now that HRC is onboard this year, im confident theyll get it sorted soon. Alot of new things to test so fair enough that they have a lot of teething problems

Does he ever say anything positive ? I quite like the bloke but wow, I'm not sure he helps himself or his team with the downbeat comments. Will be great to see the Brit team go well but I bet neither of them finish top 5.

Mart247 read the article again and you will see he has positive things to say.

He is two seconds down on a bike he has ridden for years and its to do with the changes so off course he won't be jumping up and down with joy

re: "Does he ever say anything positive ? I quite like the bloke but wow, I'm not sure he helps himself or his team with the downbeat comments."

since when does a comment being "upbeat" or "downbeat" have anything with the business of racing...? with the season start now looming BIG in the window, what his comments need to be at this point are brutally honest to a fault. if the electrics are crap, then they need to be branded as such. boffins can't "fix" any thing that they don't first know is "broken". whadda we wanna do...? wait till summer break to start spinning wrenches...?

At last, they are receiving some racing parts from hrc!!!

They had to wait for hrc to give to them the inverted swingarrmm!

What has Ten Kate been doing for all this time. They were suposed to take care of the parts fabrication and development , while honda took care of the engine development.

They simply have done nothing relevant for the past two years! Just introducing nthe fly by wire throttle and the 2012 newly revised bike isnt exactly fighting for the championship, is it?

At least they have plenty of sponsors, so thats not so bad! But if they keep sandbaging the whole operation, they better quit and give someone worthy a shot with the fireblade! Like kawasaki did with paul bird and his tteam! It really worked for them, and I suppose there are some good tems needing a slot in WSBK, such as Giulliano Rovellis operation. They won a race wth a private aprilia. That must mean something, as aprilia non factory bikes usually struggle for podiums due to lack of up

Jonathan Rea is probably one of the few riders that actually tell it like it is!! If he says anything a bit negative then that is is how it is!! What is he expected to say other than what he thinks!! It is a well know fact that the Honda Jonathan rides has had major problems in the past, so obviously any improvements they are trying to make are taking a bit of time to perfect! This is all Jonathan is saying!
