Production Ducati heads leave a lot to be desired. Ducati’s
obvious success in racing demonstrates that impressive power
can be achieved, but the gains made on the track don’t
always make into the production line and are seldom reflected
in stock port design. In terms of the ports; location, sizing,
shape are often dictated by racing homologation requirements.
For example, the 748R and RS boast very large (race designed)
valves coupled with ports seemingly designed for a completely
different motorcycle. Material selection as well, is compromised
MBP’s Testarosso Heads can unlock the potential of your
stock Ducati engine and deliver that ideal combination of performance,
reliability and drivability. We balance all of the elements by
matching valve size, shape and seat geometry to port configuration.
Our selection of materials for cylinder head components is dictated
by our commitment to reliability that matches performance. Bottom
line: We typically see horsepower gains of 15 – 25% (and
occasionally up to 30%) from our work and our stuff stands up
to the abuse of racing.
