I really like the air-cooled 2 valve per cylinder Ducati V-Twin. It has a lot of the qualities I like in a motor, accessible lazy torque, easy serviceability, reliability and a great sound. Not having too much power, also means you don't have to be going like a bat out of hell to enjoy it.
I've long harboured a wish that Ducati would ressurrect the Supersport for the noughties, (and the over 40's) But alas it seems that Ducati will soon abandon the air-cooled motor for good; a victim of every tightening emission and noise regulations. Booooooo!
Clearly I'm going to have to build my own.
The plan is:
Ducati 1098S chassis, Ducati Monster 1100 Motor, Radical Ducati Carbon tank & tail, A carbon Fairing (Type TBC). How hard can it be, right?
|Ducati 1098s Chassis|
|Ducati Monster 1100 Motor|
|Radical Ducati Tank and Tail|
|Will look something like this...|
