The 851, with its powerful liquid-cooled eight-valve V-twin Engine: , heralded the start of the modern era for Ducati. Previous superbikes from Bologna had been powered by air-cooled V-twin Engine: s. Many had used the marque’s unique desmodromic system. which closes the valves with cams instead of the conventional springs. But the 85!. with its four-valve heads and fuel-injection, was a considerably more modern and powerful unit.

Chief Engine: er Massimo Bordi had been determined to create an eight-valve Desmo twin, something his famous predecessor Fabio Tagliorti had always resisted. Bordi’s 85 lcc Engine: retained Ducati’s traditional 90-degrec V-twin layout. Liquid cooling, Weber-Marelli injection and the improved breathing of the new cylinder heads gave plenty of mid-range torque and a maximum output of lOObhp. making this the most powerful Ducati roadster yet.
