Occasional useful idiot...
No, but here is the website of oberdan bezzi. Seems he designs a lot of bike stuff.
My crap guess is he has been commissioned to come up with a few ideas...

Looks like someone's being playing with photo shop...

It seems a little wierd to me that if they were going to do race replica street bike, they would do it in different colours... and with different tyre sponsors... I know WSBK use Pirelli, but Ducati won't be in WSBK next year, so why not run Bridgestones as per motogp replica...

Also... the last I heard (through the media... no in house info here...) was that Fiat will be going to Ducati with Rossi...

I think its the sickest looking bike ever and I hope that is what the team goes with next year.
Only comment; the number 46 should be flourescent yellow with an outline like typical Rossi livery.
If this is the bike can you imagine the leathers and helmet? Hands down the coolest looking team in GP history if this is real.
I'm going to have to widdle out a Ducati body set now for the GPV, notice the swing arms are very similar? lol

Wow the last three laps were really interesting....!

Good chances for the Doctor next year.

Ducati was great and Rossi was really willing to go onto the podium.

Really funny indeed.

Ducati wasn't very good at all today.... out of 5 bikes on the grid, Ducati filled the last 4 positions of the race, and the second Ducati to qualify was Hayden... in 11th position...

1 of their riders seem to get it sorted though

I can't work out why nobody else can get the thing to work... ocasionaly someone will get going quick at a race... but the following meeting they're nowhere again...

Like it or not guys, he is the only rider that be consistantly fast on that bike...

it will be interesting to hear Rossi's comments on the Ducati after the first time he rides it.
If I remember Hayden's first comments were something like 'what ever they are paying Stoner, its not enough'.

I remember of couple of years ago Mika Kallio saying that the only difference between Stoner and everyone else riding a Ducati is his ability to get on the gas mid corner and allow it to slide through. Maybe that is why Stoner has had trouble with it this year because the big bang does not turn the rear around causing the front to go wide. This bike behaviour is second nature to Rossi which makes me think the big bang engine was introduced for Rossi.

The big bang engine has been around for a while in different bikes and on different brands over the years. Now the Ducati with improved rear grip the front is not hooking up as well and that is something Hayden has commented on and Stoner loses the front end most of the time he drops the bike. He does push it hard and gambles more than usual probably but it seems fairly common to Stoner.

Rossi sorted out the Honda and the Yamaha he can sort out the Ducati just watch. I cant wait to see what happens next season.
