Nice! The Duke has always been one of my favorite road bikes. Now it sounds even better.

Viva Italia!

And you can pre order for ~21,300 - ~40,000 depending on model...

"Now it sounds even better."

I beg to differ. You can close your eyes in the stands and tell when a Vtwin Duc comes by, as opposed to the other 'screamin meemies'. Heresy.....!

I never thought i would want to own a ducati after the 1098 because of some models losing the single swing arm and under tail exhaust. I would make an exception for this one. Will have to do the 5+ year wait for a used one.

The V-four is not a inline 4 sound. I think my dad had a ford powered Saab Sonett v4.

I haven't pre-ordered anything yet. But I have talked to my multi-line Euro bike Dealer owning buddy. The Speciale is a bargain compared to the track-only BMW HP4 Race.

Nice bike, I'm sure that 1 HP reduction in street mode makes a huge difference - LoL.

11. Three Riding Modes are now available:
Race: 214 horsepower; minimal intervention of electronics, for experienced rider
Sport: 214 horsepower; more intervention of electronics, for less experienced riders
Street: 213 horsepower; most intervention of electronics, best grip and stability

Well, we need to save people from themselves... laugh

From the info I've been able to gather, the difference between the 214 hp Base and S models, and the 226 hp Speciale, is the Akrapovic exhaust system that comes standard on the Speciale.

According to the specs listed on the website I linked in the first post, the standard model is 436 lbs wet. They claim 430 lbs wet for the S model and Speciale, but I think that's a mistake, as the Speciale with it's standard Akrapovic exhaust system, should be lighter than the S model with a factory exhaust system.

They're also claiming 226 hp for the Speciale.

Of course as is standard practice, all the manufacturer stated HP figures are at the crank.

My XSR900 is 425 lbs wet, but has 1\2 the HP and feels pretty quick. Could imagine it with 226 HP. shocked2
