I think that Ducati realizes that they've pushed the 'twins as far as they can. To be competitive, they'll need to produce a V4 or inline 4.

Crybabies! They've (threatened to) pull(ed) out before when they can't get the rules changed to allow their cheater bikes to win, errr DOMINATE.

Good riddance
Come back when you build a proper bike. I don't think WSBK is too interested in re-creating the Ducati-Cup of years past.


They have a 4 cylinder bike already.. make it into a proper street bike, make it a twin-firing big-bang engine like they've run in GP before and you can maintain your twin-ish, droning sound, lifestyle characteristics or whatever.

a woman with a c-section scar should NOT wear a swim suit that low. lol.

on another note. That kinda sucks for racing, but good for Rossi. Didnt realize he would be worth THAT much money. I mean...the whole WSBK ducati racing fund has to be crazy expensive.

that's a waist chain

I don't believe withdrawing from WSBK is down to Rossi's arrival.
The wsbk twin is pretty much at the end of its development cycle,
Aprilia and BMW are at the beginning of theirs.
The factory Xerox team is being bettered by the satellite Althea team (Checa).
Ducati will be back I'm sure,
with a V4

I've never liked factory teams in racing. I say let them make customer bikes.
