Hot damn! That Ducati is a screamer! 16k+ RPM out of a 1000cc engine!

But what's up with the V2 being up there? Not like anyone's going to run a V2 anymore.

Lowest rev limit is the Kawasaki, Honda 1,000 RPM more????
You can thank Rea for that lol As long as he keeps winning, pretty soon they'll have a 10k limit for the ZX10 lol But don't worry, the Honda will still not win anything with that extra 1000 rpm.

I just hope those Ducatis won't explode at 16k rpm! lol

Had to go back to like 2010ish when the last time WSBK raced at Valencia just to see how his lap time compared to WSBK. Looks like he was slightly faster than the race lap record, and about 1 second off the all-time record there for WSBK (1:33.2 set by Ben Spies in 2009). Not bad for a stock bike and him just riding at a track day! But then again it is 11 years newer technology lol I'm sure if WSBK was to race there now we'd be seeing 1:31s or 1:30s.

I was just laughing about this earlier when I saw testing results posted on RRW lol But funny that Haslam is way farther up the order on the same bike.
I had the same reaction. One thing that crossed my mind is if Bautista had ever raced an inline 4? Everything I recall from MotoGP was a V engine and then the Ducati last year. Maybe he's having issues with the engine configuration change? Haslam does seem to be making it work reasonably well.
