To stand before a Ducati Superleggera V4 is to be in the presence of celebrity. A machine built to the nth degree of design, manufacturing, and sheer exhilaration standards. The Superleggera is the kind of bike you dream of riding as a kid. And, if you’ve been smart enough throughout your life and kept a few coins in the bank, perhaps even owning…
What makes the Superleggera special isn’t necessarily the 224 horsepower 998cc V4 that’s been swiped from the Panigale V4 R. Or the fact that said motor can be bumped up to a face-melting 234 horsepower once you fit the delectable Racing Kit Akrapovic titanium exhaust that comes with the bike at purchase. Or the fact it’s limited to just 500 units worldwide. It’s the liberal use of carbon-fibre in everything from the front frame, to the swingarm, wheels, bodywork, sub-frame, and, of course, the winglets. More on that in our full review coming up shortly… Pics: Ducati North America.
