MotoGP » KTM to join MotoGP in 2017


We dont really know what level machine they are going to bring, last comments I read from KTM was that they are not going to come as factory but they are selling/leasing? the machines to teams. When there is Hondas, Yamahas, Ducatis to sell or for leased and those factories are competing in MotoGP as factories are KTM really going to be competitive without factoryteam in racing to develop the bike?

WSBK » Aprilia boss talks World Superbike future


ProfessorX:
Matt2: I think there is bigger obstacle than money behind Aprilias SBKracing. I could be wrong but can the RSV4 be competetive with the rules that are coming? I mean there must be a reason why you can hardly see those aprilias in STK 1000, BSB or other domestic series and if you see them they are far a way of winning races. Next years rules are STK bike with modified frame and better electronics but other than that there is not that much of a wiggle room.
not even after market suspension?
I tought people who read and write on the WSBK section are grownups and aware of the situation. But as you clearly cant read between lines or want to be smartass, yes aftermarket suspension not to mention sprockets and brakepads!!! can be changed.

MotoGP » Alvaro Bautista confirmed with Gresini Aprilia


1MoreRound:
Wasthatit: I would like to see Kallio get a chance on the second bike. Always thought he was a great prospect and may suit the MotoGP paddock better than Moto2.
Why? He has done well in M2 but was nothing spectacular when he ran the premier class.
Hes MotoGP bike was THE Ducati, not the model anyone can ride today. And even with that bike he was best rookie and if i remember correctly best satellite rider on his first year. Next year they didnt let satellite riders change the bike and went with what Casey wanted, it didnt suit Kallio and he shoulder got messed up. You should also remember Kallio was the one to run that factory Ducati when Stoner was ill and was pretty fast but it all ended with that famous front end with the bike. Kallio deserves another shot in MotoGP with good bike.

MotoGP » Redding: 2015 options open at the moment


Im not a Redding fan but its really crazy when Crutchlow gets factory Honda in his current form and guy like Redding needs to be on hes knees and asking favor from the guy upstairs. I dont think it would be that bad to ride updated Open Honda next year but if that is what he doesent want to do then its hes desision. Lets hope he gets it all sorted after all he was runnerup in Moto2 and deserves shot on factory bike.
