That's fine with me that they rate the Ducati poorly. Hopefully it will keep squids from joining our community. After all, the bike with the most horsepower is obviously the best right?

Carlos Checa may not agree that the Ducati is worse than the other liter bikes.

Agreed, Checa has SIX wins already and is looking at the Championship! He didn't just win yesterday, he completely smoked the rest of the field!!!! Not bad for a bike that got a shitty review!

Ducati Finished 1-2-3 in race one....doesn't matter if the Ducati is 7th place or 1st place, it is still the best looking bike out there and that could be the reason why they didn't have Ducati in the main picture?

I called them on it http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/100/10...omparison.aspx and got "be careful what you wish for" as a response. LOL. Hard to take these clowns seriously.
They complain about the Monoblocs on the 848 but the praise them on the GSXR...

"Like the Triumph and Ducati, the addition of Brembo monoblocs is a headlining upgrade. The Brembos exhibit immediate stopping power, which is authoritative without being grabby" from the GSXR review.

IDK are they different monoblocs or something...? or maybe just bias since its a new bike this year and they got some good money for advertising.
