    Default stupid question

    The 2 valve desmo engine ie 2 valves per cylinder is called desmodue, shouldnt it be called a desmoquattro because it has 2 valves per cylinder 4 valves the whole engine.

    same has the 916, 748 it has 4 valves per cylinder 8 whole engine, and ducati call it a desmoquattro or does ducati base it on the one cylinder?

    Well you would have thought so but then they use a different naming scheme for the desmosedici!

    In 15 years of asking and answering questions professionally, I have only ever been asked a stupid question once.

    There is only one stupid question, its the one you do not ask.

    There is no such thing as stupid questions, only stupid answers.

    You guys are all far too nice. Of course there are stupid questions, usually by stupid people and there are also stupid answers, sometimes by not so stupid people
