The new displacement is due to a longer piston stroke from 67.9 to 71.5mm (the bore is unchanged at 106mm). There are also new piston rods, crankshaft, and cylinders. In addition, the DVT system is recalibrated to maximize torque delivery at low and mid revs. In fact, 85 percent of the torque is available below 3,500 rpm with a 17-percent increase at 5,500 rpm compared to its 1,200cc predecessor. The extra displacement also results in a claimed higher maximum power of 158 hp at 9,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 94 pound-feet at 7,500 rpm. Ducati claims this is the most torque available in the class at 4,000 rpm.
