Ill believe it when I see if for real -

Im sure this is like what the big H has always done, presented a really great looking bike and the real one is what it looked like, but, doesnt have the specs of the prototype - if this is going to be the bike, expect it to be 100 lbs heavier and restricted to like 150 hp -

The RC51 wasn't a Ducati killer? Raced 3 years, won 3 of the three WSB crowns, Suzuka, Le Mans, AMA, and a few other odds and ends?

I'd be pretty sure that bike was all about Ducati's poor me response to the WSB homologation regs and no more.
