Good point; Ducati sales aren't entirely based on race results. As long as John Q Public sees the name in lights once in a while and a few red bikes at Starbucks, they'll sell. I wonder how many Ducati riders can even name 3 MotoGP riders of ANY brand, let alone a Duc?
They are gorgeous bikes and have a mystique, so as long as people buy 'em, I don't know how much their performance matters. After all, look how many KLR's get sold each year.
