The Honda and the Ducati appear to be mirror images of one another, the RC213V loving left-handed tracks, losing the chatter which plagues the bike when the corners go right, while the Desmosedici has no feel when the track goes left.


Honda:
Left turns - no chatter
Right turns - chatter

Ducati:
Left turns - no feel
Right turns - some feel

so weird...

Best race of the year by far...the final half lap was :bowdown: Once Stoner is gone, I think Pedrosa will step up to fill the gap...seems to be living in Stoner's shadow before that...

It's a newly formed satellite ride...thoughts?

I think it's career suicide... :(

His results this year on a top bike has been career suicide, the Duc Lite ride is clinging on for dear life.

He has been a mixed bag of bad luck and bad moves on track...:hs:

I still think he has it though...maybe he's like a Sato or a Kovi...once the pressure is off, he'll bounce back and be really fast. Only time will tell.

Ducaudi must have some deep wallets...
the Yamaha which is arguably the best bike on the grid just lost 2 of their riders to Ducati, which is the worst bike on the grid (not counting crt's)... but even then, all 3 of their salaries probably cost as much as Rossi's, so who knows :rofl:

I'm mostly excited to see what Iannone can do, I've been following him the most in Moto2... Marc doesn't interest me much... another pocket spaniard that's fast... yawn...

2013 won't be a barn stormer year, but at least they'll have 4 factory bikes with very capable riders providing feed back... I think 2014 is when they'll start moving up... 2013 is going to be a wash for them...

looking at their rider line up, it makes sense what they're doing...
Hayden has the history and knows the bikes for the past X years
Dovi is a front end rider like Rossi, so they have at least a comparable riding style to base off of
Spies is used to 1000cc bikes and adapts quickly
Iannone is probably the closest to "stoner" riding style, no so much as agressive, but more of a win it or bin it style... he's not afriad to man handle the bike and he's young enough to not know better...
