All the NEWS proudly

All the NEWS proudly brought to you by HJC HELMETS has been chosen for its light weight, including a titanium spring on the shock, GP-derived valving and a pressurized fork. The dash and electronics are very track-focused, to the point where Ducati has called in MotoGP luminary Andrea Dovizioso to help design the raciest dash layout. Riding modes have gone nuts, with new Race A and Race B modes, as well as five custom modes you can set and save yourself. What’s more, you can save up to five favorite racetracks into the bike’s memory, so you can look back over your lap times and splits historically and record new ones. As one of the most outrageous and desirable machines currently in production, the Superleggera V4 will be extremely expensive, priced at R1.6m and limited to 500 units worldwide. Due to the complexity of the parts, Ducati’s only committing to making five a day, but it says all orders should be fulfilled within 2020. If you want, and why wouldn’t you, you can get it with a special carbon helmet and Superleggerabranded airbag-equipped leathers from Dainese. The price will include a chance to ride Ducati’s Panigale V4 R superbike at Mugello, and there’s also 30 spots available if you want to upgrade that to go and ride Dovizioso or Petrucci’s MotoGP bike. And folks, as much as riding this Superleggera V4 would be an unforgettable experience, slinging a leg over a Desmosedici GP20 is the kind of thing that only happens in the moistest of motorcycling dreams. What a wonderful world we live in, if you’ve got a ton of money. 8 RIDEFAST MAGAZINE MARCH 2020
