Apart from the carbon fibre parts, I also got a dual-tone seat & rearset foot pegs for street riding.

BHPian no_fear recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

A long overdue update on my V4S.

Between juggling a career and a social life, I did not get time to actually sit and work on my V4S. My brother and I had planned a few updates on the bike, but things were pending for a while.

Well, finally the wheels got moving (pun indeed). I did the annual service on the bike and then I added some cosmetic upgrades.

They are:

Custom FullSix Carbon Fiber front fairing

My brother ordered a full carbon fiber front fairing for the V4S. We want the bike to lose some weight and I wanted to remove the stock fairing and install a CF one. The OEM fairing weighs less than 1 kg, while the CF fairing is 200 gm. Well, it’s not a lot of weight loss, but once you go down this path, it adds up. Plus, it looks really sexy.

Ducati OEM dual-tone seat

The new 2022-23 V4S has a dual-tone color seat. The seat is much comfier and it contrasts well with the bike. So we swapped the old seat with the newer one. This seat was featured on the V4S Foggy edition and I wanted the seat for a long time.

Ducati Performance Carbon Fiber tank cover

Out with the old and in with the new. The OEM tank cover had the 916 Corse decal but the sticker started peeling and I wanted the tank part to look more striking. And what is more striking than carbon fiber. So we added the new piece. That’s another 50 gm lesser.

Ducati Performance Carbon Fiber clutch cover

Yes, more carbon fiber! I was debating between putting on a clear case (CNC / Ducabike) but my brother overruled me. So ya, CF again

If you put CF protection on the right, gotta balance on the left too.

Last but not the least, I ordered Lightech rearset footpegs for street riding. I don’t like the OEM rearsets as they detract the look of the bike. I did not get time to install them but should be able to get it done in the next few weeks.

If you think installing these parts is a quick process – think again. We had to take off all the fairings, and internal plastic covers. I suspect the designer of the V4 gets his kicks from schadenfreude. There is nothing more miserable than working on a V4 and thanks to Delhi electricity, the power goes off and you work using a mobile phone’s flashlight.

Anyways, our upgrade work was done, and we took the bikes out for a ride through the back roads of Rajasthan. This time we chose Chirawa – Jhunjhunu – Churu. We enjoyed riding the bikes so much, we forgot to stop and take pictures.

The V4S was not alone this time. It was joined by our newest toy, (well my brother’s) V4R. Yep, we added a 2019 Ducati V4R to our stable. It is one of the four V4Rs that came to India. 2 of them were signed by Andrea Dovizioso. This is one of them.

The new 2023 V4R will be launched in Nov 22 and available in Mar 23. Having looked at some of the spy shots and the current discussion of the new V4R, as well as the pricing, I was initially thinking that the 23 V4R will be a great bike.

But my brother had different ideas. So after a quick bout of 19 vs 23 which bike is better conversation, we settled on 19. I will provide a write-up on the 19 V4R at a later date.

In the meantime enjoy the pics and the add-ons for the V4S and the V4R. We visited Alsisar Mahal and took a few pics in the brilliant sunlight.
