Its real that Ducati are running mass tuned dampers under seat? If so thats quite clever.Cuky wrote: ↑Sat Nov 20, 2021 7:33 pmSo after season ended we have seen 2-day test session at Jerez on Thursday and Friday. Honda was there with 2 or 3 versions of a brand new 2022 bike, Ducati had some big development pieces for their riders, KTM and Aprilia as well. Yamaha and Suzuki had new parts as well, but they aren't as obvious as those previously mentioned.
Bagnia was by far the fastest, Quartararo was the first one behind him. Though times don't really mean a lot in testing sessions and they all had to deal with big winds on both days.
We also saw 5 rookies take on to the track on their MotoGP machines.
And there are big news on Marc Marquez. He's missed last two races of the season as well as this test session because after the crash while training on motocross bike he's been suffering with diplopia (double vision) and because of that he is in no shape to ride a bike. Repsol Honda team boss Puig said that before Christmas Marc will undergo new round of tests and if his situation is not improved then both HRC and Marc will have to decide on what to do. Rumors are that if Marc is not cleared to ride by Christmas that his brother will take over his bike at Repsol team while Iker Lecuona would take his place at LCR team
afaik it will go as planned in 2022. I would very much doubt any cancellation rumors since Ducati will provide the new machine for 2023 and onwards.J.A.W. wrote: ↑Thu Jan 06, 2022 6:15 amAnyone more up with the FIM/Dorna - know if MotoE is still going in 2022?
They were unimpressive to say the least, being slower even than
the dismal Moto3, & just as uninspiring audibly...
The I.o.M. TT has given up on their E-bike race, now that Honda has
proved its point, & the ludicrous 'single lap' event was truly anomalous.
