Hey guys,

Just wanted to share with you these main equipment differences between V4 and V4S models. From what we can see, V4S comes with 5 extras standard equipment options compare to the basic model. I'm a bit surprised that Ducati didn't equip every model with their DES suspension, it's really convenient and useful feature to have.
Do you think V4S' standard equipment is worth to pay more for it?

  • Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES) EVO with Ohlins suspension and steering damper,
  • Quick adjustment buttons,
  • Lithium-ion battery,
  • Auto-off indicators,
  • Marchesini aluminium forged wheels

Both the Ohlins suspension and steering damper can probably be installed after factory, but some may not need the system adjusting damping on its own. Honestly something I could do without.

I also don't care for the wheels as well, I bought a set of OZ GSS RS-As during black friday. I won't be that far off from an S.

I should've bought a set of wheels too... Did you get a good deal on those GASS RS-A? I like this style, but it's kinda expensive for me.

We are also debating if the v4s has hugger and front fender in carbonfiber or not. It's hard to see.
There is some extra carbonfiber parts you can buy to the v4 but there is no mentioning if some of them is fitted as standard on the S. I didn't dare to order unseen so the only thing that I added was alarm and a fender eliminator.

Ok so I have know seen a v4s live. There is no carbon fiber whatever.
Kind of cheep in my opinion on a so expensive bike.

One thing that really amazed me was the length of the swing. The mounting is up by gear pedal.

Yeah there's no farkle on the S, literally just get the 5 things the OP said in the beginning of the thread, of which the biggest selling point is the active suspension IMO.

I do not think the Active Suspension can be added after the fact. I do know they made an upgrade at one point for the 2010-2012 Multistrada that was Active, but I have yet to see them do it for anything else -- though I could be wrong, and would love to be proven wrong as it's the only real reason I've got an S on order rather than a base. I was sort of hoping to go that route -- base w/ BST and termi out the gate, rather than waiting a few months or a maybe even a riding season to do those on the S.

Auto-off Indicators come standard on the Base V4 as well.

I got an "S" as I could not justify the extra $25,000.oo on top of the esses price for the "Speciale" which got a few carbon bits, Akro exhaust & ECU which you run the risk of the coppers stickering you if they are savy to the excessive noise it would make it even says on the flyer "For Track Use Only."
A fancy paint job, different grips, different wheels at extra cost again, same power plant & torque as the other 2 models.:confused:
