    Default MV Agusta Triple and Single

    Early next month at the Milan motorcycle show, MV Agusta is expected to show and/or tell about two upcoming models, including a 675cc supersport triple (ala Triumph) and a 500cc single-cylinder sport bike.

    The single should not only be beautiful (like every other MV Agusta), but extremely light and powerful. The triple may be one of three production 675cc triples racing in World supersport in the next couple of years. Stay tuned.

    Call me a fanatic for non-conformity, but I actually prefer a single or twin over a 4. As for MV's Single, It has to be under 140-130 kgs to even think of being successful. That, coupled with 60+ BHP should be good enough. I'd buy one if I could afford to.

    Ever heard of the '93 Ducati Supermono? 549 cc, 75BHP @ 10,000 RPM, and 110 kgs. Now that's a sportsbike!

    Correct, Foosa.
    The Supermono was primarily designed for racing and is one of the most exotic racing single's ever built.

    You hit the spot! Like Jehanzeb said, it was a very limited production single for racing. It was a also a technological showpiece.

    In fact, I was actually searching for a Monster-inspired "Mono mostro" concept that Ducati released in the early nineties. In fact, some students helped design it. I haven't found any link to it on the net It was one heck of a cool looking bike though. Next time I'm in Pakistan, I'll have to rummage through my old mags to find it. Then I'll tell you how it looks like.

    Sami,

    Desmodromic as in 300 SLR ?? I remember you mentioning Ducati's use of desmo valves, seems they are the only one's bright enough to capitailse on MB's pioneering work.
    The 300 SLR could rev its straight 8 to 8,000 RPM and still pull from 1000 RPM in 5th gear.

    Exactly! Ducati is the only motorcycle manufacturer to be using the Desmodromic valvetrain. It seems that only a year separated Ducati's and Mercedes' introduction of the Desmo valvetrain.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desmodromic

    Suffice to say, if I'm not wrong, Ducati is the only mass-manufacturer left that uses it on its engines. Desmo actuation has the added side benefit of not having heavy and unreliable valve springs. Thus eliminating valve float.

    On racing engines, you can have pneumatic valve springs, but I don't think it's feasible with a high-mileage road engine as durability of these systems has been untested as yet.

    The Ducati 916 is still a stunning bike. And it was also released around that time. Ducatis were drop dead gorgeous at the time.
