Video: Ducati 1199 Panigale CAD engine assembly

Published: 04 January 2012

The heart of any superbike is the engine - but with the Ducati 1199 Panigale's Superquadro engine this is more true then ever.

Ducati claim the 1200cc, super square V-twin engine makes 195bhp - 20bhp more than the outgoing 1198. The engine is bristling with advanced technoclogy, such as vacuum die-cast cylinders, chain-and-gear driven cams and race-derived pistons.

The video below shows a computerised model of the engine being assembled, and looks rather beautiful.
