The R1 Team DLC-WC 2017 is a limited edition of our top-of-the-range on-road engine. Developed throughout the tests held on the 2017 Worlds’ track, this version features a different cylinder with updated timing that increases the bottom power to better suit the challenging French circuit. The engine is easily distinguished by a new engraved cooling head, specially designed and dedicated to the event, that maintains the same quotes of the standard version to obtain a low centre of gravity.
As in the standard R1 Team version, the crankcase sports a designing concept that ensures more stable performances throughout a wider temperature range and thanks to its improved stiffness is immune to any loss of RPMs due to unwanted torsions. The WC-2017 also shares the same double bottom-end adjustment carburettor for finer tuning and a better passage.
The crankshaft features the precious DLC coating that prevents any oxidation and any wear of the crankpin. Fitted with a ceramic ball bearing and a 7 port sleeve paired with a piston machined from high silicon material, this version represents the very best that modern technology can offer.
