I really wish they would remove all wings from the GP bikes. So ugly. Honda was the only bike that still looked good. Their hidden areo with-in the fairing was smart and clean looking. Now they are just like everyone else. Understand why. Just don't like it.

Iíve mentioned it before but as someone who develops some tech for F1, I can tell you that the level of importance placed now on aerodynamics over just about everything else other than reliability. Itís inevitable that comes to MotoGP.

An average front F1 wing has over 40 elements. Todayís aerodynamics are why cars with 2/3 the power and 4/5 the tires lap the tracks 10% faster.

Motorbikes have a very different cornering dynamic but aerodynamics will have to be incorporated more. Your only chance if MotoGP remaining wing-free is if the governing body deems them a hazard (like if someone loses a finger to a wing or something) or if they feel it detracts from the sport.

Your request is noted. This forum is notoriously difficult to post pics on so I (like so many others) have to use TapaTalk. It usually posts the pics in a "medium" size but I'll see what I can do about posting large ones just for you. You're welcome.
Thanks from Blade Runner

Wings on bikes got banned in the late 1970's

Sherpa23 please understand I was totally kidding. I know this place is crazy with trying to place pictures. I was just having some afternoon fun.
