Good to see him unhurt. I hope these crashes aren't a sign that the monocoque Panigale, is a twitchy and nervous POS like the MotoGP bikes it was modelled on. I fear it will be as bad as the 2009-2011 MotoGP bikes. A motorbike needs a frame Ducati!

It did appear that Checa out broke himself into the corner. If there was an issue with brake failure/fade I'm not sure Ducati would come out and make that public.

I still do not believe there is anything wrong with the frameless design AS LONG AS the tires can suit it. Ducati was succesfull as long as BS helped them in GP If the tires can handle the load for the Panigale, Checa and Ducati should be fine. He put the bike on pole, it cant be all that bad.

Hope he's okay and get's back to form for the next race. It was nice to see Melandri run to check if Checa was okay after the incident. It would be great to see both these guys fighting up front at the next race to give the Aprilia's a challenge.
