An extremely high power to weight ratio is achieved by the low dry weight of 166.5 kg.

Valve clearance inspection every 24,000 km

Compression ratio is 12.6: 1 increased / 60.8 mm stroke

Chassis

There are three driving modes. In the mode “wet” the power is capped at 120 Ps. The TFT display also has a few interesting features. If the track display mode is selected, the inclined position is displayed. A lap time function for the race track is also available. For this purpose the Ducati Data Analyser + GPS (DDA + GPS) is used.
