I still feel that I am sensing some Honda/HRC bullshit. They seem to be blaming the lack of success on the Pirelli tires not suiting the CBR, so they will develop the next one to work with them. They have never won the WSBK or any other major series with the CBR and they want to blame the tires? That bike has always been a POS on the track compared to all of the competition. They are just now taking it seriously? I believe the 2020 will also suck and they won't have success until they do a total redesign of the bike. Maybe this one is actually significantly better, but I doubt it. It looks like Honda is just looking to save face by blaming the tires and the teams they have been supporting. Next year it will be Puig's fault.
