ditching the carbon frame was the first logical step.. rossi and jb realised streight away the weightdistribution was all wrong and they had no mechanism to adjust this other than using the suspension to load the front at the exspense of reargrip or rear causing chronic understeer (simply put).. the only logical(and cheepest) option available to facilitate this and free up the effectiveness of suspension adjusment was to susspend the engine within an adjustable medium....this was the FIRST logical step but ducati couldnt swallow their pride enough and ****d around for a whole year with alloy air boxes swingarms galore with exactly the same problems... when they did finally get around to a cradle frame it emerged rushed with no parallel development alternative so when initial results suggested the engine configuration was still offseting progress and alot more frame/engine development was needed.(not to mention tc )rossi and jb knew time had ran out .....
