MotoGP » Casey Stoner to demo RCV road bike


SendingOutOfSpace: so.....it has all the R1M has but why does it cost 5 times more? euh.....................................because............................
Because it has rather more than the R1M The R1M is just an R1 with some fancy bits tacked on. On the Honda the chassis, swinging arm, wheels, suspension, crankcases, fuel tank, tank cover, throttle bodies and seat unit are absolutely the same as what Marquez rides. The engine is also not the same as their 1000cc road bike - far from it. Supposedly it kicks out 210bhp at unspecified revs and the whole thing will cost around £150k. Production run is likely to be 300.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to demo RCV road bike


grantrd: hahahaha.......all you clowns on here saying its ugly and expensive can only dream of owning this bike........even if it cost £300k they would still sell every one they make........ It will be the most special, most exclusive piece of motorcycle engineering any normal human can dream of owning.......... Would love to have this, an H2R and an R1M in my garage !
Most special and exclusive? Not really - a Brough Superior fits that in all ways and one sold recently for £315k - however, the Honda will certainly be a sell out even at a daft price. Just like their last effort at a hyperbike, the NR750 with its weird pstons, which cost £38000 twenty-odd years ago. Sadly though, most will probably be bought and then put in a glass case and never get near a road or track.

RR » TT 2015: Dunlop ditches Yamaha for BMW!


It was said last night that the BMW he will be using is the BSB bike that Kyonari was testing at Snetterton this week. 'Bung it in a box and DHL it to the Isle of Man' Not sure if it made it for scrutineering yesterday but it would be close with all the changes needed. Riders loyalty to bikes is not quite as well defined in road racing and riders changing machinery is not that unusual. Not usually this close to the TT though. If he was that unhappy with the R1 that he felt an unready bike would be better, I don't blame him. A lack of confidence in the machine is just what you don't need at the IOM.

F1 » Grosjean upset at lack of apology from Verstappen


onetwothree: 1.He jump some categories that would have made him more mature. 2.Takes the place of Vandoorne or Magnussen more experienced,to name a couple. 3.Driving permit is allowed at 18,21 depends on country for a reason.F1 is more demanding.More.
1. Which ones? GP2? GP3? I am not aware of any category that has been jumped. 2. He replaced Vergne 3. Driving licence age here is 17. Some countries it may be 21. This country has the 2nd safest roads in the world (after Sweden). Clearly, having a lower age is not safety based. Try watching him. He has outstanding skills and remember, other drivers have gone into the back of others - some even running into the back of stopped cars in the pit lane - and they are now world champion.

F1 » Ricciardo optimistic engine will last Canada


Oldguru: As you are on your last schedule engine you may as well run it to failure point. This will allow the failure to be analysed and parts to be upgraded. Changing engine without a failure will not help the development of the engine. The number if holes, the hole diameter and the angle of the holes have a big bearing on controlling the combustion within the cylinder.
That would guarantee a penalty at the next race. If it can keep going it could well means some points (especially with the attrition rate at Canada) and the possibility of avoiding a grid penalty at the next race.
