redwine. I think you had too much of your namesake.

The reason Ducati has a name especially with Joe public road rider is from it's achievements in WSBK especially with the 916 and its subsequent evolutions.

It doesn't matter who you are, rich and clueless or Italian and blind with loyalty, unless the Pani does the buisness in WSBK no one is going to buy a Ducati now especially smone that has followed GP's for the past few seasons.

@ BoZz Ducati had always employed world champions for the factory rides.(except Dovi) World championships aren't easily acquired. Don't be a tool the bike IS the problem. Period.

They're not trying to mae the bike go fast at the 1st test, they're trying to make it respond to chassis ajustments
in a progressive manner, once you achieve that you
then have direction in setup, something the Ducati has a fundamental problem with

Its only a piece of crap when you have the wrong rider in the saddle.Give Dovi a chance.The gap will come down i am sure.Early days yet.

I'm thinking that Ducati needs to break Stoners' GP7 and GP8 out, maybe even Haydens....and get their new electronics and engine into them.

Would be great for them to just run them as is and see how they compare to the newer Ducatis
