read a few comments arguing vales ducati was different from stoners.
indeed it was , stoner rode 2 totally different versions in his time there , in 07 he had no off season practice with the trellis framed bike other than the end of season test , so come losail 07 he had hardly any knowledge of the bike.
09 he was given yet another bike to start over again with in the CF design , something no one had ever tried before with no data or experience with such a radical Frankenstein bike.
2010 vale did the end season test on stoners 2010 bike , then the bike changed over & over to vales ideas.
by the end of 2012 the bike was almost Frankenstein again to ducati with the alloy twin spar , but thats what vale ordered , so the bike he left behind is his own version.
sadly no version of ducati prototype is ever any good.
but that is simply because it needs the right tyre to make it work , those tyres were taken away from it after 07 and sadly moved to yamaha.
