2018 Ducati V-4 Superbike Spy Shots

Visible below the Ducati test rider’s knee is a rear cylinder, not terribly unlike Ducati’s traditional V-Twin but angled further rearward. The added distinction here is that there are a pair of rear cylinders to go along with a pair up front. We imagine there will be an aluminum steering head section that doubles as the airbox and engine mount for a monocoque layout similar to the Panigale’s. An Ohlins fork and Brembo M50 brakes are predictable.
