@ LanceTheHooliganAlbon This will be interesting. Biaggi complained about both the Yamaha and Honda. So much so that Honda told him to pi** off! I wonder if he'll be truthful about the Ducati? The problem Max faced with the Yamaha is that it was grossly under powered compared to the RC211V. The original engine was 942CC's. The problem Max faced at Honda was that the RC211V needed to be ridden more like a superbike than a 250 bike. Max wanted high corner speeds, while Hayden wanted SBK style point and shoot. This caused problems in the development as HRC was getting conflicted requests from the two factory riders. Max was offered a Ducati ride in 2003, but felt that the only way he could be competitive was on an RCV and turned it down.
