The bikes, last week.

The Ducati is in its track fairings (hence no markings). It's a 748R, which makes it a bit special. These are quite different bikes compared to the bog standard 748. The "R" has, amongst other things, Ohlins forks and shock, better brakes, lighter wheels, a slipper clutch, more power as a result of Formula 1 style shower injectors (which, frankly, are a pain in the arse on the road), larger throttle bodies, higher lift cams, bigger valves, a short ratio gearbox, and a different (and lighter) frame in order to accommodate a larger carbon fibre airbox.
