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.

MotoGP » PICS: Waterfall tumble ends Crutchlow Q2 chances

mark.james.7374: The future looked bright for Cal last year, but I'm afraid it's not looking good for you now cal, once you've had a bad season like your having, the riders at the sharp end are racing even harder and faster than before when you managed to get a few podiums with the tec3 bike, but the worse is to come cal, the duc he's riding. lets face it, if your name is not CS you are wasting your time, its nearly wreaked so many racers carers riding that crap, it knocks your conference in which if you were to go to another manufacturer you'd still be slow, why" you'll still have the duc still in your mind with the problems it had, under steer, not stable under breaking, etc etc , plus it takes years to get back up to speed as well, just ask VR plus cal is no VR so me thinks your gp days are over mate, hope the money you made was worth it?
The Ducati hasn't wrecked Dovi's career.
