motogp.com · Laverty discusses his move up to MotoGP™ with PBM

Interesting interview

It wasn't clear to me that there would be so many Kawasaki-FTR CRTs this year (Colin Edwards, Claudio Corti, Héctor Barberá and Hiroshi Aoyama), and I think it's interesting that Laverty is going to run the Magneti Marelli ECU this year with his british built bike +Aprilia engine, while Hernandez is riding the full ART bike (with their ECU).

I didn't realize there were so many Kawasakis either. I hope it goes well.

Will be interesting to see if the spec MM ECU is any good for the "segment"... plus, they'll have softer tyres.

One can hope

BTW, don't know if you'd noticed. I hadn't! But the team/rider list is up on motogp.com

Obviously not with updated livery, but nice to see

That video is very cool.

Definitely looking forward to the 2013 season in a major way. Yamaha's marketing people sure know how to market Vale!

Hopefully Spies can have a good season with Ducati.
I like the bloke and wish him well next year.
He's too good a rider not to succeed in MotoGP. Hopefully his Ducati will be up to the task.

That's hilarious considering that Lin Jarvis made it known he was not amused about Vale coming back.

Oh well, its advertising.

I do wear a helmet, as a matter of fact, along with other protective gear. But, the fact that you “certainly hope” I wear a helmet is so condescending it makes me want to ride a tricycle completely naked doing doughnuts in your front yard screaming Beastie Boys lyrics at midnight. Trust me, you do not want that. My buttocks are extremely pale and unsightly, especially in moonlight.

Unlike Jarvis, they seem to know where their bread is buttered.

Not having a main title sponsor for a couple of years...
