MotoGP » All-new Honda for Mugello MotoGP test!

By recollection two new frames and a swingarm. Engine which was designed as a stress member has had nothing done. And this is over close to two years. HOnda starts the season tyres change causing chatter and within two months they have produce a brand new bike, if you cannot see the difference betweent these scenarios particularly in relation to how prepared one is to find a solution, hmmm not much to say really.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: The Hondas seem to have found something

As one pundit alluded to at the start of the season when the chatter started that that was holding Honda back, solve that and it is a return to the Honda/Stoner test pattern. Also just released a whole new bike to deal with it. We are seeing the end of MotoGP and courtesy of Honda. All I can hope is (whoever is riding) Audi bankroll a transformation at Ducati and they return to the winners circle otherwise it will be a one trick pony series. Feel sorry for Jorge as in 2011 when it was clear that while Stoner is a phenomenal ride the Honda nailed the Yam and he still pushed all the way to the end. Plus he whinges less than Casey...

I don't think anyone is disputing Honda's "right" to produce a new bike but agree it kinds of reeks of the what Ducati got lambasted for. However, in the big scheme if you have one company which can and is prepared to spend this kind of cash and the other cannot then really it becomes a "chequebook" series rather than a race series. Yes maybe Honda will spend cash without finding a solution but by the looks of it they are prepared to keep spending until they do Yamaha probably doesn't and I would say Ducati probably doesn't either. Sounds like a recipe for great "racing" NOT.

MotoGP » Confident Lorenzo relishing Mugello return

Not a great deal of mystery to this. Honda went away and rustled up some new frames and solved chatter, DP and CS ran away (well until he crashed and blamed everyone under the sun). If the solution has been found it could be resuming of the 2011 test pattern. I wonder how the Audi's will go this time. Also did you see on GPOne that Pernat (ex Jorge manager) confirmed that Jorge was offered more than Stoner to come to Honda. Looks like Honda couldn't stand his moaning either even after saving their bacon in the 800cc era.
