Last year we came to know about the new Ducati V4 Panigale Superlegerra. We had two questions.
- Will it be the 998cc V4R engine, or will the 1103cc engine get the lightweight treatment and aim for a 245hp monster.
- Maybe a carbon fiber swingarm similar to the 1299 SL, €100k price tag.
Now we have the latest information from Ducati
Ducati V4R Owners just received today this special invitation from Ducati. An invitation to privately view with the design engineers the new 1708 Project .
(We are guessing a new V4R Superleggera) at the Ducati factory in Bologna and purchase.And to ride either a new Factory Corse SBK20 or GP20 race bike at Mugello Circuit.
Dedicated to all dreamers
This is a very special moment for Ducati, and for me personally. It is the moment in which we invite all our most passionate customers to share something truly unique.
Every product we craft is a declaration of our lust for perfection. But none is comparable to Project 1708.

Welcome to Project 1708.
Ducati Motor Holding Company
Production of the Ducati Panigale V4 Superleggera will be limited to 500 units. As was the case with the Panigale 1299 Superleggera. Of course, a motorcycle will be very expensive.
The Panigale 1299 Superleggera cost about $ 80,000. The price tag can stay the same or grow. Obviously, the Ducati Panigale V4 Superleggera will be more powerful and lighter than the base model.
