Oberdan Bezzi is little more than a prolific Photoshop Phantasy Artist.

For some reason, some of the moto rags publish is dreamwork, implying that the images are prototypes and future designs of the OEMs.

The characteristics are similar to the Twin below 6K You can lug the
engine down and it pulls hard, or harder than the twin as long as the
fueling is correct ( mine is remapped ) After 6K there is no comparison.
the engine is a pure rocketship all the way to 12K. The HP and torque
dyno graph is gradual build, no flat spots and a little over 150 RWHP.
I thought I might have some regrets about getting rid of BOTH of my
V-twins but after my first hour in the saddle of this machine I won't
look back. The last track day I did in November I followed a guy
that had the Tuono APRC on my 07 and he would constantly pull
out 10 bike lenghts when we hit the longest straight and I would reel
him back in the curves then BOOM... 10 lenghts + down the straight
again, thats what got my attention !
The Rotax twin is a fantastic reliable engine, the Aprilia four takes it
up another level,,or two..
Go ride a demo somewhere, then figure out a way to get one !

It's a fair trade, I reckon, you ended up with the same amount of cylinders. :)

Yeah and there is absolutely nothing bad about the two cylinders I had, the Rotax Mille's and Tuono's are sooo much fun
