Yes I know it, I'm diluting view information on the New Ducati at Sepang, but it is not a choice for marketing information, but only because yesterday I found another novelty mounted on the GP14.

Crutchlow sees 'Open' class positives

Crutchlow sees 'Open' class positives | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Ducati's Cal Crutchlow was coy when quizzed on speculation the manufacturer was set to enter the MotoGP 'Open' class but admitted he could see 'positives' in making the change.

Crutchlow was speaking on the first day of the official Sepang MotoGP test, where he tested both the GP13 and GP14 versions of the Desmosedici.

The British star jokingly dodged a question from reporters over the potential for a switch to the 'Open' rules this season, saying: “I know nothing about it. Is there an Open class?”

Hayden: Open MotoGP Rules? As A Racer I Don?t Like It. But, As A Fan ... | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

It's no secret that 2006 MotoGP world champion Nicky Hayden's favorite era of MotoGP was the first chapter--when 990cc Monsters ruled the earth, when horsepower was king and electronics was not one of the overwhelmingly important factors in MotoGP racing. After that several phrases were embedded in the racer lexicon: Colin Edwards' "You're only as good as your programmer" and one fan's Jeff Spicoli-like summation "Traction control is a buzz kill".

Custom Ducati Full Sport By Bryan Fuller

Custom Ducati Full Sport By Bryan Fuller | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

The 1970’s Ducati Super Sport defined a new era and a new line of thinking for Ducati. A philosophy that would lead to the creation of the modern Superbike. Only around 430 to 450 have been produced and custom builder Bryan Fuller is one of many who, a few years back, fell in love with the 1974 green frame after admiring one at The Barber Motorsports Museum. He told me: “The torque and rumble is similar to a Harley but with smoothness and the ability to spin up the RRR’s! They are comfortable enough to ride all day, yet sporting enough to handle the hills or track. Hell, I even used mine to run errands! The 1971- 1974 Ducatis are for me some of the finest motorcycles ever made. They have it all: style, grace and power…” - See more at:

MotoGP Goes Partial Pay-Per-View in Spain

MotoGP Goes Partial Pay-Per-View in Spain | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

MotoGP series organizer Dorna appears to be pursuing a new strategy in its agreements with TV broadcasters. Where previously, Dorna had been fixed on securing deals with free-to-air broadcasters, recent deals have seen them agree terms with pay-per-view channels, in pursuit of higher revenues.

Spain is the latest market to see this development. The existing deal with Telecinco has been blown open, with Spanish telecommunications giant Telefonica taking over some of the broadcasting from Telecinco. Telecinco will show 9 races live, and a further 10 on a delayed schedule.

Dovizioso’s time of 2 minutes 00.370 seconds was his best ever at the Sepang circuit, on any bike…. It’s been a while since  the Ducati Corse MotoGP team left a test with  measurable success and visibly happy riders.  Maybe even longer since they packed up early, work load completed, but that’s what just happened....
