WSBK » Guintoli hopeful for Aprilia contract extension

All this Melandri championship talk imo the guy isn't cut out to be champ at least as long as Sykes and Kawasaki are around imo Melandri is the third or fourth best rider in SBK and thats behind Sykes and Rea and fairly even with Laverty over a season on equal machinery each having strengths in different areas. Sykes and Rea are the best SBK riders at the moment but Sykes is the best combo of man and machine his shenanigans with Baz cost him some brownie points with the fans but he is by far the best SBK rider and bike combo capable of becoming the best SBK rider in history.

MotoGP » 2015 MotoGP rider line-up so far

"Currently Aoyama is the better choice for 2015, but hopefully Camier can impress at Indy and Brno." In terms of sponsirship money yeah he's the better choice also remember Aoyama did next to nothing on he ten kate honda I don't even remember him beating Camier on the Suzuki. Performance wise Camier is more than likely the better rider. "I can't see Eugene Laverty getting a seat in MotoGP." Truthfully as a fan of Lavertys I can't see the move happening but their is a slight chance. Aprilia soumds like the most promising atm my guess is Guinters isn't doing it for them he doesn't have that little bit extra to win a dog fight regularly and seems to choose not to take the risks Laverty and Melandri would. The working relationship with Laverty and Melandri isn't the best thanks to their rivalry. If rumors are correct and Laverty gets an Aprilia motogp ride then it corrects Aprilias mistake of replacing Laverty with Melandri early and makes klme like Aprilia as a manufacturer alot more.

MotoGP » Avintia responds to Ducati rumours

@RSMick I find the same misconception with Honda some people read their annual report and assume this 500 mil dollar figure for R&D is the budget for the rc213v and pretend like that is the only project Honda motorcycles could possibly think of to spend their R&D budget on. I doubt the Mugen that won the TT Zero class this year was cheap to build. For Kawasaki they could walk away from motorcycles and their other businesses probably wouldn't notice. I remain hopeful that Kawasaki can come back to Motogp in some competitive form even if they just provided engines as that's one thing Kawasaki is very good at imo. I'm not very hopeful of an announcement in the near future though. The Aprilia coming back early rumors have me perplexed at the moment I don't see how Aprilia can hope to sustain a WSBK and motogp factory efforts unless they are going to do it half a$$ed. The only positive for these less competitive companies is that 2016 has spec software and new tyres.

WSBK » Guintoli hopeful for Aprilia contract extension

Well Sykes is doing the business Foggy I didn't care for but a great rider nonetheless and Bayliss was something special. WSBK was called the Ducati cup for a reason and Honda made the VTR's for a reason. Denying Ducatis advantages is playing blind Bayliss their is a reason why Ducati riders have won so many races sometimes it did come down to the bike just being better than the rest. Sykes is doing the business these records set by others are not out of his reach sure Max beat him by half a point but do you honestly think he wouldn't have won last season had Max stayed. Melandri has had the some of the best bikes and hasn't delivered the goods which is down to Melandri. He's good but he's not the best SBK racer today.

MotoGP » Schwantz urges early Suzuki MotoGP debut

"i would agree with you if dovi and crutchlow were still at tech3 but beating bradley and just beating his rookie brother is good but i just think the extra fuel should be an advantage and not just on top speed" Tell that to Marc, Rossi, Dani and Jorge I'm pretty sure they wouldn't trade their advantages for Aleixs. Aleix would definitely trade his for theirs though.

WSBK » Guintoli hopeful for Aprilia contract extension

"Eugene + Marco would be a good squad for next year, Eugene is a proven commodity on that bike, hopefully Aprilia are serious and Eugene only has to serve 1 year at Suzuki." He's in talks for riding in Aprilias motogp team though I doubt they would want Melandri and Laverty on the same team. Team orders would mean sweet stuff all with that combo. I wonder how Melandri would feel if Laverty did get the motogp ride and he got left behind in wsbk. Time will tell all anyway.
