Found this article from MCN. What stood out was the following statement.

"The dyno test takes up to five minutes and the bikes aren’t bounced off their rev limiter, they are only taken to 5000rpm and speeds of just over 60mph. Once passed, they are good to go. It takes roughly 10-14 hours, not including machining the parts, to build a complete Ducati motorcycle from start to finish."

Oh dear, I wonder who is correct MCN or a certain rider on here who slagged me off because I run my bike in my way. He was saying that they run every engine at max revs, and I think that he also said he had seen it happen. Conflicting information somewhere.

I think this numbers are different from bike to bike.
Which model they saw on dyno? Maybe a Scrambler or a Monster 797?
When I was in Ducati Factory I saw Multistrada 1200 test on dyno. The tester start to check many different things and the engine works like break-in period but the last 2-3 checks I saw Multistrada over 5000 rpm (sure no max revs) and over 170 km/h.

Having been to the factory, I saw they also "cold run" the motors after they are assembled before handing over for assembly of the rest of the bike around the motor.

Impossible...! How could DUCATI have dyno readings of 9000rpms with horses and torque ect.... so if this statement is true then DUCATI DYNO page is fake???

They dont do this test for every bike. The performance measurements are done during dev stage.

Do you really believe that DUcati dyno every bike? You can't be that stupid.
Are you the stupid one???They would only dyno a few for product testing maybe even one... the rest will be built and shipped with NO DYNO's unless I read what was said about the dyno testing of not about 5k wrong and he ment just his bike at a shop other wise.. a Dyno reading will be at max revs to see the correct figures.. so are you that FU€King STUPID to even reply to my comment???

Yes Klee I'm very aware... I just saw above something about DUCATI only did a test dyno up to 5k rev . Unless it was for something else I'm saying that's incorrect or DUCATI could not produce the dyno sheet on there web page that goes over 9k revs... that's all I'm stating..

Like I said I thought it read they only did up to a 5k rpm testing.. I did not read correctly as he ment if they test other bikes that are built.. I ment from beginning to get total power figures. So sorry I miss read but @Fredinfrance 🖕🏻:x 🖕🏻

I didn't see max revs when I went in March. I was pleased to see they treated a new engine with respect. I saw several engines being tested.
