Press release from Picco:
The Picco V1 Race Shares the principles of quality and construction level with the Team version. Built on the same 5 port cylinder and long stroke scheme hosted by the new, stiffer crankcase, the Race edition features a slightly different exhaust port that confers a different power response. With the only other differences from the higher end version being a steel rear bearing instead of the ceramic one and a non DLC coated crankshaft, the V1 Race proves perfect for any level of racing. The engine also features the new double bottom-end adjustment carburettor that allows for a finer tuning.
Featuring a 3-port cylinder instead of the 5-port seen on the Team and Race versions, the Picco V1 Star offers a smoother power band. This version shares the same built quality of the Team version, and sports a balanced, silicone-filled crankshaft to optimise the charge flow. The unit is completed with the new carburettor with double bottom-end adjustment and a beautifully lightened and laser engraved cooling head.
