I sure hope they are paying him a lot of money to ride that thing! Like Spies, Dovi and (formerly) Rossi...signing up there sadly means putting aspirations of winning on hold!
Stoner was able to find some magic there at one time for sure, but it seemed to suit him and to be fair, when he won in 2007 it wasn't just a bit fast but WAY faster then the Yamahas and even (gasp) the Hondas! The Ducati mid-season turnaround thing we've heard before. Would be nice to see but I suspect is just Ducatiphile wishful thinking!
