MotoGP » Honda comments on DCT gearbox rumours


So as I said earlier you guys think the racing is boring and it needs to be dialed back to 2 strokes with no electronics and you will see who the best rider is. You think Rossi will return to the throne somehow if that were to happen. I think we can see clearly who the best riders are based on their performances on equal equipment. Nobody was complaining when Rossi was on a 990 4 stroke against 18(Maybe more, only yamaha factory team, suzuki and repsol honda had 4 strokes to start the year in 2002 and only 2 more 4 strokes were added laterBarros and Kato) 2 stroke bikes without a chance.Duh! you forgot the important thing. Its not and never was about the riders. Its about the manufacturers and technology. That would be like f1 being limited to soapbox derby downhill cars. Only the best riders win races in MotoGP but it also depends on the kit they are given. The only true test of abilities is in Moto2 but even that is not a given that you will succeed in motogp.Rossi USED TO BE the kin

MotoGP » Honda comments on DCT gearbox rumours


You guys think no electronics will make rossi the king again? wake up! Rossi's rc211v was the first bike in the championship with tc. But one thing is for sure. the guys who are best always seem to win. You don't think Rossi is riding around all these years without tc or electronics for the engine do you?why do you want a prototype class to be a bunch of lawn tractors racing? BTW all this technology does trickle down to the showroom so you can get the same features on your streetbike in a year or two. That being said If WSBK has traction control and electronics and so does your honda, kawasaki or yamaha, why does it make sense to you that an M1 or RCV should be any different?

MotoGP » Rossi: We are quite worried


I never count Rossi out if he is .5sec down in practice before a race. But he has consistantly been 1.8-2.3 secs off the pace all through the tests so far this preseason. It's just logic that he isn't saving 2.5 sec in reserve for Qatar. Qatar is btw a Stoner track not a Ducati track. He went well there on the 990 honda in his rookie season setting pole and leading 20 laps of the race. Ducati needs to leave their tradition and build a normal bike. It doesn't work unless there is a freak kid to ride on it which they no longer have.

MotoGP » Rossi: We are quite worried


CRASH you have deleted a lot of my posts recently for being non supportive of Rossi. Is that a prerequisite for posting opinions on this website? When Rossi does well I give him his due, but when he does something dirty underhanded or illegal I speak my mind. This may upset his supporters but that does not mean that it is not fact. He made a bad choice going to Ducati. Hope his career lives to bounce back from the mistake. Maybe he can land at suzuki next year and develop their bike that they also seem unwilling to change despite the fact that it sucks.

MotoGP » Go backstage for a photo shoot with Rossi


Rossi will sell bikes in western europe, australia and maybe indonesia, yamaha started to market jorge in indonesia even before Rossi's departure from the team. The domestic superbike series in the states needs an overhaul if they really want to penetrate that market. The hardcore riders are the only ones who care about MotoGp or superbike. normal people never turn it on when they watch tv. And when they do cover it, they flood it with commercial breaks every 5-7 minutes and you usually miss all the big moments of the race. So even if by chance someone was watching they will be totally put off by the sorry assed coverage. I like the spanish coverage the way they keep a small window open during advertisements so you can see the race live. They need to keep throwing **** against the wall util they find something that sticks. If that is not Rossi, then try someone else, or something else.
