There's a saying in History class that goes, "you can't know where you're going until you know where you've been" It may behoove Ducati to roll out the old bikes for comparisons sake. One trellis frame, 1 stressed trellis, 1 carbon screamer, 1 carbon big bang and the new bike. Then let each rider test them until they understand them and take their feedback to develop a whole new bike. Ducati arrived at the current design through feedback from Stoner first, then from Rossi and Hayden. Quite possibly, Hayden may have preferred the trellis, or Spies the carbon frame. The data they generate from the old bikes may be beneficial to finding a proper way forward.
