Ducati WSBk 2012

Just been watching the World Superbike and listening to them mention that Ducati may possibly stay with the current model for next years racing and then hearing Hodgson go on to say all they need to do is find some more top end speed.
I'm pretty sure Ducati have already found it, but having to fit 50mm inlet restrictors just doesn't allow them to use it.

Makes you wonder how well they would go without the restrictors
If the new bike is even better what restrictions will the officials then apply to it
Will they reduce the restrictor size or add several Kilos to the 165kg they are currently allowed which is the same as the 1000cc fours.
Maybe they will have to suffer on both fronts

Also makes me wonder how well a unrestricted 1000cc V-twin would go, do they need the extra 200cc if they are then going to be restricted
