Imagine that, two of the top three are riding "Motor of Death" I4s with the second-place being held by an antiquated V-twin.... when will they learn, the future is all about V4s...... oh wait Biaggi is top V4 down in 12th....:cool:

Don't feed the Troll. Biaggi is leading the championship.

What the hell happened to Rea? I thought he was gonna be up there fighting for a win every race, guess I was wrong.
It appears his accident in qualifying at Miller was more serious than it seemed. He was forced to skip the Suzuka 300km earlier this month and even his appearance at the 8 Hours (he was contracted to ride a TSR "works" bike in both events) is now in doubt.

Max takes a double... again!
:rockon
Harks back to his days in 250; combo of Aprilia and Max are on top this season. Only dark spot on the horizon, Max is the only Aprilia rider on top like Ben was the only R1 rider last season. Next season, new bikes from the big 4 and new competition. It's a great series imo, better than MGP.

Max and the Aprilia are the class of the field right now. Kudos to Aprilia....fast bike that handles well enough to get the job done.

I predict another double for Max at the next event and to walk the championship. Very cool, for a new bike.

S'funny how Yamaha found another 12 HP this year compared to SPies' bike and yet Crutchlow is not doing much. Haslem still surprisingly fast on the old Zook, but I think he's time has come and gone for this season.
Works Ducati team still struggling. Shame on them that Checa is so fast on the private Duc. Hope that Duc start to feed him all the good stuff!
Rea surprisingly uncompetitive....

I predict the rest of the year in WSBK and MotoGP is going to get very boring as Biaggi and Lorenzo walk away with the championships.

The Aprilia looks strong everywhere. Tight tracks, fast tracks, they have the machine that can win on all of them. Max seems to be brimming with confidence and dare I say it looks like the Biaggi of the mid 90's (also on Aprilia) who would annihilate the field in 250GP.

I agree. It actually gets boring when someone takes off. That us why Sbk last year was so great. Oh well I'll still watch. I'm cheering on Max, not the machine.

Boy , the RSV4 really started to fly once they introduced the geared cams ... which the street version doesn't get .:banghead Serious cop out Aprilia . BTW , there is now a basic racer (Biaggi Replica) for only $63,400 ! Not sure if the new cam drive made it onto this one .

Technically, the stock RSV4 uses a combination of chain and gear-driven cams:

Space is further saved by a very unusual design for driving the dual overhead cams. Only the inner (inlet) cams are driven by chains which in turn, drive the outer cams through a series of gears between each pair of cylinders. The importance of a highly compact v configuration....

Not true - in 2009 the RSV4 was always near the top of the top speed chart and the first time it actually topped that chart was at Monza. IIRC, the conversion to full gear-driven cams was for top-end tuning refinement and had a very slight reduction in actual HP overall.

But ignore the facts since the Aprilia hate here at Squidzilla has always been strong...:p
