RR » TT 2015: Hutchy: Beating Dunlop makes it more special


teamddr: yeah it must feel great to beat a man that's clearly injured through no fault of his own riding a year old bike he only got on 3 days ago that's slower than the 2015 model bmw a man that had to help his brother into an ambulance just hours before and is trying to re focus a man who up to the pit stop was leading but you got 4 seconds on him and a new Tyre (that loophole will be sorted for next year) in the pits then wait for the pain to kick in on his arm a man your nearly wiped out during practice and people call MD arrogant when he beats him fair and square is time enough for dribble like this
Why should a tyre change be a 'loophole'? Surely, the risk of something going wrong is immense and it would normally make a much longer stop. Also, any rider could have changed their tyre. Most didn't. The one that did won.

F1 » Alonso insists he is ‘not regretting’ McLaren move


richard: hondas proper name is honda MOTOR company, as that is what their expertise is in...motors. remember their first foray into f1? they came in with a jewel of an engine and in their own chassis and it bombed. it was not until they put the engine in a lola chassis that they won. ditto with spirit and bar...the motor was good but the chassis was terrible. so they built their own chassis, which had promise but economics forced them out. ......... but they will get there......
But they didn't win with BAR or Spirit. The last Honda car to win was at the 1967 Italian GP and the last victory of a branded Honda engined car was the 1992 Australian GP. (Ok, there were a handful of wins for the Mugen badged engines in the 90s but they were not pure Hondas and Button rather luckily had a win in 06 in a very flukey race)

F1 » Alonso insists he is ‘not regretting’ McLaren move


Giveaway: Id rather the backing from Honda, a major backer who hates failure. They will get their speed up, and when they do, watch out.
Lest we forget - Honda's record in F1 is decidedly patchy. From 83-92 they supplied engines and had considerable success (71 wins) but for over 20 years they have disappointed. Remember BAR/Honda Racing? 118 races over 10 years and no wins. Not one. Today they are struggling in F1 and are even having considerable problems in motogp with engines. So, yes, they hate failure and that is why they dumped their F1 team and virtually gave it to Brawn 6 years ago. Clearly they hope to bring back the glory days of the eighties. It may happen, but with the current rules on development I suspect that it could be a long time - perhaps too long for them.

MotoGP » Marquez: We have a lot of work to do


shakennstirred: isn't it july when they have to stop developing there own ecu software. no more updates to that. so it could get worse
True but that is the software. Mapping can still be changed (data that is fed to the programme for processing) and it is re-mapping that they are hoping will fix the problem. Being Honda and having some of the best electronics engineers, I suspect they have already exhausted that avenue. Honda not having a lot of luck with their motorsports engines in 2 & 4 wheeled versions this year.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to demo RCV road bike


jon.meacock: i would of thought the idea was to make something truly iconic, for a start, it needed to be the 5 cylinder v5, not the four for Christ's sake. i'm sure the 4 cylinder v4 is technically superior, but they seem to be missing the point what people want. it's like Ducati selling a MotorGP inspired bike and fitting valve springs...it has to be art.
No, the idea was of to create an RCV road bike and that would rather preclude of 5 cylinders, a crunch gearbox and of hub brakes. If you think they have missed of 'what people want', I would bet that the whole run will be snapped up faster than you can say 'Crikey, that's bleeding expensive' suggesting that there are plenty of people who do want it.

MotoGP » Casey Stoner to demo RCV road bike


VKal:

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.
Yamaha cleverly implemented their M1 technology to produce a decent bike. the electronics package is 90% similar with M1. The new R1 is much more closer with M1 than previous R1. Anyway, how similar is the road RCV with MM RCV, in percentage?
By weight?, By size?, By comp
