The Grand Prix Revolution


Last year, the top of Grand Prix road underwent a shakeup of epic when the GP rulebook was rewritten to four-… racing motorcycles a 100 percent displacement advantage their two-… counterparts. rule change made motorcycles competitive in Grand racing events for the first since a very young Osborne invented heavy with a new rock ‘n’ combo called Black This new rule completely the face of Grand Prix and, as we are seeing in showrooms year, it’s also the production motorcycles that we on the street.

A little history: in Ozzy’s early days, motorcycles ruled the road and Two-strokes were light, and faster than stink. they did stink, spewing too unburned hydrocarbons for the exhaust of the world to tolerate.

By the mid ’80s, two-… streetbikes had outlawed on U.S. highways, they continued to rule Championship road racing just last year.

As as two-strokes were on the racetrack, manufacturers decided that it no made sense to spend upon millions of dollars two-… race bikes have absolutely nothing in with the four-… flyers on showroom floors. So manufacturers lobbying for a rules change would make more four-strokes competitive in Grand racing.

Because a 500cc two-… hand a 500cc four-… its on a platter under any conceivable the four-strokes were given a displacement advantage to equalize The premier 500 GP class was renamed and the manufacturers nearly simultaneously all two-… engine development in of building new four-… prototypes. GP bikes, for all intents and purposes, are

For a Super Streetbike rider yourself, this is classified as a thing; it means that the developed for the world’s most race bikes can now trickle to the bikes you drool over on the floor. In a couple of cases, it has. Here’s a breakdown of on the GP track this year and why you care.

What It Is: Honda RC211V

season, Honda’s V5-powered racer made the rest of the look silly. Sure, won a race or two, but the Hondas so dominant that these few almost seemed like throwing Yamaha a bone it was sick of seeing the competition over in submission. Damn did Hondas ever sound

Why You Should Care:

Don’t to buy a road-going RCV anytime soon a V5 streetbike of some sort, something along the lines of the seems a sure thing). A RC211V would cost as much as a new Porsche 911 Turbo, and it still be a pale imitation of Rossi’s ride.

However, at least one piece of from this monster has found its way to the street. The new CBR600RR a Unit-Pro-Link rear suspension on that of the RC211V. Other the fact that the top of the shock is to the swingarm instead of the frame, the of the suspension are too esoteric to be understood by a liberal arts major me.

What is clear is that it is effective at keeping the front on the pavement under acceleration. If lap times get you excited, you might this is a good thing. If, on the hand, wheelies are your then you might not think is so good.

What It Is: Yamaha YZR-M1

hard to get a handle on Yamaha’s entry because it was virtually a bike in every race year. Even Yamaha is referring to the ’03 version as the M1 and the M3, depending on what technician is Whatever the company calls it, it is a conventional motorcycle, a carbureted just like the first-generation streetbike.

Conventional or not, at one version of the M-whatever was fast to beat the dominant Hondas year.

Why You Should Care:

versions of the M-bike have spotted sporting dual shocks, sort of like a Harley-Davidson Sportster. Don’t for dual-shock rear suspension on the generation YZF-R1. More to make it to the street is Yamaha’s compression release system, prevents engine braking, rear wheel hop when

That’s great when hauling down for a tight but less great if you use engine to find your balance while doing wheelies.
