The company recently released a new Ducati 2017 cc engine for the model 2017 Panigale 2017 released details with regards to the technical features of the latter. Virtually the entire engine has been completely redesigned from the more than five hundred Panigale engine components, previously used only for fifteen (!). The main feature is the ratio of the diameter of the cylinder to move the piston which is 1.84: 1, so the cylinder diameter has been increased to 112 mm and now exceeds the stroke, which is 60,8mm. this ratio has increased the power and torque of the engine. Cylinders were deployed at 6 ° and 21 ° with respect to the crankcase, which gave engineers to displace the engine to the front wheel by 32 mm. for better razvisovki motorcycle.
Crankcase was manufactured by innovative technologies Vacural (vacuum molding) to provide an optimal weight saving, in accordance with the wall thickness and increased strength of the latter. This technology has improved sealing and heat. Carter and engine covers are made of magnesium alloy, which reduced the weight of the engine, increasing its strength but an integral part of the frame.
The number of valves per cylinder is not changed and remains at four valves, but their sizes were uvelichiny inlet valve from 43.5 to 46.8mm, and the exhaust from 34.5 to 38.2mm, it is also known that because of the large revolutions outlet valve titanium will be installed. New valves are actuated by rocker arms made of polymer-carbon materials in order to increase wear resistance, the technique has previously been applied only in the aerospace industry. desmodromnogo mechanism belts have been replaced by a chain for greater reliability.
To achieve high strength and reduced friction by Ducati Corse new pistons with short skirts have been designed, this design enables reliable operation Piston diameter 112 mm at high speed.
The power supply system has been changed as well. Oval throttle valve has been increased from 63.9 to 67.5mm for massive air supply further, while the fuel supply is now carried out by two injectors per cylinder, one of which is located under the flap and to enhance the flexibility of the second valve to directly supply.
The distance between the rollers in the gear box has been increased, thereby having improved gearshift gears due to their increase in diameter. Clutch Panigale will be used to slip into an oil bath. The oil pump is equipped with a Gerotor (gear pump) to increase the vacuum effect inside the engine. To enhance the rigidity of the crankshaft bearings were placed in a secure enclosure.
The Ducati say that the new engine produces 195 horsepower at 10,750 rpm and torque of 133Nm. As for the electronics, then immediately the engine is under the constant control of a plurality of pre-programmed modes.
Of course this is not the entire list of updates, but only a brief overview and apparently the new 2017 Panigale will claim the title of the best motorcycle in the ratio of power to weight.
