@Buelliful, one must remember that Ducati could've homologated a different engine should they have wished, Aprilia took to geared cams but something which they have to revert back to original spec now..the fact remains Ducati felt they shouldn't have to 'compromise' and very Italian reasoning behind that as I mentioned elsehwre..somebody mentioned throttle bodies too, got to be true also but if you aint got the money, you're not going 'help' a non factory affair and prove you can do it come what may. Checa has rather taken to official duties with Ducati presenting newly launched bikes ( 1198 and SP )and such..they plainly wish to maintain WSB impact as they'd have just got Nicky H to do some extended duties if they did not, I don't think they could've afforded Vale even if he couldn't technically ride a branded Ducati before his Yamaha contract finished :)
