MotoGP » Marquez, Pedrosa talk ’two strong riders’

Dani may still be the bridesmaid but he's a very good bridesmaid. The ideal #2 in a team. Fast, reliable and capable of winning should #1 get a problem. This year, he seems to accept this and does the job asked of him and this takes the pressure off him. He is not expected to beat Marc and can therefore concentrate on keeping ahead of the rest, which he is quite capable of doing. He's still certainly in the top 4 and Honda would have been very silly to let him go. And Honda don't do silly...

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: 2016 ‘year zero’ for MotoGP

brs: I think electronics aren't being reduced,just controlled.maybe we will get to see something different.hopefully it will reduce the gap between factories.
Indeed. Already all machines use a standard ECU but whereas the 'open' class use stock software, the factory bikes have bespoke software. To use common motoring parlance, the factory bikes are 'chipped'. Bringing all machines to the same level means the electronics argument weakens as the advantage of bespoke software is lost. To use another computer analogy, its like having 2 dozen laptops from different makes but similar specs and loading them all with an identical version of windows. Yes, it should reduce the gap (with emphasis on should).

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi: 2016 ‘year zero’ for MotoGP

TrueFan: What we don't yet know, is what will be built into the software package for everyone to share, and whether the various manufacturers can simply provide optional modules into the common base that are only useful for their bikes... The bikes are unlikely to be on equal terms. The other manufacturers will have access to the same code, but it might not work for them... Think of Windows, pre-loaded with drivers for all sorts of printers - Honda, Yamaha, Ducati, and Suzuki....not all printers have colour.
Trouble is, Honda probably use Linux so don't have any of that nonsense. :)

MotoGP » Bradley Smith: Nothing yet for 2015

Codger: There is a lot of posts on this site trying to get the Esspaggerro (nod to Ryder) further up the ladder. The truth is that they, and all the other riders from 5th down, show no consistency at all. I wouldn't like to pick the next alien from any of them. Dovi on a decent bike might be a steady 5th, with the odd top 4.
Um wasn't the works Honda a good bike for Dovi then?
Is that the bike he finished 6th, 5th and 3rd in the championship on?
