Exclamation New V4 Ducati

Bullshitting spoofers using superlatives in journalism are ten-a-penny, so it’s refreshing when you see or hear someone’s opinion ( like Rutter in performance bikes magazine for instance ) who actually know a thing or two about what they’re talking about and are groundbreakingl,.. mindshatterli,.. blisteringl,.. just feican fast!

Same with these guys on 44teeth, no hanging around admiring the views from Fagan here ;

The Budget Bike Battle they're doing is brilliant. New machines are great but to be honest the new breed are pretty much unobtainable for the likes of me. Id love to see em do more BBB type things - much more interesting

many of those v4's will be wasted ornaments unfortunately.

i know of only a handful of current generation pani's here, that were ever ridden in vain or at least tried to ( myself included ). the rest are a garnish for self admiration.

But there members on here who will no doubt, ride this bike for the way it's intended, and fair play ( gis a go mister )

Rutter is fantastic reading in Performance Bikes Mag.
Whether talking about his racing or bike testing. Brilliant.
In fact Performance Bikes Mag in general has never been better. I used to buy it years and years ago in the 80's/90's, then dropped it as wasn't liking anymore, but in last few years, the mag is bloody awesome. Those profiles of the garages of either specialist builders or small home mechanics, great reading.

He’s some outfit, hauling some burd around the streets on a monoposto desmosedici with no pillion pegs or anything, hardcore Jay

I stopped reading most of those mags too until someone here (batman I think) said they’d an 08 blade with a few bits like ohlins and a light tune that was running rings around the current crop of 25,000euro super bikes.

McGuinness and Chris Walker have the odd (although not very technical or insightful or relevant to actual real world public road riding) column, with a good oul spiel from an Irish reviewer on there too

24k is steep.....as i said to someone last night, you need a big fuk off track to exploit it. That being said, yes its a fair few ponies for road use, but still im sure you'd get pleasure in riding the damn thing. The v4 looks im not gone on, 1199 fair better looking imo and is defo much more of a handful, without question, it bucks weaves and spits like a coked up hyena getting [email protected] !

Not much in it against a standard 2011 model fireblade (with no quickshifter) until about 150mph, then the Panigale romps it to around 190mph.



15,000mile service interval means they're fairly confident of that V4's reliability.

The ever-increasing engine service intervals (outside of oil and filter changes) across brands is impressive considering the work that goes into making an engine Euro 4 compliant while still making more power than previous incarnations.
