No doubt the big secret is whether its a switch to a narrow angle V or remain an L. Tell you what,if its a V and Sepang 1 is less than spectacular or at least, not on par,there's only one modification left.
i.e : Rider line-up.
My guess is,its still an L-4 rotated backwards within the alloy perimeter frame. Panigalle developement and all.

No prizes for guessing what the new Ducati is. It's a Yamaha! Oh happy Rossi, and Burger. Wonder how much they paid Yamaha for the rights to copy the MI and what will it be named? GPM1.

All the people who is writing negative things about Ducati ,Vale, Nicky and the development of the bike must be worried .Becuse they know once the ducati boys get the bike working they will be contenders to the title end that worries you all

Ducati never said the bike Nicky will be testing is a lower spec machine then Vales. Just that it would be different. Hopefully it is because Nicky asked for different changes to be completed. Do I believe that is the case? No, but lets hope so. The other possibility is that they are just trying to test two different configurations at the same time.....but it's probably just Nicky getting hosed again.

Whilst people may complain about Ducati you have to say their effort makes a mockery of the whole Suzuki saga. Small European company trying to compete with the likes of Yamaha and Honda. Credit where credits due. I for one hope they are more competitive next year or its going to be rather tedious watching the two Hondas clear off closely followed by Lorenzo's Yamaha.

So far we have no real idea of what we're going to see, and everyone's spewing vitriol at Ducati. Even if they do abandon their beloved L and trellis, as long as it wins races who cares. It would be more disrespectful to Ducatisti to make us keep swallowing something that obviously hasn't worked well up to now.
