The 1000cc sports bike class has ripped in two and there are now two
distinct camps. In the 'extreme' corner there's the super-powerful,
electronically-enhanced superbikes, like the Aprilia RSV4, BMW S1000RR,
Ducati Panigale and Kawasaki ZX-10R. Over in the other is the new
Fireblade, GSX-R1000 and R1.

So can one of the most exciting, talked-about motorcycles this year - the
Ducati Panigale - reignite our passion for all things very fast?
Ducati certainly hope so and have thrown the kitchen sink at the new

Rossi, Hayden and a Ducati MotoGP bike on snow
Valentino Rossi ended Ducati's 2012 MotoGP launch in unique style last week
by giving injured team-mate Nicky Hayden a pillion ride on a two-seater
Desmosedici on the snow!
The Italian used a Desmosedici with spiked tyres for the special ride as
the Ducati launch in the Madonna di Campiglio ski resort reached its
conclusion last week.

Of the four days of track action, Saturday's Drag Race by Tudor is sure to
go down in WDW history as one of the most exciting and close-fought
competitions yet. Valentino Rossi, Nicky Hayden, Troy Bayliss, Carlos
Checa, Jakub Smrz, Sylvain Guintoli, Niccolò Canepa and Lorenzo Zanetti
all enjoyed some friendly, but fierce competition on the drag-strip along
the Misano start straight. The early elimination stages of the competition
saw Ducatisti favourites Valentino Rossi and Troy Bayliss go through to the
exclusive final show-down in front of a huge WDW evening crowd. Bayliss got
the best launch from his Diavel and tripped the timing lights at 6.306
seconds to win the magnificent Drag Race by Tudor by just 0.023 of a second
ahead of Rossi with Hayden third and Checa fourth.
