MotoGP » MotoGP Factory 2 triggered by Ducati 'advantage'


razghost: looks like bad news for Aleix, I'm sure he is not going to be so keen on getting on the posium if it means reducing the amount of fuel he can carry
Why? Forward will be in the open class, no reduction for them, its only if you use the Ducati software. Ducati only drop if they get a win, 2 x 2nd or 3 x 3rd. Its only like them have there intakes reduced in WSB

MotoGP » MotoGP Factory 2 triggered by Ducati 'advantage'


Its not just Honda complaining, it is all the Open class teams as well. There was a meeting at Qatar as the other open teams say the new software will take too much resource to learn and maintain in manpower, it is also too close to the season start to completely change strategies, again costing a lot of money. It s unlikely that Forward will be in Factory 2 as they will not use the Ducati code.

MotoGP » Fastest Lorenzo turns page on Sepang woes


MAG1697: I wonder if Jorge is now going to say that the tires give the Yamaha an advantage.
Are you saying that he said that the tyres give Honda an advantage? He may have been quoted as saying that by some so called internet journo who wasn't there. He said in the interview his style doesn't suit the tyres and they do not seem to suit the Yamaha, he also said that they suit the Honda better.

MotoGP » 'Very big' Open software upgrade not yet used


London Underground is an example of how regenerative braking is used, not where to sell the energy, possibly the zeroTT use it mildly . All cars used to run a dynamo linked to the fanbelt before an alternator, dynamo produces DC, alternator as its name produces AC. The last bike's I know of used to run a dynamo were the RD200DX and GT185, they then used to push the current back into the dynamo and use it as a starter motor, hence the big lump in the casing, my RD200 was a dog compared to the 250. I realise its all tongue in cheek. Dorna does know best here though, if they decide no TC, then no one gets TC. Everybody gets the same kit so more emphasis will be on the rest of the package.

Tetley to use regenerative braking you would need an electric motor fitting and use that to create the braking, so get rid of light carbon brakes and replace it with a heavy motor (in comparision) and batteries.The additional back energy (emf) created above the set induced energy would be stored and used, London Underground good example. However you could just fit an AC electric motor when you are not inducing current use the back engergy created invert (rectify) it to a DC source and then invert it back into the motor to give boost and the required times, KERS or Prius. Or simply fit an alternator or dynamo. The inertial sensor is hardly amazing technology just 2 (redundancy) x 2D inclinometers, a simple example the G-senor on your phone or tablet.

MotoGP » Phillip Island MotoGP test times - Monday (Final)


You can develope the bike as much as you want, just not the engine. As Ducati have used Marelli for years as have Yamaha it could be said that with their feedback it has helped mould the Marelli system. What is strange, the tests were arranged for 1 team of each manufacturer, why wasn't Avintia, PBM or ART allowed to attend? Cannot really say FTR because it isn't yet and I am not sure it ever will, are they still a company?
