Ducati unveils the 1099!!!

  1. Any thoughts on this? Personally it seems kind of silly. It wouldn't be race legal and the current street bike makes so much power that it almost seems pointless (of course I see the current crop of Japanese liter bikes in the same way). I'd rather see the factories focus on weight loss rather than power increases.

    i guess power sells.

    if they're going for more power, i say they should just do their 990cc v4.
     

  3. I can guarantee you will see the desmosedici before they go 1100cc in a sportbike. Now 1100 in an ST4/MS4R, that might happen.
