Anyway, back to the bike - it needs some white to break up the red. Looks a bit of a mess, kind of like someone who does track days and has slapped a load of stickers on their bike to make it go faster and to increase their riding skills
Donít count out Jorge. If he stays healthy, itíll likely come down to him and Marc for the title. Dovi will need the Honda guys to take each other out a few times to have a shot.

Last time ducati won a championship was because they had a rider with a riding style that suited the bike who wasnt scared to ride it at the limit. I dont see that bike ever winning again unless a wild man like marquez gets on it. Ducatis bikes imo only seem to perform at the ragged edge, they wont work with a smooth operator like lorenzo. Just my personal opinion.

I thought George did a cracking job and he won me over, previously I couldn't stand him but he gave it a real hot go and had a bit of success.

I agree!!! I was hoping to see 99 get a few more years on the DUCATI!!! He definitely is a better rider than 09 in my opinion!!! I look forward to watching Miller and especially Bagnia Race with the independent team!!

it's hard to tell especially if you don't see the bike up against all the others. i think pramac is going to be the ducati with all the lighter, whiter colors and it might even have a healthy amount of blue. but for the last couple of years, all the team bikes seem to be awash with multiple colors so in 2019 if we start seeing a bunch of solid colors or definite two-tones, the all-red ducati might be a winner. it will certainly be that "red bike" on the track kinda like the suzuki was the "blue bike" in 2018. also you probably already know this, you have to see the colors in person where they really pop as compared to on tv or online/print.

As technology keeps advancing, more and more "rider" is being taken out of the equation, it's getting to the point where with the right electronics and aero package a good rider can beat an alien. So I wouldn't count Ducati out just yet.

About time they got rid of that ugly crappy grayish paint job, the desmo is looking like a ducati should. RED
