    Looks like the jury is in on the frameless design Ducati. It didn’t work in GP and does not look like it will work in WSBK.

  • Really? I haven’t heard Checa complain about front-end feel, but I have heard him complain about being down on horsepower…

    Brand new bike and already doubting. How long exactly did it take the S1000RR to be competitive? Wasn’t it Checa who captured the pole at Philip Island but then crashed out?

  • Brandon


    Carlos said on his facebook that Aragon is naturally a fast track and that twins never did well there mostly because of the air restrictors. If you notice on the graph, the speeds are noticeably slower on the Ducati’s. He also said that they weren’t carrying enough speed out of the corners either but he never mentioned that at Philip Island where he was on Pole.

    Lets not forget both Checa and Badovini are riding pretty banged up, Checa especially.

  • John

    Yeah Checa was pretty heavily injured in a karting accident just before the race weekend. He took pole in qualifying at Philip Island just a couple weeks ago. He was not up to form this weekend and it had nothing to do with the bike. EuroSport TV commentators continually remarked at how “stiff” and “uncomfortable” Checa looked all weekend.

    Darn it, Sykes!! I had you down for the title this year. Now go fix whatever needs fixing and start winning races!!

    hard to understand how the 6 year old honda is beating the ducatti…some comes down to the riders but still a big gap for a “brand new bike”.
