I remember all the rumors that the 899 was actually going to be a 749 WSS legal motor. Based on Ducati's groeth, they obviously know what they are doing. But the twenty guys who would have bought that bike would have loved it !

I did forget that.. Its been awhile lol

I would pee my pants if they announced a ~450cc class "real" sporbike!

my guess is that the 899 is high strung, like the 1199, the fix for that is add mid range, the new one will ride like a twin, rather than the weird zingy power curve it has
Thanks from mtb

Strick euro emissions, up the displacement and make it lower on emissions. That's a good enough reason to do it.

Doubt it. Easiest upgrade path would be resleeve (it's only 30 cc a cylinder) and making the bore larger without altering the stroke isn't going to do much for low/mid range.

I would sell my 1199 for a 450cc twin supersport. 350lb wet, and give me 70 horses.
