Because in those years the Honda builders and riders sucked, remember?

Yamaha was 4th and Suzuki 5th in Race 1

Undefeated in MotoGP at COTA is good enough for me

Since (technically) Honda has only won a single race this year, this thread seems to have died. Wonder why?

Well, I don't count sidecars. Those are just Honda powerplants and full custom everything else without Honda input. Which is probably why they aren't listed as a "Honda" win. Other than those, the Superbike race is all they have. When I see one of those sidecars on Stubbs showroom the I'll call them a Honda

You realize there's another Superbike race yet to be run. How'd Yamaha do in IOM Superbike?

FYI, HRC doesn't have an IOM team.

No there are no true "factory" teams at IoM so, yes, I know that HRC doesn't have a company dog in the fight. Yes, I know the senior TT has yet to be run but again, if the Superbike class machines (200+HP) are the only races the Honda can win yet they can't win a real WSBk race, it's time to re-think your race replica line. Everyone else has stepped up their game and Honda no longer has the dominance at the IoM that they had 2 or 3 years ago.


Yamaha won both supersport races this year and Kawasaki won both Superstock races.

Only thing that frustrates me about the TT is having to explain (every year) to my wife how the guy who came across the line in third can actually be the winner.

But since Honda doesn't have a factory team then they didn't really. That team won and set a new record.

That's alright, I don lt care much about IOM. I get to laugh that two underpowered suzukis out qualified every Honda in motogp.
