Ducati’s very first 2020 Superleggera V4 was personally received by its buyer at Borgo Panigale, Ducati’s headquarters. Belgian Ducatista, Filip Van Schil, who already owns nine Ducati motorcycles, was invited to the facility to pick up his Superleggera V4, number 001 out of 500.
Being the first buyer in the world, Van Schil, received a special tour, in which he was able to see up close the line where his motorbike was built and meet the specialized worker who made its engine. The day then continued with a visit to the company Museum, the Centro Stile Ducati and the Racing Department. In addition, as with all the other Superleggera V4 owners, Filip will have an incredible opportunity to test the Panigale V4 R, which competes in the SBK World Championship, on the track at Mugello as part of the "Superbike Experience".
The special treatment didn’t end there, Van Schil received a copy of the book, Stile Ducati, bearing the date of this unforgettable day and a special dedication from Ducati president, Claudio Domenicali. As with all those who have bought or will buy a Superleggera V4, Van Schil also received a sculptural reproduction of the Superleggera V4 personalized with the number of the bike it accompanies. The Superleggera V4 will be delivered to owners accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and inside a wooden crate with dedicated graphics, specially created for transport.
"Receiving the motorbike directly in the Company and touching the passion of the people who work in Borgo Panigale is an experience that I will always remember. Days like this are what make Ducati unique and different from all the other motorcycle manufacturers," said Filip Van Schil.
"Today is a special day… Being able to meet and see the passion of our customers in person is always very exciting, and even more so is making them proud and allowing their dreams to come true," said Claudio Domenicali.
The package that Ducati has provided for this unique project includes, in addition to what has already been mentioned, a racing kit, the possibility of customizing the Superleggera V4 leathers with air-bag and part of the "SuMisura Ducati" line and the opportunity to complete the look with a carbon helmet.
Even more incredible and exclusive is the opportunity — limited to only 30 owners of the Superleggera V4 — to purchase access to the "MotoGP Experience". For the first time, it will be possible to ride the Desmosedici GP on the circuit, followed directly by Ducati Corse technicians, making a dream come true for all fans of sports bikes and the red bikes of Borgo Panigale.
The Superleggera (which means Superlight) V4 lives up to its name by being 16 kg lighter than the standard 2020 Panigale V4. It’s the only street-legal bike with the entire chassis (frame, subframe, swingarm, and wheels) made up of carbon fiber and composite materials. It can produce up to 237 PS of power and can easily go beyond 300 km/h. The Superleggera V4 is limited to 500 units, and priced at PhP5.1M.
