Except those things existed on the RCV211.

Obviously though because of the electronics that's why everyone is able to do it now. I just think of all the times Rossi, Dovi and Lorenzo pick the bike up with their elbow after they lose the front.

Read again.
Traction control even existed on even the NSR.

The point was that they were nowhere as sophisticated as they are now.

Ever ridden anything with first gen ABS? Compare that to a modern day bike. Tech has come a long way in 20 years.

Except according to Rossi the spec ECU is like stepping back in time. Just admit it to yourself, Marquez can do things Rossi could never do. Things like saving crashes with his elbow, winning 20 races on a control tyre and winning multiple championships on a control tyre.

So you're saying that advanced technologies in GP motorcycles developed by factories is enabling riders to ride faster and push performance envelopes further and further?

I agree.

Question is, would Jorge mesh with the Honda? The bike is developed around Marc, and his and Jorge’s riding styles are day and night.

Didn't wait until Mugello to end the partnership. I hope this isn't the end of Lorenzo in moto gp.

I'm assuming that the article says Lorenzo and Ducati have parted ways then?
