Good luck Dovi, but it will be on limit situacions that you will understand the problems of this bike.. The good point is that is a factory and pay better because to put Ducati on the Top it will really be a Long term project but put LONG on that..

Dovi never did find bridging the gap from 250 stroker to 800 V4 to 1000 transverse 4 a problem. I see no reason to doubt his ability to adapt equally well to 1000 L4 and he probably will in a short space of time.
If he can just get that first dry race win monkey off his back,the cat will be amongst the pigeons.

I thought one of the problems with the Ducati was it was easy to get to a certain level but once you try and push beyond that you start to encounter issues.

you are so right there.
he hasn't had the bike on the limit yet that's why it feels ok, look at the way the bike is in the wet when you cant push it to the limit, its a good fast bike and able to run up the front, but when its dry and your looking for the limit you cant feel it
