Designed for racers built for riders
Evolution of a unique and victorious project
More than 200 hp, greater performance, lighter weight, more effective on the track and new riding pleasure on the road, with the best possible technology provided by the advanced aprc and race abs electronic controls.
As in previous models, the monobloc crankcase with integrated aluminium cylinder liners ensures maximum rigidity and consistent performance. The upper half of the engine case is now made with a new shell fusion and has been lightened (-1.3 Kg) and reinforced; it also now has an optimised ventilation system in order to reduce power loss due to air pressure inside the engine crankcase. The lubrication system has also been redesigned and optimised. A brand new oil sump ensures increased draught no matter what position the engine is in (for example in the most extreme leans or in maximum acceleration/deceleration conditions) despite the oil level being decreased in order to decrease friction. The “rose pipe” is also new (oil pump intake duct), now equipped with a new overpressure valve and a filter in an optimised position. The piston cooling oil nozzles were also replaced and the gearbox now has a valve regulated direct hydraulic lubrication circuit. The latter uses lightened drive shafts and gears (-0.35 Kg), a lightened primary drive (-0.1 Kg) and takes advantage of ratios which have been optimised to fully exploit the increased engine power. The entire exhaust system has also been completely redesigned with revamped electronic valve management, now equipped with two oxygen sensors (one per bank), while a more powerful ECU contributes to more precise management of the engine in the area of maximum rotation achievable.
