To add to my post above, the examples of bikes with engines too powerful, and thus upsetting handling, is rife in motorcycle racing history.

I am 100% of the opinion that if Ducati detuned the top end a bit, and added that bit to midrange for driveability out of corners, their handling will immediately improve a bit.
Casey Stoner was one of the few people who did well on a Ducati in recent times...... :ricky:

Jip, you need exceptional riding ability to overcome the lack of engineering skill at Ducati, Ferrari (& Audi, the holding company).

Care to substantiate that statement, or is it your "enlightened" own opinion ?

.... context, Cocky, context.... It's in the posts you quoted.

I highlighted the post i (& 2 other people) responded to. Also see my post #108, quoted below:

Italians just know how to extract more power from an engine...... Ferrari or Ducati (or Aprilia).

Dookie, play nice now. It's 2SD's (not so enlightened) opinion.

See my prev reply (to Cocky) for detail. I trust my loyalties meet with your approval.

Solo, firstly, the quoted piece on the lack of Italian engineering is not from me, secondly, why do you say that my opinion on the Ducati's too much HP making it a bad handler is "not so enlightened"?

The more power an engine makes, the better the chassis has to be to cope. Ducati is at the point where their chassis' are struggling a bit with the monster top end.

Solo, why do you think that even with such a stonking motor, the Duke's still get handed their arses on a plate by the Yamaha's?

The Honda boys are a little quiet this morning...  :lol8:

Ducati is probably glad both their riders were taken out, saved them the embarrassment of finishing where they were.

Their factory is too close to Ducati's. :imaposer:
KTM will soon learn that the MotoGP is not Dakar, here you do not come and enter a bike first year and run away with all trophy's.

The arm is in fact re broken and he will need another surgery, so his ride was both impressive and very brave.

Yes Dan, I have to admit I am a bit puzzled as to why KTM  entered this Hornet Nest, only Time will tell.

Yep, and us Honda boys are going to be quiet for a considerable time to come. Honda has a shit load of work ahead for them, but somehow I am not confident it will be fixed soon. There problems started two years ago and just getting worse every year.

So you're not a fan of the Honda that was on the podium? C'mon Cal!!  :ricky:

Brad injured and got 9th from 24th on the grid. Amazing ride. And Darryn was in the points 2nd race in a row. Won't be far off the top ten if he can keep it consistent. Was a good weekend  :thumleft:
