I wish morbidelli was on any other bike.... I'm a Honda fan through and through (have been for over 20 years) but the satellite hondas are never where they need to be. When was the last time we seen a top six satellite honda , minis Cal because he is pretty much on a factory bike. Alvaro Bautista maybe? I believe he was a regular top 6 guy in 2013. Since then.... The results have been terrible and in my opinion that bike has hurt the young carrers of guys like Jack Miller and Tito Rabat. Not to mention the debacle  called the open class Honda. The RC213V-RS.... I bet it took every ounce of Nicky's professionalism to not publixy bash that bike every weekend. 

I've said the same thing but MM's fanboyz seem to think all Hondas are the same as MM's which is not the case. Also it's a bike developed for MM it's not a neutral bike like the Ducati. I wished Morbidelli had choosen the Pramac team with the 18 bike. To beat MM on a Honda will be like beating Real Madrid at their turf with their own president as referee.

Almost a new year yet still the same brainless, boneheaded, Italian hating comments! Hey SENNAFTW you should just get a job for yourself or a hobby, because you know nothing about motorcycle racing. 

What they said is correct, Imo Franco is moving to a Honda that is used to test new parts for Repsol Honda team nothing more.

MM forced Honda to drop CS because CS was faster than him. CS could ride anything, he won on the worst Ducati ever! Imagine putting CS on MMs or DPs Honda! Wow!! Nobody would see which way he went! MM can win on the best bike, just like Moto 2, which we saw his teammate being abandoned much like DP is now. 

MM didn't win shit on a KTM, he had to robb the championship winning Derbi from a year previous to win anything! So to all the MM fan boys! MM is a great rider but far from amazing, having the best bike makes the difference. 

If MM believed what the fanboys believe! MM would have wins on a Ducati or Suzuki or something by now, plus he never won on a Satellite bike either. Put MM on JMs Honda of last season and he wouldn't finish a race!! Lol!

I think FM has tons of talent, and I hope to see him on the podium this year.
