From laverty twitter:

"Can't overtake as my bike doesn't accelerate or decelerate (slightly important). Maybe I should just skittle everyone like @MarcoMelandri33!"

:D :D

The apparent difference between the bikes of Max and those of his team mates is somewhat similar to another Italian make of vee four, where only one rider seems capable of achieving good results.

Someone explain me please if Camier lacked results on an inferior RSV4 (compared to Biaggis), why does he do the same on the GSX-R? I mean LC had some decent finishes on the Suzuki but nothing spectacular, if I remember correctly he - apart from a paar of podiums - finished mostly around 6-10th on the RSV4 as well or crashed. Laverty is more of a dilemma for me, he should do better. But still dont see why would be good for Aprilia to tweak Lavertys bike down. Not to mention that at the same time they provide Chaz Davies a pretty competent (in the last races at least) one. A bit confusing.

I very much doubt that Eugene's bike is of a lower spec than Max's as was Leon's before him.

The Aprilia just suits Max down to the ground and he is the only one who can really make it work.

Max is a 4 time World Champion and even at 40yrs of age, he is showing his true class.

I guess Davies bike is closer to Biaggi's than Eugene's then. Well it's closer to Biaggi's in the races anyaway, since he beat Laverty in race 1, lol. Using the argument that Laverty is somehow disadvantaged makes no sense to me, as it suggests that Aprilia do not want the manufacturer's title.
