Get ready for an adrenaline rush as Jason Statham showcases the sleek and powerful Ducati Superleggera V4 on his Instagram page. This mean machine is not just any ordinary Ducati, but in fact, one of the most exotic motorcycles in the world that boasts impressive speed and performance. And guess what? It’s going to make an appearance in the upcoming movie Expendables 4 with Statham taking the reins. So buckle up and get ready for an action-packed ride!
Jason Statham, the renowned Hollywood action star, is famous for his high-octane action scenes. In the “Expendables” movie series, he was seen riding a Ducati Desmosedici RR, which was not only one of the fastest bikes produced by Ducati but also one of the swiftest motorcycles worldwide at the time of the film’s release. As the production of “Expendables 4” is currently underway, we might see Statham once again riding the latest and fastest Ducati – the Ducati Superleggera V4. Statham gave us a sneak peek of himself and the bike by sharing a video of him riding the bike and some pictures with the motorcycle. The Ducati Superleggera V4 is currently the fastest Ducati in the world and one of the speediest motorcycles available today.
In June 2020, the very first Dυcati Sυperleggera V4 was produced and handed over to its lucky owner. This bike, with a limited edition of only 500, was given to Filip Vaп Schil, a Belgian Dυcati enthusiast who already owns five other models from the brand. It’s an exciting time for Dυcati fans, as this new addition promises to be a remarkable addition to their collection.
“When I received the official invitation to Borgo Panigale to collect my Superleggera V4, the number 001 of 500, my legs trembled with emotion even though I have always been a Ducatista,” shared Filip Van Schil. “To receive such a warm welcome, despite being the first to order the bike, is an unimaginable feeling. Being able to pick up the bike directly from the company and witnessing the passion of the people who work at Borgo Panigale is an experience that I will always cherish. These kinds of moments make Ducati stand out and sets them apart from other motorcycle manufacturers.”
The ceremony for the unveiling of the Superleggera V4 001 was done by the CEO of Ducati Motor Holding, Claudio Domenicali. The event took place at the Centro Stile Ducati, where he presented the bike to its first owner.
The Sυperleggera V4 is an exceptional motorcycle that stands out from the rest, being the only one on the road that has a load-bearing structure comprised entirely of composite material. This includes the frame, subframe, swingarm, and rims, resulting in a weight reduction of 6.7 kg as compared to the Paпigale V4 MY20. The use of these components ensures superior quality and safety standards, with a strict adherence to aerospace industry techniques like thermography, ultrasound checks, and tomography for 100% control.
