The most notable changes for 2020? Those wings. They're borrowed from the outgoing V4 R.

Power comes from an 1,103-cc V4, delivering 214 hp at 13,000 rpm and 91 pound-feet of torque at 10,000 rpm.

The V4 S gets Ohlins suspension and a number of tweaks over the base V4.

The hardware is impressive, but it's the software that's the real step forward. Ducati includes massively comprehensive rider aids to make this thing manageable.

How manageable? Let's just say these aren't ideal riding conditions, yet I was still having a blast.

There's only room for one, so you'll need another bike should you be into pillion riding.
