The four-cylinder engine marked a new stage in the history of the brand. Ducati has introduced the new Desmocedici Stradale V4 engine. The "four" in configuration resembles the Grand Prix Desmocedici. It has a desmodromic valve train, 90-degree camber, 1,103cc (81 x 53.5 bore and stroke) and a compression ratio of 14:1. Power exceeds 210hp at 13,000 rpm, and the torque rolls over 120Nm at 8750-12,250 rpm. The gearbox is six-speed with a quickshifter. In the future, a higher-speed modification of this engine with a volume of up to a “liter” will appear for homologation according to WSBK requirements for the 2019 season.
