MotoGP » Factory engine for 2015 Open Honda


Firstly - well said Spinach! This move was inevitable - Honda weren't about to get bad publicity continuing and Yams effort beating their 'for sale' Open bike. Tbh, all the Mfrs are just defeating the whole idea of CRT and Open, and Dorna are too feeble to do anything even if they wanted to. MotoGP does NOT need manufactured racing for entertainment like Brain says levelling the bikes will do. FFS thats what we already have with all the exotic electronics and Factory machines, multi-tier field etc. Its manipulated entertainment NOW (just bad stuff). All thats happening is that Open bikes will run spec ECU and software. However even if that became the standard throughout, the Factories can afford to crank out better data settings etc. to dominate and afford seamless etc etc to stratify the field once more at vast expense Private teams cannot attain. This will make an Open Honda a much more competitive bike (tho still not enough for the box). But its another nail in the coffin f

MotoGP » Marquez: I’m not afraid to lose


Marc's face fits into the Marketing Plan. You're totally naive if you think for a moment that anyone who had massive talent but zero or an unmarketable personality in MotoGP would have his seat with all it's many advantages. People love winners. Especially smiley camera and media friendly ones. And most people demonstrably overlook it if the Winner had hardly any competitors with as good a package to make those wins worthy. MotoGP isn't about sheer talent equalling success. It should be, but it isn't.

MotoGP » Marquez: I’m not afraid to lose


SasquatchBob:
TalentFan: Think on this... If for some reason MM popularity and marketability were to fail for some reason... does anyone REALLY believe he would remain as successful in GP's? (A. No.)
Hang on... Marquez is utterly dominating the season simply because he's popular? Really? If I misunderstood, I apologise. If not, hahahahaha
What- you don't see that he has been groomed as the next Rossi? He comes from the right country to suit Dorna and Repsol, & Dorna have seen what a "star" can do for media exposure & revenues. So why leave it to chance?

MotoGP » Marquez: I’m not afraid to lose


V4Poweeeer: Only his closest opposition is scared, scared of how long this is going to go on for.
I can answer this. Marquez will be dominant for as long as the Repsol Honda has the advantages it currently holds, and for as long as Marquez fits the profile as the personality to be the face of Dorna run MotoGP. If one of the above changes then so will MM's fortunes. Regardless of a zero change in his riding ability. After all, MotoGP places actual true rider skills and competitiveness we'll down the order of importance. Think on this... If for some reason MM popularity and marketability were to fail for some reason... does anyone REALLY believe he would remain as successful in GP's? (A. No.)

MotoGP » Marquez: I’m not afraid to lose


RockNRolla46: Are ProfessorX, Talentfan, Shamarone the same guy with 3 different account?? I hear nothing but moaning about Honda and Dorna from this guy. Who gives a s*it about conspiracies? I just wanna see close exciting racing and first 1/3rd of the Indianapolis race was just that.
1. No we certainly aren't the same guy. 2. Close racing between how many riders exactly? You're just one more who can't see the wood for the trees. Too easily fooled / satisfied.

MotoGP » ‘5%’ - Marquez talks Moto2 rumours


Won't happen. It's just a carrot being dangled to interest the donkeys. Dorna would either have to allow MM another M2 rocket ( A bike that I'd rather a lot more equal than anything else on the grid shall we say )..... Or... Risk the Golden Boy getting his Mr Wonderful Rossi Personality Replacement programme being rocked by a Rabat or a Maverick actually beating him. If it ever did happen I guarantee his 600 would have the performance of a 750 (again) at Valencia. Dorna can't risk their golden goose lead actor having an ordinary day. Sorry guys but it's not in the Marketing Plan.

MotoGP » Marquez leads close Brno FP1


So.... Absolutely nothing different then in essence. I'm no soothsayer, but how many of us could have predicted this general order and the general gaps through the field? We'll just about everyone. Yet there are those shouting that Grand Prix is exciting. It's fast. It's colourful. It's got glitz n glamour. But it has no depth. Not of competition nor of excitement. My main interest is to see how Camier gets on, and Crazy Joe & Hernandez do. I am already pretty damned sure what the front of the grid and the so-called "race" will be (barring incident).

MotoGP » Rossi: Honda has found something


....... is buried behind equipment disparity & technology. End of. Until fans start to think properly and see through the media hype and actually see how It really is .... Then ALL your riding heroes are doing is risking life and limb to put on a show not a proper race series, and the stupid are putting riders on pedestals and worshipping them when in truth the result is largely orchestrated. How is it that so many sports fans can be so blind as to not see what is right in front of their eyes? You'll never have a more blatant proof of this than these last 2 seasons. There must be those raking the money in laughing their heads off about how they can get away with anything cos the audience is so easy to fool and to please. If Grand Prix fans want proper racing and real champions then you HAVE to demand these things.

MotoGP » Rossi: Honda has found something


Truefan. I agree with your assessment on tyres. It's the only thing that throws data solutions strategies off... But not for long ESP if you have a data engr Army. See early thus season for evidence. As for your examples... Fair enough and I'm not eliminating the rider input 100% here... Just saying the rider input is far diminished over 2006 / 2007 as it is inexorably eroded by the technology. Stoner or indeed any rider now cannot hope to employ all his superior skill against an opponent, as so much of what goes into the ultimate pace and keeping the thing on the island is now out of their direct control, replaced by the tech systems. Comparing 2006 with now is comparing apples with bananas if you take the point.
