Yeah, I saw his interview and he was soooooo trying hard not to bash the bike, but still said enough. I am sure Honda Mfg. flipped their lids when they saw the post interview.

I agree that interview was very bad for Honda. I hope they figure it out, we need more competition in WSBK.

Don't bite the hands that feeds you
He was being very economical with his words, it would be a sizeable meal ticket to punch out on.

all that being said this bike is completely in line with all the stupid stuff Honda has been doing the past few years. Is the fire blade a new bike or is it the same bike as the 08 just pimped up enough to make it be called new?

either way this is 180˚ out of phase with the old honda from the 90's and early 00's.

the glory days of honda would have never put this slightly updated bike back on the market and tried to sell it as something spectacular . or the old honda would have been flawless maybe to a fault , but Honda used to be the king of making bikes so perfect they were almost seeming boring. now they are so boring they seem outdated on day one.
Amen brother. With all Honda's MotoGP experience and general motorcycle and racing experience this is the best they could put together? LAME.
Thanks from youngR

In this aspect, I have to give credit to company like Ducati and pushing other company to do same.

That's scary! I've had a similar ontrack incident but thankfully no wreck but almost got rear ended cause I had to keep the clutch in and brake so no hand to throw up. Going from 170mph downshifting from 6th to 4th...scary experience for sure.

Guy's last words about the bike not liking him or John says a lot. He really didn't say much at all but his face told the real story.
