2020 Ducatis

Old article from mid 2019, but scroll to about the middle...

“ Surely someone at Ducati has had the idea of putting the 1260 DVT engine into the Supersport?

Ever since Ducati launched the Supersport in late 2016 it’s been a mystery why the firm hasn’t added a larger version to the line-up.

Made from Monster building blocks, it should be a simple matter to put a larger version of the Testastretta 11° in place of the 937cc unit in the Supersport, and indeed at least one private owner has already transplanted a Monster 1200 motor into his bike. Of course, the latest and greatest version of the Testastretta 11° is the 1262cc DVT version, as used in the Multistrada 1260, so that’s variant is most likely to be used if Ducati decides to finally build a bigger Supersport. With the old Panigale 1299 leaving production, riders wanting a large-capacity, sporty Ducati with massive V-twin torque are short of options; a Supersport 1260 would fill the gap nicely.”

I think the cruiser & touring only will have the DVT. For the sportier bikes using the testastretta engine won't be getting it. The Monster R is now abolished in the line up. It came out as a replacement for the streetfighter and now the V4 SF is released the R falls away. If you check the spec on the last R one can see they had no intention updating it. The monster S is superior to the last R.

I think the DVT switches to normal valve positioning from 4000 rpm, so it's mainly for town riding that it has effect. Basically reducing power and emissions at lower rpm. I'm guessing by the way, based on a YouTube video I watched 3 years ago.
