MotoGP » Yamaha gives M1 technical presentation


@ slider: I have a degree in physics and what I say derives from this. I have no idea about what is published on gpone.com I've made a typical telemetry graph showing exactly what I mean. Preceed the following address with "Eichteeteepeedoubledot": //tinypic.com/r/2dwdoup/6 I presume cornering and braking traction to be the same for both bikes which is very close to reality.

MotoGP » Yamaha gives M1 technical presentation


"lap times were faster in 2012 due to the higher speed, although braking time was longer." This "although" shows little understanding of motorcycle and general physics. OF COURSE braking time will be longer and the braking point will need to be earlier: If top speed increases, you need to scrub-off more speed to enter the corner. By no means does this "longer braking time" mean that corner speed has necessarily lowered. In fact, supposing that both 800cc and 1000cc motorcycles enter at exactly the same speed the 1000cc will be going faster than the 800cc up to the braking point of the 800 even if it has hit the brakes a few meters earlier.

MotoGP » Can MotoGP ever crack the USA?


I'd agree with G. Irish. If MotoGP doesn't get shown on a large (and free) network with proper promotion then there's no chance it'll pass the "European weirdness" status it has been having for decades in the US. And of course, the difficulty in it is not finding a network but battling the lobbying by other competitive sports. Sports are huge money makers for everyone involved in the show and nobody wants some new "guy" just coming over and stealing away the audiences. After all, there's only so much sports a guy can watch during the weekend :)
