I guess they didn't get their new aluminium frame ready in time and don't want to waste valuable time testing an abandoned frame (current GP12).

Rawdawg obviously has credit to his opinion as he has more people agreeing with him than on your views! Respect each others views or click "thumbs down"! Stop slinging mud and getting personal. This site is for people to share their views. You can thumbs "up" or "down" or even share your own. Grow up ... then enjoy the sport! :?

Rawdawg's post make more sense then 99% of the other crap on here. I think it is silly that they are testing on the 800cc when it only has 7 rounds left. Saving face is the only reason I can see behind this decision.

BTW, I have owned Hondas, Yamahas, and Ducatis and currently on a 1098S and an R6. But I am more of a Stoner fan than I am a Ducati fan. But I would be pulling for Ducati right now if Rossi and JB were not on that bike. I love seeing them having a taste of humble pie.

So, both Hayden and Rossi will be testing the the current 800cc bike at the 1000cc test?

I thought there was a testing ban in effect. Will Vito be testing the bikes, then?

Honestly, I think by bringing out the "1000cc idea" early this year to use on the 800cc bike has basically changed everything at Ducati.

I would not be surprised if the entire 1000cc plans have been scrapped and they are starting over.

Interesting...are you suggesting that Ducati might be re-working the GP-12 into something radical (for them) such as an aluminum framed twin-beam bike? More generally, they can't test even if they wanted to because they went back to the drawing board, perhaps?
