Ducati tells us that the four camshafts feature dedicated profiles that operate the 34 mm titanium intake valves and the 27.5 mm steel exhaust valves with an increased lift. The valves themselves feature “titanium half-cones,” a feature typically only used by builders on racing machinery. The larger intake ducts in the cylinder heads have benefitted from fluid dynamic design.

Feeding those heads are oval throttle bodies that are the equivalent of 56 mm diameter units – an increase of 4 mm from the Stradale. Variable-height air intake horns further tune the airflow for engine conditions across a broader rpm range. Additionally, the atmosphere is cleaned by a free-flowing Sprintfilter.

Drool worthy bike and looks to be a great base for a race bike, but for street I would rather have my V4s. Nice that the valve adjustment interval is still at 15k even for the R though.

You can be that as this V4 R makes its rounds to the many shows that happen across North America that it'll attract a crowd. Can't wait to see one in person.

Wow didn't think we see this level of ingenuity on the V4 so quickly. If rivals weren't considering swapping to a V4 configuration before, they certainly will now.
