Ducati tells us that the four camshafts feature dedicated profiles that operate the 34 mm titanium intake valves and the 27.5 mm steel exhaust valves with an increased lift. The valves themselves feature “titanium half-cones,” a feature typically only used by builders on racing machinery. The larger intake ducts in the cylinder heads have benefitted from fluid dynamic design.
Feeding those heads are oval throttle bodies that are the equivalent of 56 mm diameter units – an increase of 4 mm from the Stradale. Variable-height air intake horns further tune the airflow for engine conditions across a broader rpm range. Additionally, the atmosphere is cleaned by a free-flowing Sprintfilter.
