    Thanks for that interesting comparison between the 803cc Scrambler engine and the 500cc Pantah engine from which it (and all other cambelts Ducatis derived). It is of particular interest to me as I have both.

    What a brilliant article! I'd imagined that the Scrambler engine would be very much altered from the Pantah, but they are remarkably similar, quite a testament to the Pantah engine.

    Very interesting stuff there. The original design still going strong in the latest evolution of the belt drive 2 valve is a testament to the work that went into the Pantah engine.

    And remember that the 4V engines are also derived from the Pantah. The 851/888/916 used the same bottom end as the 900ss, with revised bore and stroke, but with water cooling and 4V heads.
    Every Ducati engine to date except for the Panagales and V4s are derived from that 500 Pantah. The significance of which is often overlooked.
