Pity Yamaha couldn't give Dovi Factory assistance so he could steal points from the Repsol Hondas. The current Tech3 bike isn't going to get him anywhere in a hurry...

next season the tech 3 bikes r gonna start with the same spec as the factory teams or very near it with 2012 being the start of the 1000 , ':)

No point in giving honda a hard time . He has been given more than a fair shot at it with them and it didn't work out unfortunately . Nothing more to say really.

I think this is a very clever move by Dovi, if he does it, all the factory/semi factory bikes at the begining of the year will be very close, however, towards the mid/late season he would have been at least 4th in the pecking order at Honda by then I expect him to be giving Spies a very hard time for 2nd Yamaha. Also once he left the no1 Honda team he was never going to get back in. At Yamaha he has a possible career path to the No1 team. be interesting re the Red Bull/Monster Energy sponsor thing tho!

Good move by Dovi if that is the case.
Honda are a good team but they never really Thankfull to their riders, as with Yamaha they are always thankfull for hard work put in, even Colin Edwards once said Yamaha is a more friendly team to race for than Honda.
With abit of luck Dovi will bring good sponsors with him so full factory support could be part of the deal?
