    The sound on SpeedyGee's clip did sound very artificial. I have heard an actual clip of the real engine and it does sound far better than that.

    They've had turbo's before and they sounded very good, I've no reason to suspect the new engines won't sound just as loud or as good as previous engines.

    Let see what Honda do to the small capacity turbo engines, if their motogp bikes are anything to go off they will sound awesome.

    Doc check this video http://hondakarma.com/posts/49819/

    The new RC213v sounds superb.

    Casey just came in for a guests ride and give direction for the motogp bike and the road going motogp replica.

    I would like to see him back racing on bikes but Honda are working on him :Wink: to come out of retirement.

    I hope he does come out of retirement he is a great rider.

    I don't understand why he retired so early in his career, or why he seemed to do it just as he was reaching the hight of his career. I understand why people want to get out why they are on top, but it still seemed, to me at least, a few years premature. He still has a few championships in him.

    I really never understood his retirement either, Honda offered a sizeable increase to his package to retain but the was not enough. He just wanted out for some reason .. Personally I don't see him coming back for a few years.
