I believe in 2013 the minimal weight for these bikes was set at 350lbs. So I would assume it is right at that if it still holds. Not sure whether they measure from the crank or wheel for power.

Damnn. If it comes in at 350 dry that would be insaine.

Do they have a max weight that you know of.

MotoGP bikes always look like alien technology when you at it closely - a bunch of random tubes and solenoids in uncommon places. Comparing these photos to Ducati's GP15, there are some real similiarities between the two. I wonder what Ducati has up it's sleeve....

I don't think so. I'm sure they could make them as heavy as they wanted to but that little motivation about winning keeps them really close to minimum.

Also they only list specs that they must. They won't say what it weighs. They'll just say they meet minimum spec. I think the minimum weight this year is 160kg which just nudges over 350lbs. Not insane considering how much titanium is used in the bike and how tiny they are. Those RCV's are quite smaller than our CBR600RR's. The Yamaha is about the same size as our 600RR.

not sure what you mean by "smaller"

the rcv is about 4 inches longer than the cbr 1000rr.


and 160kg is brutally heavy for mgp bikes. this is about as heavy as they've ever been. check the weights on some of the old gp500s


nvm i'll do it for you. in 1990 they were 115kg. that's 99lbs lighter than they are now.

Not wanting to make an argument out of friendly appreciation of Honda's finest but yes, smaller. It may be longer in wheel base according to specs. I'm sure swingarm proportions are hella different to our streetbikes. It could even be setup taller I suppose. Dunno. Not comparing numbers. I've never ridden an RCV (as if) but I've been up close & personal with one. Smaller. Way compact. Slimmer some. Scrunched from nose to tail. I'm 6'2" w/ a proportional reach. Squatting down next to the RCV I could pretty much touch the nose & tail at the same time. Forget riding it. Way too cramped for someone my size. Would not be fun. I've been on an RSV4 and while compact is surprisingly comfy. The RCV is a tight little ball of power with forks & swingarm sticking out of it. Sits there like a little pit bull. The M1 has more generous proportions & the Ducati is like a truck in comparison.

I'm with you about the weight. MotoGP bikes are anchors. Heavier than they've ever been. Don't like the trend although I hear they'll drop min weight by 6kg or something next year. A good start but barely digging into the matter. I'm a fan of the 500's for sure. Better formula. The bikes didn't need as much power as they were so much lighter. Wonder how they would have developed had they continued. I'm sure with all the electronics that have been laden on the modern bikes they would have tamed their power deliver & made them sweet, light, little missiles.
