Confused? Well, please allow us to talk a bit about the past. Ducati began losing in the WSBK as its L-Twin engine was restricted by the regulations. In essence, its power advantage was negated by use of air restricting equipment by WSBK authorities. All this was done in the name of fair play. This left Ducati with no option but to start work on a new V-4 engine to replace the V-Twin. It will have to put the engine into production to meet homologation requirements. Hence, Ducati had to make the decision to junk this engine. However, the love affair between Ducati and the L-Twin engines is a storied one. So, befittingly, the Panigale range was sent off alongside the L-Twin engine with the 1299 Panigale R Final Edition. Here’s all about the Ducati 1299 Panigale R Final Edition price in USA, specifications and other details.
Update: Ducati’s V4 superbike will likely have a double-sided swingarm. This is because the road bikes are likely to make 205-210HP power while the race bikes will make 230HP or even more. A double-sided swingarm will, thus be needed to ensure the Ducati V4 superbike is able to put that power down. The recent test mules spotted also had different exhaust and shock positions, which further lends credence to this aspect.
Ducati is working on a new V4 engine to replace the L-Twin motors in its superbikes. The reason behind this is the World Superbike Championship regulations. These regulations warrant the use of air restricter on V-Twin engines making displacing 1200cc. Hence, any performance advantage a Ducati bike may have in the WSBK is nullified to a great extent, if not fully. Hence, Ducati has no option left but to develop a V4 engine for its superbikes. So, what will the new V4 superbike from Ducati be like? Here’s our take on the Ducati V4 superbike, based on all the available information.
