Panigale V4R Reveal at Ducati New York with Gotham Ducati

Ducati New York invited Gotham members and customers out last night to preview the 2019 Ducati Panigale V4R, a homologation superbike with 231hp and winglets capable of delivering 60lbs of downforce at 150mph, perfect for the West Side Highway of course.

 Jason Chinnock, the CEO of Ducati North America flew his team into town, and Steve and Marcos of Ducati New York unveiled the bike in anticipation of the International Motorcycle Show this weekend.

The bike is straight-up nasty, with a look that's even more aggressive than the Panigale twins.
But at the same time, the bike already seems more refined, and is clearly much wider and comfortable than the original homologated racebike.
We had an awesome time hanging out withe the Ducati New York crew,
and checking out some of their custom builds, like this Copper Scrambler, which Marcos attributes at least $7,000.00 worth of copper was used to build the bike.
Can't wait to check out this bike, and the rest of the 2019 lineup at the show this weekend
which starts tonight at the Javits center in Midtown.
