Silly Season starts already

Heard lots of news while watching qualifying at Silverstone MotoGP. First story was Bautista has signed with Honda for 2020 WSBK season. Bautista did so on a promise from Honda that they will have a completely new Superbike. I saw Bautista state that he was thinking of going to Honda to ride there new Superbike in 2020. Bautista said Honda promised that he would have an all new Superbike and that it would be ready for the 2020.Bautista Continued saying Honda showed him the new Superbike design and it was very impressed with bike because it was the next level in the Superbike class. IMHO either Honda is blowing smoke up Bautistas ass or Honda has kept Motorcyclings best kept secret. he also stated he was frustrated with the handling of the Ducati 1199 Panigale handling problems.

If I recall correctly interview was on GPone.com. I got a notification email in my mailbox clicked on it and it was Bautista explaining why he was thinking of leaving Ducati and going to Honda .


PS also check Crashnet.com for interview if you want to see it .

Nah, with the greatest respect, that hasn't really been Honda, it's been the media speculators with their 'proposed V4' and the '220 bhp for 2020' and the 'carbon this and carbon that.'

I am fairly sure Honda itself has been (and usually is) quite sly about its proposed releases. Why I say '3 months' is because I have a very close source within a dealership from where I've purchased four bikes, and I have pledged a deposit on the 2020 if it's 'all new'.

From a consumer's perspective, a new Blade is grossly overdue. The current model (and remember I have one) is no more than a dressed up 2008. All other makes have made huge advancements since then and Honda has been left well behind. Still a good bike, but compared to, say, the current Yamaha R1, the Honda is sadly lacking.

Well that just enhances my thoughts and opinion that our commentators of both WSBK & MotoGP are a bunch a tards providing either false information and/or information not explained the right way.

Id like them stepping over to a V4, that would be cool.

When the Honda RC213V was MSRP of 37000/40000$ range I had a spot in my garage all picked out. When the Honda RC213V came out and it was 120,000$ (with performance kit=180HP or 200HP I forget) A Kawasaki H2 went into the garage space A Ducati V4 will also go ingarage when I sort out health issues .


Did you see brad Binder in Moto2 riding like a demon possessed. he is riding The KTM RC16 next year in MotoGP. he could be a real dark horse next year.

A couple of seconds and a third this year indicate he is a solid performer but hardly setting the world on fire in Moto 2

The Marquez domination is more impressive. Fernando and Navarro have shown some real speed. I don't count Luthi with his experience but he has been one of the most consistent.

Something strange is happening in the Baldasari camp. Wins 3 of the first 4 races and hasn't been on the podium since.

Yes. Agree in full. Even more impressive when we remember that Morbidelli (same team of course) was all over AM last year. This must surely go down as AM getting his head together, or most likely that he is so well tuned to the Triumph.

Same, perhaps, could be said of Gardner who is your version of our Sam Lowes.

Yeh I agree on Gardner. He seems a little desperate at the moment which is causing some silly moments.
