Wonder if this decision is going to do any damage to their sales here in the US?

I dunno it's not like they've been dominant here in racing. I think people like Ducati's becuse they are Ducati's......

I actually own an R6 a cbr600rr and a duc 749. I really like my duc and beilieve it or not it has been more reliable than my cbr but i know a lot of ducs give trouble. Not saying CBRs are bad, I enjoy them all.

I'm not sayin they aren't reliable, just that thier racing results here in the States aren't the reason for thier sales.

ohh and to stay witht he thread, it is a shame but they just can't give good results, not consistent anyway. I am not too familiar with the AMA regulations that Paolo is taking about i do know that WSBK they are doing a better Job if not check at Bayliss.

I know they are different, way differet but my point is that I guess regulations in WSBK are a better fit for Ducs according to Paolo.

they def are more suited in the twins favour. me myself i would lvoe superbike to be in superbike rules kind of like the australian superbike rules are. that will make things less costly. the minute you start putting htings like tractions control diffrent forks swingarms and the like you start steering toward the prototype catergory which is not what superbike is about.

Ducati has already said they'd be back in '08. They are playing to win. If they aren't winning, it isn't worth their time. They want to take a year off to develop something else? Go ahead. I'll wait.
