I don't know, but I think Ducati threatened to make Stoner pay for it to get him to not crash this year. :laughing6

I don't know if it's their own description, or motogp.com's description to call it their Kitschy 500 Livery.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitsch

Quote:
Kitsch /kɪtʃ/ is a term of German origin that has been used to categorize art that is considered an inferior copy of an existing style. The term is also used more loosely in referring to any art that is pretentious to the point of being in bad taste, and also commercially produced items that are considered trite or crass.

But that 'splains it

"being in bad taste" is exactly what it is... Wander how much Rossi' share of the check is for running such a horrible paint scheme.

$100,000.00??????

Some spectacular work they do on MotoGP bikes, but I gotta go with the majority in saying that looks like azz.
