Picked her up yesterday

Cannot be more excited for this bike. I come as a die hard Yamaha dude. Currently have a 2012 50th Anniversary R1 Shown below) and now have added the V4S to the collection. This is my first Ducati so we'll see how she stacks up to the ole R1

I bought a few Ducati Accessories for it (black tank cap, carbon tank cover, clutch and brake fluid reservoirs). I will likely be having a fender eliminator designed and made as the only one currently available is located it too far back for my liking.

Congrats dude, it looks fantastic. Be sure to let us know what you think of it, once you've had the chance to get some riding sessions in. I'm curious what you will think of it in comparison to the R1.

Congrats! I think you may be the first one here to pick their V4 up.
How's it feel compared to your old R1?

Wow!! Congratulations and welcome to the Ducati family. I suspect you'll be selling that R1 soon enough. :-)

Please do let us all know how you like her. Expect it to keep you plenty warm. We're all going to be waiting on a detailed report!!

Thanks! The only thing i noticed on my 5 mile ride was that it feels a lot lighter. I looked up wet weight on both and found to be R1 at 454lbs and V4S at 430lbs. Ride position is about the same. We'll see about the seat though....might have to get a tour seat.

Thanks! We'll see about that...I love that R1. Don't have the heart to sell it! As soon as it stops snowing, then raining, then snowing, then cold...then I'll try to get some real miles on her!

I have yet to determine that as I have only put 5 miles on the bike in 50 degree temps. My R1 seat doesn't get hot when riding.
