Ducati was to arrogant and thats way i dont understand.. they say they respect Japonese and they will compared to them.. But they also have one big mouth to tell they are right riders are wrong..

Amd Iven Bmw dont tinck they are the best only beeing germans.. The Bmw had a lot o simial craceteristicks with Japonese bikes.. And maybe they have evoluted somethingh because they are lesson to Melandri ans haslam

some mechanic around here... can explain this poor man if a V engine can be configured by independent cilynders ignition to obtain different bike ways? i hear Yamaha do with I4 crossplane to normal I4, a screamer, or crossplane opossite coordination rotatory or whatever
maybe noboy see, im in the bottom of comments jeje
but if im wrong please take note i am ASKING...thanks for understand, good races in good champs for everyone, only NOT for Schumacher...i hate him

If you watch closely the updates the bike is getting you will se:
- A more sweet power delivery engine...
- An Aluminium frame...
- A shorter bike...

All those solutions Burgess & Rossi gave them to Ducati the moment they arrive to the team. But you know, Ducati is too slow to lern this guys are right and just now they are doing it.

During 2011, after Rossi and JB recovered from the shock of just how bad the Ducati was, they tried everything they knew to tune it in. They exhausted everything within the narrow window of adjustments open to them. The narrow window was dictated by the swingarm mounted onto the back of an 'L' engine. Furthermore the engine cases were over engineered to withstand the pressures involved in having a stressed engine configuration.
If the new engine is a 'V' with lighter construction it could be all that's needed to move foreward.
Could we then see a return to CF?
PS Sorry Cal if this post is laughable.

Another exemple of Italians ideas.. I love the design and the hole idea of the project but when Italins tinck they will know how to worck with the possible future on present days they allways make tings worst .. remember the Aprilia rs3 Cube( they only go for 3 cilinder engine to be diferent then Japoseses) and this exemple is exactly what i tinck about some italians ideas lets make a V8 engine MotoGuzzi.. Only Italians to be so extreme..lolo they Dream a lot Japosese worcks a Lot

again, some mechanich can explain if an V engine could be ingnition independent cilinder for different results?

the Aprilia RS3 cube was a epic fail by the weight,
the other areas was at the level...

but a 3 cilinder fine tune and fine construction can
run good, beleive me, i remember the Foggy Petronas 3 cilinder in the same way...just then when Foggarty and Petronas spend millions in two years those idiots change weight limitation and the FP1 go to hell...

3 cilinder was not bad idea, but nowadays no space for it i think... i hope someone demostrate me the opposite...ejje je je

Some times Italians can be so arrogants that they can changed the destani and live of one man.. Remember why there is a constructor call

Lol, you're going extreme this time!!

Well you can't talk like you're an engineer and knowing nothing about structures. First you need to go learn basics of structure to understand how different material react differently. CFRP due to its composition has unique behavior under applied load.

@ RejectDonkey

For an "engineer", your deductive reasoning leaves much to be desired. You come across as being absolutely clueless. The ONLY thing(s) that really defines a Ducati is the motor (and to a lesser degree, the trellis frame). The use of carbon fiber is not part of Ducati heritage any more than it's a part of Honda, Yamaha or Suzuki heritage.
