Using the spec electronics and 24 liters of fuels is the distinction that would make it a "production" model.
Can't imagine Ducati could even give one away at this point.
Yeah, I can see them lining up already
and last season we all thought that the turnip trucks would improve this year. Let's see- today the factory Ducs, ridden by very experienced racers, finished behind:
a guy who broke his clavicle 2 days ago
a rookie with a broken finger and toe
another rookie (recovering from hand surgery- I forgot!)
a CRT bike (that is really BAD)
I'm beginning to wonder if MM could give the factory Ducati bikes a good race on his former Moto2 bike.
So, in the spirit of the Tour de France, maybe the Ducati factory wants to compete for the Lanterne Rouge. (if you don't know cycling- this is NOT a good competition)
