Maybe Ducati will finally get somewhere !! Valentino Rossi never got on with Preziosi so there had to be something wrong and it seems arrogance has finally pushed the man out!!

Bazx7r, that's actually quite funny!
But maybe it's not a capital L, just a lower case l, so it could be a long stroke single like an old 6/1Lister?
All cast iron and 4 horsepower... No wonder it was slow!

re: "Ducati are NOT racing against Honda, they are racing against HRC which is a very small shop inside the Honda Company."

yup, just like the skunk works is a very small shop inside lockheed that gave us the U2, the '71, the F117, and the F22. more accurately, this is small but carrying a big stick.

Wow, the comments on here labeling VR & JB the culprits, conspiracies with tires and the lack of CS.

Please, a short history re-cap,

Ducati were competitive 2005 to 2007 due to tires designed specifically for the bike.

Ducati were competitive 2008 to 2010 due to CS.

CS was pick 4 at end of 2006 and if one of the first 3 accepted, ducatis competitive run would have finished at 2007 & stoners career would have finished in 2006 (at that point, a lack luster career at that).

My point, Ducati have never been a great bike, through tires and CS they managed to achieve what they have and CS owes Ducati just as much for his success as they owe CS for theirs.
