"Normally the tech is sanatized for the road, this sounds like it wont be, probably be lighter, twichier, more nimble then your 'average' street bike, or to put it another way, closer to a 'real' race bike."

So a honda copy of the D16 road bike?

Im a big Pedrosa fan, and I would honestly be quite happy if he didnt win this year. As long as he keeps up the fight, and doesnt concede until the math says otherwise. Im sure being back to top Honda (yes Stoner was eliminated by one crash, at a dubious at best track), will improve his mind set for next year.

If im recalling this will be his only season in the top class, without either pre-season or in-season (form droping) injuries.

@ Randy

Your brain should be seriously examined !!

Then how do you explain Rossi's solid performance?? Holding back Bradle, Dovi and cal riding much more competitive bikes??? How do you explain the gap to the winner? The 7th fastest of the day stepped on the second step of podium, that speaks volumes !!

i bought an old classic car a few years ago and when driving it home found car had a major braking problem,when i braked hard car would pull badly to the left but when brake was released the car pulled to the right for a few miles and was then ok until the brake was used again.this fault was traced to the right hand front brake line (rubber)breaking up internally allowing fluid past only under high pressure and then only slowly allowing that pressure off,hence the left/ right pull on steering.im not suggesting honda had old rubber brake lines but it could be a manufacturing fault in a b/line.if brake pressure is read at cylinder it would still read normal.

They're building a new supersports bike? No. He says some engineers have got together to begin development of such a bike. In other words it's a long way off if it happens at all. And referencing the RC30 can mean only one thing. That it will be a prohibitively expensive limited edition that will be of absolutely no relevance to normal riders.

In all that time I think I've seen an RC30 on the road under normal circumstances just once. Hardly relevant is it?

In all probability the only reason they are even thinking about it is that they are finally admitting that the fartblood just isn't good enough. When was the last time they won a WSB championship?
