@Knowfukall

Your name is clearly correct as the picture to the left is a picture of Silva riding the FTR chassis, presumably taken during Friday Practice when he topped the timesheets.

@NateDog .. perhaps you should get off you high horse and read knowfukall post properly. He obviuosly realises what the bike is and who the rider is. He merely suggested it looks like a old kwak.

Perhaps for "the likes of people like you" he should have written, the Blusens bike resembles an old kwak and then those who struggle with these simple things wont be too quick to make themselves look an ar$e in public

no, he's just repeating an observation i also made post qatar. in addition i referenced the green wheels (which in that pic they don't have fitted).

re: "The Avintia rider switched from the traditional twin-spar aluminium FTR chassis to the Inmotec design at Jerez, which is a mix of carbon and aluminium."

good, they've been reading my blog... so when can we see it...?

I believe that Carbon fibre will become the frame of choice in the future.....good on them for experimenting......
There was a lot of frame experts on this forum with no idea of a concept called innovation
interestingly the Ducati is no different with a Aluminium frame

So once more it looks like Stoner was Right I suspect the only real draw back with carbon Fibre is the lead in time untill it cures so fast changes cannot happen...........
