MotoGP2010 - Unregistered

I don't know how up to date this information is but on Wiki about Ivan Silva as a test rider for Ducati MotoGP, "he finished last in every practice session and in qualifying, despite Casey Stoner taking pole on identical equipment". I know he did well on a ZX10R in the Spanish 1000cc Formula Extreme last season but I don't see how he's gonna catch the factory leaders let alone even stick with Tech3 and Gresini. Even Hayden on a factory Duc only finished 13th in the championship. But that's what development is all about I suppose... for the future... when the bikes change to 1000cc again. It's a bad time to start development on a 800cc GP bike. But as a fan, the more the marrier.

If you pay monkeys you earn peanuts.
I sense Ilmor all over again, which will be a shame as we need a half desent grid, that was why I started to follow WSBK more as they have the numbers and it is close racing.
Just look what a joke F1 is.
Moto2 looks like being the class to watch and maybe start a Moto GP team in.

Any new project in motogp is worthy of support these days....I look forward to seeing their kit up a little closer. It does have a look of the KR212V, yes.
The rider is going to be primarily developmental and they've worked with Silva for some time, nothing wrong there IMO. Anyone seens any fotos of the engine ??

"Did not know Arlen Ness had anything to do with MotoGP"

They make his leathers, that's all. Troy Baylis was sponsored by Arlen Ness too.

Great to see another manufacturer come on board. Hope they fare better than Ilmor!

Pretty sweet-looking unit, that Immotec! The video is shot in such a way that really reminds me how cool modern sportbikes are - just a surface-to-surface missile, really, that a person can cling on to and control with unreal precision. I always appreciate vids or photos that remind me of this perspective.

The bike actually reminds me of the Kawasaki MotoGP bike that Melandri rode last year, though maybe it's just the black paint job talking.
