What's MM's riding style, pushing the front till it cooks?

I think the one year deal might be to move up to the Moto2 team? Read something along those lines.

Cant believe I'm saying this but maybe the Honda is bad and MM is just so good that he can still take it to victory  :pot: Was his brother and Moto2 champion not stone last on the grid this past weekend ?

The bike was developed for MM's riding style; which is clearly very different to everybody else who rides the Honda.
The same was true for the Ducati Stoner won on.

Seems its true. Only a one year deal.

It's all over the news feeds now, and it is really great news. That is an exceptional team. There is a whole series on YouTube called Building Success which is a brilliant behind the scenes look at how the team was built and is run.

One year Moto3.  If he does well enough for their liking he will move to their Moto2 team in 2022.

Just also seen that Remy Gardner has signed for the red Bull KTM Ajo Moto 2 team for next year.

To finish first , first one must finish

Unfortuantely 93 has been on the ragged edge for a long long time and has fallen off countless times, at some point its going to debilitate you. Simple as that.

I have also read that Mrs Rossi is expecting, thus the very clever design of his Misano helmet.

What is blue and 46mg  :biggrin:.

A fact indeed.  He is paying a very expensive price though.  I am not a MM93 fan, but I still would have preferred he learned without such a serious injury.

I'm not a fan of him either, so won't be defending him.

However, his riding style is great, more should do it, it's not ballet yet.

I doubt he's got the balls to try the Isle of Man but he's certainly got the heart.

I think the lack of MM has shown how good he really is. The rest may be consistently in the top 6 but he was consistently in the top 1.

On a shit bike, it seems.

His only real targets were the lap records.

I wouldn’t say a shit bike , it was a bike built around him and his riding style , unfortunately unridable by anyone else

How much is really built around him and his riding style?  And why cant Honda built the second bike around the no2’s riding style? So name the parts that’s built around his riding style?

I think more like just a bitch of a bike that he has managed to master. Nakagami on last years model seems to be taming it as well but definitely what Pol deserves to test his talents.

Probably the frame geometry and the engine characteristics, a second bike built around the No.2 would be a completely different machine.

As RR has stated , they change chassis geometry , move the engine up , down , forwards or rear wards which changes balance , moving swingarm position to change the ‘squat’ of the bike on corner exits , engine power delivery , basically the sky is the limit , unfortunately some changes cannot be adjusted out with suspension adjustments .
Currently the Honda is not a particularly user friendly bike and I can guarantee that HRC are working round the clock to fix it for next year .
