re: "Its not the 1 time that Ducati do this caind of extremes engines.. all there live was like this its just part of the evolution they made on the engine, exemple the 999 was whell know has extreme engine on there relation between Short and Stroke and was the only bike that really give a fight to the 1000cc when they both where 1000cc 4 and 1000cc Vtwin"

let me help you out vilas, the 2 engines you are referring to are the 998R and 999R testastrettas, both were short stroke variations on the desmo theme. bayliss worked wonders with both and in 2 different chassis.

re: "Something that is supported by the fact that Checa was almost on the pace in the close of season test despite using only race tyres and "development electronic mapping"

something that is also supported by the fact that la marra and the pani LED the points in SSTK briefly and were only 3pts adrift going into france.
