Was just gonna post this myself. Good review from Chris. The lad can ride. Thatís for sure. As for the Ducati test rider. To get with in 4 secs of a GP Bike. Feckin hell.

I remember reading about Sylvian Guintoli turning up at donnington or oulton Park on a bog stock 1198s when he rode one in WSBK. He rode there number plate, road tires, mirrors and devastated the fast group. Was 3 secs off the BSB lap record. He didnít push any harder as he had to ride home! Did his mag interview and went home! I hate people with talent.
Thanks from Guybrush, Bradoshi, cavlino and 1 others

Well, and of course the most damaging crashes are "I didn't think I was going to make the corner, so I stood it up and ran off the track", then the most horrific crash imaginable happens in the grass or gravel! When it comes to that type of crash, the ever-increasing horsepower of these bikes can be an exacerbating factor as the terminal speed entering the braking zone is much higher with much smaller margin for error.
So with speeds being ever higher and crashes being even slightly less, that indicates to me that the electronics could indeed be saving some people from crashing out there.

Easier to get within 4 seconds at at rack like Valencia given the tight nature of the circuit. At a place like COTA or Silverstone the gap would probably be a lot bigger.

But, yes, this bike rips!

He says that with the akrapovic and the upmap the rpm limit goes up to 15,000, is that true?: eek:

Sorry that's incorrect. Alessandro Valia posted up an official time of 1'36.8 Track record is 1'29.4 by Jorge Lorenzo on a Yamaha, so actual difference was 7.4 seconds not 4. Still impressive all the same.

No, that is correct. Nobody said Valia rode within 4 secs of the track record. He was comparable to the MotoGP field backmarkers. On a road bike, essentially.

How about this statement:"You can go into the corner too hot and you will still make the apex". That sounds nonsense to me. If you can make the apex you were not "too hot" by definition.

Lot of bullshit from reviewers but that is what you always get. Bike is awesome and we knew it should be.
