Will it kill the japs?
Will it BE RIDEABLE? It is not the riders coz then we are talking four riders who cannot ride...
No show, we want performance from the yamacati!

It seems that rotating the 90 degree L4 engine bsckwards still hasn't solved the mass distribution problems. Given the time interval of 3 months they spoke about before the next 'new parts', I wonder if that means they've finally accepted that they need a more compact V4 layout?

Rhino, nice work you have continued the tradition of starting every rossi/ducati artical off with a pathetic sounding bleat.

Ducati revenue 2008 $400m, 1000 employees.
Honda revenue 2008 $140b, 180,000 employees.

Even stoner only managed to position 4th in 2010, he would have been 5-6 at best in 2011.

Ducati fluked its one GP title, with a perfect storm of talented rider, whos riding style suited the bike, 20+bhp, bridgestones and the best GPS traction control system. They have fallen further and further behind, and even with the $ that rossi will bring their MGP budget is a 20th of Hondas and they have 10 odd years of ally frame tuning to catch up on.

Stick Rossi and Hayden on honda and you would have two more aliens to deal with.

Here Here bender being saying that about last year too, Stoner wouldn't have been much further ahead of Rossi and that could be put down to experience on the bike. So hope the person who talked about a more compact V4 as yes the problems will continue as long as they have an L4.
