MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP ECU to be ‘equal, easy, safe’


PCXMAC/Professor X WSS bikes are also on much poorer tires, just like WSBK. You see, we can't have MotoGP looking second rate you know :) Appearances RSMick, don't even pretend it's anything else.
Who says they are on poorer tyres? WSS bikes are cut slicks, they are marked for road use but you can't buy them. WSS and WSB tyres are softer than Motogp/Moto2 tyres, designed for higher speed not endurance, they are designed to degrade to manufacture the racing, Motogp/Moto2 tyres are designed to last the race, WSB/WSS races are usually around 3/4 the distance of their GP counterpart. WSB bikes set their faster lap times at the beginning whilst Motogp tend to at the end of the race. Assumptions ProfessorX, don't even pretend its anything else.

MotoGP » MotoGP pay TV 'something we must face'


Then Mr Tbaggs is an I not a we. Mr Tbaggs should also should stop inferring that WSB there for all to see for no extra payment and Dorna will take that away. Maybe you stick to paying for Eurosport as your happy to do so, and let those who are happy to pay for BTsport or Motogp do so, that is true agreeing to differ.

We liked the Eurosport TV coverage provided by Sky. We'd rather watch on a decent TV than huddle around a small laptop.
Technology has moved forward since those days like the way we watch TV, I huddle round a 50" TV watching Motogp from the internet, its been possible since TV's started including RGB ports, never mind,DVI, HDMI, Display port, DLNA, SmartTV or casting, basically around 12 years

cfsteezy: Seeing how supersport and moto2 bikes lap roughly 2 seconds slower without any electronics makes the millions spent on rider aid development almost seem pointless. I would like to see a gp riders lap time without aids and then with. Like the front 4 guys. I am sure they would turn in some impressive times that would be extremely similar to the time with aids..
WSS bikes have traction control, anti wheelie control, launch control, Moto2 doesn't.

MotoGP » MotoGP pay TV 'something we must face'


Tetley: Agreed. But PTV will decimate viewer numbers
Short term it appears so but wait, the figures also do not include people like myself who watch from the web-site, judging by twitter and other sites, thats quite a few, but not casual viewers, which are the point, are they needed. Like football a pub TV counts as 1
So I must also pay to upgrade my system to enjoy PTV? That's even more extra cost !
If you are making a CRT last then well done, however, the picture quality must be poor
And surely it's impossible for "I" (you, singular) to huddle ? ( Smiley face ).
Ah irony

MotoGP » MotoGP pay TV 'something we must face'


Tetley: Not in all markets. Here in UK, Eurosport comes as part of my Sky package and the cost is the same whether I view WSBK or not. But your comment worries me as it sounds like the rot has already set in.
I am in the UK, if you don't get it on Freeview, Freesat or the internet you are paying for it, you pay for it as part of your Sky package, if Eurosport wasn't on there it would be slightly cheaper. Its like saying that GP's are free to BT internet users. WSB used to be free on their web-site but that was very shortsighted, the TV companies started dropping out as they were paying for it. FGS then gave exclusive rights in Europe to Eurosport, so the only way to watch was pay by TV or on the Eurosport web-site which had terrible band width. Dorna have turned that around to give web-site coverage which last year apart from Jonathon Green (who wont be there next year, it will be Steve Day and Greg Haines) it waspretty good. Remember you need a TV license t

MotoGP » MotoGP pay TV 'something we must face'


Somersetlemon: Well I will not pay to watch sport on TV under any circumstances. I have seen no Moto GP this year, but have watched a lot of WSBK on Eurosport, and also BSB.
How did you watch Eurosport without paying?
Tetley: The part which worries me is that Dorna also owns WSBK, so it is entirely possible that Superbikes will follow MotoGP into pay-per-view, losing thousands, if not millions of viewers, leading into terminal decline of the sport.
It is already on Pay TV
