It looks like a 916 that got left on the dashboard on a hot day.

Actually we have a lot of leverage on fellow NATO member Turkey. Also a semi independent Kurdistan with a U.S. Air Base would be a powerful deterrent to our enemies. The Kurds were the few that welcomed liberation from Sadam. Turkey depends on the U.S. for arms and mini AWACS (Peace Eagle) etc.

Yes, agreed. I fell in love with the original 916 way back in '94. But there is sort of an unattainable catch-22 standard set in the minds of a lot of people. If a new Ducati design resembles the 916, people will call it a lesser copy. If it doesn't look enough like the 916, then people say they should have made it look more like one. It's really a no-win situation for the designer.



My point is that maybe we should try to take the new bike on its own merits while we continue to appreciate the original. It's not a mutually exclusive perspective.

Re BTW. That would be me. Just thinking about "factory" MV Augusta's racing revs me up. Hope they can get them up to speed. Still a few Good Racers out there without contracts last I heard... AMA Superbike 07 is looking better all the time. Hope Ducati at least does Daytona, they're always fast there (Come on! Troy!).

This is all fantasy. What's going to happen is that the demos are going to cut off funding and leave the Iraqis in the lurch, just like they did in '75.

Default Desmosedici RR has better styling.

I think Ducati probably took the safe way out on the styling. As many have said here damned if you damned if you don't. I actually like the Desmosedici RR better

Not in AMA Superbike next year, Ducati Corse won't be here.



Yep, that "obsolete twins butt" is goin down for for sure, next year, Yep, for sure, Troy is shakin' in his boots.



Engine configuration don't matter as long as they stay with the dry clutch!



I don't care what the new Duc looks like, their looks always seem to improve, like a fine wine, over time. I just wanna ride one!

Hmm. So, Kawasaki and Triumph have a joint design studio?



This had to have come from the same guys that penned the 675 and the zx10.



...and then ducati painted in red and said behold the new bold different styling.
