WSBK » Lowes: Ideally we’d have no electronics

Absolutely agree kma55, no rider aids in Moto2 at all. The advance of the Kawasaki from midfield runner to front runner is down to its superior electronics package which like the Ducati (last years uncontrolled Motogp ECU) and Aprilia is above the current GP level. GPS and active suspension is banned in Motogp, yet still allowed in WSB although not even the homologated model have it.

WSBK » Lowes: Ideally we’d have no electronics

BikeWatch: @RSMick Actually active suspension is banned in WSBK. It was allowed when Spies romped the field in 2009 but it is no longer available. Also I'm pretty sure GPS is allowed in MotoGP. Cal Crutchlow recently had a problem with his bike thinking he was at different corners of the track. Was it Qatar? Or COTA? Anywho, apologies if I'm mistaken.
It is banned in wsb unless fitted to the homologated model. GPS is banned in Motogp, they work out track postion using algorithms based on sequence of gear changes, revs etc.

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty on Suzuki MotoGP test: This is my chance

Lowes in essence is in a factory team, he is signed by Boscoscuro for the Speedup factory and is their No.1. What he is lacking like most WSS riders is experience on prototypes with all the adjustability that comes with it. However like Sofoglu before him is finding that the class is far tougher than what he left behind. And that is a very good point Jed
