The 2016/2017 MotoGP Off-Season News, Rumors and Other Info Thread

The sun has set on another MotoGP season. Who would have thought we would have seen 9 winners in one season? The season saw several riders sign off their rides. Lorenzo will be giving the Ducati a try next season. Vinales will be Rossi's partner at Yamaha. KTM is throwing their hat into the racing ring. The riders have a year of Michelin under their belts. What will the next season hold for us, the fans?

I am still hoping that one of these seasons soon BMW will get into MotoGP.

RIP Nicky Hayden! You will be missed.

I am puzzled, they are using wings and fins when its banned next year.

I have Cystic Fibrosis, and yes I ride a Triumph Daytona 675.

Next season should be pretty good. Judging by the first day of the test, Vinales is on fire on the Yamaha. I'm excited to see how the rookies will fare next season (both riders and the guys in orange). I hope Suzuki and Ducati can catch up Yamaha and Honda. And yeah, BMW in Motogp would be epic especially considering how they released their first true superbike and dominated the field from the get go.

All in all, it's super exciting to see how after so many years of shit racing every year has been getting better and better. I think this season was the most exciting and the most diverse I've seen yet since I started following the sport 14-15 years ago. End of March can't come soon enough!

I hate how quick people want to press charges... even quicker when the person has money. Its a bruise ... get over it. I would understand if she had a real injury.

RIP Nicky Hayden! You will be missed.

Really cool that a street bike on steroids (to put it mildly) outpaced MotoGP machines. I was looking at the time sheets in that article and don't get why none of the top riders are participating in this test.
