Rea is a solid bike builder and his contribution to the development of chasis, electronics, ride by wire is eminent... With Rea & Aoyama it seems to be a very strong team... happy... Good effort Honda... Love the Castrol Livery

Following the tradition we all have seen by Pirelli to favour different teams every year, so they cant complain that their bike doesnt work with their tyres, I can perfectly imagine Honda fighting for the title next year, alongside with bmw and probably Lavertys aprilia. I dont particularly like honda, but its about time for them to be champions, so they can keep interested in wsbk and remain for many more years. All I wish is that the championship remains exciting througout the season. I wait to see if bmw has solved its electronic woes, and the same goes to hondas ride by wire system. If they do get that sorted, they just might be wsbk contenders.

Don't count your chickens before they hatch kids.

The CBR1000RR is the highest overrated turd after the BMW so I'd wait until the end of next year to start the champagne celebrations.

And why could they not have done this 2 years ago to this bike?...I mean it needs two years of accelerated development to even catch up with the other Japanese bikes never mind to better them..

If there is one rider that deserves a good year it is Jonathan Rea! Such a brilliant rider who gives everything he has every time he races. I have always rated Jonny and have done since his days in B.S.B. All this young man needs is a bike that doesn't let him down and he will do the rest!!!!!

There must always be some Honda hater somewhere ... but meanwhile they have the most SBK wins after Ducati in SBK, most TT wins, most GP wins ... this bike is becoming better and better, and with Rea and Aoyama it's looking good for next year !

Go Honda, hope you take the MotoGP and SBK titles next year.

Before this season started I had Johnny Rea down to lift the title. Aside from the injury, I didn't realise they'd put such a dog of a bike out.

On a good bike, he'll win it. And it'll lead to a good Honda ride in MotoGP, which he'll deserve.
