An L4 engine? Why not cal The others I4 or -4? Horizontally opposed twins/fours/sixes are to be called what? What designators for engine configuration inverted engines? The 'blown' DKWs of yore pose another problem. How about the Puch split singles?
The Dcatis are a 90 degree V configuration. Says history.

I really want to see the Duke head back up the grid, and I'm pretty sure it will with time.

Ok, nothing amazing will happen this season and I'm 100% sure Audi/Duke will have realised that. This season will probably be a development season, getting the best design concept chosen for 2014 and totally sorted for 2015.

Getting rid of Preziosi and Rossi leaving was the best thing for them. I just hope Audi don't throw in the towel a la Vale. After all, Rome wasn't built in a day.

@ lawrencenunn,

People say that Rossi is old, yet they wanted him to with Ducati until the bike gott sorted. Let me see if thatwould be 2015 - 16 he would've been how old? People just don't know what they talk about.

@ Unfortunately

Unfortunately, I agree with you unfortunately. Marco and Dovi are similar in that they are both tidy, precise 'wheels in line' high corner speed riders. Dovi will grow to hate the Duc especially after it has spat him off a few times. I predict Dovi will be best Duc rider this year and finish 6th or 7th in the championship.

expect Nicky to be a lot stronger. After all Nicky did almost take Stoner's steam the beginning of his first season with Ducati. Ducati need to figure out those tires. Even if it means stealing some technicians from Honda.
