Default Re: Interesting day on which to announce the GP bike

granny...with the evolution of the 916 motor the services become less and less expensive, as they have not neglected to think about the service required when they designthe motors. My neighbor has a S4 monster, his last service (12,000 miles, he is a moto commuter) came out to about 450 bucks. looking at the service statement, only 1 valve was out of spec, so maybe thats why it was on the inexpensive side of your numbers.



In all reality, ducati has realized, especially with the coming of the monster, that people are looking at ducatis as a viable only bike, and expect longer maintenance intervals at more reasonable prices.

Default The front end

I'm guessing we haven't seen the front end yet is because they haven't settled on the ideal design as far as aerodynamics go. In the press release it says they were still testing.

Default "owning the very best"

Ducati's are certainly beautiful and exotic, but that doesn't mean you own the "best" and are "privileged." I guess it's true what they say about the Ducati Attitude.

Default Re: Ducati's GP bike breaks cover

It doesnt look like it uses the steel trellis chassis...it looks kinda like a solid black beam coming down the side out from the fairing. Aluminum?? I dont think carbon fibre is allowed in the chassis. And for the exhaust, it looks like a 4-2-1, with the 2 pipe stage being huge, and the 1 being the canister.

Seems more likely to be dual 2-into-1 so the front and rear bank exhaust systems are seperated all the way to (and maybe through) the cannister

Read the post. It does use the steel trellis chassis.

People who don't ride Ducattis are sometimes just as nice as people who do.

The contrary is less likely.
