2012 in review – Stoner retires! Rossi leaves! Ducati sold! OMG Justin Bieber buys an 848! | Ducati.net | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

Our first year of Ductalk.com has now come to an end and in reflection, I don’t remember a year when there was more to write about in the Ducati world and that’s coming from somebody that bought her first Ducati 23 years ago.  In that regard, our timing to start Ductalk was lucky, because few days came and went without something worthy of mention.  Bombshell announcements (Stoner retires! Rossi leaves! Ducati sold! Justin Bieber buys an 848!) were the monthly norm. And the images? Well, I doubt there will ever be another rider and bike combination more beautiful at rest or speed than the spectacular colors in combination of Ducati, Rossi and Drudi....

For the rest go to http://www.ducati.net/2012/12/2012-in-review-stoner-retires-rossi-leaves-ducati-sold-omg-justin-bieber-buys-an-848/

Nice price! And a 400 (in my opinion) would be a great way to build ist time bikers brand loyalty as well as take a bite out of those massive 250 Ninja "starter bike" sales figures...

Ducati Team, Sachsenring MotoGP | Facebook | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it
Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team #04) – 8th  
“It was a difficult race in which unfortunately we were unable to make the best of the situation. I made a mistake at the start, forgetting to switch off the speed limiter at the end of the pit lane, and so I lost several places, which immediately complicated everything. I began to recover, but the battle with Aleix Espargarò slowed me even more and I also went off line on the wet part of the track, losing a few more seconds. Unfortunately I was not able to keep up a very fast pace, and it’s a pity because we could have brought home a better result in these conditions. But, still being fourth in the championship after the first half of the season is in any case really positive.”
 
Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team #35) – 10th
“It was mayhem at the start, and in the pit lane I nearly got knocked off by Rossi but it was nobody’s fault, just one of those incidents, and in fact the start of the race was really exciting! In any case we chose the wrong front tyre for sure: we should have gone with the harder one, but this is racing. The positives to take from the weekend are that we were more competitive in the race than in qualifying or practice and I made sure that we finished today. I was really disappointed in the last laps when I got passed by Pol Espargarò, Andrea and Bautista: I felt we had a good chance to finish in the seventh position but I couldn’t fight any more than I did and we were at the limit with the package today in these conditions.”
