I think that they are afraid that Dovi might beat Pedrosa too. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif[/img]

The new chassis would need the new engine with it, and probably new electronic packages. The deal at the start of the year was for the satellite teams to run 07 bikes all year, i expect Honda to stick to that unless they sort Dovi out early.

that's the cold reality of running a satellite team.

Boy isn't that the truth. Plus that is also why I think they want him on the factory squad so they can make his bike how THEY want instead of how the rival team wants. Keep your enemies close as they say.

Are you guys having a bit of a laugh or you actually think that HRC want to hire a good rider to sabotage them for the benefit of another rider?

I Ride: RC213V
Can't see them getting anything this year. They have only just started getting the bike sorted now. I can't remember the last time HRC got a bike so wrong. If you aren't attached to any of the riders it's actually pretty amusing to see Honda making such a meal of the this season and the last.

Thx Tom.. so we won't see HRC bike will be moved to the satellite team very soon...
