Honda Test at Brno, new chassis for accelleration

Quote:
Marc Márquez and Dani Pedrosa will have a new chassis that will put to test in the two days of test that this Monday and Tuesday carry out in the circuit of Brno.

Honda's official team, along with Cal Crutchlow, is on track for the next round of the World Championship in early August, after the summer break.

It will be there where the brand of the golden wing will test a new chassis to try to correct the problems of lack of acceleration dragged by RC213V , since last season, and have had a major influence on the development of the first half of this.

Especially in the case of Márquez , the Catalan rider is forced to compensate for this deficit of acceleration in braking; A risky strategy that would explain the 12 falls that already accumulate in his locker, only five less than the 17 falls of Marc throughout 2016 .

In the collective test held at Montmeló last month, after the Catalunya Grand Prix , Yamaha introduced a new chassis with Valentino Rossi both as Maverick Viñales and played the last two rounds (Netherlands and Germany).

Asked about plans Honda, Marquez then showed quite skeptical, assuming that the Japanese constructor would hardly the key immediately.

Anyway, Honda does not rest and proof of it is this new chassis that both the championship leader (Márquez), as well as his partner and also Crutchlow, will be able to launch these two days in the circuit of the Czech Republic .

"There are small things that Honda brings and they can help, although nothing very big. We will try some chassis and some improvement, "said Márquez a few days ago in an advertising event.

"The tests in mid-summer are always good, both for the bike and for the driver, because that way you do not lose the pace", agreed the Catalan, after spending a few days resting in Mojácar (Andalusia) and returning to physical training.

Q. But you've tried the 2015 bike. Did you feel it was as aggressive as Marc, Dani and Cal Crutchlow say?
A. In my view it's not too aggressive. Engine development has grown, but you can change anything with engine mapping. The engineers can say, 'Okay, we're going to make it smoother'. I don't think that [the engine] is this bike's problem. Changing the chassis is more difficult. If you don't have grip at the back, any bike will seem aggressive.

From what has been said over and over, Honda does not have lack of acceleration because of spinning. It's the incessant wheelying that causes electronics to cut power which in turn affects acceleration

at least he was right about "the problem was not the engine", and "you should look at the chassis"

but the regular factory rider said, "I like the old chassis"

Big bang engine doesn't solve Honda's acceleration, the most positive feedback come with the engine was from Miller that said, "the bike was more easier to ride".
