Super Square

June 23, 2011 by

Spy photos and info of the new Ducati 1199 superbike are surfacing around the web, the 1199 was co-developed by Troy Bayliss who has been lapping it at Mugello circuit and according to him it’s a BEAS !! -he managed to match Stoner’s lap time on the GP10-

The bike is called Superquadrata -Super Square- reference to the ultra short stroke of the all new V-twin engine, and as we can see from the spy shots the new bike is a shorter, lighter and much more compact, the new engine will have gear driven cams to maintain the valve timing at high revs.

It’s also rumored that the bike will be frameless -an innovation Ducati patent last year – anyway ECMA is only a couple of month away and thats where we except the new beast will be launched.
