(cafetheology.org) – Since the beginning of the series, high-revving four-cylinder engines have hit two-cylinder engines in the Superbike World Championship. Currently, the 1,000-cylinder units with the 1,200-twin cylinders have to be measured. After the shutdown at EWC, Ducati is the only manufacturer that relies on the V2 concept. This is the end of the season, however, since the new V4 Superbike is already in the starting holes. Since the four-cylinder engines have been in the majority for several years, the Ducatis enjoy exotic status. The character of the 220 hp Panigale differs significantly from the competition. We talked with two riders who had both two- and four-cylinder engines and the question as to whether the V2 bikes are harder to drive.Davide Giugliano already drove four different Superbikes in the WSBK. At the 2011 Gaststart and his Debt in the season 2012 the Italian on a Ducati 1198R. In 2013 he drove an Aprilia RSV4. From 2014 to 2016 Giugliano went for the Ducati factory team and drove the Ducati Panigale. Finally the Italian started with the Honda Fireblade. "The Ducati has a different torque curve through the V2, it is difficult to compare the machines, I have a lot of experience with the characteristics of the engine Ducati, and I still have a lot of experience with the Honda, "explains Giugliano in the conversation with 'cafetheology.org'. After some consideration, he comes to the realization: "I would say the Honda is easier to drive through the four-cylinder engine."

Giuglano's place at Ducati was taken this year by Landsmann Marco Melandri. The experienced Italian also gained a lot of experience in his WSBK career. From the Yamaha R1 over the BMW S1000RR to the Aprilia RSV4 to the Ducati Panigale, he was able to compare the different concepts very well. Is the Panigale to ride rugged and strenuous through the large V2 engine? "I think if the vote is right, then the Panigale can be just as easy as other motorcycles," explains Melandri. "The motorbike can be exhausting, if the tuning is not good and the machine gets restless.If the set-up is not perfect, the bike is very restless, even on the straights, but it is really difficult with many motorcycles.
