your miserable life now or better yet cry to the mods like the loser you are

Not a fanboy as my previous bikes were kawasaki's, and never really liked ducati's til test riding and buying one, but how exactly is the bmw superior in EVERY way?
Torque? nope
Nimbleness/lightness? nope
Sound? nope
Looks? ROFL hell no!

And yes i test rode all of the then-new 2015 litre bikes (RSVRR, R1, S1KRR, 1299) and i settled on the 1299 as i preferred the way it rode, sounded and looked. While i always tell my mates the S1KRR to me felt like the best overall package for both street and track, saying its superior in every single way is just plain fanboyism!
Thanks from Trauma and Johnnyflies
