Here's to hoping too, that the Ape is a good bike outta the box. They are strong in WSBK.
We should get a pretty fair comparison between the Ape and the Ducati, anyway, with Nicky switching over.
I still remember Nicky saying they don't pay Stoner enough after he first rode the D16. I would expect the Ape to be much more user friendly.
On the other hand, when Yonny Hernandez switched from the ART to the Pramac D16, recently, he raved that the D16 was the fastest, best bike he has ever ridden.
I think he did an admirable job at Aragon, too.
