Wonder why he never made it in Moto2. Is it the bike , his weight or smthng not right in Moto2. They should allow more manufacturer to supply engine, gear box or even chassis

Some SBK/WSS riders don't like the amount of direct feedback a Moto 2 chassis gives. They are not as forgiving as a production chassis, and require more precise input. They don't respond well to being dragged about or being forced into a corner or a change of direction, refer to Sofouglu, Gino Rea.
Max is also a big guy compared to most of the riders who are competitive on a Moto 2 chassis.

I dont know, about which accident you spoke, but the serious accident wasnt Checa. It was Brendan Roberts, I think.

Im happy for Max. He prove his speed, as he made a few laps on Stock BMW, Superstock BMW and Superbike form Creser last year (od the, Im not sure)

Moto2 frame was not suited for him. He wasnt able to change his style so much.

@GOM , Reese, Would love to see comparison btw Moto2 n WSS. For me WSS bikes are more beautiful and agile. I guess WSS bike is faster than Moto2 minus Marquez bike. Any data on similar track. Is it the tire tht moto2 1 second faster than WSS. Good luck Max on tht Duke.
