WSBK » June date scheduled for Checa Panigale test


@ Kev Why do people keep banging on about peak power figures? If you do, as you say know about engines then you will know that it is not just about big numbers, it also has a lot to do with how the power is delivered and where about in the rev range the power is usable. Ducati and all the other manufacturers know the benefits as well as the negative aspects of a twin or a four and it extends way past the engine alone, so I don't think basing you argument on peak power figures is really relevant.

@ mentalist Its not all about power, eg. I have a 749s and an r6, the r6 has slightly more power and about 15 mph more top speed but point to point or lap times I'm quicker on my 749. There is more to it than just power! And I'm not having a go at ducati by claiming they have an advantage, I've got one and I love it, but things can't keep going the way they are for the good of the sport.

@ Sick Cylinder My point about the honda sp1 was not that they won the title but that they built the bike because the rules favoured the twins over the fours. I don't believe the hype about any sports bike needing to be relevant to both road and racing to be a commercial success, what about the gsxr750? Still a big seller but not eligible for any major race series.For me the way forward would be the same rules for everybody and if you want to compete you must have a bike that complies with the rules, this would also help keep costs lower and to say that ducati's would lose their appeal if they changed from a twin to a four is nonsense, I didn't buy my ducati because it was a twin but because of the complete package.
