Classic example of avoiding embarrassment. Ducati wants no part of a head-to-head comparison of 1000cc bikes when it has already been reveled their 1000cc is slower than Honda's 800cc bike.

Ducati should just suck it up and concentrate on the 1000cc bike but it looks like they will continue to salvage whatever is left of this season. So go ahead Ducati and dump more money and resources into this hopeless season and sacrifice your future performance in the up coming year praying to get another podium this year. Brilliant.

Smart move from the ducati guys. By staying out of the 1000cc test, they can see on what level the others are at, and at the same time dont waste more days like they seem to have been doing in mugello.

Get some info about what other manufacturers are doing, and then get to the workshop and do a better job. Nice!!

Go Ducati!!!

You couldn't resist a pop could you.

Your words have a hint of bitterness in them, did you own a Ducati once that feel apart (they usually do) ?

The Ducati UK dealers used to put your postcode on the plastics of the 916 so people would return them when they fell off (true story).

First off I'm a Honda guy.

And it's already been confirmed that their 1000cc bike is slower than the current Honda even though they have tested their 1000cc bike more than others.

Ducati is behind in both the current bike and the future bike. It's just my opinion that they should concentrate on the new bike and look ahead. I don't think they should sacrifice their future trying to play catch up on a bike that will be retired in a few months.

Please God as your main headquarters and offices are located in the State of the Vatican City in Rome Italy, please could you help the Ducati team fix there motorbikes. I would be very grateful if you could do this and would consider it a personal favour.

Yours Hopefully

im no engineer but i very much doubt electronics are the answer to a bike with zero front end feel! like many others im so frustrated with ducati and there stubborness to change and cant believe that rossi and hayden arent going mad behind closed doors and asking for a conventional frame!
