Hopefully Jezza can get some good results this year. They should be running this bike hopefully by race 2 or 3.

i hope but dont think it be very successfull , they should have gone for V6 same weight limit --

Clearly, they built the wrong motor. Honda probably should have built a V6, too, cause the V5 they built obviously doesn't stand a chance...

Incidentally, I am pretty sure that twins and triples have the same weight limit, fours and fives are grouped together, and 6+ has a higher weight limit, so a 6 would not have the same weight limit as a 5.

In an interview this weekend K.Roberts explained, after being asked about the developments of his V5, that "the pistons showed some form of incompatibilty with the cilinders aomewhere around 14.000 rpm." Nice way to sya the engine is shite.

Keny Roberts should have hired a tuner like Kenamoto to squeze more power out of thier old 2 stroke and with more wind tunnel testing should put it in front of few 4 strokes , developing a V5 cost an arm and legg and it will fail anyways

Twins and triples, 135kg
Fours and fives, 145kg
Six and more, 155kg.

Here's hopin' that Aprilias get the Cube racing close to its minimum weight, instead of the 145-ish it is now. Twenty-two pounds would make a big difference!

sorry my mistake -- it looks like rules favor honda --

cube is the most advanced but a complex engine with penuematic valve return system , engine management etc ..
