I have posted a story about Honda and their new bike.

But given the regs are staying much the same is this unusual in MotoGP?

Is it more often a case of just evolving last years bike?

honda are making a new rc212v because last years('07) bike was a dog and was a result of the techies heading down the wrong engineering route.

there was probably a contingency plan in place at the start, but i am pretty sure that a new bike was mooted only agter the first free practice in qatar when they all saw the ducati motor past them all....

usually the bikes evolve but its a case of no matter how much you polish it, its still a turd.....that only won 2 races in 2007
