In this 20-minute video, you will see the Ducati production process in Bologna. Then Honda suddenly appears with its production of ATVs.
The YouTube channel FRAME took out its cameras to show a video tour of Ducati releasing its Superleggera V4.
The video starts with the Ducati V4 engine, where you see the installation of the desmodromic system, and the installation of gaskets, covers, and gearboxes. We don’t see pistons, but it is undoubtedly fascinating to see an engine of this caliber assembled by hand. After that, the motor is loaded onto a trolley, from where it is taken to the next station.
The next chapter of the video shows the work on the frame, and since this is a Superleggera V4, we will take a detailed look at Ducati’s carbon fiber workshop. Thermography, ultrasound, examinations, tomography, and 3D scanning are all used to ensure that the final product meets technical requirements. The parts are then painted and checked before being sent for assembly.
Then all the other small parts are assembled together on the frame, including the steering wheel and its controls, brake calipers and master cylinders, front fork, rear shock absorber, chain, and other components. This is also the stage at which the motorcycle gets its license plate.
After that, all the fairings are installed on the bare frame of the motorcycle, giving it the special look of the ultralight Panigale, note that it weighs only 158 kg.
The end result is a hand-assembled limited production Ducati Superleggera V4.
“Then, after about 11 minutes, Honda suddenly appears, but this is for the production of Japanese brand ATVs.”
