1199 Panigale motor makes 195hp

Ducati has released pictures and details of the new Superquadro engine that will power the upcoming 1199 Panigale superbike.

The big twin pumps out a claimed – and incredible – 195 horsepower at 10,750 rpm. Torque is a stout 98 ft/lb at 9,000 rpm..

Not content with making it the most powerful Ducati production engine ever, the engineers have manged to push out service intervals to 24,000kms, along with large weight savings in the motor.

Each piston in the 1199 is a massive 112 mm, with a 60.8mm stroke. The Desmodromic valve system has been retained, but is now chain/gear drive, rather than a belt. The clutch is now a wet oil bath type, featuring slipper functionality, and the gearbox has been resized. Up, as you’d imagine.
