Lorenzo dan Crutchlow sepakat bahwa untuk Honda: motor ya motor


Lorenzo bilang bahwa motor Honda itu bukan motor yang cocok baginya:
Lorenzo: Honda was never going to be a natural bike

The Honda is never going to be a natural bike for me. The Honda is the Honda. It’s a bike that needs to be ridden by braking very late, getting the rear wheel crossed up, tipping the bike in quickly, and at a big lean angle.

Disebut kalau mengendarai motor Honda itu butuh ngerem sangat telat, buat roda belakang melintir, manuver secara cepat dan belok dengan sangat miring. Intinya harus agresif dan reaktif. Ia sebut motor Honda itu bukan motor yang natural, sama seperti ketika Zarco pindah dari Yamaha ke KTM.

Disimpulkan the Honda is the Honda. Motor ya motor.

Cal Crutchlow sepakat:
Crutchlow: “Class act” Lorenzo could make sudden breakthrough

the pressure on your arms when you’re braking the bike is very difficult to ride, physical. When I moved to Honda, I also said those things.

But Honda’s philosophy is you ride it, and that’s it. If Marc can ride it, and Casey [Stoner] could ride it at the time… it’s winning races, at the end of the day. Their philosophy has always been, the motorcycle’s the motorcycle, and you ride it how you get given it.

“Don’t get me wrong, they’ll work hard and they’ll work for him to improve that, but there will come a point where he’ll get used to it and he’ll start to go faster.”

Ia sebut memang tekanan di tangan pada saat mengerem sangat menyita fisik. Ia juga sempat mengeluhkan hal itu. Tapi filosofi Honda adalah naiki saja, sudah. Jika bisa naik maka bisa menang. Motor ya motor, dinaiki sesuai dengan apa yang diterima.

Memang Honda berusaha untuk mengakomodasi Lorenzo. Namun ada satu saat dimana Lorenzo akan terbiasa dan akan mulai lebih cepat.
