well there's definatly something to be said for the placebo effect.
still tho, they fucked up huge, and I have no idea how they're gonna recover this one, it's gonna cost them market share period, end of storey.
The press are gonna have a field day on this one, but it IS setting alot faster lap times than last years model, to say that it's last eyars model only different fairings is JUST as much a crock of shit as the 17500 redline is.
for starters, last years model the frame was a wraparound using the motor as a stressed piece. have you looked at the frame on the 06? And I have a hard time believing that they faked the slipper clutch.
the fly by wire I imagine is the same system the M1 uses, it's an engine braking aid, that's all, not a true fly-by wire like the RScube was using.
