MotoGP » ‘Thumb brake’ appears on final day of Honda test

grantrd: The nsr 500 made between 190-200 horsepower towards the end... No traction control and 2 stroke power delivery... Mick doohan was genius with that bike.... The previous generation 990's didn't make much less power than today and they didn't have traction control....
Just for comparative purposes, Doohan's NSR500 of 1998 delivered 180 bhp at 12000 rpm with a quoted top speed of 190 mph. In the last year of 990, the Honda RC211V delivered 250 bhp at 16,500 rpm.

MotoGP » Marquez, Pedrosa talk 2015 Honda

therealDave: Ducati = New engine November 2014 Yamaha = New engine and pipes June 2014 Honda = New bike July 2014 Game, Set and Match for 2015 = Honda
Not necessarily. In previous years Ducati has often been the first to test next year's bike and look where that has got them. Both the Honda and Yamaha are essentially evolutions of the current model. The Ducati will truly be a new bike radically different to the GP14. Will it prove to be a big step forward or a dog? Time will tell.

MotoGP » Hernandez: I want to stay here

No way will Dovi go to Suzuki. The Suzuki in all tests has proven to be slower than the current Ducati. Meanwhile Ducati will have a brand new (& hopefully much improved) bike for 2015 reflecting Gigi's ideas. So what's the choice? An Italian to stay as a Factory rider for an Italian team with the chance of something potentially much better coming and a big pay rise? Or jump to an already inferior machine from a less than fully committed factory that has jumped in and out of MotoGP with their last real success way back in Kenny Roberts Jnr days? Hmmmm. Hard choice to make. Not.

MotoGP » Redding 3.5s from Bautista

Being on the customer Honda has been a blessing in disguise for Scott. The customer Honda's are virtually a class apart and SR has usually been leading that group, irrespective of whether Hayden has been over-using his wrist. That has been noticed, as has his progression without frequent classes, within an environment that is far less pressured than if he had a better bike in a more prominent team. One solid learning year before making a step up will benefit Scott in the long run.

MotoGP » Iannone: Best MotoGP finish

Tomco: Another great ride but please dont let him go to Ducati. What a waste. Give him Bradl or Bautistas bike or even a Tech3.
Jeez, what are you talking about??? Don't let him go to Ducati? He is already effectively with Ducati! He has the same spec GP14 that Dovi & Cal has. If there is one person who could make the switch to the factory Ducati team & do well (or at least not badly) then it is Iannone.

MotoGP » PICS: Waterfall tumble ends Crutchlow Q2 chances

cfsteezy: Its ironic that ducatis road going bikes are known for great handling and being underpowered, but their GP bike cant handle and has loads of power. Lol
The Ducati 1199 Panigale road bike develops 195 bhp at 10,750 rpm, and 98.1 lb ft torque at 9000 rpm. With a kerb weight of 188 kg it has the highest power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios of any production motorcycle. Motorcycle Consumer News ranked the 2012 Panigale S with the best rear wheel horsepower to wet weight ratio of any bike the magazine had ever tested, as well as the 5th highest rear wheel horsepower, and the 10th highest top speed. Don't post when you just don't know what you are talking about.
