If nothing else, the 'DuCalti' will be an entertaining partnership next season. Here's hoping, for the sake of both riders, that the bike will improve massively over the winter.

I believe Ducati are looking at a complete redesign ? Will be interesting to see what that entails.

I thought similar bud until recently.

I'm sure one of the 'brains' on this site (it may have been 'wosi', apologies if i'm wrong) stated that Ducati are stuck with what they have, due to blah blah, and also VW only bought Ducati (possibly 'jamie'.....ditto) to offset their carbon footprint so don't expect any development funds blah blah blah.

The bottom line is Ducati have a huge following and that following are generally loyal and equally wealthy. Here's hoping they bring out something that can compete/show promise and maybe attract another 'Alien' in the near future? Who knows.

Promising debut

even though it's on the Rossi derivative 2013 abomination. 0.6 off Lorenzo. What was the lanky yellow one off the pace by at his initial Ducati Valencian outing - 1.7 secs was it?
