The Ducati 998R "Testastretta" is equipped with a water-cooled two cylinder- 4 cycle-fuel injected engine. It has a cubic capacity of 999 cc and an output of approx. 188 bhp @ 12.500 rpm. The maximum speed is in excess of 300 kph. One special feature of the engine is the "desmodromic" valve operation. This system of force operation works without valve springs, the valves are operated directly by cam lobes and/or rocker arms. The camshaft is driven by a toothed belt, as customary for Ducati engines.
