re: "desmo heads are quite tall if they needed to produce a smaller package they could use pneumatics"

lucky for them then they don't need a smaller package. not that they (ducati) would ever give up their desmo identity, but pneumatics don't necessarily yield a smaller form factor. many people don't realize an OHC is still used to lift the valves off the seat. they are essentially a "hybrid" system. nitrogen is only used for retention.

Blasphemy
Yammy dropped the 5 valve, honda dragged towards pneumatics.
Ducati built a not a twin cylinder,desmo heads are quite tall if they needed to produce a smaller package they could use pneumatics.This is gp racing, nothing for second in this game.I believe it when Ducati call the bike Demodici gp12

re: "Furusawa tried for years to "steal" Ducati information from it's engine's sound, he couldn't."

actually ducati really has nothing to hide. it's known they paired like 60 or 70 degree throws off the crank with a 90 degree cylinder angle in the D16. the production RR used the same. besides, there's nothing about the V4 configuration that's a "mystery" to either yamaha or honda engineers. they both built (and raced in honda's case) V4's basically before ducati ever knew from the configuration. ducati's "magic" has always been (and continues to be) in the top end.
