This thread will try to get to the bottom of why wings on a Ducati, or any bike, are cutting edge brilliant or just d*** ugly. Thoughts?

The ones on the new fireblade are barely noticeable they're so nicely integrated. Looking forward to the 44teeth superbike shootout.

My thoughts are that its a bit of a marketing miss. They could have made them much more integrated with the design, at present they stick out like dogs balls. I know something about foil design and tbh, it's a bit of head scratcher why they went for this complicated route. I know the rules dont allow a lot of freedom but check the simplicity of the Suzuki


Sure higher speeds in motogp but not a lot different where it matters. I think in the end we will accept it and move on but right now its an ugly solution.
