Im pretty sure not one 250cc bike could destroy me...maybe with Rossi on it...there comes a time when Skill is indeed taken by technology.

You forget moto3 are 250cc's. I think you also under estimate how fast a 250 can really go on a track. I bet every last person in the red bull ktm cup series would destroy you(and me).

I watched your videos and know your lap times. When you are 20 sec slower than the bike is capable of its all down to rider skill. Your reference of passing a cbr is still just as dumb and pointless as ever.

Never ridden a bike with electronic suspension before, the Multistrada I am looking at has it. How does it compare to a non-electronic suspension? Just curious Neon.

A prototype series with bike not available to the general public and where bank accounts help win championships Honda wins hands down.

A production series with bikes based off street models Honda has been left behind a long time ago.

Again, they make a great street bike but you can't compare a MotoGP outfit to what you buy at a dealership.

Not the same as a 2015 SP, is it. It's not even the same as a 2012

OKay, so now your talking about a 250cc MOTO3 bike vs a street bike...

LOL is all I can say.

For a person who rides street and track..its awesome. If i had a dedicated track bike...i might be inclined to go the manual route more. But the versatility is aweome. Mind you, you still have to dial it in for geometry and weight.
