While it's true that many production motorcycles have over the years lubricated their gears by "splash" (that is, by filling the gearbox with oil up to the shaft centerlines or thereabouts), this method has drawbacks. The biggest is power loss through oil churning. Everyone who ran one of...

With MotoGP's summer break officially underway (and just days away from now concluding), Asphalt & Rubber sat down with Randy Mamola at the finish of the US Grand Prix at Laguna Seca, to get the Grand Prix legend's perspective on how the 2013 MotoGP Championship was shaping up so far in his...

On the Monday after the Austin round of MotoGP, the Suzuki team stayed on to do an extra private test, which we attended. Aleix Espargaro and Maverick ViƱales had hoped to start relatively early, but heavy overnight rain left the track both wet and dirty, taking some time to dry out. When they... 

The Danish physicist and father of quantum physics Niels Bohr is reputed to have said "Prediction is hard, especially about the future." Just a few days after our comprehensive silly season update was posted, at the World Ducati Weekend event, Andrea Dovizioso, Andrea Iannone and Cal Crutchlow... 

Car and Driver magazine recently proposed that "turbo-compounding is the next big thing in energy recovery." We pull down any one of the standard internal combustion engine texts and see that the chemical energy of the fuel goes into three big channels: power to the crankshaft, heat rejection to...
