I've never once thought the 899 needed more power when riding my dads.

It just needs the exhaust improvements the 1299 has and then needs a SERIOUS diet because it should be lighter and more nimble than the bigger bikes, not heavier, with less power. But what would I know Ducati.

HaHa. I was a ripe 13 and in love with sports cars. I didn't get into motorcycling until the late 90's.

So is this legit or still speculation? It's only been out 2 years..... The 848 made it 5 I think.

Odd, this is exactly what they did for the 1299. The effect was more torque across the rev range. It would make sense since peoples' only real complaint about it in reviews was the narrow powerband.

By my math, 899 bore + 1199 crank = 955cc
