Set the date in your diaries - Ducati is set to officially unveil its new V4 Superbike on November the 5th at 9pm.
In the meantime, they've teased us with these shots of the brand-new V4 motor, which they've named the 'Desmosedici Stradale'. Some media outlets failed to read the press release correctly, assuming the bike would be called the 'Desmosedici Stradale'. My guess is the Panigale name will remain.
The 1100cc engine will be pushing out 210bhp at 13,000rpm with a massive 120nm of torque. It'll also be a 'big-bang' configuration with a twin firing order, similar to Yamaha's R1. We can't wait to hear it in action.
A higher-revving 1000cc racing version will also be produced later this year, designed to be able to compete in the WSBK championship.
