Honda, well Honda REALLY needs to work on their image in motogp.
, you'd have thought they would have changed when they lost Rossi back in the day, but they still seem like the same cold blooded corporate monster that they've always been. Everyones a number with those guys.

I hope Nicky does well with Ducati, but I am a diehard Colin Edwards fan and now that he has a competitive tire I think he will really shine in 09!

Actually...

"Although Kawasaki´s factory team have withdrawn from MotoGP the Ninja ZX-RR development continues rapidly, with the bike available for use by a private team in 2009."



As for the Yamaha... "Not one part of new M1 is the same as 2008 bike"

I'm REALLY hoping Ilmor picks yp the ZX-RR.

I can't wait to see Hayden racing on the Ducati though. That's what I'm probably most excited for this year.

Well IMHO, if Ilmor does not pick up the Kawasaki effort, there will not be one at all.

That's exactly why I'd like it to be picked up. I'd rather see it out there at least trying rather than not at all. I'm partial to Kawi, so m views are a little more off than most peoples.

I hadn't read anything about anyone besides Ilmor expressing interest, but if there is someone else who can probably do better, I'm all for it.

FYI, but that was a couple of weeks back

Kawasaki could still be involved in MotoGP this season after Aspar manager Jorge Martinez revealed he is in talks with series organisers Dorna to revive his stillborn project.

Aspar were close to graduating to the premier class in 2009 with a third Kawasaki entry, but the deal fell through after disagreeing on the manufacturer's choice of Shinya Nakano, rather than the Spanish rider Martinez's sponsors desired.

Nonetheless, Martinez claims to have been contacted by Dorna, who are desperate to retain a fifth manufacturer presence on the 2009 grid as it looks increasingly likely the series will start the season with a somewhat paltry 17 bike line-up.

Speaking to Italian newspaper Gazetta dello Sport, Martinez admits he is interested in reviving the project and keep Kawasaki racing as a privateer entry.

"Negotiations to take over the two Kawasaki (bikes) have started,” he said. “I don't know with certainty when or if this opportunity will become reality. I'm willing to negotiate. We'll see."

Although Aspar could face the same issues as last time if their sponsors demand a Spanish rider again, both John Hopkins and Marco Melandri would be tempting propositions for the team nonetheless.

Hopkins alone comes with extensive backing from energy drinks company Monster, while Melandri comes with experience that would prove tempting for a burgeoning team.
NOTE: Hopper has since lost Monster's backing to the Dr!!!
