They may not get a huge amount of air time on tv but by being out on track it makes it better for the actual spectators.

I think its a great idea that Honda should have more bikes on the grid for its home race. Its just a shame that yamaha and Suzuki couldnt have done the same

MotoGP is supposed to be the world's premier class of motorcycle racing. What a joke it is that these two guys will be riding. Forget about notions of supporting japan...if honda has had these bikes available they should've had riders on them all season supporting the class and not long past it japanese riders receiving long service gifts. MotoGP again looks amateur compared to F1
