He is on a Honda and they are struggling in Moto 3 vs. the KTM powered bikes.
This. You would not believe the bitching from the Honda teams about HRC's lack of interest in improving their Moto3 engine. Overall, the FTR and Suter chassis are better than the KTM, but the KTM has a clear horsepower advantage. Slower tracks, the HP makes a bit less difference.
It's not just Fenati, it's all of the Honda riders.
I won't be home and can hope someone captures this and offers it. But if you are in the UK or can go to one of the streaming sites this sounds like a must see.

*REMINDER* The Unrideables, tonight at 9pm on ITV4 - DO NOT miss this... it'll be nostalgia for some but a history lesson for others
A documentary about the 500 era of motogp.
Good. I'd like to see another manufacturer or two in MotoII as well
But Jorge's such a cute little tyke.
Because the racing is not good enough? Personally not interested in another manufacture at all. That class does not need half the field out of contention because one engine is superior. I am not saying the series is perfect and I don't know the good/bad cost consequences of another(s) engine supply but if it aint broke.......
Yay, that comes just after BSB highlights. ITV4 can be seen on streaming HERE but I nave no idea how to capture this...

I'm in the UK and recording the programme, I don't mind copying it on to disc a few times and posting them out if someone's really desperate to see it - let me know.
PM me your address and I'll take care of it.
No, I love the series and always watch. But my scenario would triple viewers I'd wager. People are attached to brands as well as personalities. I like Honda but it'd be interesting to get other 600cc bikes in there IMO. I know the reasoning for all-Honda ie: keeping costs down, but still.
Why let KTM into MotoIII if otherwise? Same argument could be put forth for that series.
I´m a Brasilian fan of 2 strokes bikes!
I´m ever reading but it´s my very first post here!
Excuse my english...
too hard to get race movies in Brasil so I ask :
does any one have a link to download "The Unrideables"?
Thanks a lot!
Singles are cheaper and easier to produce. Moto 3 motors are real prototype motor.
In Moto 2, as a fan, I would love to see them with 2 or 3 cylinder motors, just to make the bikes more interesting. The wide Honda inline 4 makes the Moto 2 bikes fat and less beautiful. IMHO.
If the Moto 2 bikes were all based on the Aprilia SXV 550 motor...
... there'd be fewer finishers at the end of each race!
(speaking as the owner of one of those fine machines)
yeah. it'd be tough to get 130hp out of a 550cc twin. Reliably.
Coverage in the UK and Ireland is going to be worse from 2014, BTsports have announced that they are going to take over from the BBC and British Eurosport in an exclusive deal to show MotoGP from 2014.
I can't see myself paying 15 pm for MotoGP so its either pay 100 for the Dorna pass or setup another sat dish for a Continental sat feed.
Those stupid pricks at Dorna really know how to mess up a good viewership.
The BBC gets great coverage and the Brit Eurosport commentators are very good. I can't see the audience increasing with PPV.
But if they were narrower and lighter....
