I think the winglets are cool, but a lot of guys don’t really know where they come from. In Moto GP, where electronics are very important, and not wheelee-ing over an inch or two is very important for rear grip and acceleration, only the factory teams, like Honda, Yamaha, etc., could afford to develop such finely tuned electronics to keep the front wheel at just the right height. So, the big teams started to get an advantage, too much of an advantage, so they made everyone start using “dumber“ electronics. Well, now Everyone needed a solution to over-wheeleeing. Hence the development of spoilers, wings, and winglets. So in a way, its a step back, but its fun to have your bike look like what you see on TV, so we got them. This might not be the whole story, but it’s the gist of it.If it really looks like the red photoshop version it might be the first Ducati since 2007 that I would love to own.
And I love winglets. I’m trying to find some for my Ninja400.

Not buying your view of the "story" at all.So in a way, its a step back, but its fun to have your bike look like what you see on TV, so we got them. This might not be the whole story, but it’s the gist of it.
Here, read this. It’s about 1/2 of the story. In essence there are no taylor made IMU’s for 2019. It was the electronics ban before this one that made it necessary to start putting wings on the bikes.Not buying your view of the "story" at all.
Aplilia had wheelie control since 2011? And was working great, all these imu systems get better with each generation. Tech goes forward never in reverse.
In motogp they put every team with the same tech for better competition.
The wings on the sf are mostly aesthetics, nothing to avoid flipping the bike.
Waiting for price tag (aka heart attack).
