Hope Rea and Haslam dont pick up many injuries overriding this honda. Most of crashes posters would agree that hondas major efford goes into moto gp
and a low percentage of efford in wsbk.
In view of the above comments the championship will not be won by honda. Maybe they have their eyes on 2014?.

If the only electrics were the ones that created a spark, there would have been none of these problems, i say bin them & lets get back to the best rider winning.

Honda's modus operandi is to build 200 homologation specials out of unobtanium - a bike that no street rider can get his hands on even if he has the money - then sell loads of shoddy superbikes to people who think they bear a relation to their race winning SBK because it shares a Honda logo. Turning a Fireblade into a race winner is making a silk purse out of a sow's ear but if you have the budget, it's possible to achieve the alchemist's goal of turning lead into gold these days. Of course it requires an advanced physics lab with technicians and the catch is that it costs a lot more than the gold is worth.
