Two years after the debut of the Panigale V4, Ducati has once again reached greater heights, unveiling the new Superleggera V4 that will take over the mantle of the Italian automaker’s most powerful bike yet.

Pushing out over 20 horsepower more than its predecessor, the Superleggera’s Desmosedici Stradale R engine is capable of pushing out 220 horsepower in its standard configuration and a whopping 234 horsepower when it’s kitted out and tuned for the track. It’s also 35 pounds lighter than the Panigale, coming in at 350 pounds thanks to its extensive use of carbon fiber, titanium, and magnesium. Most significantly, it will be the only street-legal motorcycle available with a carbon fiber chassis, wheels, and swingarm. As to its suspension, the Italian brand has teamed up once again with Swedish experts Öhlines for a pressurized fork, lightweight aluminium fork bottoms, and a titanium shock-absorber spring. Brembo brakes with Stylema R calipers round the two-wheel racer off along with Akrapovič exhausts, which vary between the street and the track versions.

Limited to just 500 units — all numbered individually — Ducati’s new Superleggera V4 will be available some time in June. To learn more, head over to the brand’s website now.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, Ford has unveiled its $750,000 USD liquid carbon fiber GT.
