MotoGP » Nakamoto wants greater usability from 2015 Honda

the factory/satellite Honda riders didn't complain about this during 2014 season. Why tell us this now? Didn't hear MM complaining... did anyone hear this? MM only complained about the 2015 bike after Valencia test. MM has mentioned on several post race interview that the bike was great/good and hardly blames the bike when he loses. the Yamaha guys say Honda is better and now the Honda (not MM) says Yamaha is more 'ridable'. So all those arguments we had about how 'good and smart' the Honda bike is throughout the year has become invalid.

MotoGP » 2016 MotoGP ECU to be ‘equal, easy, safe’

Joeski: cont'd... enjoy or go watch competitive sweater making without electronic aids like digital sewing machines.... Do not get me wrong...I miss the old days of sliding the bike and the twist of the wrist... hell even carburetors sound good but we have moved on and as nostalgic as I am about the old 500's...lets see.. Honda dominated then too...I think Suzuki had a couple championship and Wayne Rainey did something in the early 90's for Yam... Rossi brought them back to the front.. We need to drop this electronic aid argument...the single ECU and shared software is the best WE can hope for!!! where electronics are concerned!! but I will bet nothing will change in the next few years...the top riders will be the top riders!! the midfield will tighten up which is good!! I suppose.....
Well writen, mate... nothing has changed. I have been watching GP from the 80s and it has always been Honda/Yamaha with 1 Suzuki WC. Ducati won in 2007 (during the electronics

MotoGP » MotoGP ‘not far’ from 2016 agreement

Comments about manufacturer having more resources/money to throw at software development: I think it's not just money. Software engineers don't just pluck parameters from the sky. The historical data is where the money is for the software eng to build their code plus don't forget real time data which includes machine data and riders input plus the craftsman (builder/mechanic). Honda and Yamaha has been in the game longer than anyone plus they have the best pilots at the moment. Take Ducati, they have been in the game for some time and have the money but they don't have is the data like Honda/Yamaha. I think the event is already even with fuel restriction, engine freeze and limit, limit is testing. They should offer the same tyres for all. The software piece wouldn't mean a thing if the engines don't last the season.

MotoGP » Yamaha: We have two riders that can beat Marc

the M1 was not far off the Honda towards the end of the season. MM was really good this year and that's another factor that Yamaha can't fix. they can fix the bike but not the rider. JL in some races was not in his best 'mental'. He needs to start the season with strong 'mental' state. VR performance this year was above expectation. Anyway, nice photo of the three.

MotoGP » Michelin front main question for 2016

notm4bs: This is all well and good until Marquez crashes and really gets hurt, then what?
What does that have to do with anything? Dani is more than capable of fighting at the front. In 14 seasons he has only not been 1st, 2nd or 3rd on four occasions. He's got a really solid track record. He can hold his own.
if there where more than four bikes in the race he would be in trouble
Indianbear, you made my day... that was really funny.

MotoGP » Rossi unveils new Yamaha R1 Superbike

VKal:. BMW could only dream. People tend to forget that Yamaha and Honda has technology development via MotoGP. They could easily come out with a competitive production bike over night. Do you honestly think BMW has that much of performance technology knowledge at their disposal?
WRONG !!! BMW have been at the cutting edge of F1 technology and car racing engines for ever. They have way more of a racing heritage and pedigree than the Japanese can dream off. 500cc supercharged engines in the 1930's.....and extracted 1500 bhp from 1.5 litre motors in the '80's. So yes, BMW do have performance technology at their advantage.
then they should be in MotoGp competing with Yamaha and Honda to showcase their technology? do a a google on what Bernhard Godmayer, the head of BMW's motorcycle racing says about Honda, Yamaha and their focus is reaching technological leadership.

MotoGP » Valencia MotoGP test times - Wednesday (Final)

Yearby23: I think it's been a good first test for the rookies too. Vinales has improved over the 3 days as has Miller, knocking a second off his time from Monday to today, remembering he's on the RCV1000R and the top 4 are going out on 2015 machinery the gap isn't terrible at 2.7seconds.
Read JMs interview - apparently, the newbies are riding without rider aids (TC, wheelie control - bike with this HP would be hard to control). Not sure that's the case for day 3.

MotoGP » Rossi 'a little worried' by front tyre dilemma

herewego: Whoever said Valentino just has to look at Jorge's settings is a complete idiot! It was Jorge's settings Valentino used in his first year back when he didn't do so well. It has taken him time to revert the bike back to settings that suit him which is why he is flying now!!
Yamaha teams share all kinds of data and new parts. So say VR not benefiting from parts/setup tested by JL is not true. the same could be said about JL. This thing is JL tend to be up to speed on the first day of testing. this produces some good data which the team can use.
