MotoGP » Honda launches MotoGP road bike


@SoSlo: You're right, it is an awesome bike for those who know what it is. It's not a road bike at all but a true MotoGP machine that can legally be driven on public roads. The ridicoulous price tag is justified by the use of the best available suspension, wheels etc. The front fork alone would buy you a nice car! Honda used a trick to get it road legal with te kit. In "as sold" trim it is probably legal in most places in the world (is there a catalyc converter?). But after fitting the kit it probably isnt anymore. I am a Yamaha man but this is something i would not mind owning! Does the engine have the same bore/stroke as the racer?

MotoGP » Dovizioso: Ducati not ready to win


Slowly but surely Ducati is getting to the point that te bike is no longer the limiting factor for a race win. I must admit that I am suprised at the progress they made even with the advantage they still have. The fuel advantage I believe is not big at all and the tire advantage is only good for qualifying. With the bike as it was I'm sure even Stoner could not race it to victory...but with the current bike I am convinced he might!

MotoGP » Lorenzo: Yamaha quicker than last year


Ok, so now we have a "control" tyre...the same for everyone. But Bridgestone keeps changing this tyre during the season...and so Bridgestone (or Dorna?) effectively controls which bike performs best? This is more f'd up than the overnight specials in the past. If they want a control tyre, then make just one type (no hard or soft, just an additional rain tyre) and make them available to the teams at the end of the season so they can start testing imediately. The coming season no changes what so ever to the tyre that was available for testing. This way manufacturers have plenty time to adjust they're bikes to it...and if the screw up...too bad.

Le Mans » Davidson: Fastest car is no guarantee of Le Mans win


True that, especially at LeMans, the fastest car is no guaranty for a win...but history has shown that a fast Porsche almost always is... Does anybody have any idea about the refueling intervals between the different cars? We all know reliabilty is key in this race but my guess is that Porsche will have that sorted. Quite exciting to see the in-house battle between Porsche and Audi!

MotoGP » Dovi: Top four ride in a completely different way


The message to Ducati is the same. Except that for some reason Crutchow takes flak for saying it and Dovi doesn't.
Yes they say the same but Dovi's PR skills are a bit better than Cals! If he had be paying attention he might have known what he was in for. Sure his frustration is understandable but he should not be ventng that in public! Beating his bike on the way to the pits is bad publicity and that is not what Ducati needs. Dovi on the other hand clearly stated the problems with the bike and what needs to be done...sure this is the case for while now. Ducati has improved as much as te competition and that alone is a feat by itself altough not enough...
