Sorry to be off topic but I see that they've altered the rules in WSBK to make things more affordable. More like to slow them down so that they can then go on to slow down the GP bikes.

The rule about maximum number of gear ratios is something that should have come in a long time ago, it's a simple, cost effective, method of controlling the ever spiralling and not needed top speeds.

I really hope that this is a step towards getting racing to be more about riders than the bikes.

Honda has not much choices, its sound DP & MM both they didn't like a first 2014 version.

The test might be just for marketing, or some data if any available ( made the last use of million prototype ).
Honda's engineers may already working on 2nd version after received information from their riders.

Nice to see Casey Stoner back.
Hope Honda have a bike ready for him.
That should put the cat among the pidgeons.

Hope all the riders are having a rest and all the broken bone have mended. Especially Jorge Lorenzo. Jorge is something else after two major spills and getting in the points still. What a brave guy.

Am glad Cal Crutchlow has got sorted and hope he can sort the Ducati out in time for the first race next season. I think he may be able to do something with that bike, because it needs a rider on it that fights hard. The only other rider I would have put on that bike is BAUTISTA. Because he has that type of riding style that would suit that bike.

Codger, putting mouths into gear before engaging brain is a common theme amongst many posters on these forums.
I think it's fair to say the majority of fans would like to see the end of intrusive electronics so we can get back to 'real' racing and of course it wouldn't be clever to have the premier class slower than the production based machinery in WSBK. I personally wouldn't care if that meant that all bikes were slower as a result, would you?
Sounds like you'd like it both ways without realising there are always consequences.

@RFS131

yeah, you right
your best ever is only best ever on best ever bikes
shame, but its true + it is impossible to give him special tyres now + its impossible to give him advantages in team, cause his cards are not strong anymore = he will newer more WCH because of this. Ducati showed his potencial, cause he is trullz not special, typical midpack (on the MotoG level), Barros, Katoh showed it in the past.
