Oh Shit I lost your credibility I'm so distressed I may not survive. Shootouts yes professional journalists and riders giving their review Ducati fail. And yes my friend who was a die hard Ducati fan says M I can't believe I'm going to say this I like the R1 better

I can only surmise after that volley, that Mark419ny is seriously screwing with anyone who wishes to engage him. There is no way that this degree of ignorance and incompetence can actually exist in a rational individual. And the spelling and grammar. There are six year old's that display more proficiency so I'm calling BS. Mark is purposely butchering the English language to perpetuate his entertainment. There is no possible way to be that retarded and not be under some sort of professional care. Good one Mark. You got me.
Thanks from Panigale78R and MotoX183

So, Ducati, MV, and Triumph wouldn't have production based race bikes or they would be just like all the others and we would have choice of color and name on the side. Then it would be 3 different cc sizes of the KTM RC390 cup and just a rider battle. That would get boring... Just my 2 cents.
The displacement handicap is all about valve skirt area. In a racing scenario, the smaller valve skirt area (from fewer valves) gives you less top end flow and less power, which is why the rules give 2 cyl brukes (not just Ducati) more displacement. In a real world scenario, the higher displacement and higher port flow velocity gives you a more versatile engine and a wider power range.

Thought id drop this clip with me on my 1299 in white group (slowest group) here at Eastern Creek, Sydney. At 2 mins you see me at the last corner and overtake the supposedly superior HP4 down the main straight. The owner bought it used for about AU$20k, and spent another AU$20k on it, which didnt seem to help him against my pani lol. We're both usually in faster groups (yellow or green group) and at the time he'd done more califonia superbike classes than i.

Enjoy!


With all that being said, he was a big bloke, i reckon easy 95kg suited up, im only about 75kg suited up. Still, makes the HP4 not so superior rofl

Mark - you should be in politics - every time someone calls out your posts, you say "I meant to say" As for price, stop with the Ducati price point. You get more HP for your dollar with a Corvette over a Porsche, but at the end of the day, it's just a Chevy.

I read that as a non-factory team. By your logic, Cal Crutchlow is on a factory Honda.

Your "I'm well informed" line cracked me up. I learned sometime ago that if a person feels the need to inform others that they're smart, well...
