..... So however clever it is... its still a MotoGP-specific dead-end with no direct engineering and commercial application for the data and solutions, as they can simply run an engine at lower rpms and get better returns. By RSMick "Engine size, output and speed have nothing to do with it, nor the fuel that matter. Come on Talentfan your not thick, are you?" All I can think of is a vague connection you're trying to imply to the proposed CoW Race Track. Which (if I am reading you right) STILL has sod-all to do with Honda's spending to gain advantage to market their products. CoW would stand or fall just the same if MotoGP bikes banned data-logging, gyroscopes, TC, & imposed an 11k rev ceiling for the engines! You're just misdirecting again Mick... you cannot find a way to discredit waht I have said about Honda, Budgets, Gearboxes and the silly Fuel Limits... so you try to head off on a tangent. You missed your calling... you'd make a cracking Politician.

TalentFan: ...... The guy is a one-man propaganda machine, and most of you lot fail to see it.
Thank you TalentFan for the sweeping generalisation that all commentators on Crash are so easily led. Or is it that should we not agree with you we are wrong?
Sorry J13, I am happy if you are one of the enlightened ones. Perhaps you haven't seen the sheer volume of pro Honda propaganda Ole Mick comes out with. It's like he is a one man PR machine for Nakamoto! Try questioning the status quo in MotoGP and he is right in there, always looking to discredit the poster or misdirect when all else fails.

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty confirms MotoGP move


By the way SasquatchBob.... Yes you're right. MotoGP IS the pinnacle.... If you are on one of the factory Yamaha's or Honda's. Not for anyone else it isn't. They are always one step or more BELOW the pinnacle, as MotoGP is stratified with 4 levels of competiveness 1. Factory bikes 2. Satellite Factory Bikes (which are actually controlled by the Factory's that supply them who race in 1. above, so have power of control over their so-called closest level of Rival - so they can 'manage' Tier 2 anyway). 3. Open bikes. (Not quite as good as Tier 2, & again still supplied through thos that race in Tier 1. So... still not independent). 4. Remnants of CRT. So hopelessly uncompetitive no Factory feels the need to worry about them. Also Ducati... but unless and until Ducati defy all the odds and become a Tier 1 genuine competitor again, then they cannot affect the status quo when battling with Tier 2 and 3 teams. And RSMick has the brass neck to claim that MotoGP has 'no issues'! The

MotoGP » Eugene Laverty confirms MotoGP move


Ok SB... Given that the evidence is there every single race weekend that (being generous) 20% of the field is truly front-running competitive..... while the other 80% are in a further 3 levels of uncompetitiveness...... If YOU were a Racer, and weren't being offered one of the top 4 bikes from the top 2 Factory Teams.... Why would YOU want to be there? Me? I can only think of a few things.. 1. The natural Ego of a successful up-and-coming racer is that his talent and ability will be demonstrated, and that he can make the difference. 2. As 1. above, tempered with the idea that his obvious talent will mean the big Factory teams cannot afford NOT to have him so will promote him 3. Prestige. 4. Money and earning potential (current and future) from having been a GP Star. Endorsements and so forth. 5. Fame. There are lots of possible reasons why a Racer would want to be in MotoGP, despite knowing the ride they will get on will be uncompetitive.

So far the ongoing tech rules proposals coming out of Dorna suggest that they are true to form... Toothless and ineffective. The status quo will not change, and MotoGP will not become a true Riders contest. Once fans stop raving about the talents and successes of "the aliens" and think deeper... It will dawn that (due to the politics and power) that... 1. A small percentage of riders are permitted the opportunity to succeed 2. Most of the field are prevented from putting up a challenge. So... Why are there defenders of a system where the premier class of motorcycle sport is actually pre-arranged to have hardly any true combatants? There ARE ways to put this right. Instead Dorna introduce ever more convoluted and over complicated rules to muddy the waters and try to hide the fact that they aren't actually sorting anything. Unfortunately it's corrupted, and reduced to a sham. I hoped 2016 would at least START something, but it's just papering over the cracks & diverting atten

RSMick: Size not weight. How many times do you type RSMick? Your becoming a Tobesterr.
Ah. Back to the playground (or PM's Question Time Commons barracking tactics) eh? Sneaky , underhanded, calculating, devious, cunning, unpleasant, untrustworthy. Yep, should be a Politician. No moral compass required. If you cannot bully a poster off track with your pseudo so-called facts, then you'll employ any other tactic to try and win a point. Just how far and how low will you stoop to defend your Agenda, Mick?

@ 46Renovation History did not have ever smaller bikes physically and didn't have a 21, then 20 litre fuel allocation. So the comparison with Doohan etc is meaningless. FYI Marco Simoncelli was struggling with fuel because of his size and weight in MotoGP and was struggling to complete the race distance on occasion. It seems that people are determined to disagree with basic physics, simply because it is me that is saying so! RSMick has his own agenda. And it's a recurring theme where he ALWAYS defends the status quo in MotoGP

RSMick: Again very difficult and complex, but where do you get your HRC development figures from, I showed you €20m including development a year.
Where'd you get your Euro 20 Mill Budget figure from? Even if you have a source, you have no more idea than I do just how much funding is drawn from elsewhere within the Honda Corp, or is bought and paid for in another aspect of the company and the cost not directly applied to the HRC / MotoGP effort. Misdirection AGAIN. You demand I prove that Honda spemd big... and I provide reasonable tangibles that do indeed suggest strongly that this is the case. Without being their Accountant I can do no more. And... NEITHER CAN YOU! Why so determined to defend Honda and prove that Honda doesn't do what all the available information patently says that it does? You're a slippery customer, & thats a fact. Stop wriggling and misdirecting - Time YOU proved YOUR points, by DISPROVING mine I think.

SasquatchBob:
TalentFan: Now... think about it. 20mpg. Thats the best a MotoGP engine can do, when used as intended. With the very, very best engineers in THE WORLD working on them.
I'll be honest, I don't think 20mpg for an engine which revs as high as it does, being driven as hard as it is, is anything like bad. Bear in mind, the official figure for a 2014 Yamaha R1 is only 35mpg. And that will have been measured at optimum level, not full throttle. I've had cars that do less than 20mph when driven hard.
Yes Bob. And 20mpg is outstanding, for an engine operating under the parameters and conditions it does. But 20mpg is still rubbish in todays world. And what works at 16k revs with its associated throughput of air/fuel, and high losses due to its extreme performance are going to present different solutions to what will ever be used commercially. So however clever it is... its still a MotoGP-specific dead-end with no direct
