That's not a factory bike he is riding. As the season will unfold the technical gap will grow bigger and bigger.

Arm pump.

So you're saying you like the idea, you just want them to get better.

How do you expect them to get better- which implies measuring against the prototype machines- if they don't race?

Esentially a factory bike, but run by the Gresini team. Not a customer bike like the rest of the non-Repsol Honda bikes.

Factory stuff. Including the fancy gearbox. Honda had 4 factory bikes last year. With the new budget cuts they are down to 2 factory bikes.

From what I read the Repsol bikes and the Gresini bike don't even have the same frame. Or suspension. Bautista rides with Showa. Might be wrong. Maybe someone can confirm this.

Yes Showa, I mentioned this in another post, Gresini is running Showa on all 3 of their bikes. Alvaro has no one to compare notes with either and they've been out of MotoGP for 3 years so have some catching up to do.

I have great faith in the team, and the rider. Alvaro's a goer. He'll get up there...
