2017 MotoGP Season Could Be Exciting

I had a quiet chuckle to myself last week as Jorge Lorenzo wobbled out on his new Ducati during the MotoGP test at Valencia and was about 12 seconds off the pace.

However, the wily Spanish superstar had the last laugh as he got to grips with the power-packed Ducati GP16 and ended up well inside the top 10 fastest times and only a little over a second off the fastest.

Maverick Vinales was also moving to new team and he too, impressed. Actually he did a while lot more than impress. He scared the pants off the MotoGP paddock and his Yamaha team-mate, Valentino Rossi, in particular.

The Suzuki MotoGP bike he’s ridden to such good effect over the last two years is a good machine, the Yamaha is a great one and in the hands of Maverick Vinales it looks like Marc Marquez will have another title contender to deal with when the season kicks off March 2017.

While it’s far too early to really see how well Sam Lowes or Bradley Smith will fare, Cal Crutchlow and Scot Redding seem to do very well. MotoGP 2017 is already looking like being one hell of a season!
