I cant bealive t that someone that make one bike so radical has this loocks, have one funcking Motogp so ugly and that not make any sence at all on there performance.. Anyway Ducati never loss to much on WSbk basacly they know the game and have big influence, I never wach one Wsbk evolution from Ducati that was bad also because the ingridiaents are allways the same for them, this new bike is the new Flagship for Road Models and will be is first year on competician and like any other Ducati on the first year of competicion is for Win because they have one advantage garante the engine is the best for Track use but for 2014 we will wach Ducati beeing limited again because of other brands complaing, you know how the history is!! They can loss but aim 100% shure that this bike will be the best package for Win

Since 1988 Ducati has won 17 out of 24 championships that is an impressive 71%, they should be saluted and applauded, the Panigale monocoque frameless concept is unique and again they must be respected for the innovation. What I continue to disagree with however is to let 1000cc and 1200cc displacement bikes race together. The 200cc extra remains in my opinion an unfair advantage even with the previous 6Kg handicap imposed on the Duc, yet for the last couple of years Ducati seems to have fallen behind.

Its been a quiet start for the Alstare Ducati team, almost strangely quiet.
With the turmoil at GP level I expected Ducati to crack back into this championship with a more 'factory' presense but it almost seems to have slowed a little more, the results will tell the story once the season gets going I suppose.
Best of luck to 'our Belgian Ducati team' Hopefully we can pop round and visit during the season,we did with the Suzuki set up and the Alstare Factory is a cracking place, very cool enviroment indeed!

Slowed down? Quiet? They won the championship in '11, they can't win it every year!! And Aprilia still has the bike to beat. I for one could care less about a 1200cc twin vs. 1000cc four. This series is still the best to me. That alstare bike looks ok, i was expecting something a little wilder and in your face.

the internet is great in that it offers a medium where everybody (from the littlest to the biggest) gets to have an opinion.


not everybody's opinion is educated or informed and when this happens, mass ignorance quickly becomes the standard.
