HI Claudius....It doesn't sound anything like the Jap inline fours. The F4 sound also varies by model a bit with the 1078 being lower in tone and the CC being positively angry and low. The bike will absolutely wail at high rpm.
I have ridden Ducati, and I still own a couple of them, and my S4Rs has the 999 motor. The Duc pulls straight and strong from on low . The F4 starts docile enough, albeit a bit rough below 4000 rpm, and really starts to come on at 6000 rpm on up.
Keep your words soft and sweet, for someday you shall eat them....
