SUPER BMW BIKE?? I thought they made minor changes to the 2012 bike.

The best thing that could happen for BMW is Marco Melandri!

Super bmw..........tssss
Sinds this year yes, and not because of leon haslam.

Melandri is very fast!
He is a great rider and exiting to watch

The thing with melandri is he realy realy want to be up front and winning.
There are other riders, rider in Motogp, Dani who rides just because he rides the bike and not thinking and fighting or risking to take victory. dani saying: i had a vision 2 repsols on the ground.??!??

Keep pushing for wins Marco!!!

And i can only agree that marco realy is the best thing that happend to bmw, because he is pushing that bike on and over the limit.

Though he didn't realise it. Pedrosa's vision, seeing two Repsol Hondas on the ground was actually a premonition of the future when his loose cannon rookie team mate takss them both out next year. :) He had better get his collar bones reinforced over the winter.

Go Davide! I've been telling you guys to keep a watching eye on this fella. Best 2nd rider any Ducati team has had in a decade or so. Hope he gets a good race day under his belt once again and that the Panic-nail wont be as sh1t as the MotoGp effort is. Even Checa is looking to get away from it...

@Skiwi-1 No doubt Davide is fast, but in my own personal opinion he is also a bit wild, his style reminds me of Fabrizio's, very jerky but undeniably fast. Speaking of Fabrizio, when he was Ducati's #2 rider he actually was on the podium often with a few wins as well.

Mmm - Fabrizio had flashes of brilliance that unfortunately never came with any real consistency despite far too much cosseting from the Italians and Brno was his annual showpiece event. Davide has come up through the Superstock ranks and has the speed and determination to make the grade. It's always easier to make a fast rider safe and consistent than in it to make a safe and consistent rider fast! I really believe he is the emerging new 'thing' in SBK. I hope so as we could do with some more new faces - Rooting for Chaz as well though as I think he'll come good to.

@Bridgestone - Why? I'm figuring that the limitations of the chassis design combined with the whole starting from a clean slate regarding set-up is just too much to consider at this point in Carlos's career. The motor is 100% new I believe and the frame concept has been well proven in MotoGP - a career destroyer. Ducati's dream PR scenario was for Rossi to join them, sweep the floor and win the MotoGP WC then promote the technology as a sales point of difference - unfortunately things just haven't worked out as they planned and Carlos is no fool...
