If this keeps up they'll have to switch to hippodromic valves.

Twins keep getting bigger (Ducati, Buell XBRR) and inline 4 keep getting smaller (motogp).

Power is the key. You don't see the SV650 winning races (unless its a specified class). We all know that v-twins don't translate power numbers until you break the litre mark. Anyway, who doesn't love a twin? You forgot BMW. Can't wait to find someone running boxer motors in FX

They can grind the cylinders down to the connecting rods!

Hey Buz you are missing the daily lunch time debate over on the BMW vs Harley police bike thread.

Default multistrada 620

Where does this leave the little bitty Multistrada 620? Are they going to put a Sportster 883 engine in it or something? Maybe the Monster 695 I hope? How about a green or yellow one? Something really obscene is needed to jazz it up, like a Desmosedici V4 Multistrada.

A "wet" clutch? Merda!



My 999 will scoff at it while modeling it's "bikini" clutch cover! A Ducati isn't a Ducati without that clutch ring dinging!



Actually, it looks like a nice update - good to see Ducati is willing to make realistic updates to improve the bike and maintenance. It's also a great idea to put a "sensible" wet clutch on their most sensible model first.



It may take the Ducatisti a while to get used to the idea!
