Just be thankful that kpaul is being censored by longride. He's only got five of the first eight news items. Imagine what it would be like without longride's crushing boot of tyranny.

Yes an 1198 V-twin is not far behind.. 800 V-4 is the way to go boys..Time to give up on the Twin in racing everyone else has Suzuki, Honda and Aprilia recently

It's amazing how much time that a supposed critically important engineer at Boeing has to search the internet and submit articles and posts all day long.

He's as authentic as a 3 dollar bill. He's a fraud, plain and simple. He f&cked up and let the cat out of the bag, and just watch him sing and dance now. It's all a put-on dude.

What'd I say a few days ago about this- KP?

FIM will alow it. Ducati won't mass produce a V-4 because the "Boss" pretty much put it in stone that the L-twin will be the race bike because they need to race what they sell. So, buddy, you won't see the V-4 in WSB or AMA until after the 2010 race season, if ever. Now, with the current WSB lap time closing in on the GP bikes there needs to be a system in place to differenciate the WSB bikes from the "prototype" GP bikes. I believe that the way for them (GP) to really differenciate the things is to keep the liter bikes in WSB and AMA as the "premiere class". But expect a rules change by 2008 that will make the "Superstock" class disappear and the "allowed" parts on Superbikes to shorten.

Yeah. I caught that phoney baloney Wikipedia engineering crap he tried to take credit for. It's more and more transparent every day.

That and him telling Sean a couple of days ago that he was getting his bike back on Monday because he crashed it.



Must have accidentally skipped a few pages back in the fraud diary.

So he crashed it running over that stick, took it in for repairs, took it for a "50 mile training run", then took it in for repairs again?

Really you said that a LaPlace transform and the Thevinim equivalent circuit analysis is useless that makes you the fraud and a ***** poor technician not an engineer.

Good for Tardozzi!

Dance with the one that brung ya I say!

Ducati sells twins, people who buy Ducatis want twins. WSB wants twin riders to watch the races, WSB needs to keep twin bikes competitive, I smell a rule modification.

Actually i think it is not debatable. The 999 is clearly very capable. it won it last year and bayliss is kicking butt on it this year. I think, without reading the article, the whole idea is to be able to be competitive at a lower cost. I support the notion, despite how i feel about privateer racing a duc.

Anybody who thinks wsk would be better off without ducati is smoking something.

at the same time the whole debate about twins vs. i-4 seems silly. it's cool to see them racing each other. whatever makes for better racing is what we should support, not some missplaced brand loyalty.

if you want some interesting thinking read dennis noyes' article on speedtv on how close wsk and motogp bikes are becoming.

It seems to me that if Aprilia can build a 4 for WSB Ducati certainly could. There would be nothing to prevent them from continuing to sell twins if that's what the market demands. Many sportbikes have been pretty succesful in the marketplace without any race pretensions.

"how close wsk and motogp bikes are becoming."

Sound like the 800 V-4 is going to migrate to WSB and or the street at some point.

The new 1098 is still almost 20 horse down on the Japanese fours in stock form so I would hope that WSB would allow this change at the very least if not 1200 cc's. HP/liter is always going to be less for a twin than a four unless very expensive measures are taken (as Honda did with it's 8 valve oval piston GP bikes). I say cut the Ducs a break.

Does Ducat read MO? Can they accept that the GMP is right?

Yep I agree. Too me this whole increase the twin by 100 cc now and 100 cc latter is very silly. It's like Ducati reads MO and can't accept that kpaul, the Great Motorcycle Prophet (GMP) is right that Twins are dead in racing...

Yeah Yeah Just feeding the flames ... Your Superstock and 1000cc theory for WSB seems plausible..
