    BTW guys was nt the 3 cylinder Inmotec Spanish GP bike supposed to be tested in these tests ?

    And I have a slight feeling 2012 could see KR stuff back !
    Me too in the bandwagon

    Interesting video if KR stuff can come back...


    There goes Biaggi (red), there goes rossi (repsol)

    Edit: I mean I am not saying two-strokes should come back but what if the privateer teams (aka CRT, Claiming Rule Team) could come up with an engine/prototype which can outrun everybody else on the track really interesting, ain't it?

    Stoner has indeed got very comfortable on that Honda, pretty quickly..

    But.. whats up with Tony Elias, he's slower than Rookie Karel Abraham on a bike he's familiar with!

    moreover since rossi has been banned to comment on his ducati debut by Yamaha, we don't know exactly whats going through his mind after his first ride on the desmodicci

    You have to wait till April 2011 to see who is where. Though when winter session starts (Feb?), it should be an indicator of things to come.
    I agree and understand that very well...

    It's just that he's too far off the pace, almost 2.6sec slower & he'd raced RCV before.

    Winter Session will be held on Feb 1,2 and 3.

    When is their scheduled next practice post feb or in feb?.

    What do the riders do in winter break?
    That was Toni on RC212V.

    First practice in 2011 is sched for Feb 1,2 and 3 @ Sepang, Malaysia. Then it should be in Jerez or somewhere in March, 2-3 weeks before the first race.

    Riders take a break in Winter. No testing (Officially banned until feb).

    Can you move last (or last two) pages of post of the 2010 thread to this one and lock the old one, if possible.
    I will let the old thread be for reference. If I lock it, it gets lost in the quagmires of the infinite threads that exist!
    The Wheel was a great invention; Two Wheels with a Motor in between was even better!

    Well Vale isn't supposed to talk but Preziosi is....

    find his comments on day 1 and day 2 here

    ?Exciting day? for Preziosi as Rossi works on 2011 Ducati engine | The Official MotoGP Website

    Preziosi: ?I think we?ll go with the big bang? | The Official MotoGP Website

    His first comment when he lifted his visor up was a positive one about the power delivery and then he gave some impressive technical details. We certainly have a lot to do to adapt the bike to his riding style but it is really nice and very interesting to work on something like that.
    Discussing requirements put forward by Rossi after his 141 laps across both days on the bike, Preziosi said: “More turning and more confidence with the front, so we have to work in that direction. I would also like to change the (chassis) stiffness, weight distribution, and geometry.”
    Rossi’s best lap of 1’33.761 left him 15th on the timesheet by the close of the day on Wednesday, and when asked what it was like to work with the 31 year-old Preziosi said: “Unbelievable. For me to be calm when you are at the top of the timesheet is easy, but to be calm when you are not at the top means you really are a great rider.”

    those winglets look huge on the carbon black bike...

    look like training wheels in the corners.
