Dreams Matter

Superleggera V4

Produced in a limited edition of only 500 numbered units and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, the new Superleggera V4 is the most exclusive Ducati ever produced.
Dreams Matter

The epitome of engineering excellence, cutting-edge technology and aerodynamic design. The new Superleggera V4 represents the dream of designing the only motorcycle in the world approved for road use with carbon fibre frame, swinging arm and rims with an unbeatable power/weight ratio of 1.54 hp/kg.

Unprecedented technology and equipment

Fully loaded with technology, the Superleggera V4 incorporates the latest research on the finest materials and the most refined components, becoming the full embodiment of power, lightness and performance.

The dream comes true

Crafting the Dream

Superleggera V4 is crafted with all the passion, precision, and dedication to perfection Ducati has to offer. Shaping lightness into speed emotions with our most sophisticated engine ever, top of the line components and our most technologically advanced electronics.

Giving form to lightness

Superleggera V4 is a Ducati project through and through, where we tried to respond to the unknown with engineering, went beyond the limits of feasibility and transformed lightness into the total emotion of speed.

*Bike specification, equipment and availability may vary by country.

The stuff of dreams

234 hp in 152.2 kg with the racing kit. An extraordinary weight/power ratio, enhanced by the aerodynamic design of the GP16, the most effective ever developed by Ducati Corse. The new Ducati Superleggera V4 is the best that contemporary motorcycle engineering can express. 

Exclusive MotoGP look

The carbon fibre fairings are partially painted with an eye-catching Desmosedici GP19-inspired livery that juxtaposes the red of the GP19 with a naked carbon that emphasises shapes, materials and technical details.

  • SAFETY
    ABS Cornering
    An anti-lock braking system is a safety system that prevents a vehicle’s wheels from locking during heavy braking. Essentially, the ABS regulates the braking pressure on the wheel, allowing it to continuously have traction on the riding surface. There are different ABS intervention levels, depending on the selected Riding Mode.
