Kawasaki has the oldest engine design in WSBK and Ducatis V4R is now Down on power yet Dorna rejects there request to rescind rpm. The Ducati V4R was penalized for having too much power (isnt the goal of a manufacturer to make as much power as they can? it is RACING?)
NOW the new Honda CBR1000RR-R has the most power in WSBK yet NO PENALTY??? What a surprise?
Dornas letter head should read........DORNA, A SUBSIDIARY OF HRC

BTW Kawasaki was penalized for winning too much with best rider. How dare those cheating bastards. They should have left Johnny Rea ride with Honda.

AGAIN>>> If Dorna would keep there hands off, The Kawasaki and Ducati would be on par with the new Hondas power and would make better/closer racing .In Racing Performance is like water... it finds its own level because race engineers all end up using same techniques. The ONLY thing you have to handcap is engine designs . Twins/triples/ 4 cylinders, and race engineers can get very close to even when handicapping using displacement.. ....FYI.. before someone crys Ducati had advantage with 1200cc twin vs 1000cc 4cylinder =200cc DOESNT make up for the inherent advantages of 4 cylinder vs a twin. Ducati just made the BEST twins in the history of twins and they recognised that most of the TRACKS where tight with short straits where Bottom end HP/Torque worked best . DUCATI actually where DOWN on top end speed yet won races as the higher HP 4cylinder bikes couldnt catch the twins before the short straits ended.

LCR Honda might have a seat for ALEX but thats another insult as its obviously a move to placate screwing over Marc Marquez .

I think you might be a tad premature here. Wasn't Ducati's rev limit reduced after two race weekends?

As the Honda hasn't yet raced, you can't reasonably suggest that it should be nobbled as the power figures are merely 'on paper' figures and not shown as a result in race conditions.

It's all good though, because we have gone from, 'Honda has the worst handling chassis and only MM93 can ride it,' TO 'Honda has the most power and should be penalised.'(y)

It was but Dorna had announced before the Ducati had even raced or tested that if it was as fast as reported they where going to cut RPM . And they did of course . Dorna has said nothing about restricting the CBR1000RR-R. I dont think ANYONE should be penalized for engineering a better/faster bike . It is RACING? Last time i checked they are SUPPOSED to go as fast as possible. Dorna will not lift penalties for Kawasaki/Ducati and wont penalize Honda under same circumstance .

Point is dorna was hot to penalize Ducati before it raced but not honda . Dorna penalizes Kawasaki for? winning? because of having good rider?Which is in Dornas rulebookbeleive it or not=ludicrise. DORNA SHOULD APPLY RULES FAIRLY IS MY POINT.
