If im correct sbk was here in 2008. And troy was riding for duc. that bike was only 0.5 sec slower then the 800.000.- rcv1000r !!! hahahahaha
Honda is screwing the buyers bigtime!! that rcv could be sold easy for 150.000.- and not a penny more! 2008 vs 2014 only 0.5 sec

TedG: Could it be that as they take away the electronic intervention the riders take over and become faster????


There could be some logic in this.

They have designed and built computers specifically designed to win at chess...and they still lose to a very good human player.

Who says that every single rider is worse without rider aids... I'd put money on Rossi/Doohan/Rainey/Lawson/Schwanz etc agreeing with that statement.

I notice Hayden was not interviewed this time, hehe, they picked Aoyama this time, must be part of the new deal with Dorna and Honda not to air comments from Hayden and the miserable RCV1000R, and make a new class "4" for the RCV for slow, underpowered, grid fillers.

Beating all the factory class, 1,5 sec faster and out perform his team mate in every race and sesion, Alex must be a very talented super fast driver who deserve a ride in a top
factory class

great ride from Aleix, I don't think VR and MM could do better with those bike, this result coming from talent not bike, I wish I could see Aleix as another talented rider after Casey gone which not only depend on good bike

Man this is why I hate the politics of gp. While I don't really like Marco Melandri however just like Aleix he never did anything with the Ducati like Aleix but now he has a Yamaha under him look at him now.

To many riders are wasting there careers in GP on second, third, fourth etc tier machinery.

Why is PBM even bothering with GP they should invest their money elsewhere they aren't even in an uphill battle Ducati is in an uphill battle, PBM is just digging a bigger and bigger hole by remaining in GP.

Nothing to read in to here dirty track and tier 2 bikes.
