Ha ha ha! It has nothing to do with being a true Ducati fan. The Panigale is an all NEW bike; not an evolution of a previously successful package i.e. the 999. Therefore, it's reasonable to believe there are going to be some growing pains. Ask Skyes about growing pains and the melting of his rear tire all year long.

It would be nice to see the panigale on top. but for me as long as Checa and his team mate is on the top 5 on WSBK. I will be very happy with it. Can't wait for this season WSBK

Absolutely love my bike, best vehicular experience ever! Plus I won't allow anyone to question my admiration for the firm and it's product

But for a twin to win in WSBK in 2013 is wishful thinking. Brand new concept with an engine that's down on power; my heart's with them, but my money......they'll have to wait a while

Yea, don't mention growing pains to Boeing! Making me wonder when my Shorai is going to catch fire...

I believe Checa was the fastest rider last year but to many crashes ruined his chances for the championship. Did he let the pressure to repeat get to him? It will be interesting to see if he can adapt to a whole new bike and do well. I do wish him the best of luck this year and hope he wins.

electronics

it will depend on how fast they get this in order.. in itself, the bike should have it all.

the main different thing is that in 2013, 5 brands are up there..

KAWA, HONDA,BMW, Aprilia, Ducati... now that is some competition..
more will depend on not missing races through injury and making top 5 on a permanent basis..
