MotoGP » PICS: Aegerter starts 'Kawasaki' MotoGP test

Don't read too much into this, this was not a Kawasaki test. This was a test for Akira on an evolution of the no defunct Avintina Kawasaki powered CRT bike. The only reason the bike is running Michelins was Akira not being able to afford Bridgestones and so buying some cheap Moto2 tyres off of the CEV championship. Quite what Akira are trying to prove I have no idea but it is certain that no Manufacturer would cobble together such a poor effort and have it shown publicly. From all accounts DA is not happy

MotoGP » Petrucci ‘can exploit Ducati braking’

I expect Petrucci to have the beating of Hernadez easily next year. His crew chief saying he can use the full potential of the bike? been a few years since we've seen a rider do that on a Duc, scary thought if it happens. @TF2 I think Ducati are more than happy with their engine, fuel and software concessions. Their probably also more than a little pleased with the soft tyre flattering their qualifying. 2016 will see them back on the same rubber and rules as everyone else having had 2 years to develop their engine. Gigi ain't daft

MotoGP » EXCLUSIVE: Herve Poncharal (Moto2) - Q&A

Herve always comes across as a good guy and somebody who genuinely loves the sport. His thoughts on teams competing in all classes seem to be spot on and well thought out. Though I wonder how this thinking applies to Honda who also supply the engines for Moto2? Anyway quote of the article has to be "I'm not going to give you the names, but I can tell you they got a Kalex and they were not world champion."

MotoGP » Moto2 ‘valid’ despite Miller’s MotoGP jump

Might be a really good year for tech3. Rider continuity has surely got to help from the point of view of feedback when developing a chassis. I'm not saying their riders are championship material but the Tech3 Chassis might start to turn a few heads by seasons end. Sad to say that Moto2 which could have been a hotbed of innovative chassis development (See Vyrus) has instead become something of a homogeny. Maybe the Kalex domination will spark some innovation from other manufacturers/designers? We can only hope
