EN­GINE

Performance Bikes (UK) - - First Ride -

Lat­est evo­lu­tion of the 1198cc, 11-de­gree Tes­tas­tretta en­gine gets new cylin­der heads, com­pres­sion in­creased from 12.5:1 to 13:1 and 56mm el­lip­ti­cal throt­tle bod­ies. The end re­sult is Euro 4 com­pli­ance, and an in­crease of 15bhp to 150bhp and torque up to a claimed 93.1lb.ft. The ex­haust is new and gains an ex­tra cat­alytic con­verter. It takes its style cue from the 1200R.
