Their engine is the longest of them all, which makes for tricky weight distribution and the shortest swingarm of all of MotoGP. They MUST be working on a shorter one, as it is the only thing left to change. It turns out the CF bike was not that bad, after all. They spent an obscene amount of money, tried to beat the Japanese at their own aluminum frame game and ended up going half a minute slower.

The only thing Ducati have done since Casey left is to cement his legacy as one of the most gifted riders of our time. Personally, watching Rossi eat humble pie after his criticism of Stoner was the highpoint of his time on the Red Beast :)
