H. R. C.

Looks like Honda is going to run a full factory team in WSBK next year with Camier and some Japanese guy.

THAT is interesting. I just found added detail and see that Kyonari (former British Superbike champion) is the 'Japanese guy'. I do wonder whether he still has it at WSB level.

Will also be interesting to see whether there will be a Red Bull team, or more than likely Red Bull will become a lead sponsor similar to their MotoGP relationship. I am reluctant to say this, but I think that Honda might be a few years behind Kawasaki as far as performance and rider ability (Rea and Leon Haslam).

Wish American Honda would come back to MotoAmerica racing....Kawasaki too for that matter.

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

Melandri signed with GRT Yamaha for 2019. Cortese will partner him on the R1.

Now that we are talking about 2019 world superbike.
What is MV's plan? Are they out of the WSBK season for 2019? Havent seen any confirmation about that.(YET)

World supersport is getting a refreshing boost with kawasaki entering with their 4 cylinder 636cc but with rpm limiter.
Lets hope they dont start to dominate as much as the superbike does.

That is good news. I think Melandri is too good to be out of contract. The pairing with Cortese should make a strong team if the bikes are up to scratch!!

I think MV could have gotten Melandri> An MV employee though they had retained him for 2019 but MV was hot on the Moto2 effort. I like MV in Moto2 but business wise IMHO people relate to WSBK more than Moto2. HRC... Honda was already throwing money at the CBR1000RR hand over fist. Honda even subcontracted Cosworth. Its an Old design let Honda have anouther 100cc instead of penalizing Kawasaki for doing well. Pentalizing the top team has never worked before it just pisses off manufacturer . Kawasaki just spends more money in race engineering Helping out older designs or twins keeps field competitive. HRC hasn't been the same since Mr Honda died.

I think you might be forgetting that HRC has been targeting its resources to Moto GP. There have been yearly advances in the RC213V, and Pedrosa aside, even the efforts of #35 Crutchlow and more recently, #30 Nakagima, support that.

Granted, there's been a dismal showing in WSB and BSB (British Superbikes) but the Honda is a proven machine in the right team. The Australian Superbike series was won by Troy Herfoss (Penrite Honda CBR1000RR) and then there's the Honda France endurance successes.

Like many, I look forward to Honda's renewed vigour for WSB although I think the choice of Kiyonari might prove to be unwise. I was a rap for him in the early to mid 2000s, but I think there are now others who have a greater craving for success.

Mr Honda was a motorcycle racer before he was a motorcycle manufacturer, He spent at least an hour or more at HRC everyday. motorcycle racing was Mr Hondas Passion, You cant expect HRC couldn't fill a void like that no one could . IMO His passion for racing is one of the reasons Honda products are such high quality .Racers always want there bke to be the best it can be and this attitude overflowed into his his outlook of the quality he expected of his products.
