Only one of the WCMs is slower than the Ducatis for top speed.

No seriously, bikes are cool! but really seriously, this might be perhaps one of those instances where the slower bikes are quicker around the track.



Frankly, there are too many variables for there to be any kind of comparison, the bikes being the first, experience second, not to mention the differences between teams' knowledge of this track, screwed up sleep patterns, etc...

um, actually the 4 strokes are faster... john hopkins was the last 2 stroke to go down, and they dropped it because they couldnt get the smooth reliable powerband of the 4 strokes... think about it, why would they drop faster bikes...that wouldnt make any sense

Nicky Hayden... is crap. He has blow his chances in motogp. Ship back to the states. Valentino is the only talent on the tour.

correct - 4 stroke was an option which proved to be faster, most noticeably on the straits. the movie "faster" shows the change.

You left out LMP cars. An Audi R8 would be interesting.
