Obviously he bounces better then his older rivals and was certainly consistent in the actual races... but that kind of frequency can't be maintained or next year its just a matter of time!
Remember MM93 was a rookie.

Lorenzo also took a few trips to the orbit on his rookie season.

He was also the only one of the three to not have a injury that seriously hindered performance during the season.

Hopefully he figures out how to ride fast and crash less.

Young bounces well. It's when you get a little older that things start breaking.

Watching the video of MM as a 'yute' shows that he has always had the same problem. He can't reach the ground with the bike standing straight up.

That's a strange looking crankcase. What beside the sump could be placed that far below the crankshaft ?

something to do with a seamless gearbox? That is a shot in the dark, wild speculation and probably altogether incorrect. But isn't that what forums and the silly season are for?

The transmission? Wild guess. The 70 degree Husabergs have their crank way up high for mass centralization.

That's my guess. With the cylinder leaning to the back of the bike it seems right.

Oil-tank for dry-sump. The trans is behind the crank (check sprocket position).

For sure. Maximum oil capacity, dry sump. Inlet at front, exhaust to the rear, offset rod, (as in Yam YZF's). Probably reverse direction crank as well.

Bloody hell Jack! Did you jump ship to KTM too soon?

Honda just HATE losing......never forget it.

First year in the "bigs" for MM. He may be fast but remember, he is still learning.

How much did JLo wad it up when he first came to MotoGP? Seems that he was doing agricultural riding quite a bit- I just re-watched "Fastest".

Correct. Ducatis and Honda MotoGP bikes are the same.
