  2. I wonder how long it will be before we see a similar thing in bikes that
    there is in cars, with only 3 or 4 actual companies marketing heaps of
    different brands (all of which were once actual companies in their own
    right)? (Think General Motors.)

    Isn't ducati part of an american company or partly american owned?

  4. Already happening

    Yamaha is part owned by Toyota

    Kawasaki and Suzuki are sleeping together

    The Italians now seem to be all getting together just to compete on a
    stronger footing

    Yup, it was wholly owned by TPG (?Texas Pacific Group IIRC, US anyway)
    who bought it off Cagiva, and then floated about umm 4 years ago ? which
    obviously diluted their holding.
