Video: Ducati Superquadro Motor [UPDATED]

UPDATE: Ducati has added English subtitles to the video. Huzzah!

We don’t know why Ducati only has this video out in Italian, but there’s some good bike porn of the Ducati Superquadro motor being developed and worked on, not to mention some shots of the Ducati 1199 Panigale. Hopefully Bologna posts up an English version of the video (we’ll add it if/when they do), so the rest of the motorcycling world can hear about the company’s new Superbike engine. Until then, our translation goes something like, “the bike, it goes a verrry fasst!”

  • My translation it’s “the motor is completely new, with a lot of great idea, and Ducati have now the best ratio between weight and power on the market”

    Sorry, i am not good in english for more explanation :-).

    Thank you Asphalt and Rubber – best moto news blog out!

  • Hey, you’re welcome.

  • After buying a Desmo D16RR and my Aprilia Rsv4 I swore I would never buy another V2 again… love the V4 character of plenty of torque and tons of top end, but seems Ducati really put a special motor together here!! No need for 100ft. lbs of torque at 3 k cause u can’t use it so the over stroke design still maintains good torque and gives us more top end!! Excellent job only wish for a little more over rev like a 12k redline … race pipe and new ecu should give us 500 more rpms !!!! :) EXCELLENT JOB DUCATI!!

  • I bought a Ducati recently and having owned an Aprilia before, I can honestly say I’m a convert! Thanks to Asphalt and Rubber for a great site.
