Ducati are going to bring a new chassis and swing arm to the next race! Wow that's quick, or was it requested some time ago?
I've read that the problem with the front end is down to the fact that the engine's front mounting point is too close to the steering head, so no room to engineer in some flex. So as well as a new frame, a new crankcase is needed, surely?

If ducati bring anything new out now does anyone think rossi will get it as he is leaving for Yamaha soon.
I think not I also think the current frame may be painted black to make it different

@Motogp fan

lol, if ducati brings something lol lol

Ducati knows how valuable having Rossi is, "If ducati brings something"?? lol that something is Rossi's recommendations. Ducati did whatever they could to keep Rossi, they even asked mr furusawa to come over and help. if someone on this planet can sort that Ducati, well Valentino Rossi.

Rossi's peformance at Le mans showed that he's got the ability he's just not prepared to give it 120% in the dry like Stoner did.

Disgrace for someone on 20million euro a year

You know what puzzles me the most is why do they only talk about the chasis, and tyres... Does anyone even consider the issue possibly being the forks themselves... i mean they do do all the steering o and yea and they hold the front wheel as well, not to mention steering. Maybe these engineers should look into that as well.

Honda is have a lot of chatter issues as well. and there chasis are supposedly the wave of the future. Just seems that purposely ignore the forks as a possible cause for the lack of feel and chatter.

Is Rossi really going to try hard to turn the Ducati into a competitive machine when he is leaving for Yamaha next year, and will Ducati really give Rossi access to new parts that will make a difference but also let the 9 times World Champion see their secrets (if there are any) for next years Ducat MotoGP contender? :? hmmmm
