What makes this funny is the fact that the Ducati Corse sqad and bosses have ALL said the 999 motor is at the end of the development cycle. They can go no futher with the motor. For the '07 season all they are doing is tweaking the chasis to make it handle better than it already does. But that doesn't mean that V-4s aren't the future- right?
Does this mean I can go back to lusting after a ten-nine-eight? I had to stop after the definitive argument for the V-4 in the "One Racers Opinion" thread, but it looks like these facts/data make an excellent point about the Duc.
I hate to say it but I'm kinda Jonesing for a Ten Nine Eight myself. I don't have the skills to fully exploit it and a Hypermotard makes more sense for the street but I keep looking at the damn pictures of it!
