Default Re: Ducati 1200 cc V-Twin '916' for 07

If the WSB rules are changed to allow 1200cc twins, you won't see a V-4 road bike priced in the vicinity of the current 999, only the uber-pricey, low production Desmosedici road bike.



With an extra 200cc the Duc twin will be competitive for years to come. In fact, if you hadn't noticed (which doesn't surprise me), Bayliss is quite a bit more than competitive right now.



The problem is that it's in such a high state of tune, it's at its very edge of development. It won't be able to keep up in a year or two.

Default 1200 cc V-Twins

KTM's already making a 1150cc twin in their RC8.

I don't think we'll see it, at least not as MCN calls it.



It would make more sense for Ducati to go "big-bang" V4 to match with their GP efforts.



However, I would prefer to see the 1200cc v-twin, at least it moves the displacement in the right direction for a street bike.



Bigger displacement = more low end = more fun



Smaller displacement = more peaky = more work

Default More KPaul "facts and data"?

Interesting that Troy Bayliss doesn't show up in your point count.



Bayliss 75

Toseland 74

Corser 63



And since you're such a math wiz, you might want to do a statistical analysis considering that Ducati is the only V twin in the series while all the others are campaigning I4s.



Kind of makes it even more impressive doesn't it?

Maybe Ducati can bring back that big V4 POS they tried to sell to the NYPD back in the 70's.



What was it called? The Flagellator?
