Michael Jordan Motorsports’ AMA Road Race Team announced the 2013 livery for their Suzuki GSX-R 1000 motorcycles high atop the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) on the 103rd floor of the Skydeck in Chicago.

Matching your bike to your sneaker – the Air Jordan XX8 shoe?  That’s great marketing but isn’t that a bit too superficial for the motorcycle crowd?

Actually, no.  On the other hand, Michael Jordan Motorsports was saavy enough to hire two of the best pilots  in the AMA road racing business to pilot their beast of a motorcycle:

  • Danny Eslick, one of the most exciting racers to watch in AMA Road Racing today.
  • Roger Hayden, the most recent in a long history Hayden boys that dominate road racing in the US and across the globe.
  • The beast: beneath that paint scheme is a race outfitted Suzuki GSX-R 1000.

A flashy colored bike that matches a popular sneaker . . . that’s pretty hot.  Setting up that same flashy colored bike to race in the AMA Road Race championship with the potential to win . . . that’s molten lava.

Fashion marketing meets function to the max … brilliant!

There aren’t any complaints here.  Carry on Michael Jordan Motorsports . . . and good luck in 2013.

What do you think about this paint scheme?  See if you agree with others and take our poll below?

MotoGP Champions Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo

Valentino Rossi testing at Circuit of the Americas

Somebody Looks Pretty Intense . . . Game On!

MotoGP Champions Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo and the Yamaha Factory MotoGP Team arrived in Texas to test out the new Circuit of the Americas (COTA) track in preparation for the upcoming MotoGP race in April.

Valentino Rossi’s Initial Thoughts on the Circuit of the Americas (COTA)

“I really like the track, my first impression is that it is beautiful. It’s very flowing with a lot of fast corners and a lot of change of direction; it is fun on the bike! There are three hairpins that are very tight; this is better for Formula 1 overtaking, but for us they are a bit slow. In general the track is good. There is some downhill and uphill and first braking zone is very good.

We have to understand which tyre to use, but the asphalt surface doesn’t have any rubber on it at the moment so there is not so much grip at the moment. The uphill at turn one helps to stop the bike, which is beautiful. For me turn two is the best though and after you enter into the chicane which is very similar to Silverstone. The straight is very long, which is maybe good for overtaking.

The city is great, the atmosphere is very good so I think it is a very good place for a race. It’s very important to have this time as the track is so difficult, there are a lot of blind corners where you have to understand where to brake.

We will continue to work on the line to understand the track and also to increase the rear grip on the bike as we suffer in acceleration. The first feeling is positive.

It’s important for MotoGP to have a third race in America, we have a lot of good riders from the USA so it’s right to be here.”

Jorge Lorenzo Testing at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA)

Jorge Lorenzo’s Thoughts on the Circuit of the Americas (COTA)

“I think it’s very important to come here and learn the track. I haven’t learnt 100% of it, I need more laps to learn my lines, but for the moment it’s a very beautiful track which is very complete with every kind of corner.

In the beginning it was difficult to understand the lines but I have improved 3 seconds from the first lap today, that means it’s a hard track to learn and a difficult track to go to the maximum on. I think it helps more than some other places to have this extra time. I think three or four practices before the race will not be enough to understand it so some of the riders who didn’t come here will have a little disadvantage.

The wind has been a little bit of a problem, especially on the longer straight where you arrive over 340km/h, you feel a lot of unstable feelings. Almost all the track is tricky, there’s some very hard braking and also tight hairpins. The first sector is flowing but it is very hard to find a good line because it’s blind.

We’re getting used to the track but also trying to solve a problem at maximum lean where we don’t have full confidence. We have to change the setting a bit to make it better. The tarmac is not perfect with only four bikes on it to clean it so it’s difficult to understand if it’s very grippy or not. It’s hard to know if it will be much better at the race weekend or just a little bit.”
