    Will VW Scandal Force Sale of Ducati?
    14 SuperbikePlanet.com /
    FWIW: This is a possibility; however, Ducati is not an underperforming part of the VW empire so I would rate the likelihood as low. Ducati motorcycle sales are showing a real ROI under Audi ownership with growth potential potential as their footprint is expanded world wide. The current need of VW to come up with solutions speaks to the original reason for the purchase of the Italian firm. In addition to potential to grow sales the Italian motorcycle manufacturer and its subsidiaries were seen as having valuable engineering assets in small engine design and EMS technology. Both areas will be critical to developing a solution to VW’s problems. Operations such as SEAT and some of its other auto manufacturing brands in this segment in the over three hundred companies under VW umbrella are more likely candidates.


    BMW: Definitely A Strong Buy
    Due to the strong business model and the scandal with rival Volkswagen, the company's stock looks undervalued in light of growth expectations in China. Bayerische Motoren Werke AG is a well-known German company in the automotive manufacturing industry.
    2 Motorcycle News /
    FWIW: BMW may well be undervalue and a good thing to add to the transportation portion of a portfolio; however, the fallout from the VW scandal continues to roll out. The Roundel appears to have avoided the lure of cheating that VW fell for. Yet in the diesel trinity of emissions, milage and performance BMW appears to have chosen to emphasis performance while meeting standards at the expense of mileage. It is not set to take advantage of the market void formed by exiting VW buyers in Europe or the US. The impact on brand Germany and its various corporations remains to be tallied.

    Save your sheckles, if an auto stock is on your mind. Fiat-Chrysler will be offering an IPO of Ferrari stock. Approximately twenty percent of the Italian marque shares will be offered for sale. The Prancing horse has all the cache of the Roundel and more. The luxury market shows strong sales beyond those of other sectors. If you can get in the first year return should be solid and the chance for bragging rights add more value.

    Keep in mind my market analysis and five dollars will get you a large cup of coffee and a nice roll at the official Fly-Over-Land coffee shop.

    Phillip Island, like Mugello, is one of the tracks which any motorcycle racer worth their salt puts at the very top of their list of favorite tracks. And rightly so: swooping over gently undulating ground sitting atop cliffs overlooking a bay on the Bass Strait, it is perhaps the greatest of the natural race tracks. It has everything a race track should have: a collection of fast, sweeping corners

    Blame it on the Bass Strait. The weather, or perhaps more accurately, the weather, the climate and the environment, has a huge effect on the Phillip Island circuit. The weather, because the strong winds which blow in off the Strait brings regular dowsings of rain.

And the environment, because the sea breeze brings in salt, and the Antarctic ozone hole means UV levels are high, both of which have a corrosive effect on the circuit surface.

    Analysis: The impact of VW 'diesel-gate' on Renault's F1 future
    The majority of F1's carmakers have now been somewhat connected to the fallout from the 'diesel-gate' scandal which last month wiped around one-third of the value of the Volkswagen Group
    FWIW The VW scandal continues to ripple outward impacting other areas of CageWorld directly and indirectly. F1 has been hit hard by the scandal. Red Bull’s engine frustrations might have been solved by Audi until diesel fumes choked the deal before it hit the track. Now Renault may face problems on the street making their push to make Lotus competitive more expensive. For a variety of reasons, Ecclestone has never been a big fan of the current F1-Turbo. His current talk about returning to V-8s may be more about meeting competitive needs on track and in the EU investigators view than a true love of the sound of an F1-V8.

This could include such trick 1976 technology as boron fiber reinforced aluminum, or the 1950s discovery that dispersed aluminum oxide particles could strengthen aluminum at high temperatures and allow it to function for thousands of hours while hot—without strength loss.
