Here is a picture of the new aluminum-framed Ducati GP12 that will begin testing tomorrow at Sepang under factory riders Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden. This is the all-new bike that was rushed through development in the last six weeks . . . only previously tested by WSB champ Carlos Checa and another factory test rider.
We will see at Sepang who is fast and who is not. We suspect Ducati will be a step or two behind both Honda and Yamaha, but the time sheet won’t lie, and we will bring you updates on the testing.
