1200cc 999 yes please

I hope that the powers that run world super bikes allow ducati to run the 999 in 1200cc format and dont want to go back to fours but like every one I know I want more power, probably dont need it just want it and the extra torque the extra 200cc would bring,
I just hope it doesnot look like the GP bike ,. I like the looks of the 999 and hope it will look like a 999mat, I love my 999

Do you really need more than 140bhp on the road???

Mind you, if it's on offer why not?

I don't think it's going to happen as Suzuki and the other say they will drop out. But MCN have asked to keep a eye out near the Ducati factory. I think if it's a Horse power thing then the Dukes are going to lose with japs (gsxr 1000 K5 ) 175bhp from a road going one, it's going to be hard to beat. But then you have class and common. I like class

not only will it sell but it will give Ducati back its street cred, something it lost with that 999 thingy.

well, 20% more power will put it up there with a gsx1000 easy, and sell I'll have one thanks, and do you need the power? I think 140 is a bought right but I'll have more as the 999 is one of the few bikes that you might be able to put that 170 bhp down on the road, it's a twin thing.
