The 2022 Ducati Superleggera V4: Carbon Everywhere With More Tech Than Silicon Valley

The epitome of engineering excellence, cutting-edge technology, and aerodynamic design. The 2022 Superleggera V4 represents the only motorcycle in the world approved for road use with a carbon fiber frame, swinging arm, and rims with an unbeatable power/weight ratio of 1.54 hp/kg.

The 2022 Ducati Superleggera V4 remains unchanged for the 2022 Ducati lineup, but what is there to change? For starters, this is the world’s only homologated bike with a carbon chassis. Those biplane wings create more downforce than Ducati’s MotoGP bike, while its quoted power with the Racing Kit installed is 234 hp. It’s one of the most advanced Ducati Motorcycles ever made, featuring cutting-edge technology, a sleek design aesthetic, and a fearsome power-to-weight ratio.

The Italian Manufacturer also gave the Ducati Superleggera V4 more tech than Silicon Valley. From advanced cornering ABS to multi-level traction control. Listed below for your pleasure:

  • ABS Cornering EVO
  • Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO 2
  • Ducati Slide Control (DSC)
  • Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO
  • Ducati Power Launch (DPL)
  • Ducati Quick Shift up/down (DQS) EVO 2
  • Engine Brake Control (EBC) EVO

The TFT dashboard on the Ducati Superleggera V4 has an exclusive“Race GP” interface developed with the guidance of Andrea Dovizioso from MotoGP because when you’re fully focused on the race, you only have a few fractions of a second to get key information.

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.
