Tom’s Tech Treasures: A Close-Up View Of The MotoGP Bikes At The Jerez Test – Part 1

Honda RC213V steering damper
David Emmett: Honda have switched the location of their steering damper to above the tank. It's a conventional damper (the rules say electronic control of the steering damper is not allowed), but it has been relocated because of the change to the air intake, which now goes straight through the steering head.
Joan Mir’s Suzuki GSX-RR
David Emmett: This is the 2018 version of the chassis. The later version doesn't have the carbon sections glued to the upper part of the frame. Suzuki staff said that working with the carbon sections had allowed them to work on varying stiffness, and they weren't needed any longer.

全日本はどうする?・・・・全日本振り返り⑤

[GP spectator] – 01/07 22:40

モリワキがJ-GP2からJSBへと
目標を変えて、8耐制覇を掲げた時に
モリワキをよく知っているであろう方から
また中途半端に目標の途中で投げ出す
みたいな書き込みがあったのを思い出す。
モリワキがJSBクラスに移って2年
結果的に昨年の最終戦で念願だった全日本優勝は
成し遂げたものの、8耐制覇という目標は
達成できず、今季は世界進出となりそうです。
全日本の活動を継続するかどうかは正式には
何も発表されていませんが、もし走るとしても
鈴鹿ラウンド限定とか、かなり限定的なものになるんじゃないかな?
いかんせんWSBフル参戦となると、スタッフも
そっちにかなり割かれることになるだろうし、
WSBで走るとなれば、清成さんは8耐もモリワキじゃなく
HRCで出てくる可能性が高いしね。
まあ、8耐制覇を目標に掲げつつ、タイヤがピレリ
っていう時点で、どこまで勝算があったのか正直
わからないけど、雨が降りでもしない限り勝ち目は無かった。
ただピレリが予想以上に、献身的にサポートをしてくれたのは
ビックリしたけどね。
結局、この2年間のプロジェクトも目立った形での
結果を出すことなく、尻切れ的に終わるってことなのかな・・・?


Four Predictions For 2019: The Most Competitive Field Yet Means More Winners, More Intra-team Tension, And Thoughts Of Withdrawal

[MotoMatters.com | Kropotkin Thinks – … that old ideas can get a new lease of life when things change] – 01/04 09:02

You would think that after writing about what I got wrong in my predictions last year, I would not be so foolish as to try to make predictions again for the 2019 season. As it turns out, I am that foolish, so here is a list of things I expect to happen in the coming year.
2019 certainly looks very promising for world championship motorcycle racing, in just about every class in both MotoGP and WorldSBK. A range of changes mean the racing should be closer and more competitive. Cutting the MotoGP grid from 24 to 22 bikes, and having the Petronas Yamaha team replace the underfunded Aspar squad, means there are more competitive bikes on the grid.
Ducati will field only GP19s and GP18s, and the GP18 is a much better machine than the GP17. Honda will field three 2019 RC213Vs, and a 2018 bike for Takaaki Nakagami, and the fact that Nakagami was fastest at the Jerez MotoGP test last November suggests that it, too, is good enough to run at the front. Yamaha, likewise, will field three factory-spec bikes, with only rookie Fabio Quartararo on a 2018-spec machine. Suzuki made big steps forward in 2018, and have a more powerful bike for 2019.
It’s not just in MotoGP either. In Moto2, the new T……


Dani Pedrosa Breaks Collarbone, KTM Testing Derailed

[MotoMatters.com | Kropotkin Thinks – … that old ideas can get a new lease of life when things change] – 01/10 06:17

Dani Pedrosa’s career as test rider for KTM has gotten off to an unlucky start. The Spaniard has suffered another broken collarbone, and will require surgery and a long recovery process before he can start testing again.
Pedrosa’s injury is a legacy of the many previous times he has broken his collarbone. The right collarbone is severely weakened after being broken twice before, and having surgery to fit plates. That has left him with a so-called sclerotic lesion on the collarbone, which means that bone growth in the collarbone is very slow. That, and a lack of blood flow to the bone, has left him with osteoporosis, and a weakened collarbone.
Just how weakened is clear from the fact that Pedrosa managed to break the bone without any particular physical impact. He had broken it as a result of ‘a gesture of strength’, he said in a press release, by which he presumably means a sudden and strong movement. 
That endemic weakness means Pedrosa faces a long recovery process. He is to undergo treatment with stem cells to help promote bone growth and strengthen the bone, to prevent a recurrence.
