Ducati Panigale V4 goes solar, Ducati steps up.

Ducati North America take action after P... | Visordown

Based on the color and quality of the flames (black smoke, orange fire = low temp), I'd say some plastic got hot from the exhaust. That isn't fuel burning, IMO. At least, not yet.

Ducati is a bit cavalier with quality control, but at least they are smart about it.

They got Dude a new ride "within hours".

Take note, KTM et al.

does CF burn?

maybe the resins and binding materials burn, but I gota think CF doesn't burn very well.

what makes you think there's a gas cap aspect here?

Carbon fiber is no more flammable than fiberglass. Same resins, also.

Looks like a gasoline fire to me.
