It has 8 valves on 2 cylinders.

I'll blame it on Chrome autocomplete..

Or maybe I was convinced it was V4, but those came out later.

Curiously, this engine, being a V2 with a 90-deg angle, is often described in Italian magazines as L2 because of its tilted position.

I think many (most?) Ducati twins are 90 degrees and the front cylinder is somewhat horizontal(ish), therefore I can see how it makes an "L" shape.

But I think it makes things confusing if different letters are used to describe same fundamental cylinder layout at different angles.

Some incredible numbers for this venerable Ducati. It accelerates almost as fast as 918 Spyder.
