@All Ducati fans-As someone who has had a bit to do with German Manufacturing, I will tell you what VW will do,they will go through the company look at the return on capital and any part of the Co. that is not giving the return they require will be closed down ASAP and if it is making money they will make it better to make even more money thats the way they work.And I can tell you rossi,hayden,or burges will not make one bit of difference that's how they work belive me.

VW paid Rossi an undisclosed sum to not win on the Ducati. That's why he signed with Ducati. According to my informed sources Rossi's great-grandfather also did a deal with the Germans. We hope this one is more successful.

lets see if German engineering can sort this pile of junk out,about time someone with know how and engineering ability took apart the Ducati. perhaps now even road bikes wont fart and break down every few miles!

Let's not forget what Lamborghini was like before Audi / VW came along. Now look at the product like Aventador.

Definitely news out of left field but great news. The Ducati experience and name will live on.... just a better product will be the outcome.

Maybe Rossi will be racing DTM next year and this is the cover story. :)

Perhaps we'll now get a four pot out of the red team at long last, and with it a half decent motorcycle and the know-how to compete with the rest of the motoGP leading pack... Oh, and to compete in Supers without any need for cheating of course!

Ducati's new quad....The Desmoquattro?
Can they shoe horn the RS6 motor in the Desmo nail?

860 million seems like a bargin, my bid of 19.64 was not enough I guess...
