MotoGP » Full Moto3 technical regulations announced


Goodbye two strokes thanks for all the good times. Easter 1982 at Mount Panorama. walking up from frogs hollow the air redolent of Castrol R 2 stroke oil, the smell of Grand Prix motorcycle racing. @ A B I must agree, RIP two-strokes. It's been fun, we'll miss you. At the start of a race, in the boring middle stages and at the checkered flag we WILL remember them. Because we love them. Ago winning the first ever 500cc title on a blue smoke. Willing & Hansford dicing around Bathurst in an Australian Gp. Dani Pedrosa, Stoner & Lorenzo on 250s. Rossi on an Aprilia 125 around Suzuka death circuit. Ronnie Toombs on that Kawasaki H2R even 1996 at eastern creek. Ah two strokes.

MotoGP » Sixth fastest Hayden has 'fun' on Motegi day one


@ cheetah they cannot pull the front wheel back to steepen the rake because it will hit the front of the engine/radiator. there is not enough space. because the 90 degree vee four donk is bigger than all the other motors in MotoGp. the distance between the front of the engine to the swing arm pivot is the limiting factor I think. As Aussiebum posted with the swing arm pivoting in the engine cases it is also extremely difficult to change the pivot point/angle of the swing arm.Limits on engine use also complicate matters.
