Well you know there’s an official naked Ducati Panigale V4 on the way at some point, but if you can’t wait to see what one might look like, sort of, there’s this V4 Penta put together by Officine GP Design, Turin, Italy.
Okay, maybe the actual Ducati naked won’t get a Hassock-type front end or wire-spoke wheels when it arrives, or any of the other custom details on this one, but you get the general form it might take: Born from the Ducati Panigale V4, V4 Penta has been created by the brilliant mind of Luca Pozzato, Motul ambassador, and is enriched with a brand-new components specifically created, for a breathless result. The new Officine GP Design creature promotes a new arrogant design, throughout lines which instill strength and show all the ambition of this Turin atelier new project.
If nothing else, this thing really does make you appreciate how much work was involved in squeezing that V-Four engine into such a tight space. More information, and a terribly Italian video starrring the bike, are here.
