BSB » Milwaukee Yamaha unveil all-new R1


I agree it has a transformers look to the front but it took me all of no time to tell it was a major improvement on the last 6 years...Sorry but I could not stand the front intakes on the last generation from 2009-2014 models and the lights made it look like a cross-eyed bug...lol I am liking this more and more and in race trim it looks dang good...prior to 2009 (whenever the now old-shape was built) I always wanted a Yamaha but not for the last 6 years...although I love Yamahas particularly the R6.... anyway I had defected my thought to getting a BMW but I am back on the wagon again!! Good stuff from SMR and Yamaha.. cannot wait on a WSBK return full time!!!

MotoGP » Redding: My aim is to beat Crutchlow


Hope this doesn't come across as if I dislike Redding but it is kind of funny how 6 months ago the grand talk was get Redding off the crap OPEN bike and get rid of Bautista and give Redding that bike and watch him give Marquez a hard time..... FWD to now and it is "We think he can beat Crutchlow or at least he will try" For sure it was the fans doing this NOT Redding!!! but certainly he must have believe he would be faster even at this early stage. Talk about some reality check...TBH I even believe that if he did that well on the OPEN bike he should be top 6 material on the factory ride...I still believe this but inject 1.25 more years into that speculation and it now seems more realistic......

MotoGP » Redding: My aim is to beat Crutchlow


Stonapersona...not sure what you are smoking but Redding may well be happy if you hand him top 10 in standings now to walk away..beat Cal?? lol he needs to focus on not finishing 14th on a better kit than what Bautista had!!!.. tell me when was Marquez below top 6 in in practice or qualy in his rookie year....and Redding is wrestling with 17th???????????????????? Bradl or Bautista never had anywhere near this horrible a preseason...just saying...even in their rookie years.. I like Redding but his first year will be a struggle mostly because he is also with a team that has ZERO experience with the Honda ...IF he was still with Gresini and Gresini was still with Honda I would say his year would look better. TBH if he was with LCR I would say the same but there are too many variables and it does not seem that Honda is giving him the same attention as, lets say, a certain Australian who came from moto3.

MotoGP » Redding: My aim is to beat Crutchlow


I think Redding will come good...eventually....but anyone who expected him (including myself) to do any kind of stomping this year is/was fooling themselves....Challenge Marquez?.....we done shot past the moon, sun and stars with expectation and he can barely get it off the ground right now... 2016 will be a better year as he and his team learns the bike but TBH, 2016 is where I expect him to challenge the bottom half of the top 6 not the top 4....2017 may be his year for something special.....IF he and his team gels with the bike...

MotoGP » Redding: My aim is to beat Crutchlow


Beard9X: It is funny the way some fans using bottom 6 riders(Doci, Iannone) as Redding's target. Lol lol, put redding on a ducati and he can target the back markers only. There are a lots of people who belittle Dovi/Iannone effort just like that loud moth Cal did. IMO, for this, next and year after, Redding's and Cal's target should be beating Suzuki and Tech3 guys.
I believe he has the ability to be in the top 6 but the whole "give me a factory bike and I will show you" doesn't and isn't quite translating in reality.. I think/believe with the right support and team, Redding could put that factory Honda in the top 6 a few times no problem....but he does not have that yet...the team cannot give him a bike he can ride and he does not know enough to tell them what he needs and how to get it...Honda needs to step in from stage right and help out...at least more than they are at this present time.

MotoGP » Redding: My aim is to beat Crutchlow


Horsemen46: A lot of the harsh commenters here are forgetting that the VDS crew has zero experience with this bike or even MotoGP, much unlike LCR. Cal can focus on himself as the team will do what the bike needs. Scott can only give himself half the attention, the other half is reporting jack to the team what they're doing wrong or can do better- and the team won't necessarily be able to 'fix' it right on the spot. It's blurred lines for Redding, between what he can do better and what the team can prepare better.
Well aware bro...I may have came across harshly but I know it is the fans that had extra high lofty expectations of what Redding could/can do...Redding added a little fuel to the fire by suggesting and pushing for a factory Honda...only to realize he is below mid pack on what was supposed to have been a drastic improvement over the OPEN bike he rode...again with LCR or Gresini he would have been in better stead at this point in time.

BSB » Wraps pulled off Tyco BMW


Agreed with you about not seeing the number but it looks pretty good to me. But that also depends on what you are comparing it to...The Milwaukee Yamaha looks better IMO.....but nevertheless this is not a bad looking project. As someone said before though...I am surprised BMW gave TAS the motorrad backing vs Buildbase BMW...I mean they have the rider that was challenging for the title last year...and he is the former multiple champ so logic would say the factory support/backing goes to them. Anyway, I am sure BMW wants to see their bike on top and will support Buildbase as well. The official backing may be because of the corporate colors (not meshing with Buildbase red) and TAS is a good team so we will see....

MotoGP » Aprilia: We didn’t see the real Marco Melandri


Matt2:
Joeski .
Wait wut? Akira is tuning company and they work with Kawasaki. Barbera has not ridden ART/Aprilia but Kawasaki and it was about Kawasaki that he made those remakrs.
Matt...sorry... absolutely correct...missed my meds...PBM and Ioda were the only Aprilias last year.... but what support did Ioda receive since most of the year Aprilia were not even sure they would enter GPs in 2015 anyway...My main point is they were not very vested in MotoGP...CRT ART or not until the decision, about mid year, to enter GP....Suzuki on the other hand has been committed to return since they left and have been doing testing since that time...2011 compared to 2004 for Aprilia...

MotoGP » Aprilia: We didn’t see the real Marco Melandri


@ Vilas46 The problem is not in Melandri's head...he knows how to ride and he can be quite fast...Romano basically alluded to it in the article....the problem is in his proverbial "heart." Melandri does not want to be in GPs, at least not with a new project that will take the better part of 2 years to be competitive. Add that to the fact that his momentum for a WSBK challenge is gone now...he just started gelling with the Aprilia and what he needed was another year in a factory team (preferably Aprilia where he has continuity) in WSBK to take a proper crack at the title. Like someone said on here...Marco should go partner Leon H in WSBK and Aprilia should have grabbed Kallio, Zarco or Salom and have Marco do some wildcards and GP testing in 2015....If he were to secured the WSBK title and Aprilia comes good in 2016 then Marco would be more ecstatic to do motoGP as a WSBK champ on a good bike...

MotoGP » Aprilia: We didn’t see the real Marco Melandri


Vilas46: TedG Has to be other Probleme in melandri head in my view... 4sure i think Aprilia should be a more competitive bike allready because unlike Suzuki Aprilia was folowing Motogp program with the ART bike and 4sure they where thinking on there return to Motogp wille Suzuki was not making any caind of race in Motogp and showup with a completly new project,
Aprilia has not been in GPs since 2004...I think, Suzuki just left 3 years ago so they have more relevant references. Aprilia supplied a "make shift SBK" CRT and we have all heard the complaints about no support because Barbera said some sub contractor worked the engine (Aiko...I believe). On top of that Suzuki has been testing and developing this prototype since they left in 2011...so I am not surprise by their position.
