Aren't they starting a bit late? As a [new] motorcycle racing fan who wants to see a great season (Speed Channel willing), I sincerely hope Suzuki and Aprilia can compete with Honda and Yamaha, but they're, what, two months behind in development? It may take them part of the way into the season to get the bike fully 'sorted'.

Also, I'm not familiar with Lucchi, but I know who Laconi is from World Superbike in 2001. He was good but not 'great'. I hope he or somebody else can do Aprilia's engineering justice. Honda+Rossi looks pretty hard to beat, and I'm sure Yamaha+Biaggi won't be far behindl.

Nice stirring description of the sound of the 'Cube', although being an Aprilia press release, of course it's a bit partisan.

Here's what I'd love to see from Motorcycle Online: a full preview of the 2002 MotoGP two/four stroke season. All the riders, their 'colors' or major sponsor (like factory -vs- privateer), very brief history and sort of the 'odds' of them winning, the brand of bike they will be riding and whether it's a 500cc or a four stroke, and a brief bit about the weight, power, and engine type.

What of: Ducati, Kawasaki, Drysdale, Sauber, Triumph, MuZ, Suzuki, Mondial, MV Agusta, and Baindl?
