Ducati Panigale V4R

Bautista is the fastest Ducati rider. I kind of expected that, but Davies is much slower than I expected.
What does it mean? The new Ducati needs lots of development? If true, then Bautista may become real threat when Ducati get their ducks in a row.

its only testing, both riders were probably trying to figure different setting out, until the first round at Philip Island there is no way to know what the team is going for set up wise.

Davies is still recovering from injury. Give him time.

True.

As a matter of fact I didn't like this twin vs. four at all. Looking forward to see what Ducati can do now with same rules applied.

Alright, what is it. Ducati extremely well suited for Phillip Island or Bautista is becoming a major power in WSBK?

They have almost 2,000rpm more than the Kawis. Way faster down the chute!

When Ducati entered the MotoGP they caught everybody pants down, their horsepower was unprecedented at the time. Ducati literally disappeared in straights. Didn't mean the bike was the fastest around the circuit.

His race pace is still questionable.

It's well known Bautista likes to sample the gravel traps.
