THE 2017 SEASON: UNPARALLELED
BATTLE OF BRANDS & PILOTS
THIS SEASON’S QUEEN MOTORCYCLING CATEGORY WON’T HAVE PRECEDENTS, AT LEAST OVER THE PAST YEARS. HONDA, YAMAHA AND DUCATI ARE JOINED BY THE POWER OF SUZUKI AND APRILIA, PLUS THE ARRIVAL OF KTM AS AN OFFICIAL
TEAM. IF THIS IS NOT ENOUGH, MARQUEZ, ROSSI, VIÑALES AND LORENZO, AMONG OTHERS, WILL DO THEIR BEST TO WEAR THE CROWN. TWELVE TEAMS, TWENTY-THREE RIDERS AND EIGHTEEN GP ARE THE MAIN INGREDIENTS OF THE MUCHANTICIPATED SEASON.
There are two important aspects to be taken into account: the presence of Viñales in the official team and the signing up of Jorge Lorenzo by Ducati. What could I say about the first element? I’ve always been a fan of Rossi and I want him to win many races and another championship, but Maverick Viñales didn’t join Yamaha to be in the second position. There are going to be more black looks than handshakes at Movistar. Honda’s golden-wing charger will be ridden by Marc Marquez, who has proven to be the
best rider of the moment.
