WSBK » Davies ‘forcing entry’ to negate acceleration shortfall

@1MoreRound Agree with most of this line of thinking. It will always be an uphill battle and even if more rule changes allowed the Ducati to be competitive again, most people will think they are cheating. If they made the V4 as the top of the line sports model then they could go back to basics on the twins and make them more reliable, more enjoyable to ride and forget about trying to beat ZX10Rs etc. Then the things that you said in jest, but based in truth, could be negated. The Panigale is too highly tweaked. Pistons the size of dinner plates and bore/stroke ratios that are off the scale. The V4 on the other hand would be far less stressed than its MotoGP brother.

MotoGP » ‘The GP15 is a real Ducati’

So let me see if I understand the genius of HRC. Ducati solved the understeer problem by altering their existing 90 degree desmo V4. The same basic racing motorcycle that they introduced in 2003. From 2002 to 2006 Honda's MotoGP bike, the RC211V, was a FIVE cylinder machine. So Ducati had been racing a V4 for four years before Honda released their V4. Perhaps Mr HRC thinks that an aluminium beam frame was invented by Honda. Or maybe he thinks that the solution that was found was made possible by Ducati copying Honda's . . . ? I guess we will never know because he certainly doesn't,
