Yamaha has confirmed that its new chassis will be available for Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo at the forthcoming Assen MotoGP round.

After a positive first impression with the frame at the official Catalunya post-race test, the Movistar Yamaha riders returned for a further day of private testing on the Tuesday.

"The main task [for tomorrow] is to decide which chassis is better. If we conclude that the new frame is better, we might have it ready at the next round in Assen," team director Massimo Meregalli had explained.

LOL, if you speak of "anti-Rossi" posts then it only sounds like you had "contributed" only some slanderous message that nothing hat to do with the topic except for having the word "Rossi" and some offense next to it.

If that was the case, then it was supposed to be removed: it adds nothing and easily flames away off topic

Not in the slightest.

Rossi is back to where he were years ago, he got side tracked last year and should really have let it be,but hey we are seeing the fruits of his development work with Yamaha now.

He really is the Goat and hopefully finally WC 10 is on it's way.
