[kropotkin thinks...] - Guest Blog: Mat Oxley - Why inline-four MotoGP bikes handle b

If you enjoyed reading this article, please click here to view it on Kropotkin's site, MotoGP Matters.

-----------------

V4 MotoGP bikes make more power, inline-fours handle better. Thatís why Johann Zarco, Jorge Lorenzo and others struggle when they switch from inline-fours to V4s

Speak to most MotoGP engineers and they will tell you that the two most important words in race-bike engineering are balance and compromise.

Pretty much whatever you do to improve one area of performance impairs another: you make the bike turn quicker and it becomes less stable, you increase peak power and you lose midrange and so on.
