No great surprise, given that Ducati with all their experience took a year to shakedown the Panigale before taking it to SBK.

Good luck to them, they make some of the prettiest bikes I've ever seen.

The original marketing plan of the F4 in superbike and the F3 in supersport was a much better plan. No one expects the F4 to win in the premer superbike class but they do want to see it compete. The F3 is new but could actually be a contender if not a winner in supersport. Its better to have 2 bikes getting the viewers attention than 1 Bike getting attention with 3 bikes in classes no one cares about.

Let's hope the BSB scrutineers show some respect unlike last time when they accused the team (can't remember the team)of cheating 'because thats what happens in the European SSTK'.

Suppose the question is why? They had already stated they was going superbike racing! Are they expecting regulation changes and don't want to spend developing a superbike when regulations may come closer to superstock or supersport? Because going into superstock is risky, if it isn't a frontrunner they carnt blame on lack of development! The r1 is a perfect example, in superstock it simply isn't competitiv, but with more open rules and room for development it is.
