MotoGP » Scott Redding to Marc VDS Honda


tobecis: Some people are way too premature in writing off cal
I tend to think that Crutchlow may have been second choice for that ride, however I do not think Crutchlow will ever win a GP. Whilst its great news that Redding has secured a ride with a team he is comfortable with, 'careful what you wish for' springs to mind. Although a couple on here believe the bike will do everything, if you have the top equipment you have to be capable of pushing it to that limit or else you soon fall down, Crutchlow at Ducati for example. Whilst Scott is the best rider we have for a while and don't knock self belief (or though on twitter paints a different picture), I can't help thinking now the results have to come. Biaggi came a cropper by getting what he had always wanted and moaned about at Repsol and look what happened.

MotoGP » Aprilia confirms Gresini for MotoGP return


This is what Albesiano has to say about entering Motogp: "It is a strategic decision to promote the Aprilia brand worldwide. The SBK promotes the product. In my opinion the SBK has been very important to communicate Aprilia in a certain way, now the decision is to raise the bar. " If S1 had predicted that he would be fistpumping and puting a natcork in by now.

MotoGP » Aprilia confirms Gresini for MotoGP return


shamarone: re: "Last week at BSB." Q: what's that got to do with it?" A: money/revenue stream, or lack thereof.
So why didn't they produce a Moto3 bike? Or produce a 600 engine and bid for the Moto2 contract? Could have even built a Moto2 chassis. Why did they pull out of Motogp? The same reason as Kawasaki and Petronas the bike was too slow so just stick in WSB, Flamini's not policing anyway. Didn't see them complaining when they held the monopoly in 125 or 250 deciding who gets what!
not against the "all singing all dancing" 213 they ain't.
Is it Honda's fault they can't? Every company sets out to be the best in the world at the moment Honda are succeeding in engineering terms, and its not all singing and dancing any more.

S1 or Sham not sure: A: when's the last time anybody's seen an RSW250 or 125 in competition...?
Last week at BSB. whats that got to do with it?
S1 or Sham not sure: and when's the last time anybody's been in a rush to get to grandprix and have their throats ripped out by Honda...?
Mahindra and KTM seem to cope, Piaggio are a lot bigger company than both of those, KTM are tiny in comparrison.

MotoGP » Aprilia confirms Gresini for MotoGP return


Only Ducati of the above had factory teams. HRC have never really been involved in WSB always Honda Europe, as you said with Yamaha. But its the viewing figures and marketing ability I am talking about more, it just never made it, you could fit Brands in 1 corner of Silverstone and have you seen that with 120k in it? I have been at Brands with 60k in it twice and like you say it take hours to get out. Flamini lost some TV deals by putting it free on the WSB website, then signed a crazy 5 year deal exclusive to Eurosport in certain countries. Avintia have just announced Ducati's for 2015 and rumours Barbera will be on an open one the same as Hernandez next week. And the Technomag and Epp Swiss teams will join forces on Kalex's, another snub for Suter.

MotoGP » Aprilia confirms Gresini for MotoGP return


Sham Dorna produce some great coverage, and great sport camera's, by employing their own camera teams instead of hiring subcontractors their cameramen are racing specialists. They are currently experimenting with 4k camera's and transmissions, the first to do so. As well as gyrocam and remote controlled gyrocam. As for Kawasaki, their sales are down again this year with the number of bikes sold only 50% of their nearest Japanese rival, whilst Yamaha are top with Suzuki 2nd (suprising). BMW & KTM outsold them, but not suprising is that Harleys outsold them all. So you will only actually see Kawasaki's filling 6% of the carpark and a clear sign that WSB is not working.
