I'm not denying Nicky was most likely motivated by money for the last 2 years at Aspar. In fact myself and Jums at least that I recall expressed our disappointment that he didn't take the factory Ducati WSBK offer, but don't fool yourself into thinking that he wasn't offered big money by Ducati for that either.

A lot of us were duped by Honda's claims about the RCVRS. Even Aleix Espargaro said he wouldn't have signed with Forward had he known Aspar were getting them, but he dodged a bullet on that one. Sure, Hayden was lured by money to an extent, but these were his options:

Go to Ducati WSBK on a brand new bike that is unknown and possibly be fighting for top 6.

or

Get a Production GP Honda that supposedly was only 0.3 off the then championship winning bike, easily putting him in the top 4 of GP.

It's always so clear cut with the benefit of hindsight, is it not?

Finally, I know you are a Rea fan but if he is solely trying to be great why didn't he offer to ride one of the Aspar RCV-RS bikes for free in MotoGP 2014 when it was claimed it was only 0.3s off the Repsol bike instead of collecting the money at Ten Kate? And why didn't Honda put him on ANY Honda bike in MGP?

Fucking ace.

May I quote Kropo about the Honda production racer? Nah, what for.

Nobody knew it would be an epic disaster, to the contrary, everybody 'knew' it would be an out of the box satellite bike to rival Tech3, a bargain for a million-five. Teams were lining up to ante up to buy one. Even the daddy everyone likes to shit on because he'd have the audacity to finance his son's career. The Honda proddy was thee best marketed farce that it seems Honda deployed moles to forums to create the facade of excitement, Insider anyone?

Turned out to be the biggest piece of shit ever perpetrated on the unsuspecting satellite suckered who purchased the glorified CBR.

What has happaened to the old RCV RS bikes now? They weren't leased, they were bought, so Honda can't take them back and crush them.

Might we be seeing a few up for sale on eBay or something?

Probably straight into some rich flog's collection, never to see daylight.

The 0.3 sec thing was a load of shit. But anyone spending a million + without looking at some data sheets needs their head read.
Ahhh. The Insider thread. Good times

Oh come on! Anybody knows a sbk duc can't be bad. Everybody knows honda fuck their customers royally and the worst was to be expected of the cheap bike.
Why didn't rea get onboard a shit honda? Probably because he's enjoyed an education beyond the 6th grade and isn't boning his cousin and hence wasn't stupid enough.
Sry bro but you won't sell me on this. Rea and hayden cannot be compared here.
If you REALLY THINK that the proddy racer finishing anywhere in the top 10 was an option then you probably piss against electric fences
