Wings banned next year.


No more ugly bikes and more drafting.

Yay for common sense. Even better if they were banned immediately.

just curious so dont shoot me down here
why all the hatred, does it really matter, is it causing any harm to anyone by having these on the bike. Other than looking all ugly i dont see the problem.

years ago the wings were around, then they left, there was also the holes in the nose cone fairing was that a problem too

Wings diminish the effectiveness of drafting so racing becomes less tactical and more boring to watch.

The rider behind used to get a full benefit of having less wind hitting his bike, but now that also means less wind on the wings which helps hold the bikes nose down so that the rider can accelerate faster without wheelieing.

Also I think a few riders were complaining about how big the wings on the Ducati were, I'm sure one of the Duc boys hit Marquez with the wings a couple of races back.

It's all about the aesthetics for me. They just look wrong.

Progress boys....progress. These are prototypes testing technology that may eventually find its way to you and me......doesn't raise the price of racing, like the electronics did. I say let the engineers work!

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

IMHO the FIM should have just put a restriction on the size and shape of wings and left it at that . This way everyone gets equal advantage and no one feels like they got the shaft for the work they put into the research.

Yeah because with the wings they may have to brake deeper into the corners, or carry more corner speed, or gas it sooner and harder off the corners in order to pass the guy in front. Definitely boring...
