Ryuichi Kiyonari in line for shock MotoGP deal in 2013

Triple British Superbike champion Ryuichi Kiyonari could be make a shock switch to MotoGP in 2013 to spearhead development of Honda’s new RC213V 1000cc production racer. HRC plans to sell production versions of its factory RC213V prototype machine in 2014 at a price of around £800,000 in a bid to offer an affordable and competitive alternative to the current CRT machines.

No one is expecting Honda to play fair so others can beat them, not nor should they be able to dictate what goes on to thr series either. Theyre threatening to leave the series if Carmelo goes through with the cost cutting measures that dont suit them.

Have a read of the link BCB put up and the last Rossi link for the interview with Nakamoto, it doesnt paint a good picture of HRC and their tactics

Ostensibly for safety purposes

But that was a yellow herring wasn't it Miss Stiggy. There were NO safety issues raised by the riders about the type 31 tyre.

All the 33 has done is provide chatter, and in fact is probably on balance a more unsafe tyre than the 31.

When Stoner describes his RCV 213 as probably the best bike he's ridden turning into one of the worst all due to the change of tyre construction, that is pretty damning.

Yet again you miss just what HRC are doing for the sport CCB. By mass producing their Moto3 machines they hope to raise a new generation of racers. We all benefit from that. Who else is out there supporting road racing to this degree?

Mildly interesting Nostro ...

No facts to back that view up though Nostro - no credability - no change - nothing much at all.

Ok then Nostro

Buy selling shit loads of their Moto 3 bikes and making big profits they hope to bring on the next generation.

All sniping aside, what is wrong with trying to discuss where Moto GP has gone wrong, and what is required to make it a more competitive series again? It appears Nakamoto and Honda are trying to dictate and pull the strings to suit their own personal needs.

Nakamoto made the tyre refference and may have a point, as you appear to be agreeing with.

IMO allow each manufacturer a tyre the suits their individual  bikes but allow it to be available to everyone if they want to try use it. No overnight speciasl. Yet you turn that point into a Rossi hate fest?? why?

Really you old Sow?

did you miss the bit where I mentioned the riders were happy with the initial generation of 2012 Bridgestone rubber. Do you remember them all praising their quicker warm up time and superior feel? Yet what do we get in the later half of the season with the 33's? Lots of complaining from all quarters about the amount of chatter they induce. Safer my arse.

... I'm far from interested in your well-worn arse - more interested in facts.

Fewer crashes/rider non-starts than 2011 because of 'cold tyre crashes'?

Yeah, I think so - and the facts agree that you're wrong.

That's exactly what Rossi got his Uncle Carmelo bars and his Bridgestone pals to do. In the early part of this season they introduced the more flexible construction type 33 tyre for no good reason.

Paranoid springs to mind nostro..
