Re: New owners

Been thinking with Audi, will the unreliability of Ducati maybe ironed out, Im also wondering if their engineers will be able to iron out Rossi's problems?

Re: New owners

reliability to street going bikes, perhaps. probably not without sacking everyone.

I don't think we'll see anything for a couple of years, but who knows, maybe they'll jump right into it.

Re: New owners

Audi=Cool styling, good power ratings, Quattro....Not so great reliability
Ducati=Cool styling, god power, torque, and handling, V twin...Not so great reliability
Not much of a difference, probably will not notice change.
