Ducati 750 F1: "DUCATI 750 F1

I’m a sucker for the endurance racer look, especially if twin headlamps are involved. And this is one of the best examples I’ve seen for a long time. It’s owned by Gregory Rathe, and there’s an interesting history behind it. In 1985, Ducati made a replica of its Pantah-based TT racers called the 750 F1. Around 1,500 were made, and won acclaim for their streamlined design and exceptional handling."

La classifica delle 10 moto elettriche migliori al mondo

Le 10 moto elettriche migliori al mondo

The best 10 electric bikes in the world.

Mentre ancora in Italia si perde tempo per mettere in regola tutte le infrastrutture necessarie all’avvento dei mezzi elettrici nelle nostre strade, nel mondo continua ad allargarsi la produzione di moto elettriche. Molte sono state prodotte in casa, in un piccolo garage con pochi attrezzi. Altre invece sono passate attraverso un’importante catena di montaggio.

Quella che vi proponiamo oggi è una classifica, stilata da GreenMe, delle 10 moto elettriche migliori prodotte finora in tutto il mondo. Si parte dalla più esclusiva, la Neiman Marcus Mission One, un gioiello da 75′000$, utilizzabile solo in pista e con una velocità di oltre 240 km/h e un’autonomia di 250km. La seconda è la più veloce finora, la Killa Cycle, prodotta in Colorado da una ragazza appassionata, che ha raggiunto la velocità di 285 km/h.

MotoGP News - Stoner and Dovizioso score Honda one-two at Le Mans

Casey Stoner (Repsol Honda RC212V) scored his second MotoGP victory on a Honda in today’s French Grand Prix to move into second place in the World Championship point standings. Team-mate Andrea Dovizioso (Repsol Honda RC212V) scored a fine second-place finish to secure a brilliant one-two for Repsol Honda.

But what could have been a perfect day for the team was spoiled by a mid-race incident, which saw the luckless Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda RC212V) crash and break a collarbone after tangling with Marco Simoncelli (San Carlo Honda Gresini RC212V). Simoncelli was subsequently punished with a ride-through penalty that demoted him from second place to fifth.

Rossi - Stoner Collision

by Clykins021on April 6th, 2011 at 4:54 pm

Top level sport needs drama and that is exactly what we got on the eighth lap of the Spanish Grand Prix. For the first time in Rossi’s brief Ducati career, it seemed the bike was actually working to his liking. A podium or even a victory seemed possible, a bet that no one in the paddock would have taken after Saturday’s qualifying practice. As he went down the pit straight, Rossi tried to brake as late as possible, something that had never seemed too difficult for him while riding his ex-lover, the Yamaha M1. The GP11 Ducati, however, is not that smooth, gentle Yamaha and even in the hands of a nine-time world champion the front end folded going into turn one. What happened after that will be talked about for days, months and years to come.

Qatar

You know you've got up too early when you realise midway through the morning that your underpants are on back to front and inside out.

The first leg of my journey to Qatar for the first round of the MotoGP season was uncomfortable but not unusual.

After 10 full seasons of covering the sport, I have yet to learn to prepare my suitcase any sooner than bedtime on the eve of departure, or get up any earlier than 10 minutes before the taxi is set to beep its horn, which, in this case, was 5am.

But one thing is significantly different for me this year. This time I will be anchoring the BBC's MotoGP coverage.
