I bought bucket list bike ducati v4s

Hello all, after bad news from Doctors I don't know how long I will live to ride the bike but I jst said the hell with it , still leaving nephew enough money to retire so I will ride it as long as I can Gives me something to look forward to.

Was riding it yesterday and today. its11:30pm now and I am tired so I will give you a short review and comparison to my MV F4RR RC spec.
The Ducati V4S is a great bike. Very comfy for a Superbike. tty8tr

True, Rob. But very inspiring to read that Jake is making the most of his time rather than mope around watching Judge Judy and The Kardashians.

Thanks Nigel, IMO cryimg about the situation accomplished nothing .In fact it wastes time and even under normalday to day life time is the most precious commodity on earth . ou can make more money you vant make more time.Good thing that I retired last June.

Another MV fan I am haing fun owning the Ducati V4 so its a happy thread.LOL
The Ducati V4 is totally different than my beloved F4RR/ Where the F4RR is worked feeling like a race bike with lights ,a high strung engine that has been massaged for the past 20 years to create more HP than its japanese competitors (until the 2020 Honda CBR1000RR) The Ducati V4 engine on the other hand is smooth,refined and POWERFUL strait out of the box.
My skills are no way near good enough to judge the handling of either the V4S or the F4RR at the limit, but my friend is and he has ridden both models. He states the F4RR is a better handling unit across the board To a mortal such as myself the Ducati4 handles well but I can see the mid corner instability watching the V4R in WSBK. The ergonomics of the Ducati V4 isn't good... its VERY good. Even better than the H2, and Kawasaki made a Sport touring version of the H2 called the H2SX. I am now ordering small upgrades like Carbon fiber Tank protector which Ale found for me (ALEX=GP RACING GOES THE EXTRA MILE FOR OU I BUY ALL MY SIGNIFCANT ITEMS FROM HIM) Tail Tidy a must on the V4 as the rear turn signal/tail light/ licence plate set up is BUTT UGLY . Going with EVO tail tidy as its reasonably priced and plug and play. last carbon protection is R&G front tank protectors . about to order CNC frame plugs from ALEX, and waiting on SILVER/RED Tamborini quick release Fuel cap Non Locking I have had keys snap off before and its always when your out in the middle of nowhere LOL take care all , last MotoGP race in 2019 is today

Jake, I believe a life well lived is a culmination of how much happiness we derive from the things we personally experience, combined with how well we impact the lives of our family's next one or two generations, or impact people who matter to us, whether we know them or not. Not asking for agreement on this philosophy. Anyway, I hold great respect for you treasuring your nephew's future as well as wanting to experience life in full. May some miracle come your way. Life is better knowing you.

THE DUCATI V4 WILL NEVER SURPASS MY WORKED MV F4 RRR/RC SPEC. iT IS THE BEST HANDLING BIKE I HAVE EVER RIDEN OR OWNED. The dealership where I bought the Ducati V4 sells all major EURO and JAPANESE BRANDS.AND THE OWNERS PERSONAL BIKE IS A MV F3800RC THE WORKERS OWN F4/F3 AND BRUTALES SAYING THEY DO TRACKDAYS AND MV IS THE BEST HANDLING MANUFACTURER. YOU CANT GET A MORE UNBIASED STATEMENT THAN THAT BEING THEY CAN RIDE,TEST EVERY MAJOR BRAND ON THE MARKET.
