MCN puts the V4 on a dyno!

Im sure these will be breaking the 200hp mark!

Well, it is an 1100cc V4, would an RSV4 pull similar numbers as well if it were to be 1100cc as well?

Not sure what the latest RSV4's are doing on the dyno, but the Panigale v4's stated 214 at the crank (supported by the wheel hp numbers that are showing up, as in this vid) is 194.5 crank hp/liter. That's not an unusual number in itself, since the 600 class bikes have been over 200hp/liter for years. But nonetheless, a 195hp 1,000 is a very strong bike.

What Ducati have done by going to an 1100 is give the same top end as their homologation 1,000cc R will likely have, but with a more linear delivery and more low and midrange torque, since it's intended to be licensed and ridden on the street. The R, if it hits the same top end power numbers as the 1100, will indeed break new ground in terms of specific output for a street-legal 4-stroke motorcycle engine. But it'll need to turn at least 15K rpm to do it, and while no doubt awesome on track, will not be as suited for road use.

I think WSB rules will not permit a 14 or 15k rpm limit. In face they have knocked the Kawasaki down to 12 or 13k.

It'll be interesting to see what the limits are next year. I expect some lobbying from certain parties... Besides, you gotta admit it's kind of silly to see a WSBK rev limit lower than what a fully warrantied street bike comes with stock. That might be a good plan for Dorna; cap rev limits at the homologated street version has.

The initial rev limit will be the dynamometer measured rev limit of 3rd & 4th gear averaged, plus 3% or 1100rpm above the dyno measured max horsepower rpm of a production machine. Whichever is lower.
That's the rule for where the WSBK rev limit for a bike starts out. It can be further adjusted based on performance.

Essentially there's nothing stopping anyone from revving their engine that high as long as the homologation bike does too.

WSB is turning into a cycle version of NASCRAP. If the streetbike does it then the race bike should too.
