The rumors about the latest Ducati superbike have been circling around the motorcycling web for quite some time. One thing is for certain – Superquadrata is nearing the final stages of the development and it will mark the changing times for high performance bikes coming from Bologna. Obviously – the big deal is the new engine. Rumors says that it’s massively over-square bore and stroke will allow this 1200cc v-twin to rev higher that you would expect from such an engine.
Second big deal: no more trellis frame. Superquadrata will have a monocoque chassis, most likely made using the expirience gathered from MotoGP bikes. Add a splash of latest electronics already present on the Diavel and Multistrada (traction control, electronic suspension, datalogging) and you can expect a proper beast – the one which will tackle most of the modern superbikes on the market with ease….or not.
