A new Ducati superbike is a rare thing. It’s the motorcycle equivalent of a flower that only blooms every five years or so. For our team here, living and breathing in two-wheel fandom every day, the prospect of a MotoGP-derived four-cylinder Ducati superbike was (and is) exciting. With each rumor, leaked photo, cell-phone video, and small announcement, we chatted and speculated over what the bike would be like to ride. What would it sound like? Would it be faster than a 1299 V-twin? You might say the obsession grew to a point that we couldn’t stand.

Half of an invitation to go to Italy and see the new Panigale in action was all we needed. We took a tour of the production line (which any guest can do, by the way), and soaked up an impossibly drool-worthy lineup of museum superbikes—851, 916, 999, 1098, 1299, and the new V4 all in one room. Nothing brings out the little kid in us quite like being at a motorcycle factory. Then the main event: swinging a leg over the very prototype that Casey Stoner rode to help the factory develop the new platform.
