MotoGP » Rossi, Lorenzo debut 2015 Yamaha

gongsin: Yamaha got the outright top end horsepower but cannot produce good low mid range horsepower at the same time. It needs a lot of data settings and fine tuning the horsepower range to sort the bike out. Honda is doing a better job at the moment.
A V-motor has greater block rigidity enabling very high compression ratios without block distortion under load and resistance to torsional vibration. A 90 degree angle as used by Ducati & Honda creates a very well balanced and smooth motor minimising frictional loss thus maximising power and torque. In-line fours, especially those with crossplane cranks such as the Yamaha, suffer from increased vibration and generally require power-robbing balance shafts to smooth their functioning. This, combined with lower compression levels generally mean that from a pure performance perspective, a V-motor is always the optimum choice. Weight distribution and its effect on handling is another ma

MotoGP » Redding waiting on Gresini for MotoGP 2015

Redding is no Marquez yet I see potential by the way I'm a VR fan all day long so I'm not bias !!! Riding an open bike with roughly 30 less h.p is also a lot easier. Trust me I'm 5 sec a lap faster on an r6 then I'm on an r1 . Needless to say I would like to give the kid at least a chance to see what he can do. Why can't Honda give him an afternoon when they do usual testing days. Within five laps they would know if his worth anything!

MotoGP » Redding 3.5s from Bautista

Guys let's look at it this way riding a bike with 20 some odd horsepower is a lot easier too! I'm sure he would be better than most out there now but he is no Rossi or the other aliens! He would probably be at best top 8. I'm not knocking the guys but he talks a lot of bullshit and doesn't respect his elderly at all.

MotoGP » ‘Great emotion’ as Rossi returns to Mugello podium

killahrat: "I tried to stay close and sincerely I hoped that Marc and Jorge would make a small mistake, touch the other and go a little bit wide so that all three of us could fight" Is it bad Karma for a rider to hope for the others to crash into each other and fall off or do they just not think it is OK to say it out loud.
These comment were not meant to be personal don't take it that way just enjoy the master at play "vr"

MotoGP » Rain scuppers Ducati MotoGP test

TalentFan: Still finding it sad and a sorry reflection on intelligence that people manage to slag Ducati for being given a so called unfair advantage.... yet without any thoughts about how HRC & Yamaha Factory teams have had the advantage of skewing the series rules to Play to and Protect their huge resource and technical advantages for years! Talk about double standards! How can you berate one Mfr for this, yet have no problem for another to have got away with so much more, for so much longer? Is this bias? Or just plain stupidity? It makes no sense to anyone with a fully functioning brain and any sense of fair play. So why do we see so much of this kind of attitude?
I think you are full of shit Ducati always got treated better when super bikes went to 1000 cc Ducati had to get 1099 and it keeps going and going every time there was a change. Some how or way they always were allowed just a tad more. I understand v twins don't make as much power but then race it in the twin class ( super bike related) and now why not give them an advantage in moto gp! You crazy ! They won countless championships with baliss and all inline 4 manufacturers were bitching because they were retaredly slow because of cc disadvantage. So I say fuck Ducati and even game for everyone.

MotoGP » Bridgestone: Positive debut for 2014 MotoGP tyres

TedG: I think Lorenzo crashed because one of his most effective weapons is to squirt out in front on the opening laps and create a buffer. The track conditions, new tire construction, cold tires, and over eagerness to get away were a matter of the stars just not lining up. And probably a bit of frustration knowing that his most trusted weapon (high corner speeds and lean angles) had been compromised.
