The motorcycle world is getting crazier and crazier each year. Always bigger, always faster. Engines have gone from simple 125cc to 2300cc. Thumper engines have gone to V-4 or in-line. Bigger is better.

Well, if you're one that wants to see bigger engines, you're going to enjoy next week's Intermot Open link in a new window. You'll get the chance to see a Ducati Open link in a new window V-8 engine. That's right, gasp, a V-8. Not in an American muscle car, but on a Ducati motorcycle.

Ducati V8 Engine

The bad news is that it's not from Ducati. It's from a Gerrman engineer, Dieter Hartmann-Wirthwein, who developed this 868 cc V-8 engine. The engine is bolted to a Ducati 900 SS chassis (dating back to 1992).

You'll be able to admire the engineering marvel in Hall 5.2 stand A041.
