MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Wilco Zeelenberg - Q&A


Brain: Unfounded? All you have to do is go to the local showroom to see that there is no doubt that this technology trickles down to the consumer for an incredible low price. Like i said, the kind of performance you can buy for a measly 15k is incredible.
Nobody disputes the incredible performance of a modern sportbike but one only needs to witness the overwhelming number of stunted out, extended swingarmed, chicken stripped, Starbucks show queen, sportbikes to understand what they're used for by the average consumer here in the states. The reality of actually riding fast anywhere but the track or in a straight line leaves these bikes often failing to deliver against a basic single cylinder, grippy tires, and a big front brake.

MotoGP » ‘The GP15 is a real Ducati’


Vilas46: Its not rigth... The others are freeze, its a joke.. Qatar is the perfect track for them to show its goods on engine and chassi, was clear on tests, If they Win this race they are ready to figth for Title!!
Maybe I misread but I'm pretty sure article stated that after 3dry wins there will be no more open class concessions for Ducati but Suzuki and aprlia will continue engine development Into 2016 until they are deemed competitive. @hrc Learn your history. The Japanese moto and auto designs were built on the knowledge and development pioneered in Europe and in many cases were direct copies. Sure they build great machines these days but rarely anything as revolutionary as their European counterparts. Ducati is Ducati, says it right on the tank and things like desmo are a big part of it.

MotoGP » ‘The GP15 is a real Ducati’


@vilas While I often respect your opinion you seem to be ignoring the fact that open rules were introduced and it was Honda and Yamaha decided not to play by the rules when everybody else did. They forced the three tier fiasco we been enduring, not Ducati. It was a master stroke IMO for Ducati to break rank and accept the regulations at that point and start development on the inevitable standardized ecu. While they're sorting the 2016 bike for michelins the others will have the extra burden of ECU and tires.

MotoGP » MotoGP: 'Never go back to 800cc'


nikisan:
MotoMarc: Niki no need to bring back 990 as they can accomplish this with the current 1000 cc bikes just turn off all the electronics and let the skill of the rider determine who's better. It won't happen because most if not all the manufacturers in Motogp want to use electronics to eventually include parts of these electronics in production bikes for riders that have no skill. And to justify their ever increasing prices on their motorbikes.
No, it won't happen because these bikes would be completely unrideable if you were to take away the electronics...
yeah these stupid manufacturers could never build or tune an engine that would be rideable without electronic aids.

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Wilco Zeelenberg - Q&A


Cont. in the twisty parts. Sure damn near twice as fast on the straights but what fun is that? I've ridden an xr650 motard, huskysm510, and currently 690 ktm motard for fast roads riding and the "sport"bikes, even in the hands of racers are slower. I'm sure my 450 race motard is also faster just not as practical. And that's on the the fastest twisty roads. Tight, goaty roads and city streets are even more pointless for the sportbike. The advances in sportbikes have made them faster for track use only.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: The real game starts this weekend


crashnetdummies: Only those who like racing and nothing but racing. All you people are looking for a father figure haha... Herd mentality at its best. #thinkdifferent
I love racing and nothing but racing and that is exactly why I have a distaste for riders that whine and complain after a good hard race. I'll never be a fan of Casey Stoner, Jorge Lorenzo, Tom Sykes or Kenan Sofogulu for just that reason. All great racers for sure, but poor sportsmen in my opinion. Oh yeah, James Toseland was a bit of a cry baby too.

@brain I understand your poin in regards to manufacturers continuing to develop their sportbikes but to insinuate that it's for the benefit of the average consumer is unfounded. Unless of course you're talking about chest thumping and bench racing, and unfortunately its true that some consumers still buy the things for just that purpose.
