No Honda production bike updates in Jerez

Honda has dashed hopes that its new production RCV1000R machine will get an imminent performance upgrade for the likes of Scott Redding and Nicky Hayden. The Japanese factory’s Open class project has been criticised for lacking acceleration and top speed, with the RCV1000R not equipped with factory spec technology like pneumatic valves and a seamless shift gearbox. Briton Redding and ex-MotoGP world...

Jerez

I think it will do just fine at tracks like Jerez and I wouldnt be surprised to see one in Q2 and maybe on the fringe of top 6 in the race if  ridden to its potential

Hayden just got beaten by Aoyama

he's in no position to whinge about the bike! Not one of the four riders has reached the potential of the thing yet. Will they ever? I personally believe only Scott has the ability to extract all that machine has.

Honda

Just sounds like typical Honda arrogance and the usual sell it high, price it high and deliver it low mindset that they are so good at perpetuating.

you carnt argue with facts ..its slow down the straights ..no one says it wont corner ..Honda has a name for speed in moto gp so that's abit tainted now ...why should teams spend serious mular to put confidence in a Honda when Honda wont address their concerns ...just my opinion

Bang for buck

The Open teams are getting plenty.

The other options were the slightly cheaper Avintia or PB route or three x the price satty machines.

What ART? Or as Yamaha said - they had no intention of providing Forward with factory chassis' and certainly will not be 2015.

honda

 Its faster than the ART that Ioda are running, its only being trounced by one of the Forward racing bikes who it appears are fortunate to have a Yamaha frame and it looks to me that like what was previously said the Honda is getting quicker as teams learn to better set it up. 

Last weekend was a good outing on a fast track, it needs more ponies but we should reserve judgement until we come to some of the tracks like Jerez, Sachsonsing and La Mans  as it could really shine there particularly when its comparatively inexpensive compared to the other ptions

You have

qualified riders trying to get all they can out of the bike, which they probably are.  If you don't have enough horsepower you don't have enough horsepower.

I think it comes down to what expectations Honda gave these teams.  Not much point to being allowed 12 engines and freedom to develop if Honda can't be bothered.

Shame on Nicky for allowing Aoyama to pip him on the last corner!

Time to give

Bautista's bike to one of the Open riders.  Why is this guy still in GP?  Why was De Puniet in GP so long?

"Fast when they finish" really doesn't cut it in my opinion.
