Yamaha vs Honda – Between a week and half the MotoGP will return on track. Officially the second half of the season will begin. In August, the riders will run at Red Bull Ring, in Austria, in 14 and soon after, 21 in Brno, Czech Republic. Then, MotoGp will run in Silverstone, England, on 4 September and Misano, the next September 11. After it will remain only the San Marino GP, September 25 and Motegi, on 16 October. Then Phillip Island, in Australia and Sepang, in Malaysia. Finally, the second Sunday of November Valencia, Spain, will host the last round. Yamaha vs Honda continues.
The 2016 MotoGP World Championship is coming to its end. Marc Marquez is in first place. The Honda’s rider has 48 points more than Lorenzo and 59 more than Rossi. Honda doesn’t forget a very important result, the brands title. If in fact the Yamaha won the Triple Crown last year – pilots-brands-team – this is the goal of the HRC this year. Incredible if you think that at the beginning of the season the Honda bike was inferior than the Yamaha.
Yamaha vs Honda: Team Championship is quite Closed
The couple Lorenzo-Rossi with the Yamaha M1 won 5 times and 9 podiums in total (and only with the two riders). While Honda won 4 races (one with Miller) and 10 podiums in total, thanks to Pedrosa and Crutchlow. If the fight for the constructor title is still open, it seems that Honda has an easy life in the teams Championship, where it is in front of the Yamaha Factory with 33 points. A difference points obtained thanks to the reliability of Marquez. This year he realized that to finish first before you get to the finish line.
Yamaha vs Honda: Marquez passes the M1
At the beginning of the season, the Yamaha M1 was the best bike, but is it really true? If we think of the 2015 definitely Yes. This year the M1 showed a weakness: the engine, which broke twice at Mugello. In addition, Michelin tires seem to fit better with Valentino rather than Jorge.
Worst road holding, handling and engine. For many the Honda wouldn’t make a good world championship. Shuhei Nakamoto admitted that the HRC had to work on the electronics being passed by your unit to Marelli, hardware known to rivals. Defects, if there were any, have decreased rapidly. Both in Argentina than in Texas, Marquez won. Then this Honda is not as bad as people said. Yamaha vs Honda? Perhaps Honda.
