Andrea Dovizioso - Ducati Team, 7th
“Speaking from a personal perspective, I’m fairly pleased with the day; all weekend it was very difficult to do a pace in the low 1:23s, so I’m satisfied that I managed to do it for the entire race. Obviously, we can’t be pleased with this result, as we were 30 seconds back, but it’s just further confirmation of our current gap. We couldn’t expect anything else today. We’re working a lot, but again, the bike is similar to the one we started the year with, so it couldn’t be otherwise. I’m not looking for excuses; it’s just the reality at this moment. To all the Ducati fans, I say be patient. We’re working as hard as we can to improve our competitiveness, but it’s not a situation that you can solve race by race or with simple changes to setup.”
 
Nicky Hayden - Ducati Team, 9th
“It certainly wasn’t the race we’d hoped for. I was having a good morning warm-up until I had a crash right at the end. Even though it was a small one, it damaged the frame, so it was best to switch to the other GP13 for the race. I hadn’t ridden that bike much, and I didn’t have the same feeling as with the other one, especially in terms of grip. In the beginning, every time I pushed, the rear would come around on me. It was a long, lonely race. We need to understand what happened, because we had a much better pace than that all weekend, especially with old tyres. It’s a shame because as usual, the guys really gave me their all, and they deserve better than that.”

Ducati Team - Barcelona MotoGP 2013 | Sunday's Photos From Catalonia

Ducati Team - Barcelona MotoGP 2013 | Sunday's Photos From Catalonia | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it
In a Catalan Grand Prix that was marked by sweltering, slippery conditions that contributed to no fewer than ten riders failing to finish and several others taking off-track excursions, Ducati Team racer Andrea Dovizioso was forced to ride in defence mode on his way to seventh place aboard his Desmosedici GP13. Teammate Nicky Hayden, meanwhile, experienced a premature end to what had otherwise been a promising weekend, as he crashed out on the sixth lap.
 
Having started from the ninth slot on the grid, Dovizioso was mired in the pack early on, and although he had some nice battles with Stefan Bradl and Bradley Smith, his bike lost grip as the race went on, forcing him to settle for seventh place. His American teammate lost a few positions just off the start but rode well as he made the passes to regain his fifth-place starting position. Unfortunately, a lap-six mistake on corner entry resulted in a race-ending fall.
 
The Ducati Team will remain in Barcelona tomorrow for the post-race IRTA test.

Up-Close with the Ducati Desmosedici GP13

Up-Close with the Ducati Desmosedici GP13 | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

It’s hard to get up-close with the Ducati Desmosedici GP13. For starters, she’s always traveling somewhere — a slave to her jet-setter lifestyle. And, when she finally touches down long enough for you to get a glimpse of her, she’s surrounded by men in red uniforms, who whisk her out of sight almost immediately.

Ducati Monster 1100R by Arrick Maurice | motorivista.com

Ducati Monster 1100R by Arrick Maurice | motorivista.com | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it
What would be the most desirable iconic naked sportbike ? Answer to that would be the Ducati Monster, the aesthetic appeal and structural efficiency is what made this bike iconic.


While most drawn to the Ducati Monster for its raw beauty and performance, many consider it a blank canvas, perfect for customization and personalization.
The feature of the day a Ducati Monster 1100R belongs to Arrick Maurice brand manager of Ducati’s North American market. Arrick’s custom Ducati Monster 1100R was a non-eligible entry for the 2011 Monster Challenge.

2009 595 Supermono Strada | Phil Aynsley Photography

2009 595 Supermono Strada | Phil Aynsley Photography | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Developed by noted Ducati Supermono tuner Alistair Wager, the Strada is the Supermono Ducati never built. Wager bought much of the factory's remaining parts stock and commissioned Pierobon, who built the original frames for Ducati, to construct a further 10. Of the 3 road-going bikes he's built to date, this (the 3rd) is the most like the originals. The main changes from the 1993 racers are the use of the Testastretta head, 104mm piston, 54mm throttle body with shower type injectors & starter motor (all from the 999R). The exhaust runs on the opposite side to the original. A one piece billet steel crank and balance mechanism are fitted (the later was cast originally). Green powder coated aluminium side cases replicate the magnesium originals. NGR slipper clutch. The carbon fibre body work is of modern, lighter type. The Ohlins rear shock was built up from NOS parts. The bike produces 75hp at the rear wheel and weighs 137kg wet. Cost £40,000 plus VAT. Photographed in New Zealand, 2012. Bill Irwin collection.
