JR

Jonathan Rea appears to be nearer the sharp end this year; how much genuine effort has been put in by HRC to improve the bike Jared?

I have long been of the opinion that he is better than the bike allows.

HRC

Let's just say that your supposition that Rea is better than the bike allows is correct.

Poor guy

Poor guy tantilized by the V4 HRC superbike project two seasons ago then left hanging. I sincerely wonder how that is for him when the bike isn't up to the task. He is heroic in returning to the moment and extracting the possible plus a smidge. I like that bike a bunch, and have a well sorted 600rr as my primary bike. It makes a solid rider of the so-so and does everything well easily. However...
Conversely, WOW MV 675 triple and the grabbing of SS pole while sitting most of Qual out w technical demons! Neat bike.
Now about that V4?
