MotoGP » Q&A: Shuhei Nakamoto (HRC vice president)

They really are serious this year. Good to see them acknowledge their riders as a part of their success. Also, an interesting bit of info about Aoyama running the conventional transmission. I wonder what else on his bike is not up to full and current factory spec. Very impressive Aoyama! He seems to give the nod to Lorenzo over Spies over race distance.

MotoGP » Pedrosa: Repsol Honda aren’t a step above

Pedrosa's height and weight presents a problem. While it helps him in some areas, it creates problems with braking. More than any other rider I have noticed he's lofting the back end during braking. You can see it hopping around all the time. And yet he's still getting 'out braked' by others. The problem is that he's already at full arm extension and he can't get his minuscule weight any further back on the bike. Therefore, he pushes harder, although it doesn't necessarily appear so, and falls off. I think that Pedrosa rides and tries as hard as anyone on the grid. If anything, he's overcompensating for his stature.

MotoGP » Ben Spies: 1000cc MotoGP will be better for me

I don't think that the 1000cc bikes will look like the 990's of old. The electronics and technological advancements are staying. However, they won't be like the 800's either. The midrange torque should allow competitors to ride a bit looser to maximize the power and the way it's delivered. A more squared off corner style. I think this is the part that will suit Ben. Wresting a bike that's sliding a bit more. So my prediction is that they will look like a cross between the 800's & 990's, but a bit closer to the 800 style.
