Tamburini , Castigloni the similarities between the Ducati and Mv are so close because of these good people.

The F4 was going to be the replacement for the 916 at Ducati until of course Castilogni sold it to Texas Instruments I believe - much of the design development was done at Ducati so rumor has it

Ferrari engine design development... F4 designed by Massimo Tamburini (Claudio hovering)... In the CRC, well post Ducati.

An inline 4 cyl from Ducati... Heretic!

Heretic

I resemble that remark Alfons

I do recall the fuss and bother with WSBK back in the Doug Pollen / Fallapa /Mertens, I was at turn 12 when he hit the wall and who could forget the greatest WSBK rider of all time Raymond Roche - Ducati's 888 was being caught, even despite the rules obviously being in Ducati's favor - Regulations changed and then the 916 was born - I do remember something about the F4 coming along to be a viable alternate to the inline 4's from the land of the rising sun .... Im also old enough to remember when BMW was going to scrap the Boxer - I do also remember the 916's headlight not passing ADR and a poxy looking rectangular one being fitted to the Australian delivered Bikes




Iconic motorcycle designer Massimo Tamburini is resigning his position as MV Agusta Design Chief effective December 31, 2008. "I have dedicated a significant part of my career in motorcycle design to Cagiva and MV Agusta and am immensely proud of the beautiful and thrilling motorcycles we have created," Tamburini stated. "While my decision to retire was extremely difficult to make, I am confident the highly-talented designers and engineers in San Marino will continue the tradition of excellence that is the hallmark of MV Agusta."

Tamburini will now pursue "design interests outside the motorcycle
field." Coming so soon after Harley-Davidson acquired MV Agusta, it's
inevitable that inferences will be made that Tamburini is departing as
a result of that purchase. No official statement has been made by
either Tamburini or MV Agusta to that effect.

One of the most iconic motorcycle designers of all time,

Tamburini is
best known for the Ducati 916 and the MV Agusta F4 (which was
originally conceived as a replacement for the 916)
,

as well as the
Cagiva Mito and Ducati Paso. All four of those bikes are in the photo
gallery above.

We can only hope that retirement gives Tamburini the opportunity to
shed some light on the incredibly insular world of Italian motorcycle
design. His career is surrounded by controversy, including rumors that
it was his protégé, Pierre Terblanche, who actually penned the face of the 916.
