Honda suck big time!! BMW have only had their Superbike for a couple of years yet they have trampled all over the Japanese bikes! The only decent Japanese competitor is the Kawasaki. And then for the Fireblade's 20th anniversary Honda launch this mild upgraded bike! WTF Honda? Catch a wake up! Look what the Germans have done with the BMW S1000RR, and the Italians with the Aprilia RSV4 and Ducati 1199 Panigale. The Jap's have been caught with their pants down! Triumph just need a new Daytona for the 1000cc class and the Jap's will really have a World War on their hands! :?

Its Karma!

when the japs came to europe they hammered the european bikes to the point where no one in europe wanted to race,

you reap what you sow and the japs are getting a bludgening simply because europeans are now building better bikes and with the global market at the moment european bike are about the same price as european ones ( in europe )

Honda need to take the RCV put some Fireblade stickers on it and take that to WSBK

I'm afraid its time to move on Johnny. Honda do not intend to do you any favours, certainly no motogp ride and a crap bike in wsbk. Time to stop bashing yourself up for nothing, get yourself in the shop window now!

re: "Catch a wake up! Look what the Germans have done with the BMW S1000RR, and the Italians with the Aprilia RSV4 and Ducati 1199 Panigale."

well you prolly weren't around, but a decade ago honda said stop looking at our blade and SP2 and start looking at our V5 shock and awe campaign.

one look at their million dollar gearbox now is all you need to see that grandprix is where honda's heart lies. since the days of soichiro, that's where it's always been. technology trickle to the benefit of worldsupers (a series they couldn't influence or control) BE DAMNED...!!!

goes to show how good tenkate boffins are. going fast on a bike that's ALREADY fast ain't really a trick. successfully polishing turds...? why you got yourself a career son...!

Johnny has some real talent but he has to ride on the edge because the Honda is not on par with the top bikes. This causes him to make mistakes and pay a price for them. I would love to see him on a better bike and not have to beat himself up so much to run with the top guys.
