Both Casey and HRC seem quite happy so far.By the time the 2012 season starts i expect the bike to be a formidable machine.Interesting to hear Casey say that even a 230+bhp 800cc bike can run out of power!
Just goes to show how hard these guys ride.With everyone on new bikes next year we could be in for a very interesting season.Cant wait!

These 1000c bike only gets minor HP boost as far as I can tell. Massive improvement on torque though. CS seems can ride it well. As for the other manufacturer's competitions, for Christ sake DO SOMETHING. Otherwise It'll be Honda all over places. PROTIP: DUCATI, DO SOMETHING WITH IT!!!!

Everything going well for the 2011 champ right now.These fuel restrictions are completely dumb in my book.Interesting that Burgess now says Casey is a fantastic rider and did a wonderful job when on the Ducati and that the bike was at fault.
Apparently Suzuki haven't even started building a 1000cc for next year yet and may quit at the end of this season.

Burgess said that to ONE HD presenter Peter Beatie in an interview before the Le Man race.

That 'We could fix that ducati in 80 sec's' is still ringing through my mind. Im sure that will be his most regreted statement for a long time to come.

Stoner will win Championship after Championship and you will hear about the masses of Euro-losers turning away from the sport and Dorna losing out on heaps of takings.

iStab, Don't you mean Daryl Beattie former GP rider?

EDIT: found the interview on superbikeplanet: Burgess responded, "Look, Casey is a fantastic rider and did a wonderful job on that bike. But there were too many DNFs. In this particular instance, Ducati let themselves down by only analyzing the success. They never analyzed the failure. They treated the DNFs of Casey as (being) more specific to Casey, as bad luck rather than something not quite right (with the bike). .. Perhaps Casey had to ride too close to the limit to win. the margin Casey had was a lot slimmer than we would like to have on the bike that Valentino rides."

"How the hell Casey ever won races on it?".

I LIKE JB, truth straight forward, now people should realize that when Stoner was winning with Ducati it was due to his own talent rather than having a fast bike, that bike had a lot of problems!

Burgess's comments make the 'Stoner developed the bike into a dog' brigade here look the pack of fools they are. I await the denialist comments with interest.

C'mon, Westminster and Co, you're up a certain creek now, let's hear you paddling furiously.
