Has anyone seen the 2004 bikes for MotoGP? Some of them look pretty much the same as last year, others look quite a bit different.
I like the new pipe, and the central ram air intake on the front, but i think last year's paint scheme (Alice) was cooler looking. They have apparently made some signifigant advancements in the way of technology and control this year, so we shall see.
Cosmetically, it basically looks the same. I am sure they have made some updates, but Honda generally likes to keep somewhat tight-lipped about these things. Will it still be ahead of the pack without Rossi?
I absolutely loved the look of last year's model of ZX-RR. This new one looks more narrow and svelte, though. Apparently, they have been working their asses off trying to make a more controllable chassis. Power was never a problem with over 220BHP on tap.
I love the look of the fat Termi pipe. Rossi has proven in testing that this bike can most definitely keep up with the pack this year. But will it only be competetive in his hands?
This is one team i would really like to see on the podium a couple of times this year. They have been working on their new V5 configuration since the middle of last season, and it looks promising. Taking on the big factories is certainly like david-and-goliath.
The GSV-R has undergone some cosmetic surgery and looks dead-fucken-sexy like this. The V4 is right in the thick of things in the power race. During testing, Kenny Roberts Jr. has shown how much this machine has improved over last year's.
This is one of the most powerful bikes on the track. If you have seen it on Tv or the internet, you also know that it sounds fucken awesome. Capirossi had some really good finishes last year, and i am sure this year will be no exeption. As far as I know, Xaus and Hodgson will be on 2003-model Desmo's.
