MotoGP » MotoGP weight changes, software freeze


How do you know they spent significantly? Seamless gearboxes have been in F1 since around 07, Honda weren't the first to use it but quickest to perfect it, so all they have done is used technology from the F1 team, like all good engineering companies do. HRC is a training ground for Honda's engineers, all on salary so they would pay that anyway. I know Honda won't fit it to the customer bikes because they are at the moment 600k, 12 times that's a lot of money. They are concerned that the software to run it needs a lot of time to get right, so yes money but not sure the basic open software has it in its capability. If you cannot see that the fuel technology ALL THE MANUFACTURES agreed to will not help production engines in anything, then you really are blinkered. One area you should realise it will help is very close to home for you?

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


grantrd: Where did you get those figures? Dont know where they are going to end up now...Not sure the Aprillias will use them??
I told you the horses mouth, you just have to know what you are looking for. Simoncelli only got 2 podiums, admittedly was higher up the order. Truth is Bautista has a few places where his lap times are slower than 2 years ago, maybe he has lost it. Racing is full from minimoto to GP of 'I need what he has' when usually its the talent thats missing. The most likely for place for Showa is Avintia, but Ducati are usually strict as to what goes on their bikes, maybe a Honda open team.

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


grantrd: Its not holding Tom Sykes in wsbk back either, against a whole field using Ohlins...
See the above, factory spec suspension that like everything on the Kawasaki WSB you will probably not find available, in essence its a GP bike. They were using before Gresini. I personally hope that Redding is right that the elements are holding him back or he won't be on a factory bike for long.

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


No, Honda Motor Co own 25,447,856 shares (33.48%) Showa holdings only own 2.22% Its OK, I'm used to people firing rants without checking on here. Has it ever occurred to you or anybody that Redding might be getting everything he can out of Showa's and Bautista (either him or bike) may be pushing them beyond the limits? None of the other open Honda's have factory spec Ohlins/Brembo's the same for all the open and Hernandez bikes. No open team list Ohlins or Brembo as a supplier or technical sponsor (neither do the factories maybe something to Yamaha still owning 5%). There is a massive difference, they use over the counter units (at a huge cost) they also have to pay for a Ohlins technician to be in attendance. Not sure about Suzuki at one time they had Kayaba as their supplier, although changed to Ohlins. Who is to say that the factory spec Showa or Nissin units that Redding owns are worse than the customer Ohlins or Brembo's?

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


grantrd: RSmick............Honda don't own showa anymore
Since when? Their accounts still show Honda as the major shareholder at 33.48% You don't even have to google it, just go on their site, thats the great thing about Japanese companies.
grantrd: All the other open hondas use brembo/ohlins but redding is leading all of them....
So why does he need Ohlins and Brembo's then? Why is he moaning about Showa and Nissin?
