The 2015/2016 MotoGP Off-Season News, Rumors and Other Info Thread

Welll... After a glorious MotoGP season that ended on a dark note with controversy, drama, and allegations of impropriety, the post season has come. Truthfully, after the way the 2015 season ended, it is hard to be motivated to start this thread. Still, an off-season of new developments awaits us.

There are a lot of new factors on the horizon. More fuel, new tires, new electronics and strained relationships. The series has never been so fractured during my time watching. How will the 2015/2016 off-season shake out? Will the series lose some of its fan base over the way 2015 ended? How will the rider's relationships transform? What impact will the new rules have? Will we even be watching? A host of unanswered questions.

But does it make the bike more fun to ride?

“For me no, because in the end the higher the level of the bike then the better it is for me. So like this is clear step back. At the beginning you are also a little bit angry on the bike because you think 'f**k! It don't work'
This quote from Rossi surprised me a bit. He used to complain that the bikes have too much electronics and there's less skill involved and now he seems to miss the electronics.

Id love to see him come back. 'Cuz like him or hate him, he's an alien and makes races more interesting. And certainly more competitive.
