Great Reading Here...

..... but what I find most interesting about the Rossi Ducati Italian tragedy is Ducati reluctance to give up on the lagacy of the 90 degree motor or in not using the Cobas twin spar frame earlier. Sort of like Porsche and the 911 but here the legacy works.

I liked grand prix racing where different design compted 4 stroke two stroke diffrent motor designs Ossa alumninum frame from the '60's ? ELF ?

Now it is a kit of parts Ohlins, Bridgestones, Brembo, all developed to work with the Delatbox frame not a carbon fibre box.
