Seems like they will be money ahead by not having to pay Rossi the 15 million euros, no? I realize they gotta pay Hayden, Spies, Dovi, Iannone, but the likelihood of the 4 of them costing what Rossi cost seems slim?
PS - Ducati reveals this bike, and the only thing available are crappy low res pics? They must not want anyone scrutinizing pictures too closely
