This year Ducati used the engine as a stressed member of the frame. A good idea in concept (weight savings and mass centralization and all that) but it has been very hard to control. The bike is give little or no feedback, particularly with the front end.
All bullsh!t aside, it is fascinating to me that one guy in New Zealand was able to build a bike from scratch and make it work, when an entire factory struggles with a similar layout.

A little apples/oranges but certainly the performance/dollar ratio is in staggering favor of the one-man show.

Yeah Stoner is again champion but he was on the best machine. The greatest rider in the history of the world was on a piece of crap. Really just sheer luck. Wait until next year when Rossi really gets the Ducati dialed in.

Hahaha. He is such a nonissue, I almost forgot Rossi was even in that race.
