Wow, so he'll race the entire 2012 season on the old bike? I'm surprised Ducati and Checa wouldn't prefer to run the 1199 not only to help sell the new bike but also for the extra power it has. With WSBK increasing the weight requirement for the twins in 2012 you would think the 1199 would be the clear choice unless Checa is simply more comfortable on the old machine.
