That's horrible news, I'm sure that between the two riders, they will acquire new sponsors. Contractually, I really wonder what the real world effect will be on M7

I sure hope so, NH always seems to be up against it!
I lay some of the blame at least on the hugely disappointing production Honda MotoGP bike despite the hype!
Seems to me Drive M7 stuck around for the new variant, watched the testing unfold and said "No thanks", not another year of this......

Will Drive M7 sponsor another motorcycle brand? How are Drive M7 sales? What's the financial health of their company?

They're still in the game, just not with that team at MotoGP level

If you can link a legit article that claims it's Honda's fault, I'll be happy to read it

Not saying it's all them, read my OP, but lack of exposure and results due to a largely underwhelming Honda have to have played a part

Maybe, maybe not. Drive M7 might have money issues. Everyone that sponsors anyone other than Marquez have not dropped out

You'd be happy just to see these two out there wouldn't you lol!!

Gotta say though I admire greatly the Honda/Repsol collaboration, through thick and thin and everything in between.
