MotoGP » Why was the Honda RCV1000R short on fuel?


When Honda decided to build a fuel tank substantially below the 24 litre limit for its new RCV1000R, they obviously felt confident it could finish a race at maximum power.

Dear strange little person (aka kenluckykid69),

Honda controls the bikes until the two-year period is up. Only then do the teams own the bikes. No modifications allowed without Honda's permission except brakes and suspension.

Reported in Sport Rider Magazine, on MotoMatters.com, Dennis Noyes' Twitter, etc., etc.
