EDIT by CRASH.NET! This is a thread about Preziosi. Please restrict your comments to the actual topic.

they now face a lot of problems and sponsers ask if better days will arrive again... At this stage is clear that Ducati needs a new bike project a new responsable they need to prove that somethingh is changing inside that they are worcking for better.. i still dont bealive that this bike with this design can be competitive enaught to beat Japan projects.. i think Ducati need somethingh a bit more radical o mean they know how tp upgrade WSBk models they could be a bit more radical on motogp the bike locks more less the same since 2010 or 2011.. Just loock at the diferente between the Ducati 999 and the 1198 for exemple.. Was one change that come for better and now lock at Panigali completly diferente on design much more futuristic a bit like Aprilia Rsv4 project a smaller bike Etc.. if they keep putting patches on this bike i think they will not go far.. just my opinian

Look, Honda tested both a fully stressed concept AND carbon fiber as a build medium. This was years ago. Know what they found out with their research? The "frameless" chassis is too unpredictable at speed and carbon fiber doesn't work well as a moto production medium because it's hard to control torsional ridigity. ducati tried to get around this by "layering" carbon fiber on top of each other to increase or reduce rigidity, but it simply didn't work (ask Casey).

So, can we stop saying BUILD A TRELLIS !! USE CF !!!! BLAH BLAH BLAH

It's simply an inferior design, as you have all seen with your own eyes.

Put a bullet in the horse's head and start over.

now we know honda are running the same configuration motor it shows preziosi maybe wasnt so wrong after all.the bloke is an engineering genius with as much mental talent as the best riders have physical talent.
this is a sad ending to a fantastic career,and he has acheived far more on far less than many grand prix engineers.

hahahahah @rab27

wtf are you smoking?

ducati run an "L" 4 and Honda has "V" 4.

the fact that ducati's engine has the long throw to compensate for the "L" instead of the "V" is what many believe is part of the inherent instability of the ducati... basically a flawed design from the start.

you now we're talking about MotoGP right? the one with the motorcycles and all the spanish riders?

like all great minds , most end up being shot down after a while.
preziosi is a smart bloke who knows what he is doing , i had no doubt when vale signed for ducati preziosi's days were numbered , basically because i knew vale would not be able to ride it and vale has more clout in the open world so all eyes would fall on preziosi.
profesor x made a comment that was shot down by HRC troll , x was spot on , troll was ill informed , the tires are ducati's problem , they have not had bridgestone develop tires specifically for them since 08 when development was shifted to yamaha , since 09 they became control tires.
ducati need tires just right , maybe thats the one chink that caught out preziosi in terms of developing his bikes , simply because the tires change far too often to keep up.

Every problem on one bike has one solution or at least one way of improve the probleme but for that we need brilliante enginers exemple, Honda is one manufacter that allready prove is talente, not only on 500cc bikesbut speacly on the 1 year of 4 strokes, just imagine the project that was build one V5 engine and make te worck smooth and WIN has we know on the hands of Valentino was the best bike, Yamaha and Kawasaki have a more esay away on there style was allways 4 Cil engines maybe the best balance but was only good for Yamaha when they come with crossplane design, for Kawasaki was allways to agressive.. Aprilia fail with the 3 cil engine and is one small engine but the bike was never build properly result Humiliantion, Suzuki has started with one V 65 confiduration just like Aprilia use with the RSV4 model, but Suzuki never win any champion on 4 strokes even if sometimes was one Team that could podium.. Has you can see all of this projects could had been better if they where better

Has you can see all of this projects could had been better if they where better made, what i whant to say is that is nottingh wrong with the V90 or L90 engine configuration on Ducati, this type of configuration can Win but has you now understand it has to be build by HONDA..lolol exemple the RCV213 v is one V4 with an angle of 74 , is not 90 but for Honda allways Worck even if they had to build one V6 engine its about Experts on the business
