MotoGP » Electronics cure for early Lorenzo problems

That is simply called evolution. The bikes have evolve with the years, and riders adapt to the tools available to them. Every little advancement in technology gives the nostalgic crowd something to cried about. If not for this evolution in technology we'll be still watching them ride Nortons, MVs and Triumphs from the early days of racing. So get over it people, there's no stopping this, not even with the introduction of the standard ECU.

MotoGP » New engine, fairing for Ducati

As an engineer I can say that Carbon Fiber as material is great if you're trying to build something with the least amount of flex built into it. You see is a composite(fiber reinforced plastic) and as such it doesn't like to flex. A motorcycle chassis or frame needs to be flexible enough as to provide some kind of movement while the bike is leaned on it side therefore acting as some sort of extension for the suspension. You can't get this kind of tuning from carbon, and trellis chassis can only dream of offering the regidity and flexibility of aluminum. Ducati's problems are in my opinion more to do with the balance of the bike and it's electronics. Please answer me this how can Honda use an engine that has the same layout as far as in degrees between it's banks and make it work? That's the million dollar question.

MotoGP » New engine, fairing for Ducati

@Guna4699 I have to agree with you, but could it just be that the character of this new engine is more mellow to aid in the "putting the power down more efficiently handling areas" and maybe giving them a more manageable machine? I hope they find their true form as the beginning of the season surely was exciting to have more manufacturers at the front.

MotoGP » Rookie Vinales ‘growing’ with every race

This kid has a bright future, consistence and patience are things that can work in your favor, and he seems to have both. I believe that both him and crazy Joe are stars in the rising. I feel that with better equipment under them they could perform better. Here's hoping both bikes improve and finally catch up to the Yams and Hondas, then we'll have a proper field.

MotoGP » Dovizioso talks Ducati 20-second deficit

@ProfessorX, How is this the result of the control tire? As we all know the Ducatis use the softer option available to the factory teams which is the most commonly used tire in most races. The factories barely use the harder option. This just points to the same old things, Ducati being slow to react and develop. Please tell me what have you heard as far as new parts coming out of the Ducati factory for the GP15? None! Yamaha has tested a new chassis, Honda has tried new swingarm with new chassis, heck they even back to last years chassis, but Ducati still playing with the settings of the bike. Yes you made a strong start to the season, but what lead you to believe that the others would just sit still and not progress through out the season. Try new things I know is a new bike, but not everything will work at 100% on that new bike and by now you should know what needs to be change/alter replace. But that's just my point of view so who knows.

MotoGP » Big accident takes Casey Stoner out of Suzuka lead

@ProfessorX If I recall correctly Honda did give Dani a proper shot more than once if I'm not mistaken it was called the RCV212. That bike was made specially for him, they went insanely small to tailor the exactly to him. Remember how Hayden looked on that thing. Dani has had his share of bad luck, but to imply that he has never had the support or the equipment is absurd.

MotoGP » Hayden to test new spec Ducati after Misano

Everyone here is talking about the frame, and how they should go back to CF frame and do this and do that. I'll tell you this from an engineer's point of view. composites are not ideal when it come down to having a certain amount of flex dial into a chassis. See Carbon or Fiber Glass,go through curing process which cause the resin to harden therefore becoming very rigid. Aluminum on the other hand is more manageable, you can tune it for more flexibility or rigidity easier the any other composite out here. Remember guys a bikes chassis is an extension of the suspension it acts like a springboard when the bike is leaning on the curves. Just a thought.

MotoGP » Yamaha seeking Silverstone ‘revenge’

@ RockNRolla46, That might be true, in case you didn't know Toyota owns a big chunk of Yamaha. That is why the engine in the last generation Celica as well as the Lotus Elise had a Yamaha design head or Valvetrain. So I don't really think Yamaha is strapped for cash, I just think they got lazy and now they're paying the price, cause Honda just kept on chugging along. Remember it's the top form of motorcycle racing, you just can't sit idle no matter how good your bike, or you'll pay the price, perfect example "DUCATI". Thanks.
