I agree, the electronics kill the sport, worked wonders when they got rid of stuff like traction control and all the aero on F1 cars.

Hopefully they'll do the same for Moto GP, go back to basics where it's all rider skills. Riders like Marq wouldn't be able to ride how they do and ride fast, he's only getting away with it because of electronics. Riders like Rossi have learnt how to ride without them and have had to adapt to them as the years have gone on.

You noob Podster.. Electronics is somethingh that is inevitable at Motogp, where the power is so big that the only way of letting riders exploring tha maximan of the bike they need electronics.. is one subject that is very importante to manufacters.. Motogp riders are not clowns they have one job that it can be made has a show but they are developing importante parts for the road for safety... the know how from Motogp is very importante.. but the true is that the show is not so espectacular, in F1 they invented the KERS to creat more chances off a fight.. here they can t do that..lol

He may well be right about the excitement bit but it definitely won't help him!
He may be able to do a fancy little slide when it doesn't count but he's ridden his entire yamaha career on a bike that likes to keep its wheels in line for the best results.
He's relied heavily on maximum electronics to help yamaha develop the bike and the proof is in the pudding when you watch any M1.
A 240bhp motorcycle that rarely spins the rear tyre? Give me a break, no wonder he had no chance on the ducati.
