The Superleggera V4 was announced in February 2020 as the best road-legal model in Ducati history. Pursuit of weight reduction wasbased on the company's "super sport" motorbike, the Panigale V4. Starting with the cowl, the frame, swingarm and wheels are also made of carbon. The engine is a 998cc V-type four-cylinder that uses the "Desmodromic valve timing system." A maximum output of 234 horsepower is demonstrated by installing an Akrapovic exhaust for the circuit. In addition, the carbon aerodynamic parts "biplane wing" attached to the front cowl, which is also a style feature, generates 50kg of downforce at 270km/h. This premium bike is limited to 500 pieces worldwide, assembled by skilled craftsmen with the use of Ducati's technology.

This model kit from Tamiya faithfully reproduces the complex shape of the "biplane wings" with the motif of the Moto GP machine! The cowl and tank cover can be removed even after completion; the 998cc V-type four-cylinder engine and fuel tank are fixed to the frame with screws. The four wings attached to the front cowl, seat cowl with tunnel-shaped openings on the left and right, silencer integrated with the under-cowl shape, etc., are all realistically reproduced. The chain is divided into left and right parts, and even the rollers are sculpted for an increased precision around the rear. Inlet marks are used on the side mirrors, and slide markings are provided for the side cowl's red gradation pattern and carbon material. The rear shock mounted on the rear of the engine and the handling of the exhaust pipe are also highlights. Brake rotors with drill holes and brembo calipers are also precisely finished. The synthetic rubber tires feature engraved tread patterns and the Pirelli logo; a racing stand is included (it can also be displayed with the foldable side stand). A silencer is integrated with the under-cowl shape; the steering damper, air box at the top of the engine, and battery are also reproduced. You can choose street or race mode decals for the display screen, and clear parts are used for the front and rear lights and blinkers. Order this amazing bike for your own collection today!
