V4 at Toronto Motorcycle Show

Hey guys,

So over this past weekend I had a chance to hit up the Toronto Motorcycle Show and got to see the V4 in person. Have to say that it was even better than I anticipated, a true Moto GP street bike. It was extremely comfortable to sit on and I found the ergonomics to be quite good for my height (6ft). Didn't get a chance to hear it running, but I just wanted to share some of the pics I took.

Great pictures, I myself saw it in the beginning of February and the bike is way better looking real life. I'm looking forward to riding it off the lot in march.

Truth be told, I'm more jealous than Othello. I just can't justify it so soon following two purchases in 2016.

Is that the only V4 model they had at the show or did they also have the other two?
Seeing how they let anyone on 1299's i'm assuming there were more V4's.

There may have been more, but there were just so many bikes to look at, it was hard to stay focused on one or the other aha. Was really hoping to get a chance to hear it, but I suppose for now internet videos will have to do until we see it hit dealerships up here.

But I hear the show is small and given the fact this is an entirely new bike that will be hyped up a lot, i'd imagine that any other V4's at the show would be obvious. Was that the only display Ducati had that you saw?

The venue was fairly small but there were still hundreds of different bikes to check out. The Ducati section wasn't very large and this was the only V4 on the floor that I saw, that you could sit on/ walk around. Doesn't seem like they focused on the V4 too much over the rest of their lineup. There were plenty of other Supersports, Multistrada's and Monsters. There were some other Ducati's in the Moto GP section but unfortunately there weren't any V4's there.

The Akrapovic system looks so much better than the standard offering and I'm sure a lot of people were itching to sit on it. Looks like the V4 at the Toronto Motorcycle Show was fair game for anyone who wants to throw their leg over it.
