- Last unit of Ducati Superleggera V4 delivered
- Gets livery inspired by Lamborghini Aventador SVJ
- Created by Ducati dealership in Newport Beach, California
The top-spec, limited-edition Ducati Superleggera V4 went on sale last year and the first unit of the motorcycle was delivered in June 2020. Limited to just 500 units, the last Superleggera was delivered recently but not in the same red and black colour as the other 499 units. Instead, it was draped in the ultra-exotic and unique livery inspired by the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ supercar.
This one-off iteration of the Superleggera V4 has been produced by the Ducati dealership in Newport Beach, California and it was on display at both the Ducati and Lamborghini dealerships. Created for a special customer, it sports a dual-tone body work which is a combination of blue and black shades. The aerodynamic winglets are finished in black and so is the bottom part of the fairing and wheels.
Besides the new livery, the Superleggera V4J is similar to other 499 units in all other areas. The entire bodywork is carbon fibre that has made the bike as light as 159kg (dry). The specially-built winglets facilitate the bike with 50kg downforce at 270kmph; 20kg more than the Panigale V4 and V4R.
At the heart of the Superleggera is a 998cc Desmosedici Stradale R engine which is lighter and more powerful than the Panigale V4’s 1103cc mill. While the former belts out 224bhp and 115Nm in stock form, the integration of the Akrapovic exhaust increases the power output to 234bhp. Even the hardware package is super-premium with 43mm Ohlins NPX25/30 pressurised forks and Ohlins TTX36 monoshock while the braking setup comprises Brembo Monobloc Stylema calipers.
