    The best part is not the bike - all buyers get track time in Italy on the Ducati MotoGP bike.

    Let's not quibble about which bike it's on. Both of them will scare the living shit out of your average punter and probably most regular track riders.

    There's more performance difference between some sets of tyres than MotoGP vs WSBK bike.

    So who's buying one, and can I have your Italian WSBK experience?


    Please?
    The greatest excitement comes from besting who you were yesterday.

    You chase that realistic dream of that ride on a Honda. Your knee pads aren't good enough to talk anyone out of a play on a WSBK

    I've witnessed first hand what the Australian sun can do to carbon fibre...

    The frame better be treated and UV stabilised to the nth degree or you'll be returning to you $100k+ shitbox in front of the coffee shop and find the engine sitting on the ground surrounded by a yellowy powdery -used-to-be-your-frame substance.

    Ahhh who am I kidding, being in an Italian bike they would have taken everything into consideration and it will be faultless.

    And the reason for the Akrapovic being on it is because that's what the WSBK bike uses.

    Oh hang on... they're building 500 of them? convenient number considering that's 1/2 way to the requirement for homologation for WSBK, expect another 500 being built and seeing Ducati use it to attempt to pull in the performance of the ZX-10R.

    They have reduced it to 500, so this will be eligible.

    I kinda like when manufacturers do batshit crazy homologation specials, eg. Honda NR750.

    Even if it was just have to look at BST rims or A380 wings that get damaged/cracking, I wouldn't want a carbon fibre frame.

    Ahh nice, there you go... The WSBK source I found still listed 1000.

    They'll push to get this thing through... probably with another 200cc out of the motor and maybe then have 1/2 chance at beating real motorcycles with their 2 cylinder dump truck.

    As for the carbon fibre, it looks like all of it is painted/coated so as to stop UV degradation...

    I'm sure there's something fucked on it which I haven't found yet.

    Unless I bought a faulty one where everything works.

    Inspecting a CF frame regularly would be important.

    With BST rims a visual inspection quickly shows up any damage through the UV resistant clear coat.

    I have sets on 2 ducatis. No problems. Riding includes a lot of high speed potholed backroads and dirt roads. No cafe crawling.

    Think you need to get a track bike again Turbo. Your getting well cranky lately or are you just on your last week of your swing away?
