MotoGP » Kallio turns first laps on KTM RC16 MotoGP bike

I dont know why you cut out so much information off, but here is some interesting things Pierer told. "The interview with Pierer contained a number of interesting details. It was already well-known that KTM would be using a 90 V4 engine housed in a steel trellis frame, but Pierer revealed that their engine is already making around 270 horsepower. The bike is using a seamless gearbox, developed in conjunction with X-Trac. Though KTM have already asked Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta for a wild card entry at Valencia, they could enter earlier, should the bike be ready."

MotoGP » Honda: Data shows Rossi 'kick' on Marquez

When you watch the images you can clearly see Marc turning in to Rossi as he expects Rossi to turn in to the corner. Rossi doesent, Marc hits rossi and the brake lever most likely makes contact with Rossis Knee slider from under the brake guard. There is no way someone could kick another drivers brake lever with their knee when the bikes have guards, on porpoise.

F1 » FIA confident it can avoid two-tier engine performance split

Ofcourse they can. But with different looking cars. There is no way if they go with 2 turbos they can use that slim bodywork they use now. Not to mention they need bigger fueltank. Heat will definetly be a problem when using 2 turbos. Secondly what is the point of Ferrari, Merc, Honda and Renault ceep using engines that cost 25mil per driver when the same performance can be had with 6-7 million? Can you even imagine the storm when one of these budget engine cars starts to beat the factory entries? In my opinnion 2 tier engines will not work, when everything else is so restricted.

WSBK » FIRST LOOK: Hayden makes Honda WSBK test debut

FasterEddie69:I still wonder why they can't use the customer GP bike in WSBK since it was sold to the public at $180k.
There is a price cap of 40k €. WSBK wants the bikes on the grid be same as what layman can buy out of the shop. There is already video on youtube "Nicky Hayden - Honda WSBK first Aragon test" and have to say he looked pretty good on those couple of corners even that weather was not on their side and he was not pushing for laptimes.

MotoGP » Moto2: Lowes, Kent quick on Kalex debut

What I would do to spice thing up in Moto2 is open up the engine requlations and bring more manufacturers. Now someone is going to say that is going to be expensive, like in WSS this season when top teams were spending hundreds of thousonds to modify those engines. WSS 2016 is going to go more of a stock engine and that is what I would bring. Bring those same engines from WSS, and make them use prototype frame, swingamrs, electronics just like now. Problem would be not all engines are same level, they are pretty close in my view, but it would sort it self out in max 2 years when manufacturers would bring new 600cc bikes out. Thats what is happening in WSBK. 1000cc bikes are taking huge jump and that would also happen to 600 if its not already happening with those rule changes for WSS.
