Harmonics?

I can hear a smoothing type harmonic sound under load at about 4500 rpms. Does anybody else hear a nice smooth harmonic sound at any speed or rpm's where the bike just sounds right? Is this normal in the Ducati motors? I'm not a mechanic so I have no idea. But I do know that it sounds GOOOOOOOD.

It's kinda like the sound of tuning a guitar with harmonics and you get that wahwahwahwahwahwaaahwaaahwaaaaaahwaaaaaahwaaaaaaaaaaaaa...... type of sound.

Sorry if this sounds odd, but just curious about the Ducati brand. I've had inlines and never heard anything like that.


By the way, 4500 rpms in third or fourth gear.

I haven't found the spot with the GT but riding with a frined on his ST2 we occasionally get the sound between the two bikes.

Very slight throttle changes in either bike can make the harmonic shift closer or farther apart.

Gives me goose bumbs under the leather.
