Valentino Rossi optimistic new Ducati will be competitive

He may have only seen a virtual version of Ducati’s new GP12 machine on a computer in Bologna, but Valentino Rossi is confident the radically revamped Desmosedici will help him compete for victories in 2012. Rossi will get his first chance to evaluate the new Desmosedici when winter testing resumes in Sepang on January 31. The new bike will feature a modified...

Well

Got to admit Wosi, that your insight into what was in Capirossi's mind back then is far more interesting than the man's own explanation of the truth

Wosi......Kipper???

         Your Dreamworld is expanding,{ must be getting closer to heaven },opinion`s,opinion`s.Tell you what,if, at season`s end,it turn`s out that my prediction`s are wrong ! Then,after iv`e wiped away a few tear`s and maybe,chucked a few thing`s,I will come on this forum,and admit I was wrong.What I won`t do, is blame the opposition`s machinery,I won`t say the V angle was wrong,or that the Big Boy`s Bike had more top-end,{ blah-blah }.If I hav`to grovel I will !! So here we go.......1st JL or CS  3rd BS or DP 5th AD or VR and finally 7th NH or CC. Ofcourse,I`m not expecting to hav`to grovel,but what are you gonna` do,if and when,It goes tit`s up again?

Im wondering if the GP12 will feature more of the colour white in it's design. Judging from the team jackets it looks possible.  Who remembers Stoner's white Ducati from P.I 09 ? now that has to be one of the best looking bikes i have ever seen. I would hyperlink but that option is not working for me right now, so here it is.
http://images.theage.com.au/2009/10/18/796726/17963406-600x400.jpg  and
http://www.riello-ups.com/public/stoner_aussie_02.jpg

Mind you, this is one nice design which is obviously not going to happen. Still, beautiful.
http://www.asphaltandrubber.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/Oberdan-Bezzi-Martini-Ducati-Rossi-MotoGP-Valentino-Rossi.jpg      that is a design on the GP11, and look how much nicer the shape is compared to the GP11.1 .. that was hideous.

This has no relevance, but f*ck it. What a shot.

Ducati engineers used to say the data showed Casey, on average, should have lost the front 3/4 times per lap. This shot proves it's truth, as if there were any doubters.

wow.

Agreed Yam..

That white Ducati is a bit special!! But... I really loved the dark red and the design on the 08 version!

Yep, cherry red. Top paintjob there.

We need more special editions. I'd love to see either a Ducati or Honda in jet black along with the rider kit. Black wheels, black leathers, black boots, black helmet, visor ... Not gna happen because of sponsor but hey we can always dream.

Wouldn't be too bothered about seeing it on a Yamaha. The Duke(GP11) and the honda look a lot .. meaner. Will be interesting to see what colour the Yamaha team come out with next year, with their new sponsor having a distinctly orange display.

Again, i have to agree (WTF?!)

All black is just quality... I loved the Hayate Kwaka that raced once the factory pissed off... Real stealthy and mean looking!!

Yamaha Sponsorship and new livery....

Er weskit.

Photo of Misano, three very long sections on the track. Presumably the bikes brake hard at curva Bellaria? not and Stacey Coner (accoring to the record) won at Laguna. Hardly what you would call a slow track. It only has 2 tight turns. Look at it compared to Jerez or Mugello or Sachenring.

et vous (thanks I hardly know you, so please you vous and not tu) weskit.
