Last time around at nurburgring, I was hearing the comments from the guy at eurosport, and he was talking about a crew member from team Pata with who he had spoken about the performance of their RSV4, and the guy said that compared with the duke 1098 that they ran partially last year with smrz, the aprilia is much more difficult to set up properly, nad that nori is very good at fine tuning the bike, but that without the good will from the factory technician they have in the team, the bike just wont go fast. like they did in MGP 2 strokes, its all about they saying who gets the updates from the factory so the bike can run decently.
Apart from that I think Nori is going really well now, and that he probably deserves to have the latest factory parts since Biaggi is out.

Great job considering his bike is still not the same level as the factory team. He didn't even get to join the test last week. Give him a factory bike.

Agree with A. Aprilia should loan him one of Biaggi's spare bikes since he won't be needing them for a couple races. Nori is no stranger to Aprilia but once he gets going on one, he'll be right up there. Given one of Biaggi's works bikes, he'd be able to show he's still got what it takes to win.

You guys have hit the nail on the head. Haga needs the factory parts and has done all year that bike is nowhere near Camier's spec let alone Biaggis!

Their team manager Marco Borciani had stated from as early back as Assen , that they were struggling with an inferior electronics package , Nori would start so well be up in the top 4 yet by the end of the race would end up midpack due to unmanageable tyre wear.

Its a shame Biaggi has vetoed all from having the same spec bike as him as ive no doubts that if the two were on the same bike Haga would have stomped him

The most worrying thing is Nori is still unsigned for next year ! i pray he doesnt retire
The Fans need him!
