MotoGP » MotoGP: 'Never go back to 800cc'

In a world that is so highly focused on clean energy and emissions the chance to return to two stroke machinery is non existent. Look at the direction all forms of motorsport are heading in...F1, Formula E, WEC and MotoGP in recent's all about developing technology for a smaller, cleaner engine that produces a stronger output of power and energy. The car world is all over electric and hybrid tech, it's only a matter of time before the motorcycle world does the same and it's not a case of not wanting to move in that direction, it's a case of having to in order to survive.

MotoGP » MotoGP: 'Never go back to 800cc'

Sasha Alexandrovich: Go back to 500cc. Nothing wrong with twostrokes.
Other than the fact that they are now completely irrelevant to anything. The 500's were great days and great machines but those times are in the past, MotoGP is about technological advancement and R&D. Manufacturers won't continue to support and compete if the series was changed to revert back to 2 strokes. How can technology advance by going backwards in history?

MotoGP » MotoGP: 'Never go back to 800cc'

salieri: I really don't see a REAL justification for saying that only 4 strokes can compete in motogp IF racing is meant to improve the breed - let variety reign!!
There's variety now. On the grid you have the 4 best racing motorcycles in the world, another 6 bikes that are slightly behind for varying reasons and then the customer Honda's, Forward Yamaha's, Aprilia's and customer Ducati's. People don't like all the variation in MotoGP. It's not possible to have rules in MotoGP and still allow for manufacturer interpretation and freedom. If you want variation in the bikes the rules have to be dropped and allow the series to become more like the World Endurance Championship for cars.

MotoGP » Moto2: Rabat writes off bike, but ‘wet now a strength’

Pugde5: What is more important 5 tenth places or 1 podium?
Speaking from a points scoring perspective, 5 tenth places is far better than 1 podium. Most riders don't ride in the wet because there isn't much a rider can gain set up or knowledge wise as you cannot use the bike to it's maximum ability. This is Rabat's 4th year on the Kalex, I imagine he's done enough wet testing in that period.

MotoGP » Jerez II Moto3 test times - Wednesday

madh4tt3r: it cant be the fastest time, because binder in session 1 yesterday posted a time of 1:49.4 and oliviera 1.49.5, so in this post he did a 1.54... that is a huge difference, 1.49.4 atleast puts them up near the front runners, not 30th..
Wrong. MotoGP website: Session 1 - 17/03/2015, Binder 1:49.461 times are from Wednesday...the 18th. Binder's fastest time from the 18th was 1:54.797.
