    I know very odd with the lack Ducati on there, i know the very good reasons for the smoking sponsorship bans but they did get the look of the livery right in the day...

    Maybe Ducati has changed ownership yet again. But no one really knows who too... Harley? Audi? AMG? Kymco? Oh wait... Audi it is.

    I like the blood red though, very aggressive.

    Yeah, spied Audi on there but Ducati is still a manufacturer/brand, just owned by Audi...? Maybe there wasn't any room with all the sponsors already on there 😃

    I think the darker colour looks mint, not a fan of the boxy and flat seat/tail though.

    There is some ducati branding on the tank, I think they don't run the Ducati logo because it's 'unnecessary' and their livery should speak for itself...

    If it makes you feel better " Mission Winnow " is Philip Morris's new ideas think tank (we've got 10 billion customers, surely we can get money out of them some way )
    Note: this may not be the universe where the above is relevant.

    With the athlete he is and the access to the type of medical facility he has, it won't be as much of an issue as to plebs like us.

    Scaphoid injuries are extremely common among motorcycle racers, as it is the bone in the base of the hand, which usually hits the ground first. The list of riders who have broken their scaphoid is very long indeed: Lorenzo joins such names as Casey Stoner, Nicky Hayden, Stefan Bradl, Jack Miller, Kevin Schwantz, and many more. How badly the injury affects a rider can vary enormously, as the bone receives very little blood and tends to heal very slowly. A fracture can be fixed quickly with screws, but the fracture itself may not heal for a very long time.

    Nicky Hayden had to have a row of bones, including the scaphoid, removed, after the scaphoid he injured in a crash at Turn 1 at Valencia turned arthritic and failed to heal. Casey Stoner had to have surgery on the scaphoid five years after originally breaking it. On the other hand, Toby Price won the 2019 Dakar Rally with a pinned scaphoid, after breaking it in December.
    Definitely better access and care and they are as hard as nails but they would subject it to much more use post-break than us plebs. We'd refuse to use our hand for months and squeal if anyone touched it 😃 well maybe not that bad but we're not made of the same stuff they are, nor do we need to be.

    I'll never forget his Assen comeback. Also, before my motogp following time, but have heard he broke both ankles and raced.

    I didn't think it was too bad (it's basically a mocked up GP18 anyway) until you pointed it out. It DOES look boxy, like they've thrown the French Curves in the bin and pulled out the ruler instead. But the lines of the paint don't do it any favours, although the salad box definitely seems more squared off than previous versions.

    I think they are going for the brand association model.

    I.e it’s called a Ducati, entered as a Ducati and looks vaguely like a Ducati. We don’t need to sticker it with ‘Ducati’ everywhere, we’ll let the paying people advertise our bike for us.

    Imagine doing that to Ducati roadbikes... their sales would plummet. What good is a Ducati if the owners can't proudly display the Ducati sticker and laud it over people and tell them they're just jealous because they can't afford one 😃 I had one once (it was awful <Grumpy Cat>) and was tempted to gaffa tape over the 'Ducati' on the tank for the lolz. *puts on flak jacket* (butthurt if you must, but there is an element of truth to it for some owners)

    Just buy an MV Agusta every armchair expert wanker will swear black and blue that you are riding a Ducati.

    Just because you made that mistake doesn't mean you should convince the rest of us to do it.

    I dont mind the look of the GP19, but I own a Kawasaki and think that looks good, so its a bit of a moot point.
