    Agree. And a damn good raise.

      They had to do something.

      Couldn't get any more CC's out of the V-Twin.

      V4 was definitely the way to go.

      Hate the looks of the bike though.

      FUGLY!

      IMO.

        Ducati is not concerned about racing this bike in anything but WSBK I guess, as it is an 1100 cc machine. Easy to out-power your rivals when you add a 10% displacement advantage. Unless there is a "racer special" coming that is under 1000 cc's, I guess we won't be seeing them at the race track.

          From what i understand they will be racing WSBK in 2019.

          I am confused how they are going to do it though.

          WSBK rules state engine displacement for 4 cylinder engines are 750-1000 cc.

          2 Cylinder 850-1200 cc.

          Definitely confused.

          Maybe WSBK gave them some kind of exemption as they have done in the past???

            Answered my own question:

            The road-going version will have a displacement of 1100cc from the V4 producing 210bhp featuring a counter-rotating crank with a twin-pulse firing order, while the racing version will be made with 1000cc in order to meet World Superbike regulations. The rev target for the racing version is set to be 14,000rmp using the desmodromic system, with the engine expected to have a greater power output while being lighter than the previous V-twin.

              How do you think this bike compares to your RSV4?

                No idea.

                Haven't even got a chance to ride my Aprilia due to weather.

                  Will put one in my garage at some point. I had the hots for a 1299 but this one takes the cake.
