Scott Redding closing on Gresini Honda MotoGP deal?

Scott Redding is on the brink of signing a deal to move to MotoGP with Fausto Gresini’s Honda squad in 2014. The agreement would see the rising British star, who is currently leading the Moto2 world championship by 30-points, ride a production Honda RC213V in 2014 before switching to a prototype machine for 2015. Talks between Gresini and Redding were first revealed...

If this bike is....

anywhere near the pace of the factory teams Scotty will push them all the way, I've always thought the Gresni team is the best option outside the factory Honda's...so here's hoping if he can get the ride secured this weekend we will see him in Motogp next season.

He's still young and has time on his hands to make a full factory supported team....small steps, but positive one's I think.  go Scotty....from a yank.

 When you consider that it will have conventional valve springs (as opposed to pneumatic valve actuation), a conventional gearbox (not a seamless quickshift gearbox), Nissin brakes (not Brembo units) and Showa suspension (not Öhlins) I doubt we will see it beating any of the prototypes ( well not  Yamaha or Honda anyway). But without a decent factory ride this is surely the best option. With 5 of these bikes on the grid it will be it's own mini championship within a championship and, i'm sure Honda are hoping,a proving ground for younger riders.  For me the dark horses in the mid-pack battle could be Aprilia. They are working on a pneumatic-valve spring cylinder head for their RSV4 CRT engine. This should give at least another thousand rpm, for a significant performance boost.
