And some brilliant minds still claim The Ducatis sre cheating because they have an extra 200cc...

On a twin cylinder engine, with +6kg on it, I cant see the cheating anywhere. Unless they are laying low to dont get more penalized next year with the 1199.

Chechinello Junior you ***** cant you see the extra 200 cc they have which they forced infont and fim to increase 200 cc for twins back in 2008 the extra 200 cc on a twin is cheating especially in twisty circuit but on circuit with long straight 4 cylinders can even up the odds...adding 6 kg should not make ducati any difference when their riders can loose 6 kgs....wsbk is and always be ducati's cup.....that's they struggle in moto gp

@ cheater twins

Actually, the 1098r always had an 1198cc motor and the 1198r has an 1198cc motor as well.....

..thus, the assertion that there are an extra 100cc's is incorrect. The non-R 1098's are 1099cc.
