Hodgson says his mates within the factory say it’s comfortably the fastest road bike Ducati have had round Mugello.

Don't think so.

Apparently with the akra system fitted you get an extra 12hp over the standard bike

226 is bonkers.

That's alot in a car. In a sub 200kg bike it's mental.

Still glad they make it though. Mental is good imo.
