Top speed dont mean ****e at most tracks and who knows maybe Dovi missed his breaking marker either way power isn't as big a factor for Ducati in getting their bike right.

Average speed is the one we want increasing more power more problems sometimes...

Top speed was an issue for Ducati last couple of years.They lost that since they went for mid range at Rossis request.They struggled for time even on one lap basis last years.

rameez.solkar.7: A new fairing tested by 99 with large air intake and narower in width . Why not given the same thing to vale for testing ???

Yamaha may choose JLO or VR to test some parts. Some parts may be specifc to a rider (dynamics) etc. these is not some local race team trying out parts. this is a factory team. They would have planned to test their kit and the riders are doing so. I know where you're heading with your comments... Yamaha favours JLO more than VR. looking at VR performance so far, I can't see this.

Back that up then I can't remember a race where every Ducati was 5 plus kilometers down on the straights year after year. More often than not they are the fastest down the chute and don't give me a he said she said argument. Rossi confirmed that the engine Stoner chose was the better option for Ducati to go with.
