Looks just like the GP6 with a little different paint job.

CHROME??? Oh lord, shades of Harley Davidson chrome obsession ;D ;D ;D


cdc

BTW, does it look smaller than the GP6? Honda's RC212V looks really small at least with Nicky on board.

Sounds similar in concept to McLaren paint, which I always thought looked schweet. I'm not sure how I feel about the big barcode on the side, but it still looks better than most other motogp bikes (like the RC212V :-X).

If you scan that barcode it'll read Marlboro.......

The marlboro logo was always on the front. Looks like that's the American version since ther eare no tobacco sponsor logos allowed here.. ::)

They're also not allowed in the EU. Starting this year. Alot of teams have dropped their tobacco sponsors and some tabacco sponsors have bowed out. I wonder if we'll see an advertising tie in to the MotoGP team for SanDisk here in the US. I doubt it.

That is a sweet looking 'sickle!

I have always wonderd why Ducati never has a logo on the bike in magazines. But I have seen a INDY car that is sponsoed by Marlboro? Is this rule just for teams outside the US?

there were non-us races last year where the yammy team bike/leathers sometimes said "team" in the camel font, sometimes said "camel". at the same races sometimes the duc bikes/leathers would say marlboro, sometimes they wouldn't... there were definitely races where one would be running the tobacco co name and one wouldn't. sepang comes to mind. now camel has dropped their gp sponsorship and marlboro hasn't. and why wouldn't the gp7 be sporting the sponsor name when it's just a press introduction (in italy) ^^?

so i have no idea what the deal is there.
