  • Ducati GP16 dual clutch reservoirs?

    Just been watching FP1 and noticed on Dovi's bike he has what appears to be two clutch reservoirs. He still has the brake one with a sock over it on the right bar. Anyone know why you'd need 2 for the clutch?

    It'd be for his thumb rear brake me thinks!

      It's extra hydraulic fluid, in case he's caught mid corner by a clutch-low.

            Apparently it is to spray oil behind you ,Mark Marquez crashed yesterday in Le Mans He was behind the Ducati.
            Ducati is denying this and saying it is for chain lubrication.
            Do it

                Didn't see anything regarding a thumb brake in the link, did find this vv though regarding another discussion

                CW: In 2016, ABS will be obligatory on all bikes sold in the European market. ABS is prohibited in Formula 1 and MotoGP. What is your opinion of ABS in racing?

                L.B.: ABS is perfect for the street rider, but in racing, it should be the rider who controls. Probably ABS would be safer, but racing is also a test of the rider, and so for the show, I don’t think ABS would be good.
