I had not been able to find any reliable technical info on the 1050cc engine. Here is some that was recently pointed out:

"Now powered by a 1050cc liquid-cooled 12-valve dohc three-cylinder motor, which shares only the gear ratios and a pair of outer sidecovers with the old one. Everything else is new, including the way the exterior water hoses of the old 955 motor have been removed from sight. All the previously rather messy looking plumbing is now tucked away beneath the fuel tank. So, the horizontally-split pressurised diecast crankcases house a four-bearing nitrided 120-degree crankshaft, fitted with forged pistons giving 12:1 compression. The cylinder head is all-new, with revised porting and altered combustion chambers. A brand-new Keihin multipoint sequential fuel-injection package sees a single injector per cylinder located below the butterfly in each 46mm diameter throttle body. The six-speed transmission has a similar choice of ratios to before, but is now fitted with a remote gear linkage for slicker shifting, as well as a backlash gear, same as on the new 650 Daytona, to significantly reduce noise and vibration."

Items of notice: Forged pistons, 46mm throttle body (45.77mm at throtle blade), revised porting and combustion chamber.

Maybe nothing to many, but I found it interesting.

Thanks to Racecomp, we know the sleeves are aluminum with Nakasil plating. Still trying to find out if the pistons are the same with a raised deck OR new design forged pistons were used.

The thread was lost during the crash.
