Wooohaaaa… so nobody else has been really looking at the news?

MotoGP News - MotoGP Aragon: Ducati confirms 'GP14.2' debut

crash.net said:
Ducati has confirmed that a substantially revised version of its Desmosedici MotoGP machine will debut at this weekend's Aragon round.

The changes - believed to include the chassis and engine - will be the biggest since the start of the season and a stepping stone towards new Ducati Corse general manager Gig Dall-Igna's full 2015 re-design, to be seen in testing at Sepang next February.

According to a Ducati statement, Andrea Dovizioso and 2015 factory team-mate Andrea Iannone (currently at Pramac) “were able to shakedown the 'evolution' version of their Desmosedici, called GP14.2, for the first time” during a private test at Mugello on Tuesday.

“The two Italian riders will continue to test the bike during the Aragón race weekend," the statement added.

The changes will therefore not be made available to Dovizioso's present team-mate Cal Crutchlow, who is leaving for LCR Honda at the end of the season.

Dovizioso is fifth in the world championship, with two podiums, and needs just two more points to match his entire 2013 tally.

Perhaps you should have read Freight's post.
Yea, but no mention of a new chassis and new motor!!! An updated bike could mean a software change or tank position, but the team are getting what appears to be a real big step in a different direction. To me, thats awfully exciting.

Nicky's been offered the keys to multiple superbikes of which we all know, he'd do great on. Yet, every time, something keeps him back. I'm certain Dorna has a hand in keeping him around all these years, helping him get a decent wage to stay.

It's really sad to see him on an uncompetitive bike, fighting for top 15's. If he doesn't do better next season on a faster bike, he'll probably be over it like Colin Edwards.
