Ducati has a new flagship Superbike out soon, if you hadn’t heard the Powering the Ducati 1199 is a new 90° v-twin motor dubbed the (Ducati mini-site here ), the Italian company officially today. Confirming the specs we back in November of last the power plant boasts and 98 lbs•ft of torque, the Ducati Superquadro motor a new for Bologna, in more ways one.

For starters, the Superquadro is the production motor in the company’s that’s is fully-integrated into a chassis, thus putting confirmation that the 1199 will use the MotoGP inspired chassis design (not we were really doubting

Deriving its name from the over-sqaure cylinder design, the is the most powerful motor to in a production motorcycle from the brand. Other highlights the use of hybrid chain/gear-driven camshaft. valves, a wet slipper clutch, throttle actuation, 15,000 major service intervals, and a “riding mode” system. that the company built the motor with a clean of paper, the company has proven again that there are no cows in Bologna.

With the Superquadro motor a fully-stressed member of the chassis, has spent a significant amount of designing how the Superquadro motor fit in the company’s monocoque frame Tilting the motor back 6°, the cylinder sits 21° from the plane, which allows the to be moved 32mm farther when compared to previous Ducati says this for better front/rear weight and improved front-end feel.

An we’ve heard a great about from the Italian and with the woes seen Ducati Corse in MotoGP, pretty sure the entire world is eager to see if this concept will work for on its new street-going Superbike. In the meantime, have to suffice with the of technical specifications the Italian has provided us on the new Superquadro motor.

With a bore and … of x 60.8mm, the Superquadro makes an @ 10,750rpm 98.1 lbs•ft @ 9,000rpm. Aided by the increased size, larger valves been employed to help that monster amount of from the v-twin motor, and as the intake valves have increased from 43.5 to while the exhaust valves go 34.5 to 38.2mm. Built from the valves are unsurprisingly actuated Ducati’s signature Desmodromic system.

Helping the Superquadro motor is a larger oval throttle which gets bumped the Testastretta’s 63.9mm, to a 67.5mm equivalent Controlling the dual fuel is a ride-by-wire throttle system, the camshaft is driven by a hybrid system. Because of refinements to the cam system, the Ducati 1199 can be more easily started its predecessors, allowing for a smaller motor and battery, which in a 7.3 lbs weight reduction on the motor.

Perhaps the most contentious for the Ducati Superquadro motor is the of a wet slipper-style clutch, similar to is found on the Multistrada 1200 and Doing away with the Ducati dry-clutch rattle, sure this change of the quo will gain the ire of many motorcyclists, though we hear our sources in Bologna that the is taking a pragmatic approach to its admitting that the wet-clutch better in virtually every and use.
