MotoGP Argentina: Another clean sweep weekend for Marquez

The young Spaniard didn’t have the race all his own way, however, with a fierce battle in the opening stages seeing him back in seventh after a poor start, while Jorge Lorenzo cleared...

What ? Bayliss never raced on a 800cc

True, the 990cc GP6 was certainly a wonderful bike, Bayliss' only career GP victory and Capriossi 229 points 3 wins 5 podiums can prove it. But the 800cc GP7 was a completely different bike, and nowhere near the versatility of a GP6 . No comparison can be objectively drawn between both bike.

I'm not trying to be but ... but ... put a CBR600 engine in a CBR1000 and see if it's a different bike ???   I'm on the same page as Druids on this one.

I have to say I did not notice the poor handling in 07 but what I did notice was the phenomenal speed down the straight ... it went past the Yamaha like it was going backwards.  I don't accept Ahab's take that the speed advantage was negated after a couple of races.   It was faster the whole season ...  in 08 and 09 the speed advantage was reeled in  making he who shall not be mentioned ride harder culminating in his many front end crashes ... that's when the bad handling became noticeable.     IMO that is !

Love the fact the 07 bike wobbled round the last corner like a drunk pig then managed to slaughter factory spec RCVs and M1s down the straight, fark the Duc must have had at least 30% more power

Ducati

stole a march on the Jap's in 07 .. it was reported in MCN around June 06 that Ducati had already rolled out an 800 in anticipation of the 800 series and were already testing it.  HRC and Yamaha did not roll out their 800's till the end of the season and were 6 months behind on development.
