Exclusive: Casey Stoner to test factory Honda in Japan

Double world champion Casey Stoner will make a dramatic return to MotoGP action next month when he tests a factory Honda RC213V at the Twin Ring Motegi track in Japan, MCN can reveal. The outspoken but blindingly fast Australian, who retired from MotoGP immediately after the final race of 2012 in Valencia last November, will take part in a two-day test...

Sorry Wosi, you've got the scatters again! What was it you didn't agree with?

unfortunately for you wosi

the facts/statistics are inexorable. 23 wins by Stoner on an 800 Ducati, 1 by anyone else, and that rider was not Valentino Rossi, and was in a wet race which Stoner didn't need to win.

I personally think that the 800 Ducati was peculiarly unsuited to Valentino, and peculiar overall, but can argue differently if you insist. The fact is that the world and his wife (unfortunately including Valentino, JB, Carmelo, and you) thought the Ducati up until 2011 was a fast bike which could be easily fixed. You were all wrong, the 2011 bike like the 2010 bike which preceded it was a fundamentally flawed unstable bike. The 2009 bike, carbon fibre and all, didn't seem particularly problematic, for Stoner anyway, when he was healthy.

Yeah DF..and only 4 in 2009, followed by 3 in the end of the year when Lorenzo was playing safe for a title and Val & Dani were coming back from injury..just like Rossi's had it easy the last few races and it means fk all, eh?

You Drongos think he'd have been winning races 2011 and 2012 on Preziosi's CF bastard?'t as queer as Stoner folk.


Oh and Bobby boy..I think you know what I mean about comparing DNS against DNF.

It is you against the world.

I didn't stated all those facts. they are from FIM, Gizmag, YouTube, Wikipedia and Stoner himself ('People keep talking about the Ducati's top speed, but they forget that the bike goes round corners brilliantly as well, it's an allround brillant package")

and "Casey Stoner was able to consistently ride away from Valentino Rossi " Exactly what I said... Rossi had a problem... & that's what you remember...

you conveniently forgot the rest of the phrase bud: "...along the main straight of the Losail circuit, leaving the Yamaha team baffled by their lack of power in comparison."

Now we have to believe that what everyone accepted as a fact, that the 2007 Ducati with Bridgestones was the best bike by far is crap because Hedgihog5 says it... Nope, sorry.

It's facts vs fiction and you are talking to conaisseurs my spiky friend.

"It is you against the world."

Nope... what he said about Stoner pulling away from Rossi was perfectly correct... why was Rossi up to 11kph slower than a satellite Yamaha?

"leaving the Yamaha team baffled by their lack of power in comparison"

I'm sure they were... note it says the YAMAHA team... not Honda... not Suzuki... not Kawasaki... exactly as I said. Ducati didn't have a significant advantage... Yamaha were slower than the rest of the field, & Rossi was all too often slower than his satellite team members.

It's facts & the rest of the world against your interpretation of the myth... :wink:

I might hit the crack pipe every now and again..

..but even through my drug addled gaze, I'm savvy to your underhanded games Wosi. You've told us nothing about the 'so called' real reasons why HRC would want Casey back. Just a load of lob-sided guff that only means something to the yellow pantie brigade. C'mon, what's the real reason?...

It's Nakamoto CHR

He wants him back. He probably feels a little guilty at how he let Casey go off the rails after the Sachsenring.
