Where do you pick this up from? they look like little or no problems so far. Most commetns are based around the unexpected lack of chewing up tyres.

The Honda Two stroke is known for smooth power, then you gotta think that the 2 stroke Honda gives tires a break while going into corners with no engine braking, while the GP1 bike has plenty of engine braking, and they are running into corners in gear... and the power is just as mean as the 2-stroke bike, just more of it. It's not always the power that kills tires it's suspension set up too. Rossi is not commenting on it directly but he has been complaining of the tire longevity.
