In speaking with Bruce at BCM a few weeks ago I expressed my worries that air cooled bikes would soon be a thing of the past. He assured me that Ducati has a whole bunch of exciting air-cooled engineering in the works that we'll be seeing over the next few years. He says there's lots of life left in the air-cooled Ducati line! Recent einite-element thermodynamic modeling has turned up lots of latent potential that we'll see on the street in not too long! Bruce would know.
