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.
