In a classic case of race technology moving to street motorcycles. Ducati unveiled his new V-Twin Engine dubbed the SuperQuadro (super square) claiming to have squeezed 195 bhp and 98 lbs of torque from the 1199 cc liquid-cooled v-twin engine.
The recipe? A bore of 112 mm and stroke of 60.8 mm with larger titanium valves and forged pistons letting the engine rev harder. Of course the engine uses the iconic Desmodromic valve system which uses a mechanical system to close the valves rather than rely on a spring. Ducati claims its new motor is the most powerful V-twin production engine. Any company to challenge this statement?
