That article is a year old. Frankly, the Ducati v4 is almost the same level unicorn as the Honda V4. I'll believe it when I see it.

It's gonna happen. I've been saying it since the 1098 was new. Lol and then every release I'm sad....

Jup, agree. My dealer (lagest Ducati dealer in Europe) also confirmed it. Will probably have tiptronic (Audi) as well. I said it before somewhere in this forum; the main reason the 90 Ani version is launched is because a new Pani is coming up.

Are there any limitations in the WSBK homologation rules from using a different configuration or is this a decision of the manufacturer?

Pretty sure the rules are as follows: 4 cylinders (I4 and V4's) are to have a maximum capacity of 1000cc, where as 2 cylinders are capped at 1200cc

Not sure why Ducati would backtrack on a proven, lightweight design... But I guess we'll have to wait and see! If it does happen, I'll be glad to own the last of the frameless, Superquadro engine!
