Ducati’s Superleggera V4 Set to Arrive in UAE in October 2020
Revolution Accessories LLC, the authorized distributor of Ducati motorcycles in the UAE, has announced that followers of the Ducati bike are set to get a glimpse of the Superleggera V4, the only bike in the world approved for road use with a carbon fibre frame, swingarm and rims, in the UAE by October 2020.
The initial Superleggera V4 has come off the Borgo Panigale production line, the # 001 of the 500 systems set up in a restricted and numbered collection.
It is a work of art of mechanical design, method and "made in Italy" design, which establishes a new benchmark in regards to efficiency, style, and also attention to detail.
The exclusivity of the products and also technological solutions adopted on the Superleggera V4 are additionally reflected in the optimum variety of bikes envisaged: 500 numbered systems accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
The modern numbering of the motorbikes (XXX/500), attending the framework number, is revealed on the steering head, as well as on the ignition key.
Each motorcycle is geared up with a Racing kit: complete exhaust for Akrapovič racing track use in titanium; open clutch cover in carbon fibre; swingarm cover in carbon fibre with titanium "slider"; headlamp and also light substitute kit; license plate holder elimination set; side stand elimination kit; mirror substitute aluminium caps from billet; Ducati Data Analyzer + GPS (DDA + GPS); racing fuel cap, brake lever security, motorbike cover; front and also rear stand and even battery charger.
The Superleggera V4 is the only motorbike in the world, accepted for roadway use, with the entire load-bearing framework of the chassis (structure, subframe, swingarm as well as rims), made from composite material, obtaining, for these parts only, a weight saving of 6.7 kg compared to those of the Panigale V4 MY20.
To make sure the finest and safety and security requirements, these components are 100% regulated by the most sophisticated methods obtained from the aerospace market, such as thermography, ultrasound checks, as well as tomography.
The specific setup of the framework provides an exceptional deceleration capability, a phenomenal rate of descent when cornering, and a significant tendency of the bike to shut the trajectories when exiting corners.
Several parts are made of carbon fibre, modelled in innovative aerodynamic shapes.
These consist of the fairing, which reaches effectiveness degrees higher than those of today's MotoGP bikes, which are restricted in this by the current technical regulations.
Thanks to the aerodynamic biplane appendages inspired by Ducati's 2016 MotoGP bike, the most highly-performing in this area, it can ensure a vertical lot of 50 kg of "downforce" at 270 km/h, 20 kg more than that produced by the wings of the Panigale V4 MY20 and V4R.
This downforce boosts acceleration by neutralizing the tendency to wheelie and increases stopping stability.
The carbon fairings are embellished with a livery influenced by the Desmosedici GP19, with an alternation of lines and also midsts in between the red colour of the GP19 and the visible carbon that highlight the shapes, the products as well as the technical details.
The red continues the coloured sides of the OEM Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires, specially developed in the construction for the Superleggera V4.
The most effective and lightest Desmosedici Stradale R engine is concealed under the carbon skin.
The 998 cc 90° V4 unit of the Superleggera V4 weighs 2.8 kg less than the 1,103 cc V4 and, thanks to the Akrapovič approved exhaust, produces 224 hp of power in road configuration (EU homologation value), which becomes 234 hp by mounting the titanium Akrapovič exhaust for track use, which is included in the Racing Kit supplied with the bike.
The Superleggera V4 shows a completely dry weight of 159 kg on the range (16 kg less than the Panigale V4), for a power/weight ratio of 1.41 hp/kg.
A record worth for a homologated sports bike. In track configuration, by placing the Competing kit provided with the bike, the power rises to 234 hp, and the weight goes down to 152.2 kg, with a power/weight ratio of 1.54 hp/kg.
The electronic controls have also been progressed in an only racing viewpoint. By default, the operating parameters of these are related to 3 reprogrammed Riding Modes with specific names (Race A, Race B as well as Sport).
Besides, for the first time, five Riding Modes can be included, personalized based on the rider's favourite settings.
The rider can check lap times through the advancement of the Lap Timer, which permits the keeping of coordinates of the goal and the split times of 5 much-loved circuits, to recall them every single time the cyclist heads out on the track without having to duplicate the information logging procedure.
By default, the system proposes the works with of the finish line and also intermediates of Laguna Seca, Mugello, Jerez, Sepang as well as Losail.
The stopping system is the most effective of Brembo production with an MCS radial-pump equipped with remote control for adjusting the distance of the lever and Stylema® R callipers, an exclusive of the Superleggera V4 that allows greater consistency of front brake travel in long runs on the track.
Valued at AED 390,000- the Superleggera V4 is an extreme maker, created and also developed to achieve optimal performance on the circuit, however at the same time guaranteeing the reliability and also convenience of use demands typical of a sporting activities motorcycle homologated for roadway usage.
With this motorcycle, Ducati pushes the limit even better. The technical capability and knowledge
