Ducati has traced the lines of the heir of the 848 , a motion of "half" displacement that followed partially as seen on the 1199 Panigale , with a few caveats that can make us reflect on the future of the House Bolognese road.
The rumors and reports gathered exclusively by IFG are substantial and structural make up the puzzle of what we can tell, it will not be a motorcycle designed for racing by virtue of the FIM regulations that restrict the airspace of a twin.
If they wanted to build a Ducati Supersport "Stock" should opt for an engine from 799 cubic centimeters and deal with the technical commissions, so it was not: the next motion will be calledDucati 899 and will have that capacity.
The engine , of course 90 ° L-Twin engine , it will be completely new but built according to what has been seen on 1199. Of about 155 horsepower maximum power limiter set at 11,500 rpm .
Similarly, for 50%, philosophy telaistica: the engine will be carrier-type. The biggest news concerns the swingarm : Ducati abandoned the single-sided in favor of a new dual-sided "banana" , structure already used by Aprilia.
All eyes at EICMA 2013 , the International Motorcycle Exhibition to be held in November at the Fiera Milano-Rho: Ducati 899 could be the real surprise this year, only to be marketed in 2014.
I know - terrible translation but this is the first solid leak about this highly anticipated new model. EICMA this year should be a good one!
