MotoGP » Sepang MotoGP test times - Friday (Final)

MachSpeed: why don't the non repsol honda's do at least as good as the tech 3 yamahas?
Inferior riders. Cal has been telling whole hes Motogp career "I could do this I could do that" If I had the same bike as xxx. Same for Redding last year, "it doesent have enough power". You could say they are new to the bike and will gain performance, only problem is, so will the others. Both of them need to step up. Especially Redding being so close to the RS.
But Cal was regularly beating non repsol hondas during his tech 3 days. The last rider I remember who looked threatening on a non repsol honda was Simoncelli.

MotoGP » Crutchlow: The Honda is what I expected

NineTimes: @ motojunky VR is master of late braking. There has never been anyone better at braking. Just give him the bike he wants and he'll show you what late braking is all about. MM sure brakes hard, but not like VR. I remember those days when VR pumped the ohlins all the way in the last possible point. Never seen someone as good at braking ad him.
I don't have the data to say which way is more effective, but the MM93 way of braking with the rear wheel in air looks a world more impressive.

MotoGP » Marquez from Lorenzo in frantic FP3

TrueFan: Laps in FP3 under 1 min 22.5: Looks like VR and JLo are in good shape to challenge. Of course, Marquez will have a different outlook...Stephan Bradl and Brad Smith have good. consistent pace too, and both ought to be very motivated...
I still won't put my money on anyone else but Marquez winning. Marc can find the extra .2 seconds when he needs it. That's why he is winning so consistently. But expect the race to be a close one. Closer than Catalunya, but Marquez will still win.

MotoGP » Marquez: 'Big pain in the neck'

cosmros: How come he got more power while upshifting and highsided . Wouldnt this be the other way round ? He shud have highsided while accidently downshifting . Does someone know why ?
You tend to go faster when you change up a gear, more speed less grip when leaning a bike over.
The amount of Throttle he applied has to be same when Marc Marquez thought he is in Second Gear . So if he is in third , the power he got shud be less then what he expected if he is higher gear...Still cant work my head around this crash.
These bikes are ride-by wire machines, no direct relation between twisting the throttle and the power. Also strictly technically speaking, the gear selected has no effect on the power transmitted to the rear wheel. Power = torque X wheel speed. Gear determines the ratio of the torque and speed for a given power. I read about Aprilia's ride by wire systems. They interpret the tw

MotoGP » Pedrosa: Good to be back

Pedrosa really won a fan in me with his performance in the Catalunya race. If he'd knocked off MM93's rear wheel tcs sensor when they came together, it'd be such a poetic justice. I am a MM93 fan too, but i didn't like him running not the back of DP26 like that last season. This season has been so exciting to watch due to high quality of racing, despite MM93 winning everything. Mugello and Catalunya were especially close thanks to JL99 and DP26 stepping up their game. Assen could be really close 4 way battle for the lead.
