2018 Ducati V4 Its real, well at least the motor

A friend was nice enough to share some photos from the factory of the new motor so I can confirm that it is indeed a reality that is far past the conceptual phase. Unfortunately, nothing concrete on what the bike will look like. I'd be happy to get a few motors. There was a nasty rumor that it may not be for a Panigale replacement but an alternative in the sport bike category.
Thanks from Rich1199, flobrandx, MMC and 11 others

Interesting...I wonder what the alternative may be? Something all new and an evoloution beyond the Panigale? I hope so...

it's been 10 years since Ducati launched the desmo, maybe another GP replica for the rich folks.

Hey Guys. I apologize that I cannot post the photos. I was specifically asked not to however Urs has seen them and can vouch for their authenticity.

Thanks for sharing. It's really exciting.

What looked special about the motors?

Nope, Domenicali already stated the next superbike will be a V4. As such, it'll have to meet the required homologation numbers and price point. Which precludes a limited run ultra expensive GP replica.

Cool news. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the thing will be a beast, but there's also the purist part of me that's glad to have what might be their last big twin superbike...
