If you have checked out the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb entry list of 2019 you will notice a mysterious Ducati streetfighter. Carlin Dunne, the record setter has entered the exhibition with a mysteriously unnamed Ducati Motorcycle. Experts have speculated and assumed it to be a Ducati Panigale V4 R stripdown or a Ducati Streetfighter V4 prototype. It can be well assumed that this is going to make a most awaited debut in the “Race to the Clouds”. Later this year in November, this new beast Streetfighter V4 is likely to make an entry at the EICMA show.
However, the V4 Penta by Officine GP Design gives us an early hint as to how the real beast could look like, as it is based on the V4. The aluminium front frame and headlight from Ducati XDiavel makes the superbike look a class apart. The burly wire spoke wheels and girder front end is a intriguing choice by the Officine GP Design. The motor might be the same as Panigale V4 with 200 HP, of-course the official version will be a de-tuned version to keep the front wheel down every once in a while and come with loaded with a space age electronics. What is curious is that will it take on the Monster lineage or start a new one?
