no, they don't need casey to bring back, casey have a special talent to win that desmo. and casey will not there forever.

they need a bike that everyone can win. to achieve that they need a lot of feedback from different riders like how they do now.

i think they can achieve that by listening in their riders and give what they ask, not the other way around.

U think Ducati will end up returning to Carbon Fiber frame and probably adding a CF fork too similar to Britton's bike. Then, Spies start winning and Hayden and Dovi collecting many podium trophies.

Ducati still can't get over humiliated by the legendary Britton's CF bike.

They should get back to the screamer engine. I don't think it was the CF frame that slowed Casey down in 2010, but rather the switch to a Yamaha like big bang configuration.

Plus, it sounds way better.

Rightly so. Nothing wrong with desmo L twin or 4. It will be a cold day in hell when you see a pneumatic valve actuated superbike available for road use. I'm already taking a shine to Gobmeier's common sense approach as opposed to the clutching at straws and blame game Ducati's engineering staff have had to put up with since 2011 in a futile attempt to assuage the demands of a majority of one within the team.

I wholeheartedly agree about the screamer's sound. It's beautiful music to my ears! Though, I don't they'll go back to it. Even Casey agreed the big bang was better since it produces more "usable" power.
