Basic architecture is familiar, but this second-generation 75-degree, eight-valve, liquid-cooled V-twin borrows little more than a few gears from its predecessor. The 103 x 69mm cylinders add up to 1148cc and an alleged 155 bhp at 10,000 rpm-30 bhp more than the 999cc Super Duke. The latest dry-sump design incorporates an integrated oil tank, yet at 141 lbs. is no heavier than the old 999cc lump. Vertical slots flanking the stacked headlights feed a pair of 52mm Keihin throttle bodies, while redesigned cylinder heads set compression at 12.5:1. A Controller Area Network conveys electronic data throughout the bike. The 1190 designation leaves room for a 1200cc RC8R for World Superbike competition.
