Ducati 899 Panigale Superquadro Engine Technical Analysis
I don't know if this has been posted yet.
All about the engine and the differences between the 1199 and 899. Pretty interesting...

Interesting points for me:

- The cylinder barrels of the 899 are surrounded by a larger amount of cooling fluid, which translates to lower working temperatures.

- The steel connecting rods are the trump card for the 899 Panigale. Both engines have the same deck height, but the shorter stroke of the 899 (57.2mm vs. 60.8mm) means the rod length had to be increased, from the 1199’s 110.1mm to 114.25mm. This returns an almost exact 2:1 stroke-to-conrod ratio, of which Dr. Taglioni would most certainly approve. In fact, a ratio of at least 2:1 drastically reduces the second-order imbalances, the related vibrations, and side thrust on the pistons, which means higher efficiency and less mechanical stress on the engine.
