I just don't see much return on that investment....now if they had developed a 6 speed, light weight, durable off road bike with great suspension and price point, they might be selling lots of them, making a big dent in the orange bikes sales. Beta and Sherco in the meantime have gone to that niche market which seems to be the market with future potential.

Why not just watch others develop new technology and then apply it to your own products like so many others do.
Because the Asian market is mad about MGP. Even if they're just straddling 125s and scooters, they want to see their tank badge on race day. In that context they do see on Monday what races on Sunday.

And they don't want to be ranked behind Mahindra.

Rossi for the win and another good year without that punk-ass Aussie.

Does that help?

Tires might be a big part of the story for the Open Class this year.

Customer Hondas looked slow. Wonder if the laptimes released last fall were just a marketing trick, don't want to think so. Or yet another bike that Stoner was massively faster than any other rider?

I thought Suppo's comments in the GP One article were very defensive.

I am glad to see Aleix closer to the front, but I went back and checked. Last year at Sepang in FP3 (I figure that was the last real practice that all the bikes pushed it in) he was 1.6 seconds back, yesterday he was 1.3 secs back from the leader. So it is not like the Yamaha is really much closer to the front then the ART bike was.
Obviously it is day one and everyone will go faster so let's see how the gap changes.

Lots of guys are on brand new bikes, both new to them and new in general. Lots can happen. But I wouldn't expect things to look too different either.
