MotoGP » PIC: Hernandez makes 'Open' class Ducati debut

Just a thought... The Open class is designed to get private teams closer to the factory teams and create better racing...but if that privateer team is already a factory team, ok a junior factory team, then what's to stop them tweaking engines to get more power and torque lower down the revs and let the electronics do the rest, as much as possible anyway and that way placate the rev ceiling on any control ECU...remember the claiming rules are now gone and there's no chance of a manufacturer losing their technology for 20K Euro...they've loads of engines to play with and they might even throw a world champion on such a private bike ?

MotoGP » Martin Raines (MotoGP stats) - Q&A

Raines always makes sense to me, thanks for a great article ! Anyone that takes the trouble to dismiss Rossi's talents, and achievements, is just plain delusional...these are the people that find fault with anything and anyone, they spew out all manner of nonsense to justify their sentiments, but say it simply because they get the desired reaction in forum such as this...there is a 'technical' term for this, and there's really not a lot else you can say...

MotoGP » Randy de Puniet to test with PBM

I wish you lot would give the TEAM a break, why can't you see beyond 'big mouth himself' that they are far more than Paul Bird alone, and certainly worthy of supporting...this British bike is worth developing, and all the more so with some 'serious' Aprilia engine input. If they can get their electronics sorted, and achieve some serious power output, this bike could win Open class races next season...

MotoGP » Honda presents 2014 Production Racer

Personally I just can't see this '0.3secs slower' being a true figure compared to full factory. The electronics keep these bikes completely on song, they are THE deciding factor presently...Repsol has two HRC electronics guru' that work solely on their bikes. The LCR outfit has Bradl, on a full Honda Japan contract, shares another HRC electronics chap with the 'apparent' sat spec bike on Bautista's Gresini...all I can think is that Dorna's spec Magnetti ECU must be quite a piece of kit if it can keep the production racer within such a close proximity to that offered by the factory. Don't forget the extra four litres, they can wind on the power a little but they're still down on power as Stoner noted. It would be amazing if Honda offered a true 'over the counter machine' that could compete at the front, but we all know that Honda's calculation will be precise in all manner of ways...why would Gresini Honda pay multiples of Euro's to race a sat spec bike compared to the production bik
