The 90-degree V-angle remains, but is back 6 degrees to make the shorter. That rotation, with the shorter …, the engine to move 32mm to the front tire for a more weight bias.

Big pistons big valves: 3.3mm larger and 3.7mm larger exhausts. Big means heavy—unless those are titanium, so titanium it is. Since big also put big stresses on the valve Ducati’s desmodromic actuation even more necessary to unwanted motion with cam timing and high revs.

We looked to see if the cylinder heads identical, but the requirements of the camchain dictate no—the front and heads are unique parts.

The 1199 Superquadro is indeed a line in the sand, demonstrating a long-term to production-based Superbike racing and traditions. Some have that the Desmosedici’s current in MotoGP should call question frameless construction. We actually seen the 1199’s yet, much less it, but if this engine provides an as to the ferocity of the rest of the package, we wait to see the rest!
