Advantage in SBK...?

For decades I've read and heard that Ducati "basically" owns the World Superbike SBK series - this mainly coming from whiners that hate seeing there precious in-line 4's lose. But anyway. Its said that Ducati bends and changes the rules to make there bikes more competitive - any validity to this claim or where this notion comes from ?


If counting victories and Championships....we technically DO own the word "SUPERBIKE".

Ducati is to Superbike or GP like Ferrari is to F1. They are the longest continuously participating manufacturers in their perspective fields. The only time I can think of the rules "bending" to Ducati was when they allowed the Twins to go to 1200cc to accommodate the lack of revs. Ducati is also innovative; people screaming foul on the tire cooler just aren't forward thinking and are now following those who created it. That's their problem, not Ducatis. Upset that a manufacturer, who produces 40-50k units/year is doing so well against those manufacturing millions is literally a David and Goliath competition.

Thank you for that beautiful explanation - I will but it to memory.
