Bet all you want because, come this November, we'll all be getting FREE STUFF!

I think there should be only one racing class, monocylinder unlimited cc with megaphone.

Anyone have a baby bottle and some spare diapers handy?

Not a bad price for a race-ready machine. I bet if you bought a new Honda CBR1000 and put the superbike HRC kit on it you would spend almost 3 times what this bike is going for. Ducati is coming up with cool stuff these days.

ill take two. one to have, one to hold.
seems a reasonable price for a well to do racer- perhaps even cheap in the course of a couple full seasons, all costs considered. i would buy this as apposed to a giant SUV, and just get bus passes for The Little Lady and kids..until they left/divorced. then i would sell one.. and still have one to hold.
Thanks for the fantasy.

Unfortunately, Ducati hasn't taken the bait in Superbike. I DO see a few 848s entered in FX, though.

Waaah!

Remind me again who has dominated AMA superbike for the last 2 or 3 years. Maybe we should make works Suzukis carry around 15-20lbs of extra weight and restrict thier intakes too?

Before you say it, yeas it really is the same scenario, Jordan Suzuki never even gets a look in unless Mladin or Spies bin a bike. Are all superbikes really created equal?

yeah, I think the rule change came way too late for Ducati to put a team together for 2008 plus they'd already commited to supporting Larry Pegram in FX

as far as next year, who knows? with AMA selling off the management rights to racing it'll be a whole new landscape next year.

Myself I'm stoked for WorldSBK at Miller
