@ Slide Rules! You're pulling me up on things I never said.
They have built their image on singles in the smaller classes and are associated, in most minds, with twins on the road and track.
I am aware that they hadn't produced a MotoGP bike before. They did campaign a Twin 500cc in GPs in, I think, 1971/72 with some top 10 finishes. When they entered MotoGP they knew they had to come in with a 4 to have any chance.
I didn't say that I thought the Vee twin was exclusive to them.
I have been a fan of Ducati since watching SMB on the twins at Brands Hatch, and owned a 250cc single in 1960 because of that.
What inline 4 did they produce, I can't remember one?
