Ahh its all bullshit. The oil lobbyists always win, thats why we're driving gasoline vehicles instead of riding in trolly cars to work and using electric personal transports for picking up groceries.

No worries, we'll still be suffering with 10% ethanol in our fuels forever and no more.

I do not think there *ARE* any local stations that have gas without ethanol here. I have only seen them once you get well out of the cities and suburbs in this state.

Yep thats right, they are way off the beaten path.

Nobody is gonna make a vehicle that doesn't work with standard fuel, no way.

Ducati's are no different then any other motorcycle. So either they all go away (and my antique car as well) or the new standard doesn't stick… I have a feeling the latter will be the answer.

This isn't about oil money, rather corn money. Ethanol factories produce more greenhouse gasses than any refineries. BUT, our good ole' boys in the beltway have corn payoffs to the farms to produce limits, which go to the refineries, via subsidies.

Meanwhile, back in the City, the Beltway boys have their free money from the Federal Reserve(in the form of QE infinity) placed in the stock market under the corn commodities. Watching it go up and laughing at us for being stupid, thinking it's a "save the planet" issue.

I think that's part of the reason for it's increased weight relative to the 1199. Steel tank. Sure stops it from expanding though!
There's a few things, the steel tank, the lack of magnesium parts and the swingarm. According to Gaspari (Sportsbike project manager), the DSSA is .9kg heavier.
