Honda contemplating RCV1000R revamp for 2015

Honda has conceded it might have to radically change its new production Honda RCV1000R package to make it appealing for potential customers in 2015.The RCV1000R is Honda’s Open class project, designed to be a cheaper but competitive alternative to the Factory prototype RC213V.Costing around £1m to purchase outright, the production bike doesn’t feature technology like a seamless shift gearbox or...

it's just politics

this is what I hate about motor GP it's nothing to do with the rider it's all to do with politics and who Benefits the most I know MM is very good but I thought it was very strange why they change the rulebook the day he graduated to MotoGP everybody should have the same material or very close it just makes some people look better and the Spanish are benefiting let's just be honest there is only two teams Yamaha and Honda three seats are taken by Spanish riders And when is an Italian give everybody the same ECU taking away the seamless gearbox only have two compound of tires for everybody this would save money makes the racing more interesting and I'm sure there would be a different outcome but I know this would never happen

 Spec tyres, like engine Allocations and Fuel Allowances do nothing to lower costs. Ask yourself which is cheaper developing a chassis to work with a specific tyre or devloping rubber that works with your chassis. As all current Manafacturers have their own seamless technology what would be the point in banning a technology that has already had the development costs spent on it? the best we can hope is that by 2016 and the return to one set of regulations some of the more exotic technolgy may have filtered down to what is currently the Open Class. Yes the manafacturers will always have an edge (supposedly) the seemless gearbox is only worth tenths but thats not what we're talking about with the RCV1000 we're talking about an embarrising lack of grunt from a Manafacturer that markets itself on its ability to build an engine

Politics is life

But all these Spanish riders, with the exception of A.Espaghettiho are all world champions. The multiple world champ's have bagged the best factory bikes. That's the way of the world. Honda supplying a gutless customer bike is a different issue.

Honda met the design brief requested by Ezpeleta. Yamaha cheated and the result of their underhanded dealings with the blessing of DORNA will be borne out when they fit 'mysteriously underpowered' M1 engines to Malvern Star Dragstar frames next year.

Despite the oohs and aahs, their attempt to look good this year has so far been a dismal failure and they deserve every fkn bit of it.

Open class

Aleix E , isn't doing much more than he did on th Aprilia ,Id like to have seen what Aprilia could have done with Aleix and a full on effort by the factory ; pnuematic valves , seamless gear change , the lot , but the Japanese saw off any threat of that scenario

Conspiracy theory

Funny how Aleix Spaghettio has lost his pace since Qatar ..... was he perhaps too much of  a threat to the factory team ???     Only asking !
