of course its not the only factor, but people who buy this bike is for the prestige factor and riding around on a WC branded bike just pumps up thier egos even more.




exactly too much ego and no personality but then what do i know i drive a honda and a husaberg [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/unsure.gif[/img]

blah blah blah


So none of this at all was down to the 1098? Which had been announced way before Stoner came along? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Chief Executive Gabriele Del Torchio said the motorcycle maker's brand stood to benefit from Stoner's recent victories. Stoner won his 10th race of the year in Malaysia on Sunday. - nuff said

lets face it anyone who buys a sportsbike for thier every day riding has a big ego...

i owned r1 and gsxrs, but couldnt ever afford the ducati. performance wise 99% of riders will not even get 90% of the performance out of the r1's anyway

look at the share price from march till now, it lines up with stoners championship points.

people dont buy ducati because they are the fastest, but because they are prestigious and the guy next door with his r1 wants what he's got.

I know you more than anyone would love to give Stoner the credit for this but the waiting lists in the shops tell a different storry. It was sold more 1098s this april than 999s the whole last year. That was before anyone guessed where Stoner were going. Raise of income is a result of (ramped up) production, not sales. Much of the sales were contracted allmost before the seson started.
After that I'm sure Stoner did his small contribution, but not even you are actually comparing a GP7 with a 1098?

Well gee if Ducati have got it wrong then and are deluded in thinking Stoner is the main reason ..... shouldn't you guys be sending emails off to them to tell them!! ... I mean your combined finacial "savy" should surely show them that there research findings that "Stoner has earned them" were in fact wrong!!! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/blink.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/blink.gif[/img]

Especially you italian guys ... I mean theres national pride at stake here!! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ohmy.gif[/img] 1

When winners win ... it sells bikes!! .... and it translates into huge mounts of cash into a company .... its what happens ...

Hayden ..... sold bikes
Doohan .... sold bikes
Creville .....sold bikes
KRJr ........... sold bikes
Rossi .......... sold bikes

Stoner may not be selling a bike to those who don't like him ..... but the figures show ...... lots are buying .... [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif[/img]

I don't think its "win on sunday sell on monday!" situation here. If that was the case, 999's would have been a hit. I also don't really believe Stoner has as much to do with it. It all because of the 1098.
I'll take mine in black, please! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/cool2.gif[/img]


Yes indeed my friend....

The <u>9 months</u> profit. Soars....
Let's not forget that N.America is the largest market for Ducati and Motogp in North America is at the bottom of the list as far as sports fans. So the increase in sales cannot be attributed all to Stoner's success.


The increase is indeed due to the beautiful 1098. This is the bike that the 999 should have been... but all well better late than never...

Also if you pay any attention to commercials you will have noticed that the Ducati has been subliminally planted everywhere in Movies, Chevy commercials, TV spots.... you name it.

The beast from Bologna has been a giant on the race grid and a helluva marketing machine as well... let's give credit where it is fully due....


(okay... I am an engineer and a marketing man thus I notice these things.. now I step down from the soap box and gracefully exits)

Go Big Red Duke.....

How about the Ducati RR too, thats a strange one.. .... wonder if they filled orders on those .... that must boost the profit a bit ..... especially since they aren't even built yet !! its all profit on the books isn't it? ... till they start paying for the goods to build them [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]
