MotoGP » LAST CHANCE: VOTE for your MotoGP Star of the Year!


It sucks giving the back of field guys a low rating but for star of MotoGP I do not know if they should get a 10.....CERTAINLY the deserve a 10 for effort... Perfect example is Hector Barbera... gets a Ducati and he is a top 10 performer...not sure if he made any points earlier in the year or not but shows he has riding ability certainly beyond the bike he was on...he also made those end results on a TRUE OPEN Ducati (ECU et al)...on a bike he got in the last 5 races or so... no real prior testing etc etc... I know he used to ride a Ducati but the last one he rode (2011 or 2012) and this 2014 model have little in common besides the messed up front end.....

Insidejob: Marc, best of factory riders. Dovi, best Ducati Open factory rider. Pol best satellite. Aleix, best open non-factory. Stefan, best satellite Honda. Andrea, best satellite open Ducati. Scott, best customer Honda open. So 10 points each.
I clicked disagree by accident....anyway fair assessment but how did you rate JL or DP or even some of the back field guys who NEVER had the package to do anymore than they did but rode their butts off!!

Think MM deserves a 10 as I believe he was the difference on the Honda and Dani is more like a 6 this season considering he is on the Honda and all the other customer Hondas were nowhere... Rossi gets a 10 because of his resurgence and hunger. I actually will give Lorenzo an 8 - because that was one hell of a comeback from a horrible start to the year.. probably deserves a 10 but many will compare it to his previous years and this was his worst (in that perspective) Everyone else will be below this because although Dovi (an 8) was a big standout I am not quite sure given the OPEN concessions on a factory bike?

MotoGP » Ducati GP15 set for Sepang II debut?


NineTimes: One must be as dumb as a bucket of hair not to see the FACT that Honda always has everything in their own favour.
You mean like 2004-2005 and between 2006 and 2011 when they never won a title??? and Yamaha won everything? and Rossi proved them wrong that it was the rider not just the machine? YEAH...I do see what you mean....2004-20012...(if u like u can use 2013 and 2014 as well) and tell me who has the most world titles!!) Yamaha - 6 World titles Honda - 2 World titles Ducati - 1 World title All in favor of HONDA!! and Ducati is the KING!!!!!!!! and those loser Yamahas... I am with you brother!!!!! in the opposite FACT universe!!!

MotoGP » Ducati GP15 set for Sepang II debut?


Agreed with Tetley...Ducati need to take the time they need not be pressured into an early release than they are ready for.... RE: Honda write the rules(repsol or HRC...whichever)..." This statement is too funny.... because I would do the same thing...you know! Go 5 years without a title and make sure the competitor Yamaha win all the titles and glory and also have my defected rider win on a competitor machine to prove me wrong....JUST to PROVE that I write the rules in my favor!!!!!! then borrow/pay top dollar for a Ducati rider to HELP ME because I cannot win the title with just ANY OL' Rider!!!! That must be the biggest reverse psychological ploy in history!!! because people on here are 1,000,000% sure Honda writes the rules!! Sensibly it would just be easier to say that as the biggest manufacturer who supports the sport the most in every way...they have some influence or weight but the ultimate decisions lie with all the voting members of the MSMA!!!

MotoGP » Nakamoto wants greater usability from 2015 Honda


VKal: the factory/satellite Honda riders didn't complain about this during 2014 season. Why tell us this now? Didn't hear MM complaining... did anyone hear this? MM only complained about the 2015 bike after Valencia test. MM has mentioned on several post race interview that the bike was great/good and hardly blames the bike when he loses. the Yamaha guys say Honda is better and now the Honda (not MM) says Yamaha is more 'ridable'. So all those arguments we had about how 'good and smart' the Honda bike is throughout the year has become invalid.
No one complained about "ridability' of the Honda...that is not what this topic is about... its about "usability" i.e. extracting that last needed tenth or 2 tenths... Nakamoto basically says it is very difficult to extract this if you are not the factory team and it requires a very complicated process whereas the Yamahas can tap into this easier even the Sat bikes...not the same for Sat Honda....

MotoGP » Nakamoto wants greater usability from 2015 Honda


The topic also suggest from Nakamoto's view that may explain why Yamahas dominated the top 10... basically 5 Yamahas in the top 10 and Honda and Ducati wrestling/sharing the remaining 5. With Ducati taking most of those once Crutchlow got up to speed at the end of year and only Bradl representing in the lower half of the top 10 for Honda...Bautista started being 11-14th place more often.... The topic is usability ... milking the remaining performance, not how rideable the bike was, both bikes are very ridable but internally it seems (what a surprise!) Nakamoto knows more than we do!! and says the bike is not user friendly like the Yamaha...he did not say it wasn't faster!! or it has a major problem!! all he said was extracting the final tenths is excessively difficult and they need to follow the Yamahas example (admitting that is big). Suggesting that this explains the Yamahas dominance of the top 10!!

Overall Dovi was pretty good and with the concessions he was a lot closer to the other factories this year... but in general his results were about the same (a little better) than what Rossi did in his years at Ducati... basically with all those concessions, I would have thought Ducati would be on the podium at least 5-6 times this season... not saying they should have won!! but more podiums.... so it is difficult to give Dovi more than a 7 - 8 (definitely 10 for effort).. Redding would also be an 9 in my book... in the end he was the top OPEN Honda as a rookie... deservedly so... Aleix gets a 10 in my book also!! because although I expected a couple more podiums (or podium fights) from him he was not only top OPEN bike but he was genuinely in contention for overall top 6 in MotoGP with an OPEN bike!!

MotoGP » Catalunya 'most entertaining' MotoGP race


Yearby23: Catalunya or Mugello for me. Maybe Mugello by the tiniest bit as it was the closest winning margin all season.Both those races had fights that were the most intense and went on the longest.
Well it depends on where you put the emphasis... the margin of victory or the number of contestants for that victory? Catalunya had all four fighting together for quite a while and in the end there were three capable of victory, if anyone slipped they would lose their spot as proven by Pedrosa...if that move in Catalunya had moved MM off his line or wide...Rossi could have won!! So while it looked certain that MM may win, many saw Pedro winning and some saw a mistake that could have handed Rossi victory as he was so close to the front...so with many possibilities it made Catalunya most exciting IMHO.

WSBK » Salom shifts to Pedercini on 'official' Kawasaki


So many teams come and go and even WAY more successful teams do not make it in this series so to be honest, I am perplexed that Perdercini has stuck around for this long and I am referring to from a sponsorship perspective as well... I mean they really have not done anything in WSBK except make up numbers... I guess their bread and butter is SSTK.. Now before you all get mad...read on... my post is not to bash them but to congratulate them on being so dedicated to Kawasaki in some dark hours...could not have been easy BUT now look at this... a good rider with factory backing...a first for the team... and maybe we might see some consistent top tens or better!! a podium or 2?...fingers crossed...boy I love an underdog story!!!!!
