You know the other manufacturers are free to make 1200cc twin sportbikes if they want to. They choose not to. Here are the last 10 years of championship winning bikes
2003- Ducati - Neil Hodgson
2004- Ducati - James the ******
2005- Suzuki - Troy Corser
2006- Ducati - Troy Bayliss
2007- Honda - The ******
2008- Ducati - Troy Bayliss
2009- Yamaha - Ben Spies
2010- Aprilia- Max Biaggi
2011- Ducati- Carlos Checa
2012- Aprilia - Max Biaggi
And judging by most of the riders on the Ducatis, I'd say a lot of it had to do with the talent of the rider, not the "advantages" of the Ducati. Also note that until 2011, Ducati was a major 'factory' backed campaign. More involved than any other until recently with Aprilia and their efforts. I'm just saying.........the extra 200cc argument is bull**** IMO
