BSG but Nakagami will not win on that honda unless he has F-16 technology and shoots the riders ahead of him with missles lol. marquez is also so young he could be winning titles for the next ten years .

Nakagami is the next fastest FACTORY Honda rider and he is 2.5 seconds down. What happens when Honda loses Marquez?


Quartrarro has had a great rookie season but nothing compared to Marquez . Marquez won ? 12? races in his rookie season ? and against an top of form Rossi and Lorenzo.

The 2013 chassis had less horsepower to deal with, Marquez was a GOAT from day 1 in MotoGP, AND Honda went back to the 2013 chassis in 2014,2015 and 2016. That was unheard of then being its considered a failure to have to go backwards Nigel I would be far less critical if Honda came out and said … The horsepower increases in MotoGP has caused unexpected chassis problems for the Honda MotoGP program and for the other manufactures also . Thankfully we have the best MotoGP rider on the grid which is the reason for our continued success... Instead Honda makes statement that there engineering department developed the best bike in MotoGP and this is the reason for Hondas success not the specific riding talents of Marc Marquez. Then Honda wonders why Marquez manager comes out with statement that Marquez will be looking to change manufacturers at the end of his current contract at the end of the 2020 season . KTM and Yamaha are also struggling to have chassis development catch up to the Horsepower increases but they treat there riders with more respect. KTM and Yamaha seem to be trying hard to fix the problem and do not have the egotistical attitude of Honda . So the Moto Press is much more forgiving .


BTW has anyone else noticed the Ducati has increased acceleration but the KTM REALLY has improved in acceleration! The KTM might be the quickest bike in MotoGP. The KTM midcorner speed is lacking but then it leaps off the corners.

To all MotoGP riders/teams . Please refrain from the tactic of block passing and then braking . Years ago a factory AMA Superbike rider named Fred Merkel stopped his bike on the end of a corner after a race to do a burn out . A VERY talented Flat track rider turned road racer named Bubba Shubert came around the bend a roughly 90 mph on cool down lap and ran into the back of merkel doing his burn out Shubert was a vegetable the rest of his life due to head injuries. BTW Shubert was a prospect for MotoGP factory Honda ride .He was an exceptional rider as a multi time flat track champion for Honda and was a contender for AMA Superbike championship from the first time he ever even road raced . So anyone can be hurt by another rider stopping/drastically slowing on track.

Aragon is a total point and shoot track so marquez should dominate and Lorenzo should be roughly dead last lol hell Espargro just high sided and it looks as if he has hurt right wrist . I like the KTM effort being they have the courage of there convictions to go there own way with there steel trellis chassis and a unique chassis geometry.


BTW.... BGS..What is the B2 Stealth technology are you talking about on Nakagamis Honda ?

well, should be another boring race, I wish Marquez would go to another manufacturer just to spice things up a bit.

Ian if marquez goes to Ducati or Suzuki he will win even more easily . Yamaha and KTM Roughly by the same margin. Quatrarro on the Ducati could give Marquez a run for his money. Did you see the RCV213V go into a tank slapper on Marquez in Free Practice 4?


Tank Slapper and MotoGP should never be in the same sentence . I have been following Gran Prix/MotoGP since the late 1070s and I have NEVER seen chassis development SO far behind Power Output/tire grip. IMHO Race engineers thought they could solve Horsepower overpowering chassis with electronics and it just didn't work. (Kawasaki H2 owners know that electronics do not fix a flimsy chassis LOL=Yes I own a 2016 H2)

I do keep wondering how you know all this information.
Marquez more easily gets his wins on Suzuki or Ducati. And rookie Quartararo on Ducati also a winner...
Where do you get this information? Or is this just made up stuff?

Cause until Marquez or Quartararo swaps manufactorer everything you say is 110% speculation.
Bequase you'll never know how a rider adapts to a new bike.

All easily said while laying on the couch eating a bag of chips.

Well... he is following it already for almost 1000 years. That is the reason he knows.
