If you haven't seen these bikes race in person, you simply don't understand the skill and courage required to ride them. TV doesn't come close to conveying the incredible brutality these machines posess.

Stoner & Marquez riding for Repsol next year * (you heard it here first!)





















* Note: This is wild speculation and probably not true. But I'd sure love to see those two on the same machinery on the same track. It would be epic.

An insider, close to the fledgling H-D MotoGP team, said: “The V-Rod is perhaps the most sporting model we have. The frame is pretty strong and we think our v-twin engine can be developed a little bit more to make it go faster. The new standard ECU unit that will be introduced to all MotoGP teams in 2016 means that we still have a bit of time to work out if the electronics are going to be compatible with our engines.
