But that's impossible -- Ducati can't have anything like that in the works for the 1098, it's OBSOLETE!



The future is the $60,000.00 Desmocedici and the VFR 800; all other engines are now obsolete (I mean -- didn't you READ the article that KPaul posted whilst sniffing fumes from that burning tire? MY GOD MAN! Listen to the Grating Monomaniacal Pedant!).

Default Talking out of your a$$ again?

My 13 month old little girl has more a informed opinion about the future of motorcycles, and all she can say is "Dadda".



Hush now KP and let the adults talk ok?

Default Re: One Racer's Opinion Regarding The Future Of AMA Superbike

In-line bikes are not going aywhere. They will rule the racing world for at least 5 more years. V-4's are great race motors but it will take a while for the public to adjust to the retail side of this. The VFR (truly a fun bike) is not a high demand bike and the only other V-4 is a power cruiser that hasn't changed since its introduction. I can see the writing on the wall and accept that 750-800cc bikes will be the "new" Superbike (probably around the '09-'10 seasons and the superstock will remain a racing class but without factory support as to let privateers showchase their talents- as it should be).

In other words I should dust off that RC45 I have on stands in my garage and get back on the track with it?



*disclaimer: I have no RC45*

KP, currently, from the grave, H. L. Mencken is taking a shot gun to the theory of "Those who can -- do. Those who can't -- teach."

Default Well it didn't take long. kpaul's short rebuttal

Well the GPTB responded with their usual opinion which is usually "let's see what kpaul says and then lets say the opposite"
[*]Why 800cc V-4s? (schizuki and pdad the ever clueless ones asked this question) Goto motogp.com and find the answer.
[*]longride and seruzawa never read everything before they start attacking. longride should of read this comment from me "Now that V-Twins are dead in racing 4s can go back down to a sensible size. Remember the move to 1000 cc inline 4s was caused by the RC-51 and Duc 998 dominating WSB. Now that folks have seen the light.. a golden era of V-4s is about to begin."
[*]The first evidence that V-4 are going to dominate superbike comes from THE APRILIA V4 RACE MACHINE ENGINE – A CLOSER LOOK
