THE GENESIS OF THE DESMOSEDICI PROJECT:

Desmosedici project. This venture has simultaneously marked the of Ducati to the MotoGP

“The philosophy of the Ducati project,” declared Filippo Ducati Corse Director

“is best expressed as total between engine, chassis and This basic concept has our

philosophy from the very that we decided to tackle new challenge. The bike represents an

evolution over the Ducati and is the result of new design techniques have allowed

us to integrate modelling and analysis with our racing experience. This has up

design and development time and us to immediately obtain surprising Ducati is fully

committed to project, which has allowed us to quickly and transfer new technology to our

product range, which as a has become increasingly reliable, and high-performance.”

At first, Ducati’s technicians (a group of passionate with an average age of 28) had

considered the of creating a MotoGP ‘super-twin’, a V-Twin prototype, taking

of the regulations that give machines a considerable weight over four, five

or bikes. However, detailed including numerous computer indicated that a

would require a very … and a very large as a result producing possible

The desmodromic system, designed for by the legendary engineer Fabio uses rockers both

For the first tests, Ducati Corse two versions of the Desmosedici engine, one a regular

firing order, and the with paired cylinders simultaneously (Twin pulse). It became clear that

the version put the engine components excessive strain, so it was decided to use the

configuration. Subsequently, starting the 2004 Dutch TT at Assen, to the evolution of the engine,
